  • Monthly meetings include a business meeting as well as a program and stitch-in.
  • Guests are always welcome.

Our November 4 meeting will be held at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, 25 Oxford Road, New Hartford, NY 13413. Join us for a meeting and a program on “Tips and Tricks”. Members will be sharing their secrets for successful projects, storage, needlework tools, etc. Join the conversation and add some tips of your own.

Sit and Stitch

Join us as we share time to stitch and chat from our own homes via Zoom. These get togethers are held on Wednesday evenings from 6:00 – 7:30 every two weeks. Contact us if you wish to participate.

Special Interest Groups

These online groups have been developed to educate and encourage stitchers who are interested in a particular type of stitching or project. To participate, contact us.

Peppermint Purple

This group of stitchers began participating in this blackwork stitch-a-long via Zoom meetings early in 2021. For more information about Peppermint Purple and blackwork, follow this link. Stitch-a-longs are great fun as they are completed one small piece at a time throughout a year. This link will show you how our stitchers used a variety of colors, threads, and borders in 2021. For 2022, some of us are continuing with this project, while others are branching out and participating in other stitch-a-longs.

Coming soon…

Check back to find out about a new group forming during 2022. Members will be focusing on goldwork.
