One of our goals as an ANG Chapter is to learn new techniques as well as have fun through projects presented at our chapter meetings. We also encourage socializing, learning from one another, and sharing completed and in-progress works.
Our Program Chair continues to identify fun projects at reasonable costs for us to work as a group during 2020.
- We began the year with a community service project – Hearts for Hospice. Hearts for Hospice is a wonderful philanthropic project run by the members of the Greater Kansas City Needlepoint Guild. This project was initiated in 2015 to fulfill a need at a local hospice center. When a resident passes away, a heart is placed on the door notifying others to be respectful of those mourning. Each NJNA member was provided an 8″x8″ canvas to use their own threads and design to create their heart for the program. Many used their own canvas in addition to their own threads and stitched at least 75 hearts that were sent to the Kansas City Needlepoint Guild for finishing and distribution. Click Hearts for Hospice Composite to see the sampling provided by NJNA.
- Crystal Waters by Carolyn Mitchell is an elegant scissor case and scissor fob.
- Kimono by Margaret Bendig will give stitchers an opportunity to stitch one or more of Margaret Bendig’s seasonal Kimonos.
- We will have several stitch-ins to catch up on projects and will have discussions of the Woodlawn exhibit and favorite stitching books during our salad supper.

Since one of NJNA’s missions is to give back to our community, we have done various Community Service Projects over the years. We have also spent time remembering some of our members who are no longer with us (NJNA Remembers…).
