It’s Memorial Day Weekend and with the weather we are having here in NJ it’s perfect for lots of stitching time !! The only ones enjoying this weather are the ducks ! Let’s remember all the brave military people that have given their lives for our country.
One of our members is doing something very interesting – Brenda is doing a needlepoint cruise with Sandy Arthur of Duo Designs called Tulip Time Along The Rhine in April 2022. Sandy Arthur has also created an exclusive kit that you can purchase to give you the entire experience. The kit is lovely and the pictures make you want to jump in Brenda’s suitcase though she has already lined up what she is wearing via an app so it might be a tight squeeze !Sandy’s Stitching (sandyarthur.blogspot.com)
Our line up of programs has changed and if you are a member, we are now going to have David McCaskill as a guest speaker. He will be doing a 90 minutes presentation on Overdyed Threads in August. Come join the fun – Contact NJNA | New Jersey Needle Artists (njneedleartists.org)
