May Happenings

Monday, May 21, 2012 at 7:00 PM
at Third UP Church

Dinner is 5:30 p.m. at Pizza Joe's in Croton. 

The project is a stumpwork dragonfly taught by Marcy. Cost is $5.00 for threads, beads and wire.
You need to supply (in addition to your regular stitching stuff):

-- beading needle (for attaching beads)
-- size 14 or 16 tapestry needle (this large blunted needle will be used to sink the wires of the wings)
-- a 4 inch embroidery hoop
-- magnification of some kind, with light would be very helpful

-- the Lily Pond piece if you are stitching the dragonfly onto it (Sue is providing a plain piece of congress cloth if you don't)

We are not meeting at Sue's the rest of May for the Monday night stitch-ins. 

I will have a sign-up sheet for the Arts Festival, which is May 26 - 27, at Cascade Park.   Even if you can only give us a few hours, that would be a help.   The hours are from 11 AM to 9 PM both days. We will be inside, so no weather worries like when we were downtown.   If you have something you would like us to display, please bring it to the May meeting.   We only have one 6 foot table reserved, so we don't need to overwhelm but we do need the eyes to watch our stuff. If you are planning to join us, remember to bring something to stitch-in-public.
