Our regular meetings are done until September so now it's time to kick back, relax and stitch.
Our Summer Challenge this year is a canvas piece with lots of different stitches that will definitely challenge us. Members can choose their own fabric and threads so each finished piece will be unique. It's always amazing to see the finished pieces. Finished pieces will be shown at the September meeting and there will be a draw for a prize.
How many UFO's (UnFinished Objects) do you have? Each summer we choose one UFO from the projects we have in progress and make a commitment to finish it by the September meeting. Members bring their completed UFO to the September meeting and their names are entered in a draw for a prize.
We don't have our Wednesday General Meetings in July and August but that doesn't mean we don't get together to stitch. Our Saturday Stitch-ins at Sobey's continue throughout the summer. We meet in the Community Room at the Sobey's in Stonebridge the first Saturday of the month from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Come for an hour, come for the day, everyone is welcome. If you want to make some progress on a project or need help this is the place to be. Stitch-in dates are:
- July 6
- July 20
- August 3
- August 17
- September 7
We're also now stitching on Thursdays from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm in the Community Room at the Sobey's on the corner of 8th Street and Cumberland Avenue. These stitch-ins will continue throughout the Summer and into the Fall. Everyone is welcome.
Hope to see you there.
The regular monthly meetings will start up again on September 4, 2019 at Mayfair United Church, 902 - 33rd Street West. The meeting starts at 7:30 pm, but 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.
Happy Summer Stitching Everyone!
