Exciting things are coming to NJNA !!!! Come join us and get in on the fun of needlepoint ! This week, Marge K taught the first of 2 classes – David McCaskill’s Dolphin Topiary . Next month her class will finish up the project and I’m betting that they will all be winners when they are done – take that HGTV “Clipped” !!
Coming up we have a talk by Jacqui Clarkson on “Why You Need Yellow in Your Life!” and then we will have David McCaskill talking about Overdyed Threads. You need to be a member for these wonderful presentations. Our dues are $30 a year and you can contact us here: Contact NJNA | New Jersey Needle Artists (njneedleartists.org)
