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 May-June Needlenotes newsletter for additional details.

Come join the fun and stitch with us!!

Pilot Class by Michele Roberts
at The Needlepoint Clubhouse


On Sunday, April 29, 14 chapter members had the pleasure of meeting one of our long-distance members, Michele Roberts. Michele lived in St. Louis before moving to the Houston, Texas, area and still has family here. Michele chose our chapter to pilot one of the classes she will be teaching at the upcoming ANG National Seminar in Washington, D.C. The subject of the class was a beautiful patriotic star, stitched on five separate pieces of canvas. Michele instructed us on the stitching, assembling, finishing and embellishment of the beautiful star. She surprised the class by also teaching us how to finish a round ornament and embellish it with twisted cord and beads. We all made progress in completing the ornament, which was made of a piece of printed cotton fabric. A few stitchers even left with a totally finished ornament due to their “flying fingers”.

We thank Michele for sharing her expertise with us and hope to see here in the near future, since besides the two 2018 seminars that some of our members may be attending, she will also be teaching at the 2019 EGA National Seminar here in St. Louis.

Thanks also go to ANG member Hanna Evens, who opened her home to Michele while she was teaching both classes. We would also like to thank Megan Holmes, owner of The Needlepoint Clubhouse for letting us have class in her store.

Please refer to the May-June newsletter for additional details.
