Happy Anniversary to Colorado Columbine Chapter – needlepointing for 40 years!



It’s our RUBY anniversary, can you believe it?  Forty years of needlepoint stitching as a group in Denver, Colorado. Now that’s something to celebrate!  So, by golly, we are!

On April 20, 2015, CCC-ANG hosts its annual dinner, and this year, with some delightful surprises. So, members past and present, please let us know via our Facebook page  or e-mail us at columbineang@gmail.com if you are interested in connecting with needlepointers of today. This will be a great chance to catch up and view our beautiful scrapbook of events since 1975.

After joining our national group, the American Needlepoint Guild, it’s an easy step to joining the Colorado Columbine Chapter of ANG. Dues are just $26 per year and cover free classes, stitch projects, pointers on any level of stitching, access to insider information about new threads, holiday parties, field trips and off-site retreats that are just plain fun!

Our new president, Gloria M., at left, will be teaching an upcoming class in June/July, a design by Libby Sturdy called ‘Mile High Santa!’  April is the final chance to sign up for this, at just $50 for canvas, stitch guide and class instruction. So join us in April to get onboard this opportunity.








The stitching on Mile High Santa is too fun. Here is a finished example of suggested colors and stitches, but anything goes! Use a stash of threads you already own if that’s your preference:
