Monthly Chapter Meeting Programs & Workshops 
January 15, 2015
"Bed of Roses"
Ribbon Embroidery

It is time to learn silk ribbon embroidery! Ronda Smith has prepared a packet which includes the Petite Project "Nosegay of Roses" designed by Margaret Kinsey in 1994 (compliments of the EGA Education Department), as well as the pattern for the sample pictured here. The stitches covered are the spider web rose, buds and leaves. It also includes directions on how to place a pattern on your material and a little history of ribbon embroidery.

Additional Stitching Time
(Just in case you need more ...)
On our regular general meeting days, the 3rd Thursday of the month, we are able to stay and use our meeting site for open stitching until we set up for our evening meeting. Bring a sack lunch to the morning meeting and stay or go out for lunch and return. How long you want to stitch is your prerogative. It will also be a great time to start working on the monthly programs. Can we ever get too much stitching time with friends? I think not. Hope to see you there.

Ribbon to make sample will be provided to those who signed up.

Materials:
  • Silk Ribbon:
    • 4mm ribbon for flower colors - 2 yards (about 12 inches per flower
    • 4mm ribbon green - 1 yard
    • 2mm ribbon gold (for knots) - 2 yards
  • Other Threads:
    • #8 pearl cotton, green for leaf veins - 4 yards [DMC floss for veins & stems]
    • #8 pearl cotton, whith or yellow for knots - 1 yard [ribbon or DMC floss]
  • Other Ribbon:
    • 3/8" to 1/2"-wide satin double-faced off white color - 24 inches (only required for Petite Project)
  • Other Supplies:
    • 6" to 8" square of off-white Moire material (cotton fabric)
    • 6" to 8" embroidery hoop
    • Needles: #18 or larger chenille, #24 chenille, #26 chenille, #8 crewel/embroidery

Possible substitutions are listed in brackets.
February 19, 2015
"A Window to a Garden in Silk"
Hardanger

Solveig Walstrom and Sandy Lnenicka will be using a free pattern provided by Kreinik. This pattern may be stitched in Silk Mori and Silk Serica OF in DMC floss and pearl cotton. For beginners, it will be much easier to use the DMC floss and pearl cotton. Stop by Village Needlework to see a stitched sample. Solveig will discuss the stitches involved as well as hints for working with the silk threads. You will need to supply your own materials, so feel free to change the colors if you so desire.

Materials for February Program:
  • Silk Mori 1092/DMC 3727 Lightest Wood Violet
  • Silk Mori 1105/DMC 3687 Medium Dark Mauve
  • Silk Mori 1107/DMC 3685 Very Dark Mauve
  • Silk Mori 3011/DMC 818 Very Pale Coral
  • Silk Mori 4163/DMC 503 Light Victorian Green
  • Silk Mori 4166/DMC 501 Dark Victorian Green
  • Silk Mori 8000/DMC Blanc White
  • Silk Serica 1092/DMC Pearl #5 3727 Lightest Wood Violet
  • Silk Serica 8000/DMC Pearl #5 Blanc White
  • 28-count white linen (7" X 7" cut size) OR 22-count white Hardanger fabric (8" x 8" cut size)
 
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.
