2010 - 2011 Programs

October will feature Maili of Soutache. She will give a brief overview of the latest trends in ribbon accessories. In her workshop, we will create a pin wheel ribbon ornament.  Cost is $15.00.


For November's meeting, we will be repeating  last year's garage sale with GS#2. Start going through your baskets and drawers, nooks and crannies for those projects that have been tucked away ... and forgotten.


A Journey into Beading for Needlepoint will be demonstrated following the January business meeting. Kit cost is $12.00.


February's meeting features textile and fiber artist, Sandra Adams, will  talk about her relationship with art and The Nature of Things. She will then offer a demonstration of how she creates her unique pieces.


In March, Libby Sturdy will talk about Size versus Shape. For many of us, this is one of the most challenging aspects of needlepoint. Kit cost is $15.00.


A return visit from guest lecturer Nancy Sturgeon will highlight April's meeting. Nancy  will offer a brief overview of punch needlework. For the workshop, you may choose between a 4" by 4" 'snowman' or 'pumpkin'. Project cost is $40.00 (including three needles).


At the May luncheon, it was voted to move the traditional May field trip/luncheon to December. We will be going to the Merchandise Mart to view/shop at their One of a Kind expo. Information on date and time will be made available at the September meeting.


All sign up sheets and information regarding the programs/projects will be presented at September's meeting. This is a great opportunity for you to sign up for the various programs.


We look forward to seeing all of you in September. Please feel free to contact us with any questions. Hopefully, we can provide the answers!!
