Lotsa yummy stuff ....

and I'm talking food here.  We had a great picnic/dinner meeting on June 21st.  The food was absolutely yummy.  The garage sale was fun.  And everyone had a good time.

Our next meeting will be on July 19th at 7 pm.  The project for the night will be finishing techniques for the library book marks.  Be sure to bring thread, needle and either a finished bookmark (or more) or a scrap piece of aida/evenweave with which to practice.  Several techniques will be taught.  We're looking for fast and easy finishing techniques so if you have a suggestion, be sure to mention it.

See you in July ......

Our Booth at the New Castle Arts Festival

Our Chapter participated in the first annual New Castle Arts Festival held on May 30th in beautiful downtown New Castle, Pennsylvania.  The weather was sunny, dry and warm with a nice breeze -- perfect for the event. 

Members brought some of their favorite pieces to display.  There were samples of  gold work, cross stitch, canvas work, hardanger, and other techniques for the festival attendees to view. 

 A BIG "Thank You!" to DMC for generously donating little beginner cross stitch kits for us to hand out and teach anyone interested in learning.

Enjoy the pics and thanks for stopping by ......
