We are going to start the new year off right with a complimentary program presented by Catherine Jordan on Sunday, January 9th via Zoom. The meeting room will open at 12:30 pm CST for those who want to say hello and Catherine’s presentation will begin at 1:00pm CST lasting approximately an hour with time for questions and answers. The program is as follows:
“This PowerPoint program is an exploration into the many ways to showcase needlework to make
beautiful covers for books. You will see Catherine’s collection of accordion folded booklets, linen
covered journals, and designs archivally attached to paper maché book boxes.” There will be plenty of time for questions and answers.
Zoom invite and handouts will be emailed in early January


2022 February Meeting Valentine Exchange & Needlework Book Cover

Date: Sunday, February 13, 2022
Time: 1:00 p. m. to 3:30 p.m.
Location: Wheaton Community Center

Program: We will have our Valentine Exchange and have fun creating a needlework book cover as demonstrated in January’s Catherine Jordan presentation.

Marilyn and Mary Ann have prepared a kit to make the “Needlework Book Cover” as presented by Catherine Jordan via Zoom at the January Meeting.  In the kit is a little 2 x 2” paper book, 32 count linen (from Carol’s stash) along with the pattern and directions for stitching the four-sided stitch to bind the edges.  Please bring a tapestry needle and we strongly recommend a magnifier.  We will be stitching neutral colored tread on a neutral-colored linen so along with good light, the magnifier will help.  Once you catch on to the four-sided stitch, the project is fast and easy.

Join us for lunch at 12:00pm before the meeting:
