Brenda Hart - Stitch of the Month Project continues in February

Thursday, February 18, 2016
Member Meetings
9:30 am and 6:30 pm
Ladue Chapel

Join us at the morning or the evening member meeting and enhance your repertoire of stitches and creativity by participating in the Brenda Hart project of 12 stitches. You will receive the project book that introduces ...
Stitch of the Month - 2007 by Brenda Hart.

In addition to Brenda Hart's twelve stitches in the project book, you will receive a materials list and instructional hints written by Brenda Hart. Threads, miscellaneous materials, and the 8" by 4" canvas are not supplied. You can pull threads from your own stash or purchase for this project. All of the stitches and instructions are also posted on the ANG web site,, under Stitch of the Month. In February, we will focus on the May and June stitches.

In addition to our stitching project this month, join us to view "Thru the Eye of the Needle", an award-winning 30-minute documentary film. It is about a Holocaust survivor, Esther Nisenthal Krinitz, and who created her art and remembrances nearly 40 years after the war using stitching and embroidery. Her experiences are visible in a series of 36 large fabric collages. Visit the web site to learn more about her extraordinary method of storytelling. This film will be repeated during the mid-day stitch-in and also at the evening member meeting.

Check for other member activities in our newsletter and tri-fold brochure.

Hope to see you often this year!
