Another year has come and gone, and now that it’s February, I’m finally in the habit of writing 2015 whenever I need to date something.
As has been our habit for the last year or two, the February Muchas Manos meeting will be held in conjunction with the regular SDANG meeting, this Tuesday, February 10. The program is a continuation of the scissor fob project that we began in January. It’s been interesting learning to use wire in place of fiber to create these sparkly fobs.
Our new program coordinators, Nancy M. and Michelle, are busy developing plans for the year. We’ll start the year working a Mandala from Chatelaine Designs. Nancy wrote a wonderful introduction to this project. Please plan to join us and learn more about mandalas. An added bonus is Nancy’s promise to demonstrate a simple, yet elegant way to finish your completed stitching that does not require any sewing. For the machine challenged members, that should be a big plus! The Tiny Rose Garden is just the first installment of what I expect to be an exciting year.
Don’t forget to get your projects ready to submit to the San Diego County Fair. Please see Margie’s article for more details and dates.
Keep on stitching,
