Needlepoint always means a happy holiday for Denver stitchers

Happy holidays to members of Colorado Columbine Chapter of the American Needlepoint Guild!

As we take a break from regular meetings in December to enjoy our families, friends and stitching time at home, we are thankful for all the year’s blessings.  Our members are especially pleased to have such an absorbing, soothing, meditative activity as needlepoint to enjoy.  Come join us in January when meetings resume, and see what we’ve got coming up in 2018:



On January 19, 2018, we will be stitching a Heidi Stanley piece, a monogram which will be individualized with a special plaid chosen by each stitcher.  The class is closed, but it will be fun to see what develops!


On February 20, a charming paper scissors case will be our focus, all beaded and stitched on perforated paper.  This will make a beautiful piece to display in our stitching rooms!


In March, a stunning Ruth Schmuff piece called Gilded Pears will be taught by Julie, its rich colors on a dark background that is going to be fun.


Then in June, just in time for the Fourth of July, we will be stitching a perky Painted Pony Patriotic Dress Form just for fun!  See you there.


As always, many thanks to our wonderful team of program directors, Madonna and Julie:
