Member Project


Our second project began January 2019. Plan to join and use threads from your stash. A $25 stitch guide is available by the designer and in additional to threads, you need an 11" x 11" white 18 mesh momo canvas, 11" x 11" stretcher bars, a #10 beading needle and the usual stitching supplies. See the January / February Needlenotes newsletter for additional details about ordering the stitch guide.

The suggested threads list mostly includes Anchor (DMC) and Kreinik and a few embellishments. Check your stash for threads and let your creativity flow.
