October 2019


Our Thursday, October 17th meeting at the Ladue Chapel is our second meeting for the 2019-2020 year. At our September meeting, we kicked off our year with our regular meetings -- morning meeting beginning at 9:30 am and the evening meeting at 6:00 pm. We outlined "what's happening" for now and what's planned for later in this year.

Please take a moment to read the newsletter and the meeting notes and catch up with our current events. It will include UFO's, "Hearts for Hospice" and Hydrangea Window Garden." There is much more, so plan to join us on Thursday, October 17th!! We have a lot of fun plans for the year!

Stash Sale!!
Have you heard the great news?

Donate your needlepoint STASH to our local Gateway Chapter ANG because our chapter is having a STASH sale at the National EGA Seminar Merchandise Night on November 1. We need your donated stash because all proceeds from our stash sale will go to our chapter. This will allow us to support our chapter functions and workshops.

PLEASE take time to go through your stash and pull those items you once loved so dearly and now know that maybe you won’t get it stitched and perhaps someone else can enjoy and make as beautiful as you dreamed.
We are accepting canvasses (not partially stitched), threads (skeins and cards only), and books in good condition.

We are collecting NOW and need all items by the October 17th meeting. You can bring your donations to the October meetings at Ladue Chapel, or we will pick-up your donations! Just call, text or email us.

Details regarding dates and location for the EGA Seminar are in the September/October Needlenotes. Plan to attend the EGA Merchandise Night and shop the other vendors. There is no entry fee .

Please contact Hanna, Janice or Mickey if you have any questions.

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.
