Do you ever wonder if the members of your Chapter
have enough finished works to combine for a successful
Needle Arts Show?.. enough variety / different techniques
so illustrate that ‘embroidery’ is not the few surface stitches
so many of us learned many years ago.
 
These were the thoughts of the members of Alderney Needlearts
Guild and Stitchery Guild of Bedford members when we were first
approached and asked to consider mounting such a display
in conjunction with Quilt Canada 2012. ... would we have enough pieces
that were not duplicates? (so many of us have duplicates because we
have done the Guild projects or taken the same courses)... and what about
variety of techniques?

We took a leap of faith and agreed to mount the display and the die was cast...
and the listing of the needlearts show was included in events section.
 
And so it began....
