Monthly Chapter Meeting Programs & Workshops 
July 21, 2016
"Learn Lagartera"

    MATERIALS
  • 6" embroidery hoop
  • 8" square of material (Aida cloth does NOT work). This can be a bit smaller. The following fabric counts work well:
    • 22-count Hardanger (design size will be roughly 4" by 3"
    • 25-count Lugana or any 25-count fabric (design size roughly 3.6" by 2.6")
    • 28-count (any fabric) (design size roughly 3.2" by 2.3")
THREADS
One skein size 5 pearl and matching size 8 pearl, if using 22- or 25-count fabric. There is enough in a skein of size 5 pearl for at least two people. For the 28-count fabric, you will need sizes 8 and 12 pearl. You might be able to use sizes 5 and 8 if the fibers in the fabric are fine. Try several satin stitches over 2, 4, and 6 threads and see which you like best. The stitches should lie neatly beside each other without crowding.

"Tiny Stitches"

LEARN TO STITCH OVER ONE
Various techniques for stitching with one strand of floss over one fabric thread will be presented. We are pleased to have received permission from Ruth Sparrow-Gendron of Twisted Threads to use her Needle Necessities Heart design.

    SUPPLIES NEEDED ARE:
  • 32-count Flax Belfast Linen, 8" x 8" (design is 1 7/8" x 1 7/8")
  • Needle Necessities overdyed floss #103 Very Berry (converts to ThreadX #1005 Cherries) or color of your choice
  • Needle Necessities overdyed floss #1761 Concord Grape (converts to ThreadX #1129 Merlot) or color of your choice
  • Twisted Threads heart charm
  • #28 needle
  • Hoop or working frame
  • Good lighting and magnification are recommended.

Correspondence Courses
Our chapter sponsors two correspondence courses every year which means there are many other courses that we will not be offering to our membership. Individuals or small groups of EGA members are always welcome to pay the $175 registration fee and work on any project currently offered by EGA.

 
The next correspondence course is being selected. If you have questions, please contact Linda Norris.

There are also opportunities for individuals to sign up for select classes every month for the low registration fee of $30. Check out the recent Inside EGA newsletter or the EGA website for registration information.

 
Workshops

Cedar Valley Chapter welcomes new members who are interested in participating in workshops sponsored by the chapter.

 

If you are an EGA member, you can join Cedar Valley Chapter for $7, and Heartland Region for $2 (if you aren't already a member of our region). If you are not an EGA member, you can join our chapter, region and EGA for $48.
