Colorado Columbine celebrates 40 years of needlepoint stitching

Six past presidents graced the annual dinner and kickoff to the 40th anniversary celebration for Colorado Columbine Chapter of the American Needlepoint Guild!  Wearing ruby red, the color symbolizing a 40th anniversary, the past presidents were called to the podium one by one to accept beautiful long-stemmed red roses from the president-elect, Gloria M., at far right in the photo above. The past presidents are, from left to right, Caela T., 1981-82; Barbara C., 1990; Maxine F., 1984-86 and 2001-03; Cynthia L., 2003-04; Vicki M., 2010-12; Lea K., 2013-15.

Stitchers past and present from all over the Denver metro area attended the annual dinner and installation of new officers. It was fun to see members from past years and do a bit of catching up. A sea of red color greeted all who arrived for the celebration. New members were added and visitors were warmly welcomed.

A cake graced the banquet table arranged by Janet C. and Barb G.:
