This weekend, August 2nd and 3rd, The Enriched Stitch will be hosting the first Needlepoint Nation East Stitch In. People from the all around the tri-state area and as far away as Virginia will be traveling to the shop to meet fellow stitchers from the Facebook group Needlepoint Nation. Originally, this was an invite only group, but now it is open to the public. People post pictures of their finished work, ask for advice, and enable each other with their stitching addictions.
A few months ago, a group in Texas met up at The Needleworks. Pictures flooded NP Nation and I just couldn’t resist hosting an East Coast get together. It just looked like so much fun!
We still have a few open chairs for Friday and Saturday. We will be stitching upstairs in our classroom from 10-4. Registration is required. $25 per day to join us. I will provide lunch, coffee and snacks. We are also offering “enrichment session” where you can work privately with myself or one of the teachers in the shop. These sessions are by appointment and cost $50/hour.
Even if you are not part of this Facebook group, you are still welcome to join us, as long as we have space. Call the shop this week or sign up online.
