Diane, Rosie and Sue C. spent an afternoon stitching together and Rosie said how much she would like to do this year’s SOTM designed by Debbie Stiehler, who taught Asian Collage at the Philadelphia ANG Seminar. We all looked at the SOTM on the ANG website and decided that it would be fun to do.
Since the programs for this year have already been established for NJNA’s regular meetings, we decided to do this SOTM as a sub-group outside of the regular meetings. This is what we came up with:
- Meet monthly — either the first Saturday of the month or the first Wednesday of the month starting at 11:00 AM
- Bring your own lunch and take turns making dessert
- Stitch from 11 to 12:30, eat lunch, then stitch until 4:30-5:00.
We’ll meet on Saturday if some who work during the week want to join our group – otherwise, we’ll do Wednesday.
The stitching on that day would be the SOTM, but no one needs to be up to date and ready to start the new lesson when they arrive! You won’t be able to work ahead since we will have to wait until the new month for the next stitches to be revealed! Sue and Rosie offered their homes (both in Mendham) for the stitching meeting.
If you look here http://www.needlepoint.org/StitchOfTheMonth/2013/feb.php, you can see what the first lesson looks like. The previous lesson http://www.needlepoint.org/StitchOfTheMonth/2013/jan.php shows the supplies needed. Read down and Debbie explains how you can go about selecting your own colorway. If you are a member of the ANG Yahoo list, you can go to the photo section to the SOTM photo album for 2013 to see the start of this design in blue.
Interested? Contact Rosie or Sue C. or Diane! Sounds like fun, doesn’t it?
