Prairie Textile Arts Guild met at the Ukrainian Center in Dickinson for the May meeting on May 11, 2002. An impromptu meeting was held at the center, presided over by President Carol Kapsner. The item of business was the continuation of membership in Dakota West Arts Council. Members agreed to keep up the membership and pay the fee. After the meeting, members were treated to a tour of the Centerís exhibits.
An organizational meeting was held for PTAG officers at the home of President Kay Miller on July 31, 2002. Discussion was held concerning what programs to have over the upcoming year. Suggestions included nunstitch, European needlework, quilting, finishing techniques, etc. Those present also decided, in lieu of the fact PTAG has no newsletter editor, members who have access to the Internet can go to the PTAG site for minutes and information concerning the meetings. Suggestions for members who did not have access included going to the library for access. It was decided that the September meeting would have members showing their summer needlework projects (finished and unfinished).
