Contoocook Needlework Gallery and Tricia Wilson Nguyen from Redefined,
Inc. will lead a group of stitchers and their daughter, son,
grandchild or special buddy in the pleasures of thread and needle on
April 8 from 10:00 until 12:00!
Using Tokens and Trifles sewing cards (tokensandtrifles.com), each
pair will choose to stitch a joint project at their skill level. A
selection of projects to choose from will be available. The sewing
cards are 20-count perforated paper with a decorative edge which can
be left blank or stitched. For our youngest friends, we will show
them how to decorate a blank card with their own drawing and then
teach them the basics of stitching in the decorative edge. For those
a little more advanced, we will use the perforated cards to teach
cross-stitch using a series of techniques which simplify the learning
process. To excite the experienced stitchers who accompany our newer
friends, we will explore companion designs to the non-stitchers pieces
and discuss creative ways that Tokens and Trifles can be used. About
100 stitched pieces will be brought as examples of stitchbooking,
placecards, greeting cards, needlebooks, bookmarks, etc.
$50 per pair ($15 each additional person) includes light refreshments.
50% deposit and reservations due by April 1. Please call 746-2391
for reservations and/or more information.
