Open Stitching – Although COVID-19 has prevented face-to-face gatherings, we’ve created stitching meetings via Zoom. They are scheduled for 2nd and 4th Sundays from 12 – 4 p.m. PST. And for night owls, we’ve scheduled “Pajama Party Stitching” from 10 – 12 midnight. Please check “My Calendar” for the dates and times.
PLEASE NOTE: January only, the program is moved up one hour. The chapter program will begin at 6 p.m. PST.
Annette Pappe of The Needleworks of Austin, Texas is presenting a special January 2021 tour of her needlepoint shop to help our chapter kick off the new year! She is also the new distributor for Burmilana, a Wool Blend. It is thicker thread, which is a blend of 50% natural wool and 50% acrylic which comes in many lovely colors. A kit is available for you to sample this thread. Please click here for more program, kit and payment details.
We invite you to put your updated spin on Jean Hilton’s Esperanza, which includes three of her signature stitches: Jessicas, Wrapped Coils, and Walneto. Margaret Bendig will demonstrate the Walneto stitch and rediagram it on computer for easier stitching. Please click here to go to our Programs page for more information.
