Seminars & Meetings

The GLR provides several education opportunities throughout the year. The largest event is the annual Seminar, held in the spring. There is also a class held in conjunction with the annual Fall Meeting. These events provide opportunities to learn new skills from nationally-known teachers in the company of other stitchers. Also, everyone gets to share ideas and experiences, and of course, have fun!
