(Months not listed TBD)
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 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. It also comes in many lovely colors.
Again, we’re pulling from past Chapter Project Book (CPB), 1989 to be specific, and inviting you to put your updated spin on Jean Hilton’s first and only submission for CPB. Esperanza includes 3 new (then) stitches: Jessicas, Wrapped Coils, and Walneto. Materials needed: 8 X 8 – 24 count congress cloth, 1 ball ecru or white (only available colors then) or #12 perle coton, 1 spool Balgar cord (color complementary to the congress cloth). Imagine using different colors for the perle coton and congress cloth. Of course, if you’re stitching on canvas, the size will be larger.
Please email email@example.com and sign up for the free instructions by January 31. At the February program, Margaret Bendig will demonstrate one of the most difficult stitches, Walneto and has graciously re-diagram it on computer (it was hand drawn and difficult to discern), for easier stitching.
Retrospective on Jean Hilton – Part 2 – See how Jean Hilton’s style of stitching has influenced teachers today. Margaret Bendig will demonstrate how she interprets Jean’s techniques when designing her pieces. As an added bonus, we will give out Jean’s books/charts/kits (many are out of print!) for door prizes. Only those who attend are eligible to win!
Public Outreach/Membership drive – Free needlepoint lesson for the public. Members are encouraged to invite their friends/family members to join a beginning stitch session. Free kits will be given to non-members as long as they register ahead of time to allow for shipping. Anyone who joins our guild will receive a needlepoint kit valued approximately $50.

Meetings at 6:30 p.m. to give everyone time to connect, overcome technical hiccups and settle in. The program and chapter business will begin at 7 p.m. (All times are PST) We encourage all of you to bring your latest projects and show them off! And we will be holding raffles for those in attendance. The items will be mailed to the winners.
Program door prizes: For those attending the chapter meetings, we will draw names for door prizes. And if you can’t make it, the programs will be recorded for later view.

Chapter Project Book Challenge
Our pineapple challenge, updating a thirty-three year old chapter book project, was a lot of fun. Below are some of the results. Place your cursor on the image to see the name of the stitcher.
Open Stitching Time on Zoom
There will be four hour zoom periods where you can drop in to stitch. Join us when you can to stitch a bit and chat. You can leave and come back when you want. We want to experiment with different times/days and would appreciate any feedback. The zoom links will be sent to all members in a separate email.
Socials will be on the second and fourth Sundays of each month from 12-4 pm PST.
Tips for Meeting Attendees:
Mute your microphone
To help keep background noise to a minimum, make sure you mute your microphone when you are not speaking
Be mindful of background noise
When your microphone is not muted, avoid activities that could create additional noise, such as shuffling papers or family members using the bathroom (it has happened!)
Position your camera properly
If you choose to use a web camera, be sure it is in a stable position and focused at eye level, if possible. Doing so helps create a more direct sense of engagement with other participants.
Shirley Chin, VP-Programs, is inviting all our members to share/demonstrate a needlepoint related topic. As many of you are dual members, it would be great to see what your chapter has done in the past. Email Shirley at email@example.com or call her at 619-922-6414 to be scheduled.
