The Flowers That Bloom In
The Spring, Tra La...........
Begin with a three and a half inch circle surrounding a design painted on
a 5" square of 18-mesh sage green canvas. Dip into a stash of threads
of all colors and fiber contents that cover the table in front of you.
Thread a needle and let your creativity take over voila~!~ Not
"into" canvaswork? That's all right decorative surface stitches
will work just as well. Or you can turn the canvas over and use the
blank side of the canvas. If you need more inspiration, the chapter
library will be right there for you to reference.
We will stitch our hearts out in the morning and participants will be encouraged
to share stitching ideas and lots of stitching stories do come with
one or more to share with the group...........
In the afternoon, after lunch and a brief business meeting our official
annual meeting and election of oficers we will talk about finishing
ideas for the pieces begun in the morning. Members will go home with
a partially stitched piece (some more completely stitched than others
that's OK) and some ideas for how to use them.
Finally, there will be an incentive to finish your piece begun this day
a variety of valuable (really!) prizes will be awarded to the ones voted
the most creative, most colorful, best use of stitches, and the best use
of threads, by the members voting online from all the photos we will post
on the CRVC web site.
There will be a kit fee of $10 for the materials for this program, and lunch
will be at a local restaurant (buy your own).
The most recently received book donations for our Foley/Cornelius Fund Stash
Sale will be available for purchase at this meeting.
