Linda, Lori, and I are here in Washington DC representing the Main Line Stitchers Chapter. Our chapter is entering our 35th year together. The colors of our logo changed over the years but it remains essentially the same. This has been on display at Seminar for many years. Has your chapter sent your logo to display? Once you send it in, they keep it and display it year after year.

Also in the picture are the goodies from registration and the banquet dinner. Trish Vine made 450 of her plastic project bags! She also made my lanyard.

Can you believe that 2 chapters stitched 450 of those ornaments? Mine is stitched with beads on both sides. Wow! Way to go Nova & Seashore ANG Chapters. I have to ask Brenda or Roseanne if that’s the Delaware ANG chapter. Probably is them.

I ran into Gretchen Janesak from Threads in Charlottesville, VA & she remembered me visiting the ANG Hampton Roads Sandpipers Chapter near Virginia Beach. She was teaching the day I visited. Gretchen is the designer and stitcher of the Seminar logo, Stars, Stripes, and Stitches on the cover of the booklet and the pin. Very pretty. I was very honored and pleased to hear her say she enjoys my blog! Thanks again Gretchen.

As in Woodlawn earlier this year, there were a variety of wonderful pieces on display from the family of Mary Duckworth, once a longstanding member of Nelly’s Needler’s.

Also, “Valley Tapestry” from the Shenandoah EGA chapter is on display and I joined the community of stitchers who have contributed to the piece. You can sit down and stitch a small section that will make its way onto the larger piece. It had a nice write up in the EGA magazine.

I’ll share more about my 2 pieces after I get home so I can include comments from the judge’s critique. I did get 3rd place for Crescent Journey and 2 people have made it a point to say how interesting Purples Mountain Majesty is.

One of the pieces I loved from Woodlawn this year was 2 large coy fish with 32,000 beads stitched by Katherine Ludlow Callahan which got a 2nd place ribbon. Well, she got the State Award and Honorable Mention in the Painted Canvas without stitch guide category. Congratulations! And, what are the odds that the identical design would appear under Painted Canvas with stitch guide. That won a 1st place ribbon.

So many pretty pieces that I’m glad I’m not a judge.

Hi Melita. Yes, it’s the ANG Delaware’s Seashore Chapter that helped the NOVA Chapter stitch the fobs. Thanks for inquiring.
