Our program coordinators, Nancy M. and Michelle C., have been hard at work designing and planning our upcoming Year of Linen. As you can probably guess from the title, we will be concentrating on linen work, starting with the Martina Rosenberg’s Tiny Rose Garden mandala design this month. 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. To continue with the linen theme, starting in May, Nancy and Michelle will be lead us in creating our own unique band samplers based on our favorite stitches. This promises to bring plenty of surprises, fun, and depending on the stitcher, lots of embellishment opportunities. So break out your stash of linen and threads and join in the fun!
Don’t forget to get your projects ready to submit to the San Diego County Fair. The handbooks are now available on the fair website. And in case you need some dedicated stitching time to finish that fair project, we have an Open Stitching schedule for April 11 with our sister chapter, SDANG.
Keep on stitching, Judy
