Meetings (September though June)

On October 15, 2016, we toured the Webb-Deane-Stevens Museum in Wethersfield for a behind-the-scene view of this historic and well-preserved collection. After lunch, we worked on a project to create beautiful bargello balls using four values of the same color, from very dark to very light.

Our meeting on December 3, 2016 will be a holiday luncheon following by show and tell of any recently completed projects.

On June 17, 2017, we will have Catherine Theron back for another beautiful project. The piece is entitled “My Peaceable Kingdom” and is worked on 30-count vanilla linen, this lovely, “peaceable” sampler will provide hours of pleasurable stitching. The top section features a lady in her garden complete with dogs, lilacs and bee skeps. The center has a colonial home reminiscent of the
houses in Williamsburg, VA, “alphabet trees”, a family, pets and plenty of birds. The center bottom area has an over-1 village scene surrounded by the wild woods and various woodland creatures. The piece is outlined by a flowing strawberry border. Stitches used include long arm cross, Smyrna cross, stem, diagonal satin, padded satin, petit point, colonial knot, straight, spiral trellis and several
others. A myriad of colorful silk and cotton threads are used to create this scene.

We are still selling the books from the CRVC library (see lists here: http://www.crvc-ega.org/library.html). We will be ending the sale at the end of the year, and disposing of the remainder of the volumes at that time.
