    Sampler Sleuths This group meets the fourth Wednesday of the month (January-October) at Norma Tetrault"s house from 10 am until noon. The Sampler Sleuths are working on a number of different samplers. Each person chooses one from their stash this year to complete. Come and join us for a "stitching of the bands" (of the sampler). Since stitching makes you hungry, we often go out to lunch afterwards. We will be working on the Jean Farish piece at Sampler Sleuths!


    Beads! This group meets the second Monday of each month from 10 am until noon at Toni Alper"s home. You can work on your own project or, if you're new to beading, get help from our experienced beaders. We are working on the current beading GCC Keeping in Shape at these meetings.

    Group Correspondence Course (GCC) Meetings are at the Fee Avenue Library on the third Wednesdays of the month from 10 am to 2 pm. Two GCCs are being worked this Winter and Spring. The first: How Does Your Garden Grow by Carol Currier, a surface embroidery piece. The group meets on the third Wednesday of the month at the Melbourne Library on Fee Avenue. The Second: Keeping in Shape by Gwen Nelson, a beaded necklace. This group meets with the Beads! Group on the first Mondays of the month at Toni Alper"s house.. These GCCs will be worked on with a planned turn in date of October or November due to COVID-19 Quarantine. Sign up for the next set in the GCC book! We select the one (or two) with the most names! Contact Jineen, if interested. _________________________

    Welcoming Stitchers Program The Education Chair and other teachers have started a Welcoming Stitches Group to teach some of the basic embroidery stitches. These classes will meet at the Fee Ave Library on the 3rd Wednesday of the month from 12 - 2. If no Group Correspondence Course is being taught, the session may meet from 10 - 2. Each stitch will be taught for two consecutive months. This mini course setup is for anyone wanting to learn some of the types of stitching without the commitment of a General Correspondence Course. SCHEDULE BEING MODIFIED DUE TO COVID-19. The initial four stitching types are Cross Stitch: June&July, Surface Embroidery: August&September, Canvas: October& November, and Hardanger: February&March. Next summer in June&July we will offer Blackwork. Contact Christine Kampmeyer if you are interested in this program. _________________________
