Here we are, starting a new year!! Depending on how you approach the new year, whether it is with a goal, a resolution, a change in activities for your health, or just a plan to stitch more, make it your own plan!
Join us at our next meeting, Thursday, January 16 at the Ladue Chapel. It will be our first meeting for the 2020 year. Join us at one of our regular meetings -- morning meeting at 9:30 am or evening meeting at 6:00 pm.
Also, take a moment to read the newsletter and the meeting notes and catch up with our current events; UFO's, "Hearts for Hospice" and "Hydrangea Window Garden." We have a lot of fun planned for the new year!

Hydrangea Window Garden
Member Project by Terry Dryden
Hydrangea Window Garden is a project from the designer/teacher Terry Dryden. Many of us may remember the class Harlequin Hearts that Terry taught in St. Louis several years ago. Terry is a talented teacher who spotlights variegated threads and illustrates how to use the color changes to enhance shading. This is a fun piece that combines some new elements.
This project is our year-long member project. We are working through the stitch guide and thread kit created by Terry Dryden. Each month we will be working on a specific section and will receive incentives at each point of completion. Check with the Programs Chairman if you want to join this activity.
