Laurie’s Heart

Laurie’s Heart
  • September 2021
  • November 2021

“Laurie’s Heart” is designed and taught by Nancy Cucci (in honor of former member, Laurie McCellan). The heart is stitched on 9″ x 9″ canvas in pink or blue threads, with iridescent beads and a central crystal. The cost is $50 for instructions, canvas, and beads. Shipping is $12, but we hope to be meeting in person for the September meeting where local members will be able to pick up their pieces in person.

The deadline for signing up was August 1.

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.


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 of $18 includes marked canvas and a stitch guide. 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.
