Evening Counted Thread SIG—No meeting Aug. 8

August 8, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

No meeting this month because of Retreat!

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.

Future 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.

“Mary Wigham 1790 Wardrobe” from Just A Thought

Judy Odell has graciously offered to let us purchase this beautiful out-of-print pattern. Each individual will get an email from Judy Odell with the pdf file attached. One overdyed thread is used for the whole project. The cost for the file is $20 and includes the pattern, finishing templates and instructions. We plan on working on this the first half of 2017. View the piece at Just A Thought.

Judy has offered to set up a Facebook group to answer questions and help us. It will be for stitchers working on the wardrobe, NGM members and some of  Judy’s Facebook friends. Please get information on signing up for this piece at any NGM meeting before the October 31 deadline.
