Report – October 2016

Norfolk’s Own is starting the year off with some fundraising. We’ll hold an auction where each member brings two wrapped gifts that will be on the block, one that’s “nice” and one that’s funny. We’ll also be devoting our first October meeting to stitching cards to sell at our local archives.

Our program this year will start with “Pieces of Eight” a canvas work sampler of sorts, designed by Gayle Bicknell. This pattern is available through Needlepoint Now magazine. There are lots of beautiful examples on the Caron website.

There are some members interested in a hardanger angel and we’ll see if there is time to work on that before Christmas. Work on last year’s huswif is ongoing; there is a lot of stitching on that one!

Many members continue to meet on Mondays for informal stitch-ins. Lots of chatting and help or opinions if you need either of those.

In December, we’ll have our annual Christmas dinner out to celebrate the season with our stitching friends.
