September 2016 Program

We will look at Area F Petite Floral and Area G Florentine Tree on our ongoing project of Holiday Patches.


We have selected our chapter project for 2017, Waterlilies by Jennifer Reifenberg. This beautiful project features 3 dimensional water lilies sitting on a lovely field of bargello and other stitches.

It has come to our attention that there are additional fees involved to offer the Waterlilies Correspondence Course. In addition to the course registration fee that our chapter is paying, there is also a $55 teaching fee for each registrant.  The kit is an additional $65 plus $12.95 shipping.  A color printout of the PDF is $20.

To offset this unexpected charge, we will be underwriting $30 of the $55 teaching fee for the first 80 registrants for this project.  To register, you must be a member of SDANG for 2016-2017.  For those joining now to participate in this project, we will waive the $5 prorated membership fee for 2016.  Please go to our Programs page to sign up for this beautiful project.

Save the date for our annual Holiday Party

SDANG and Muchos Manos will celebrate the holidays with a delicious luncheon on 12/11/16. Mark your calendars!

Annual Dues

Renewal of membership is due by January. Please join us for next year! You can renew on our membership page.


Refreshments at meetings are wonderful but they only happen if people sign up to share in the responsibility of providing them. Sadly, we will have no snacks in October. If you would like to participate with our hospitality program, please contact to volunteer. Many hungry stitchers will appreciate your efforts!
