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.

Blackwork Group

This group of stitchers began participating in a Peppermint Purple 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. Since then, members have tried other blackwork stitchalongs as well as blackwork projects from a variety of sources.

We meet every two weeks via Zoom to share our progress with each other. Feel free to contact us if you are interested in participating.

Goldwork Study Group

This group is new this year for the Mohawk Valley Chapter. They meet on Mondays at 6:30 pm via Zoom. Members will be working on indivdual projects as they explore different goldwork techniques. The group is being led by one of our members. All skill levels are welcome.

The goal of this group is to encourage interest in this form of needlework and share what they learn with each other. Each person has chosen a project on which they are working. There are no rules as they continue to share their interest and enjoyment of their projects.

Contact us for more information.
