Stitch-in Chair, 3rd Maritime Stitch-In

At the third annual Maritime Stitch-in in Truro, September 10th, random packets of donated crewel wool and pieces of canvas were given out to those interested in a Needle Book Challenge. The end of October was given as a deadline and below you will see the results. We have very talented and imaginative embroiderers who love to practice their art and take on any challenge. Thanks go out to those who answered the challenge and to those who wanted to but life got in the way!

Beverly Parsons: I had finished the Bargello piece the Tuesday after the stitch-in. I did the flame stitch with the Hungarian point. Couldn't send it as I'm having camera problems. (Use your imagination!! – L)
