EAC-VT | HumChallenge / Virtual Threads Humongous Challenge
The Humongous Challenge is a multi-year challenge set up by Sharon Boggon of pintangle.com ( http://pintangle.com ) fame. The challenge runs from 2017 until the end of 2020. The goal is to make a crazy quilt project using 2020 different items by the end of 2020. The 2020 items includes different fabrics, beads, threads, and embroidery stitches - with each specific fabric, bead, thread or stitch being counted only once in the project. It is indeed an Humongous Challenge! You can check out the guidelines at 2020 Crazy Quilt Guidelines ( http://pintangle.com/2020-crazy-quilt-guidelines/ ). Many of Virtual Threads members decided to pick up this challenge, and everyone is in different stages of their design process. In this group we share ideas, posts from Sharon, and photos of our progress. Many have decided to make several items as this is a wonderful stash buster project.   This is a restricted group; you must be a member to view and participate with its content. If you would like to join  this group please click here to request to join ( HumChallenge+subscribe@EAC-VT.groups.io ).

EAC-VT | Retreats / Virtual Threads' Virtual Retreats
The Virtual Retreats subgroup is closed and read-only (to both new "retreaters" and all posts) to activity until the next event. No posts, replies, photos or files may be added, but current content CAN be read and viewed. Stay tuned here and watch for announcements in VT Home for when the next Retreat is scheduled. Until then - keep stitching! *Check local times across our members * (the clocks will open in a new window) ( https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/personal.html?cities=256,80,265,250,753,175,196,47 ) Twice a year Virtual Threads holds a virtual retreat (of course!). They usually happen in the fall and also during the winter, when everyone usually needs a little pick-me-up from being stuck inside. We hide away in our homes with our stitching projects and our laptops or online devices (having previously explained to our families that we're "not home"). The retreat is a time of fellowship & stitching that allows us to have some personal time, get to know other Virtual Threads members a bit better, and make some solid progress on a stitching project of everyone's personal choice. For many members, retreats are favourite events. Having our own subgroup "room" means that we can play without disrupting the general email discussions in VT Home, or needing to sort out retreat players from the general activity. The subgroup gives us our own email address, photos, files and chat room, here in our own little retreat room. We're able to visit with each other, either via email or live chat, and stitch the day away. Everyone adds photos of what we're stitching on for the day, which inspires everyone else and who knows, we might even get some good hints back about our work. For discussion topics? Anything you'd like! Be sure to read through the Groups.io Wiki Help & How-To info ( https://eac-vt.groups.io/g/VTHome/wiki/home ) so that you can participate and enjoy in all of the activites.
