08.11.2012 August Meeting and a Needle Book Project
Our next meeting is one week away on Saturday, August, 18th at 1:15 p.m. at the Chandler Police Station (Map: http://goo.gl/maps/YHkJ8)
We invite you to join us for some relaxed sewing time together. We have put together a fun hand-stitched Needle Book project to work on together. Although if hand sewing is not your cup of tea or you have other sewing projects you would prefer to work on than feel free to bring those projects along, sewing machine and all. There is plenty of tables and room to work on all sized projects. The meeting will begin at 1:15 p.m. and we have reserved the room until 5 p.m. so you are welcome to come and go as you please, there will also be snacks provided.
Needle Book Project
For those of you interested in making the Needle Book, Alyssa has created a needle book tutorial for all levels, whether you have never worked on hand stitching and embroidery or you are a seasoned pro. These little needle books make great gifts, in fact the one pictured above is a gift for a young girl (hence the super bright girly colors :) We will begin working on the Needle Books at 1:30 p.m. and since everyone stitches at a different pace we may or may not finish in one sitting, but you will have a printed tutorial to take home with you to finish.
