Evening Counted Thread SIG

July 11 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Design a new project, pick one you have always admired, or finish up a work-in-progress and dedicate it to yourself instead.

Focus includes many counted techniques such as cross stitch, specialty stitches, hardanger, pulled thread, drawn thread, blackwork, and hemstitching. Features a different program from Daytime Counted Thread.

This group meets monthly on the 2nd Tuesday from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

2017 Programming Note:

Down Memory Lane is our theme for 2017.  Bring your oldest UFO for show-and-tell to any meeting.  We are thoroughly enjoying the stories that accompany these UFOs.  Don’t worry.  To keep it fun and stress-free there is no requirement to commit to finishing or even making any progress!

Everyone who shows an old UFO and tells a good story will have their name put in a drawing for prizes at the end of the year.

We have two group projects going on.

  1. The latest Catherine Theron group project.  Catherine Theron has once again designed a special guild project for 2017 called “Pot O’ Posies.” This wee sampler is stitched on 36-count linen with ANCHOR & DMC flosses; it measures a diminutive 7” wide x 3” high, which includes the hem-stitched border. Stitches used are Four-Sided, Smyrna Cross, Double Cross, Long-Arm, Double Italian, Diamond Eyelet, & Cross-Stitch Over One.
  2. Mary Wigham Wardrobe.  Come and make great progress on the Wardrobe so that you can post on the facebook page.
