For 2016, the NJNA Board decided to offer a Gift Certificate for The Edwardian Needle to one individual selected from everyone who brought a “Show & Tell” to our monthly meetings. The project could be anything finished within the past year – it did not have to be “finished”, just at least finished stitching, although we also love seeing everyone’s finished products as well. We had over 250 Show & Tell items for 2016 – we certainly are a prolific group.
Of course, this was helped by the 6 small projects the chapter did as our programs for the year. Members were encouraged to complete at least 3 to be eligible to receive a small gift at our March 2017 meeting.
I was very excited to find out I was the recipient of the Gift Certificate to The Edwardian Needle for my Honey I Shrunk the Flag project. Pam from The Edwardian was kind enough to provide the gift certificate to the chapter. While many of our members do shop there, it still was a generous donation on her part. Pam is a wonderful supporter of all our needlework guilds. I will definitely be traveling to The Edwardian soon to kit up our 2017 Stitch of the Month project (Stars for the New Millennium) and NJNA’s next chapter program Shell Game.
Thanks again to The Edwardian Needle for their generous donation to our chapter. I will update you on all my purchases!
