Celestial Stitchers Chapter - News

Mt. Olivet Lutheran Church, corner of Spring and Prospect Streets in Shrewsbury. Second Thursday of the month (unless otherwise noted) 6:30-9:30 p.m.

Many chapter members successfully completed Winter Stars by Laura Perrin, that was taught by CSC member Betty Berry. This project was so well received that Betty has agreed to teach another canvas project called Stepping Stones, a Sular Design for Rainbow Gallery. Betty is currently working on samples and creating a chart for the design.

At our December meeting we had a holiday cookie exchange that was fun and enabled each of us to go home with a variety of delicious cookies.

Member Pat Smith taught us how to make a project bag that is featured in a YouTube video by Vonna Pfeiffer, a.k.a. the Twisted Stitcher.

The results of a recent survey completed by members indicated that they are interested in learning the techniques of trapunto, hardanger, black work, stump work, beaded- rope necklaces/bracelets, and finishing. More group projects utilizing EGA instructions, such as a 15-sided biscornu, were also requested. Other suggestions included having a public stitch-in, doing an annual display at the Shrewsbury Public Library, and beginning another community outreach project such as the bookmarks for children that was done in the past.
