Continue Our "Year of Fun" in February
Plan to join us Thursday, February 16, for a program lead by Judy Lewis. Being our Program Chair, Judy has experienced some of the up and downs of planning projects. While at our September meeting everyone in attendance was very excited about the scheduled February/ March Bargello project, when it came time for Judy to get organized for it, there was little reception.
Judy understood everyone loved the pattern, however, she also understood how we all have items in our stash that we would like to work on, too. Since Judy was concerned that the project would have taken too much time, she is bringing us a new project that will be as much fun but doesn't seem to be as time consuming. It is a checkerboard project that can be finished as a tray, a pillow, or a lap game board. See page 9 of the February Needlenotes for a picture of the project.
As the end result of this change, your project might become a great item in which you can finish yourself and send as a unique gift for someone or to keep as a family favorite. The stitch guide is only $12. Contact Judy before the meeting and she will email the instructions to you. This will give you a head-start. Please make your check payable to Gateway ANG. Judy hopes you all enjoy this new project.
Come join the fun and also sign-up for our additional remaining activities and stitching projects that have been planned for this year.
Hope to see you at our meetings!!
