Current Programs

Because of the situation with COVID-19 and not having the ability to meet in person, classes for the remainder of 2020 have been moved to 2021. The modified schedule is posted here and updated periodically.

January 2021 Our own Jamie B. will give her presentation on Mountmellick Embroidery.

Febraury 2021 We will listen to a presentation about Elizabethan Embroidery given by Kathy Andrews of The Unbroken Thread. She has a Certificate of Technical Hand Embroidery with Merit from the Royal School of Needlework and her City and Guilds Certificate in Design and Stitched Textiles. Elizabethan embroidery, a surface embroidery techniques, comes from the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, basically 1558-1603.
After the meeting, those of you who are participating in the Blackwork Squares Stitch-a-Long with our chapter, will get started, get your questions answered, talk about the stitches, etc. As of now, there are about 13 of us participating. It’s not too late to purchase the chart from the region. It is $10 and benefits the Jodi Gergens Scholarship fund.

March 2021 In March, at the scheduled Night Group meeting (March 10th at 7 pm), we will have a presentation by Toni Gerdes entitled “Additions to Stitching”. She will discuss embellishments, special threads, and the “Wacky” Copper Lace Technique. This presentation will NOT take place at the Day Group meeting, so please put the date and time on your calendar as you will not want to miss it.

July 2021 We will be stitching 4th of July by Kathy Rees.  This is a canvas project.  Kathy has two 4th of July designs – this is the most recent one. Deb Ogden will walk us thru the stitches.

August/September 2021 A Color Design with Bargello, using Lorena Salt’s “Lava Flow” design.  This is a two meeting class.  The first class will be a discussion of the use of color in design, how to choose colors that work together, and how to choose colors for this piece. The second class will be stitching the piece.  We will offer the kit for Lorena’s turquoise/orange design and are working on a second color set in cranberry, green, and gold.  This class will also help you learn Bargello if you’ve never done it.  Rose Crossan will be the teacher.
