Highlights from our meeting of Tuesday, February 6, 2018

We had a good turnout at our meeting tonight!


Show and Tell


This delightful Halloween piece is a Marilyn Owen design from the 2011 ANG chapter projects book. It was stitched by Suzanne Jones.

Two colorways

Judy Hansen completed this bargello canvas with the beautifully stitched shell quite a while ago, so she doesn't remember the designer's name. Recently a quilter friend of Judy's finished it for her as a gorgeous one-of-a-kind tote.


Margery Williams joined us again tonight to finish guiding us through her Fairy Dust project. We appreciated her careful explanations, illustrations, and instructions for achieving the best results on this lovely design. Margery's tips can easily be applied to other stitched and beaded pieces. Thank you for another enjoyable program, Margery!

Beading around the jewel

April Showers Bring May Flowers was designed and stitched by Helen Imbach. Helen did this original piece for a college-credit class taught by Chottie Alderson. (Helen got an A!)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is the "bead bug," Margery's illustration showing why beading threads should always match the bead or the canvas.
