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.
2018 has a myriad of fun projects and techniques – Winter Stars, Valentine Heart, Mille Fleur, and more. Check out our 2018 Chapter Programs page for more details!
Our 2017 projects encouraged some creativity and new techniques, including creating and finishing NJNA Name Tags , Shell Game where we learned to create stitched shells and attach real shells to our work, and Kandi Korn with finishing as a stand-up easel. Check out our 2017 Chapter Programs page for more details and photos!
- NJNA tried something new in 2016 – mini projects that covered a wide range of stitches and techniques! NJNA provided members with instructions and canvas for each of these small projects. Any member who completed at least three received a prize at the end of the year of a pair of cute bunny scissors! Most of the projects were great stash-busters and required no purchases! Members were provided with the threads listed for the stitched model, and were encouraged to use them to pick similar threads from their stash (e.g., I had lots of Waterlilies and DMC in my stash for Starburst – but no Treasure Braid. So, I googled it and found that #4 Kreinik was a good substitute and I had lots of that in my stash!)
