October is a favorite needlepoint stitching month

October stitching is fun! October stitching is fun!

The weather is cooler, the garden projects have slowed, most needlepoint stitching groups are back in full swing after a summer hiatus.

In October, the board of Colorado Columbine Chapter of American Needlepoint Guild continues to consider a proposal to merge our chapter with another local needlepoint chapter.  It is vital that the membership at large makes its wishes known to the members of the board.  Feel free to call any member of the board to relay your thoughts on this important consideration, particularly if you were not present at the September general meeting. Click here to read the minutes:  General Meeting minutes of September 2014

It is also important to attend the next general meeting scheduled for Monday, October 20 at the Great Hall of Bethany Lutheran Church at 6:50 p.m.  It is much easier to communicate when members can meet face to face and discuss issues facing the group.

Our program in October will be the finishing process to create the Little Friendship Gift Boxes that we started in September.

So, lots on the agenda and lots of stitching to do, so plan to be on hand!

Needlepoint a pretty little ‘Friendship Gift Box’ in September

If you are looking for a delightful gift for a special person, why not make a beautiful little box in that person’s favorite colors?

Our September program will be all about DebBee’s ‘Friendship Gift Boxes,’ by designer Debbie Rowley.  And they are little, which to us, means quick to stitch: “approx 2″ x 2″ x 2″ / use 24-count Congress Cloth Stark White – 2 10″ x 10″ pieces / instructions include 3 colorways.” Or, stitch on 18-count canvas if you prefer. Sign up now to receive a list of all the supplies. This could be a great stash buster!

Gaze at these and sign up by THIS FRIDAY, September 5, by emailing or calling Barb Golubiewski!

We will learn how to finish the box in October. If you have any questions, please contact Barb G.
