Don't Forget Your Name Tag!

Over the last few years we have been lax in enforcing our nametag policy.  We have so many new members that we would like to ask all members to wear a name tag to each meeting.

This is also a chance to have fun creating and displaying your own style ... if you would like some help in designing something please feel free to ask any member with a name tag for help!!

Autumn Garden - Mini Workshop

This year we are doing a collaborative Autumn Garden Sampler.

Each part of the sampler will be introduced each month starting with the framework, which was created by Freda Murfin.

Different members have submitted a design in different styles that falls into our theme of Autumn.

The Monthly Patterns will be available on our Member's Page, use the link at the bottom of the page.

Its great to see how each person interprets the designs in their own unique way ... The colour choices are so different and we even had one pattern reimagined as a cross stitch !!!  I can't wait to see all the finished projects!!!

Do you have a PhD ... Project Half Done !!

This year we once again want stitchers to join our Graduate Studies program and pledge to finish our projects by our May Meeting ... and you earn a certificate of completion, too.

But you can also join our Adoption program ... Where you can bring an item that needs to be finished but don't want to do it anymore ... give it away to another stitcher to finish and keep.

Everyone who joins the Graduate Studies program can have their projects posted on our website and update us all with your progress ... and get support and encouragement to finish your piece
