The Needlework Guild Association has a long tradition that dates back to its founding in 1885. The Sherman branch was organized in 1929 and hosts two event each year. Proceeds from the events help buy new clothing, linens and toiletries for persons in need. Money raised from this year’s tea goes to purchase more than 2,000 clothing items for hundreds of Sherman students.
The Sherman NGA officers are: Laura Koone, president; Janna Leinart, vie president; Lanetta Nix, secretary; and JoAnn Osburn, treasurer.
The tea was held on October 22 at the home of Daresa and Jason Sofey in Sherman. The Sofey home was featured in the Fall ‘08 issue of Texoma Living!.
