Upcoming Programs

Expanding our needlepoint skills

The programs will rotate mostly between 2 projects: 2023 Stitch of the Month, Crescent Journey and Layers of Leaves published by Needlepoint Now (private publication). This latter project requires the purchase of the magazine issues – a subscription (which many of you may already have) is more cost-effective than purchasing individually. For more information, please visit Layers of Leaves. You can start these projects at any time. The project is spread over 6 issues of the magazine in 2023.

The 2023 “Stitch of the Month”, Crescent Journey is released monthly on the ANG website and it’s free to all members. *

Free Supplies for 2023 Programs

For chapter members, we’re encouraging you to create a personal stitch reference binder, for both projects. The chapter is providing blank business cards and plastic business card holders to members! You will receive enough to complete 80 stitch samples. They will be available at in-person meetings or can be mailed (free of charge). Additionally, there is blank canvas available for your stitch samples at in-person meetings. Email programs@sdang.org to request them. **

November – TBD

December 9 – Holiday Party

Location: 5490 Caminito Herminia, La Jolla
Time: 11:30 a.m. – 2 p.m.

There will be a special optional gift exchange. If you would like to participate, bring a wrapped item from your stash. It can be a painted canvas, counted canvas kit, or a tool, anything Needlepoint related. BUT it must be unused and unstitched! If you are a new stitcher without a stash, let us know at infor@sdang.org and those of us with a larger stash will provide one for you!

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.

Michelle Crownhart and Pamela Harding, VP-Programs, are 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/call either Michelle Crownhart – at 619-246-7681 or Pamela Harding – at 206-406-5642 or email them at programs@sdang.org to be scheduled.
