Visit from National ANG Teacher Jill Rigoli

National ANG teacher, Jill Rigoli, shared her needlepoint expertise and described the techniques for "'How to Read your Canvas" at our evening meeting of Gateway Chapter of ANG on Thursday, October 8. Jill's program included how to choose threads, stitches, and colors to achieve the finished look for our canvas. She even shared tips about the use of embellishments, and they were educational and enlightening.

Jill Rigoli inspired us to explore the art of needlepoint.
