Pilot Class by Michele Roberts
at The Needlepoint Clubhouse

Sunday, April 29, 2018


Many of you may already know Michele Roberts, an ANG Senior Master Teacher who will be teaching at the 2018 ANG Seminar in Washington DC in August. Michele has taught and lectured at many seminars, including ANG, EGA, NAN, Callaway Gardens, National Altar Guild, and art museums; conducted Correspondence Courses, CyberWorkshops, Workshops by Mail; written books and articles; and won awards in the US and the UK. She is also an EGA Graduate Teacher, a Fiber Forum juried member, received the Royal School of Needlework Certification with Distinction, and holds a Cities and Guilds Certification in Stumpwork and she received the NAN Lifetime Achievement Award in 2010. Michele specializes in historical research, ecclesiastical designs, stumpwork, and goldwork.

With so many marvelous accomplishments, we are most appreciative and grateful for this opportunity to host a remarkable teacher such as Michele, and “pilot” one of her seminar classes. (Pilot definition: test before introducing more widely)

In this class, we will help Michele identify any necessary changes or enhancements before she teaches it at Seminar 2018 in Washington D.C. Michele is presenting the "Patriotic Treetop Star in Five Easy Pieces" and the proficiency level for this class is designated as “All”. The design is a line-drawing on #18 white interlock canvas and is 8” x 8 1/2”. Cost for the Pilot class is $92.00.

Please refer to the March-April newsletter for additional details.

Joan Thomasson's
Patterns and Posies

Member Project for the Year


Our 2017-2018 program began in September with the first installment of Joan Thomasson’s Patterns and Posies. Ms. Thomasson has graciously given us permission to teach to our chapter these beautiful patterns, featuring many interesting stitches and colorful fibers. The project has been separated into small segments and several of our own members are taking the teaching lead each month. If the stitcher keeps up with the project, there are small incentive items distributed each month for finishing that specific section.

Many thanks to our leaders, some of them who are also board officers;
Eileen Chalk - Programs, Kathy Scioneaux - Membership, Donna Beaman - Public Relations, Ellen Ippolito - Social/Sunshine, and Julie Cook and Linda Lesh, members.

Please read the March-April Needlenotes newsletter for additional details.
