Message from NER Director

Hi Everyone!

After a very long wait, it appears that summer has finally arrived! And for me, that means
choosing a colorful, fun, project to work on. As some choose their favorite “summer read” I
choose a summer stitching project. In a last minute decision, I signed up for a class called
“In the Garden” with Celeste Chalasani at Merrimack Valley’s Seminar last weekend in
Billerica. It was a great time, and I’ve begun a beautiful, brightly colored 3 dimensional
embroidery piece that will be my summer project.

So, my question to you is, what will your summer project be? As you choose those projects
and work on them, send me pictures of your progress – I’d love to share them on our NER
Facebook page!
Happy stitching!
