2015 Stitch-in-Public Day Recap

On Saturday, February 21st, a group of hearty chapter members and several guests participated in our annual Stitch-in-Public Day, this year held at the Lake County Library in Merrillville, Indiana.

We had lovely projects from our members
being displayed all month at the library.

Here are some close-ups to better see the stitching...

Inside the room we used,
there was a table with NANI literature
and some precious small projects stitched by members.

We also had a table with embroidery books
for our guests' perusal.

Here are some of our participants,
happily stitching on their latest projects
in our well-lit space.

The weather cooperated
(it didn't snow)
and a good time was had by all!

So Long, Karen

Last month the Needle Artisans of Northwest Indiana lost one of its own.  Karen was a charter member of our EGA chapter, and a very accomplished needlewoman.  She was also very skilled at putting the finishing touches on a stitched piece.  One of our members described it as taking a scrap of linen and turning it into a piece of art.  Here are just a few of Karen's finishes:


Karen, you will be missed.
