Message from the Guild co-Chair​
Warm end of summer greetings from Oak Grove Island! My name is Cathe McEnerney, and I am the newest member of your Co-Chair team! Some of you will know me already, though I am a newer member of the GIFG, having retired here with my husband in July of 2020 from the University of Chicago and our life as Resident Deans. We are loving retirement, he on the golf course and me in my studio, also known as our front room! I am a past national president of the American Needlepoint Guild, Inc. and remain to this day an active member of this organization. ANG gave me the opportunity to grow as a stitcher and to belong to a group of people who share my love of needlepoint, and of creating. ANG also gave me my best friends and I spend time each week over Zoom with them, stitching away and sharing our lives. GIFG can do the same, bringing us all new projects and new skills as well as new friends who share this joy of learning and creating. I look forward to meeting you all and to working with my co-Chair Jeanne Cieszeski this year as we plan for the 2024 shows, introduce a new website and learn more about the creativity happening in each of our amazing groups. Join me in this grand adventure!

And I, Jeanne Cieszeski, am excited to be working with Cathe in my second year as Co-Chair. Our Guild is a wonderful way to extend the art – and love - of fiber into the future. We have so many talented members who are willing to share their skills and ideas. Last year we offered some member-led workshops and we hope to do the same in the coming year. Ideas and suggestions are welcome! Looking forward to the start of our next year.
