Highlights from our meeting of Tuesday, October 3, 2017

Members stitch and chat before the meeting begins.

Diane Ackley, chair of the Nina Goerres Fund, revealed the seventh annual Nina design to the membership this evening.

We were delighted to learn that this lovely piece, titled Champagne Toast to Nina, was created by our own Margaret Bendig! Each member present received the 25-page instruction booklet, which will also be sent free to everyone who is a paid member for the fiscal year July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018.

Margaret went through the stitching process, offering many tips and tricks for achieving a beautiful result. Thank you, Margaret, for your artistry, your teaching skills, and your meticulous attention to detail!

For more about this year's design and Margaret's inspiration for creating it, visit the Champagne Toast for Nina page.

Jo Anne Ghazi has finished stitching Background Sampler II, by David McCaskill. The subtle colorway makes this piece particularly elegant.

Margaret brought samples of other colorways suggested in the instruction booklet.

Ann Tips, a distance member from Weatherford, Texas, has done a lovely job stitching Fire and Ice by Toni Gerdes. We're so glad she shared this photo with us!
