Have you heard the great news?
The stash donations from our own members included a lot of fabulous canvases. The canvases were on sale at the EGA Seminar at Merchandise Night on November 1 at the Mariott Hotel. We sold almost all of the canvases to very eager buyers. The remaining canvases were shipped off to an internet resaler.
All of our receipts will be given back to our chapter for educaton efforts.
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 activitiy.
