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

Hello Stitchers! 

Happy April! I hope your spring is full of blooming flowers and sunny stitching. First, we are very fortunate to have Lois K leading a program at our April day meeting about Sashiko Stitching. I hope you will make every effort to join us in person for this very interesting presentation. 

It’s coming close to membership renewal time. Check out the Membership section in our newsletter for all the news. And lastly, check out May stash sale regarding a lovely fabric donation we received and the plan to make it available to members.

I look forward to seeing you at a meeting soon!
