Summer Stitching Challenge 2018
Your challenge for the summer is to learn some new knot stitches and create something. It can be a sampler, or something you are working on and add some knot stitches to, or whatever else you would like to do. Bring your knotty stitching to the September meeting.
Have a great summer!
