Spring Has Sprung for Sassy Stampers

Cherlyn Conway

The Sassy Stampers monthly club meeting was held on Saturday, March 19. With the pandemic somewhat under control and the fear of group settings having eased up, the club has seen a consistent rise in membership. Several new members joined us for their first time at the March meeting. Some have been residents of Robson varying three to ten years and just joined our club. It is so exciting to see this amazing club grow and flourish. We give a big Texas welcome to all our new members. We’re so glad you joined us, and we look forward to your sharing your creativity with us.

You might remember the nursery rhyme, “There was an old woman who lived in a shoe. She had so many children, she didn’t know what to do.” Our board has somewhat the same concerns—not with our shoe size, but how to expand our capacity in Room 104, since our club is experiencing this exciting growth.

As with any challenge, there are equal amounts of opportunity. The board got together and discussed the need to make sure everyone who wants to attend could and would feel safe in the environment we have for our meetings. The March meeting was the first session of “two a day,” and classes were held at 9 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. (if athletes can have them, why would it not work for us?). At the 9 a.m. class, I did notice some yawning and folks looking for coffee and asking themselves, “Am I really a morning person?” With a limit of 25 per class, both classes were well attended. At the early class, by the time the monthly business meeting was over, everyone was bright-eyed and anxious to get on with our project for this month. I see the “two a day” sticking around for a while.

Jean Euker, our project leader this month, introduced us to her adorable Easter card. As with every meeting, the table leaders were anxious and willing to assist us with guidance in cutting, coloring, and assembly of this cute holiday card. For this card, our subject was a precious little chick, easter eggs, and spring colors of yellow, green, and pink. As with most cards that are presented to us, you can change the idea for birthdays, anniversaries, etc. With a color, paper, and sentiment change, you have created another new card. Check out the CATC Room 104 window to see the spring cards made by some of the club members.

Our next “two a day” club gathering will be on April 16, at 9 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. Come join us. You won’t be disappointed! No tools or equipment is needed. You only need $3 and to RSVP to Lisa Olson at the number below.
