Diane Scott graciously designed an ornament, and the anniversary committee promoted it to the TGS members encouraging them to stitch the ornament Kits with beads, a selection of red fibers, beads and white linen were included in the kit along with a pattern that included 12+ different designs that could be stitched in the various panels of the ornament. This allowed each one to be personal to the stitcher, and yet reflective of the Ruby Anniversary.

What was created, you will see, is masterpiece after masterpiece. Each one finished slightly different than the next. Some even revamped into something completely different, yet still reflective of the anniversary. Below are only some of the many pieces that were on display.
