May Meeting 5/9/17

We will be continuing our work on our 2017 Chapter project, Waterlilies by Jennifer Reifenberg. This month we will be doing Lily pad #2, Serendipity Stitch. This is a versatile stitch that works well in small areas and is easy to compensate.  For a nice description and diagram of the stitch check out Rittenhouse Needlepoint's website. It is their stitch of the week for Friday, February 26, 2010. We will also be offering some mini projects to complement the piece throughout the year, including this stumpwork dragonfly.


Special Events

SDANG is proud to participate in a number of needlework related events around the area which support our love of our craft. These include the 2017 Del Mar Quilt, Craft and Sewing Fair and the San Diego County Fair Home and Hobby Show. SDANG member Margi Thornburgh graciously coordinates our participation in these venues. Stitching opportunities include displaying your finished pieces as well as demonstrating and teaching your needlepoint skills. Click here to learn more about how you can participate.


Refreshments at meetings are wonderful but they only happen if people sign up to share in the responsibility of providing them. If you would like to participate with our hospitality program, please contact to volunteer. Many hungry stitchers will appreciate your efforts!
