The purpose of the Santa Clara Valley Chapter (SCVC) is to educate and promote technique, color, and design in needlework, and to encourage interest in this creative work.
Why I joined?
I initially joined so I could have someone to talk to about stitching when my stitching friend moved away. Then I discovered a world of techniques besides cross stitch, some of which I really took a liking to, like stumpwork. The educational opportunities are great. Jo V.
Sharing information and appreciation of our craft/art with others. Michael J.
I wanted to find stitching friends who were as serious about stitching as I am, to improve my skills, find knowledgeable instruction, and find retail resources. Margaret McL.
Show and Tell time which gives me a deadline and an opportunity to get feedback, including positive reinforcement and tips/ideas on how to work through a problem. I’ve learned a lot from others. Claudia D.
Happy November Stitchers! We had a wonderful Stitch in Public at a new venue and time on Saturday October 14. The brewery is welcoming and bright. Thanks for being innovative Caroline B. There was also a Regional Meeting via Zoom that same morning. Roberta P was elected Treasurer for the Region again.
We hope to see you at Patty H’s home on Nov 1st for the first Wednesday stitching. Thanks to Patty for hosting again!
This month is busy as we lead up to the holidays. I know I’m starting all my holiday crafting in preparation. As an early reminder, we are having a special holiday meeting in person on Dec 13 at Sobrato. Please try to join us for our potluck lunch and other treats.
Happy Stitching everyone!
