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.

President's message

Happy July! I hope your summer is off to a good start and that your AC is tuned up. It’s hot out there. Nice time for beach walks and stitching in the cool shade. The big news this month is the GPR Seminar from July 19-25. Many guild members will be attending so it’ll be a great time to gather, learn, and stitch together. Safe travels to everyone attending.

The June program was a big hit and the beautiful new bracelets, and at least one necklace, are quite lovely. This month’s will also be a fun program. Check out the Programs section to get a fuller explanation but the gist of it is, for all of us to bring in an early piece of needlework that challenged us and taught us something. I hope you’ll join in the fun! Don't forget that the business meeting is in person and on Zoom. There’s a lot of news from the Region Board meeting, please check out the Region News section for all the scoop.

We’ll be asking for nomination committee volunteers for 2025 officers at the July meetings. If you’re interested in volunteering either for the nominating committee or for a roll as an officer, please let me know.

Happy Stitching!
