Report – October 2016

The Presentation for EAC Seminar 2017 “Rock, Needle, Scissors” was shown at the September meeting for both day and evening groups. An egg cozy kit presented by Victoria Moorshead was given to the day group. Members were encouraged to stitch a piece of embroidery with a cross stitch border in preparation for the ornament finishing technique to be taught by Alice Fiander and Ietje Jackovich at the October day meeting. The evening group made a rick rack needle minder in September and will make a sampler of how to set up the threads to do pulled thread at the October meeting.

In November the day group will make an embroidered angel with sequin ribbon for the skirt and the evening group will make a Christmas decoration with shisha mirrors.
On Saturday, September 24th, a ‘Stitch in PUBlic’ day was organized by member Victoria Moorshead at the Duke of York Pub.

Weekend getaways have been organized for November at Crieff Hills Conference Centre and Kempenfelt Conference Centre. A Saturday Stitch day has also been organized for November.

On Saturday, November 26th, Lorene Salt will teach a canvas workshop, featuring a new piece.
