At our last meeting I learned that Phyllis Schiwal died in April. Phyllis joined the NeedleNerds about a year and a half ago. She was a nice addition to the group and we’ll miss seeing her. You can read her obituary here.
Our monthly evening meeting is this Monday, September 9th at 7:00 pm and our daytime meeting is Thursday, September 12th at 2:00 pm. Both meetings will be held at the Panera Bread restaurant on Chapel Hill Road.
Please note: We will be meeting at Panera Bread from now on…unfortunately the Coffee Fever Roasters coffeehouse closed down on August 12th. See this announcement from Rick & Gayla:

Michael’s now owns the online business of the now defunct Hancock Fabrics:
“We are excited to share with you that the legacy of Hancock Fabrics will continue, as the Bankruptcy Court has approved the sale of the on-line business of Hancock Fabrics, Inc. and its affiliated entities to Michaels Stores. Today, Michaels operates more than 1,200 stores across the United States and Canada.
