Tonight's Zoom crew

Working with wire to form the desired element

Filling in the shape, here with long and short stitches

We were happy to welcome back chapter member Denise Park, who presented an interesting and detailed lesson on stumpwork basics. Those members who assembled the materials list Denise had earlier suggested were able to practice as she demonstrated various techniques or experiment with the processes afterward. There are many possibilities for enhancing our needlework with raised, appliqu├ęd elements!

Thank you, Denise, for sharing your expertise. We learned some really useful techniques!





















































Denise prepared an excellent PowerPoint document which she shared from her computer screen.
