Highlights from our meeting of Tuesday, November 5, 2019

This charming piece is Raymond Crawford's Halloween Pumpkin Mini-Boot, stitched by Jo Anne Ghazi.

David McCaskill brought his newest treetopper design to share. David says this creation was inspired by the glass ornament on the top of his grandmother's Christmas tree.

Marilu prepares for her presentation.

Attendance prizes tonight were claimed by Jo Anne, C. J., Belle, and Suzanne.

Tonight Marilu Morency presented a hands-on program on thread painting, featuring the burden stitch and needle-weaving techniques. Marilu put together some nice kits which were available for purchase at a nominal fee. The kits contained ground fabric, threads, templates, and instructions, along with a frame and envelope so that the finished stitched piece could be mounted as a greeting card. Marilu gave individual assistance to everyone who needed her help, and we all had fun learning and practicing some new things!

Here are two examples of Marilu's thread-painting designs.

Carol Algie Higginbotham designed Garden of Delight, and Pat Correz stitched it in her own colorway. This design is available to EGA members whose chapters are in the Pacific Southwestern Region.

Linda Kammerer stitched Piper Pumpkin by Laurie Walden. This was one of the last pieces finished by our late friend Laurie McLellan.
