June Meeting – Upcoming Deadline and New Location

Due to repairs, we cannot meet at Holy Trinity Church for our June meeting. Alternative arrangements have been made to meet at LaDonna’s club house at 41080 Solti Way, Leesburg, VA 20175. If you have any questions, please contact LaDonna at (571)420-7224 or love2stitch16@yahoo.com

At this meeting, member Pamela Darney will be teaching her Hall Mirror Sampler for the very first time. 

The Hall Mirror Sampler

Pam is so clever!  In this sampler, the text is stitched as a mirror-image.  Hang it opposite your own hall mirror, or bedroom or whatever, and the text will be clear!  One has to wonder what sampler scholars a hundred years from now will make of this.  Can’t  you just imagine the academic theory:  “Chafing against the rigid orthodoxy of the sampler tradition, a group of radical needleworkers in the mid-Atlantic region in early 21st century America subverted the boundaries of the past with their reinvention of the textual aspects of samplerworks.”  Tee-hee.

 The deadline for registration is June 1.

    Thanks so much for including me in your newsletters. I enjoy them very much.

    How can I get the Mirror Image Sampler? Is it an exclusive of your guild or can I purchase it on the web? I would love to stitch the pattern.

    Hoping to hear from you, Mary JoAnn
