Denver’s fastest growing needlepoint group, the Colorado Columbine Chapter of the American Needlepoint Guild, will hold its June meeting on the 20th.

A class on how to stitch a strawberry scissors fob is planned.  The design uses beautiful threads in hot pink and bright green: Kreinik Silk Mori and Silk Serica.

Our July, 2016 meeting will be open stitching and finishing a Kurdy Biggs piece many members began in our recent workshop.

Join us for monthly meetings and lots of needlepoint chat and stitching!
