Highlights from our meeting of Tuesday, March 5, 2019

Threats of rain didn't stop us from getting together tonight!

Show and Tell

Attendance prizes

Nancy Steenson has finished stitching the top element and is currently working on the base of the piece.

Carley Linn brought two finished pieces to share. Above is Nancy Cucci's Expressions in Rose Gold, which was presented at our February workshop.

We were happy to welcome back David McCaskill to present part 2 of hisYou're Special table topper design. Tonight David focused on the lettering, which is stitched in overdyed thread. He discussed the properties of many different overdyes, some of which had been brought to the meeting by members. He gave us helpful tips for choosing stitches and planning the traveling direction of the thread. He also discussed ways to manage and manipulate color runs to suit the requirements of the project as well as the stitcher's own preferences.

Carley also completed Heart (Spring), a Pat Thode canvas from Heartstrings Design Gallery.

Thank you, David, for another interesting and informative program!
