The NANI Board meeting planned for today Saturday, Feb 23rd, has been cancelled. Hope to see everyone at the General meeting on Tuesday, March 5th, at 7 p.m. at the Social Center of Community Park, our regular meeting location. Remember to bring fabric and threads from your stash for a Name Tag and Bookmark Workshop. Charts will be provided, and some supplies from the NANI stash will be available. Cost is $2 which you can bring that night to cover photocopy expenses. See you then!

Broken Needle Festival

Tomorrow, February 8, is the day to pay homage to your needles and gently put your worn and broken pins and needles to rest. I've noticed it's becoming a tradition here to make a needlebook or pincushion to celebrate the event.  (a lot less messy than the traditional tofu)

You will find a sweet homage to the needle here.  And information on the traditional festival in Japan here.

Thanks to Susan at Threaded Needle for the links. She's having a contest for one of her kits--just post a photo of your favorite resting place for your needles on the Sashiko Stitchers Facebook page (your needlework does not have to be sashiko).
