What programs would you like to see in the future? Is there a stitch, a technique, a subject or a speaker you would like to have included in a program? Give your suggestions to Lee or Barbara.




Surface Embroidery on wool felt to create pincushion or needle case,. Wool felt is the best for keeping our needles and pins rust-free.. Bring a chenille needle and practice your surface embroidery stitches in pearl cotton. A variety of patterns will be shown to encourage individual adaptations. NeedleArts magazine published an article on this type of project in the Sept 2014 issue. Kits will be available but please bring both sharp and tapestry needles. You may also bring scraps of wool felt, fleece, interesting fabric, and threads, fibers, and beads in colors of your choice.!

We will be celebrating UFOs (UnFinished Objects). Bring your most dreaded, most challenging or the oldest UnFinished Object in your stash. WIPs (Works in Progress) that need some encouragement are also welcome.

                                               Aline Lauzon - 2nd Vice President

You are invited to bring along your current stitching project and join us. There is often a small project being led by a chapter member to help us learn a new technique. There is always sharing of the latest magazines and books and updates on current guild activities. Satellite groups are a great way for members who cannot make day meetings to connect with other chapter members. We have two satellite groups.
