2012 Stitchers Challenge and Pin Making

Date: 1/8/2012
Time: 1:30-4:00
Type: Meeting
Location: Wheaton Community Center
Teacher: LMSG- Karyn Pechinski

Let’s start off the year right with the Stitcher’s Challenge!  Bring in your projects that you contracted to finish (completed or not!) from 2011 for a show and tell.

Go through your stash of unfinished projects and find one to commit (Oh, that dreaded 6 letter word!) to completing in 2012.  We’ll go over the projects that we want to complete in 2012 and complete our “contracts”.  We’ll keep track of our progress throughout the year and encourage each other to finish our UFO’s!

At this meeting, we will also be making custom pins to use in any of our pincushions (hint: our March program) or other projects that you want to individualize.  Sign up for our March Program will be due.

Highlights

We had a great first meeting of the new year. Gift Certificates for completed Stitcher Challenge projects from 2011 were awarded and new commitments for 2012 were made. Eye candy brought in by members for show & tell included beautiful petit point on silk guaze purchased on a European trip and The 12 days of Christmas ornament set which is on it’s way to completion. We made beaded pins to adorn future projects. Thanks everyone for a fun afternoon!
