Bargello Needlecase

Bargello Needlecase
  • January 26, 2022

The Bargello Needlecase is a fun, fast project – no laying of threads required as the project is stitched in pearl cotton.

The price of $10 includes canvas, instructions, and felt for the interior of the case. Members will provide their own pearl cotton. Shipping is $10, but local members will be able to pick up their canvases at the meeting.


Baroque

Laurie’s Heart
  • February 2022

Margaret Bendig is back with Baroque! Baroque is a small counted canvas design of woven and composite stitches with a classic feel.  Two colors of silk along with metallic ribbon and fine metallic thread join to form this piece.  Members will work with multiple needles to create the woven border composed of 3 different configurations of a woven pattern.  The original is stitched with red and white silk with gold threads.  Buy your own silk thread in the color of your choosing!  Baroque may be framed or used as a small box top.  The design is 3 1/4 inch square. 

Cost $25.  Includes chart and canvas. Shipping $10.


Spring Fling

Flower Banner
  • March 23, 2022

Welcome Spring with Butterfly or Flower banners designed by Nancy Cucci. Nancy will also teach the program at our March meeting. You may choose to stitch one or both of the banners, but will need to pay for each banner you plan to stitch.

The price for one banner is $18 and includes marked canvas and a stitch guide. Get both for $30. Shipping is $12, but local members will be able to pick up their canvases at the meeting.

Stitchers will provide their own threads – there are no beads in the Butterfly Banner and only 68 beads in the Flower Banner (or replace with French Knots?). Many of the threads in the original banners are no longer available – now is the time to check your stash or make new, innovative choices for thread substitutions. Below you will find a “formula” to help you in your choices.
