Never let it be said that the SOTM Group is not dedicated … and adaptable. Despite Stay at Home, we still managed to get together via Zoom! We scheduled two sessions: one at 11:00 a.m. which is our usual starting time and one at 3:00 p.m. when we usually are wrapping up. SOTM members were encouraged to join either or both sessions so we could check in and see how the projects are progressing. We had 10 participants at each session; most were at both and a few attended one.
It was great to get together again, even though virtually, and catch up with the group. An added bonus was that the Zoom format afforded us the opportunity to chat with Brenda and Jacqui, who are remote members. So now we can put a few more faces to the names. We may repeat the experience even after we are passed the current situation so that members who cannot attend in person will be able to join us.
Without further ado, here are the April progress photos:
Sylvia has decided to work on A Different View by Kurdy Biggs this year. This design was our 2014 SOTM. She is stitching in the Black colorway which will be stunning.
We’re looking forward to the May stitching session, whether virtually or in person.
I’m glad to hear Zoom worked well. We’re going to give it a go if we can’t meet F2F in May. Interesting that you said you would consider continuing Zoom even past the current restrictions. The pieces are progressing nicely.
