The sun is rising later in the morning and setting earlier in the evening; the weather is cooler (we've even had some snowfalls already!); most of the leaves have fallen and there are skeins of Canada geese in the sky getting ready to fly south which means autumn is here. It also means that Bridge City Needlearts Guild General Meetings have started again.
Meetings are held the first Wednesday of the month at Mayfair United Church, 902 - 33rd Street East. Meetings start at 7:30 pm. Guests are always welcome.
There's a pre-meeting stitch-in for members and guests starting at 6:30 pm. Bring a stitching project to work on - it can be anything you want - and stitch and chat before the meeting begins.

This year we will be stitching two small projects. The first is a pin cushion for a Fall project. We'll stitch a small pattern of our choice then there will be a finishing workshop in February where we'll make the pin cushion and attached to a wooden base.
We'll get a second project for the winter/ spring in January - it will be a surprise!

Mini workshops are one-day workshops taught by guild members and take place at a Saturday stitch in held at Mayfair United Church. The mini workshops are usually beginner level and kit costs are kept as low as possible. We have two mini workshops planned:
The first one will be on November 16, 2019 to make a small project bag. We'll use a small stiched piece and add fabric to make a small bag as a way to finish a piece inexpensively and get a useful item.
The second one will be in February 2020 to finish our pin cushions.
Happy stitching everyone!
