We have a roster for the Adirondack Museum "artist in residence" days where our handcrafts will have a bird theme. We have the volunteers we need to make this wonderful opportunity work. Whether you can assist or not on those days, please come with ideas to share on August 24th. We have some prep work to do for our displays, too.
August schedule for the ADK museum. [click on it and it will download to your machine and can be opened with any document reader] This does not include the name of the volunteers who will come from 11:30- 1:30 to make certain that the full day volunteers can get a break and lunch. Once again many hands have made light work of things!
We will also be participating in the Adirondack Museum's Fall and Fiber Fest again this October. More details and sign ups to come for this.
If you missed the August 10th meeting, John talked about the problems threads have been causing. So before you blame your machine, change thread brands. Some are much less troublesome than others.
Think you might like to be part of our group? Please do come to any meeting and look around. You will find friendly people who are very willing to help you learn a new skill or to have you work alongside them. So don't be shy and miss out!
Northern Needles in Long Lake, NY is composed of over 30 individuals who love to work with all kinds of needlework. Check out our calendar for upcoming events!
Our meetings are held on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month from 10am to 4:30pm at St. Henry’s Parish Hall in Long Lake, NY. Some of our members come to sew or stitch for the entire day, while others join us for just 2-4 hours. Many of our members, particularly those who love to quilt, bring their sewing machines to our meetings. Others bring hand sewing, knitting needles, embroidery needles, or even counted count stitch patterns. We have all levels of expertise in our group from the beginner seamstress to individuals who make absolutely fantastic intricate quilts. Anyone who would like to attend our meetings is more than welcome to come, and we send out email reminders prior to each meeting to those who have expressed an interest in attending. If, in the future, you decide that you would like to be a member of our group, we do collect annual dues of $20 , which also gives you a discount at Jo-Ann's Fabric store. We donate a portion of our dues each year to the Long Lake Community Food Pantry, and in 2014 after our August, 2014 Quilt & Fiber Arts Showcase we were able to give the Food Pantry all of the money we collected, over $550.
Occasionally, meetings are cancelled if the parish hall is needed for a funeral or a religious event.
