Honey, it’s time for spring needlepoint!

 

Members of Colorado Columbine Chapter, ANG, will meet in March, 2019, to begin a class based on a popular ANG stitch guide called, ‘Honey I Shrunk the Heart!’   Sue E. has adapted the heart to a strawberry shape, and loaded the beautiful design yummy colors and beads.  It is one of the classes offered by the group that encourages use of threads already owned, and patterns offered by the American Needlepoint Guild.

Upcoming months will have an annual dinner and installation of new officers; a very popular class on How to Tackle a Painted Canvas; and a back-by-popular demand session on how to use ribbons on needlepoint canvas!

Annual dues could be free for Colorado Columbine Chapter needlepoint guild members!


Hello members of the Colorado Columbine Chapter!

October is our membership renewal month.. and we have exciting news!

Need a reason to join?

* Our chapter offers a wonderful selection of various programs each month.

* We belong to the Colorado Consortium and have the opportunity to take classes taught by national instructors in a small classroom environment.

* We also offer members the chance to participate in the Cheyenne Mountain Stitch Retreat, with classes taught by national instructors.

* Because we are lucky enough to live in a state where several national instructors live, we encourage members to take ‘pilot’ classes when they are offered by instructors looking for feedback on a piece before teaching it at seminar.  It is a great way to take a class for a reduced price before its taught nationally!

Now for the exciting news…

You have a chance to receive a year’s membership dues for FREE if you bring a new member who signs up and pays their dues.

Please make check payable to “CCC ANG” — $26 due in October.

New board & new needlepoint projects for Denver’s top chapter of American Needlepoint Guild

Denver stitchers will induct new Colorado Columbine Chapter board members on April 16 to kick off a new phase of needlepoint offerings! Members are always treated to a catered dinner as they welcome a new slate of officers.

The May meeting will be a Stash Sale to allow members to part with old favorites and go home with ‘new’ goodies!  Bring nearly new projects, either canvas or threads or both, to allow others to bid on and take home. Voila! Empty shelves for incoming…

In June, we put on our three-cornered hats and begin to stitch up a Painted Pony Patriotic Dress Form to jazz up our Fourth of July displays!  Each stitcher is encouraged to try new threads, stitches and beads to expand stitching horizons:
