    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 a Christmas Stitch-a-long as a group or any individual sampler you would like at Sampler Sleuths! During COVID you need to reserve s socially-distanced space by calling Jineen.


    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.

    Welcoming Stitchers Program THIS PROGRAM IS ON HOLD DUE TO COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS. 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. 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.
