During the month of August, we had a display at the downtown Cedar Rapids Public Library on the second floor in the hallway that goes to the skywalk. The pieces were selected to show a wide variety of needlework techniques. Information about Cedar Valley Chapter and Through the Needle's Eye was included in the display.

From August 6 to October 8, Cedar Valley Chapter of the Emboiderers' Guild of America, Inc. and the Marion Heritage Center will be hosting "Through the Needle's Eye", the Embroiderers' Guild of America 20th National Exhibit. The Marion Heritage Center is open from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. Download THIS Adobe PDF file with details.

 
Monthly Chapter Meeting Programs & Workshops 
October 20, 2016
"Penny for Your Thoughts"
Penny Rug Coasters or Mug Rugs

Penny Rugs can be made into either a coaster or mug rug. Here is a list of materials to use if you want to follow along. This is such a nice, easy project that would make great gifts on the spur of the moment.

    Materials:
  • 1 ball #8 black pearl cotton
  • 1 piece black wool felt (or craft felt will do) 9"x9" or 4" if buying by the yard.
  • 1 piece of 2 colors of coordinating flower colors of wool felt (or craft felt) 4"x4" or 2" if buying by yard
  • 1 piece 4"x4" green wool felt (or craft felt) or 1" if buying by the yard.
  • Chenille needle size #22
  • Fabric scissors to cut felt
  • Basting thread

"Blooms of Another Era"
Stumpwork

Thank you to Pat Nauman for stitching the sample piece.

The idea for the November program came from an original project by Shay Pendray in the March 2000 issue of Stitcher's World. With her permission, we have used a portion of that lesson with a few modifications to make it your own.

Since this requires a small amount of each of several supplies, we will prepare kits that include the wire, felt bits, plastic and pieces of muslin or cotton at a small charge. You will likely already have most of the other items in your stash.

    Supplies:
  • Ground fabric for needlecase front, back and lining - closely woven linen of your choice
  • DMC floss in colors of your choice
  • Piece of fabric for petals - muslin, cotton (6"x6")
  • #9 crewel needle or 22 or 24 chenille needle
  • Tracing paper and pencil or fine-tip pernament marking pen
  • Scissors
  • Small hoop
  • 28- or 30-guage wire
  • Bit of felt for ladybug
  • Lightweight plastic (like that used for quilting)
  • Twisted cord
- Phyllis Olson
 
Correspondence Courses

Great news! A new Group Correspondence Course has been chosen -- it will be "Isabella -- Italian Drawn Thread." Eighteen people have indicated interest in taking this course! We plan to work on this course to the end of the year, and then proceed with the next course, "Beginning Teneriffe Lace," after the first of the year, since 15 people have already shown interest in it.

Click on the link in the lower left sidebar and scroll down to Isabella.

Our Cedar Valley Chapter will pay the $175 class fee, and each participant will pay the $42 text fee. If anyone wants to volunteer to lead the class, her/his text fee will be waived. If anyone else is interested in this course, there are a few spaces (3) left -- let me know. Hoping to receive your check soon so we can get started. Thanks.
Sheri Ekstrom, GCC Chairman

 

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.

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.
