Three Cheers for the Outreach Team!

What is Outreach in EGA? In the Fort Worth Chapter, it’s a lot of things: enabling the future stitchers of the world by teaching the art of stitching, promoting the many benefits of EGA membership to potential members, and engaging with our community to make it a better place. That’s not a one person job. In our chapter’s case, it’s a THREE person job!

Our members Lisa Slay, Deb Preissinger, and Garrett Kilgore are the three volunteers behind the Outreach team. We’re celebrating them in this blog post because they’ve gone and did it again: this time, they’ve created the Newbie News Flash video series. What’s more, they’ve launched our new YouTube channel in the process…a feat that’s been on my “to do” list since December. AND they’ve been featured in the EGA National blog on the website. You can check it out here.

Each month, the team will share a new Newbie News Flash video for our chapter members. We’ll also use the YouTube channel to share lots of other fun needlework escapades we get into in Fort Worth.

If you haven’t done it yet, hop over to our new YouTube channel and check out the first video in the series. It’s all about EGA National’s lending library, a benefit we all enjoy as active EGA members. And please make sure you hit that SUBSCRIBE button before you leave!

Speaking of Outreach, the next focused donation drive for the Safe Haven shelter will be school supplies. Please bring new school supplies for donation to our August meeting or you can drop them in our donation bin at The Stitch Niche any time during their business hours.

Volunteers are the key to making EGA a success and I hope you’ll join me in applauding our Outreach team, as well as every officer on our Board and every chair on our committees, for spending their valuable time making our chapter the best in the west!
