Machine Embroiderers of Oregon & Washington
New Member Application
M.E.O.W. is a non profit educational group comprised of persons interested in the field of machine embroidery and machine artistry. (almost anything except sewing garments). The objectives are:
1. To encourage and promote interest and knowledge in creative sewing machine artistry as an art form (appliqué, battenburg, cutwork, lace, charted needle, etc).
2. To develop friendships as a means of sharing with one another, methods, techniques and other ideas pertinent to machine artistry.
3. To encourage high ethical standards among those persons engaged in machine artistry as a hobby or as a profession.
Area groups meet on a regular basis where they have mini-classes, demonstrations, discuss new techniques, new materials, new supplies or sources and spend time with others who also enjoy the art of machine stitching. These meetings are educational and enjoyable and planned to further your involvement in machine stitchery and/or fabric embellishment.
The MEOW Newsletter is published and either mailed or emailed to the membership quarterly, it is their choice (please see "Dues" below for more information.) The newsletter contains pertinent informative articles, information about the Area Groups with meeting schedules, seminar information and a whole lot more.
Almost each year a Spring Seminar is held, it will depend on economics and Board of Director approval. At the seminar we have classes, lectures and demonstrations related to machine embroidery, otherwise, we try to have mini workshops in place of our yearly Seminar. We LEARN, we SHARE, and most of all we ENJOY.
I hereby apply for membership in the Machine Embroiderers of Oregon & Washington.
Dues are $35.00 a
year plus $10.00 if you wish a printed copy of
your newsletter each quarter. Our fiscal year is September 1
through August 31.
