Check out our Facebook page for the picture of our members, Kathy Duffendack and Patty Farrell, presenting the $430 that was collected during the 2018 for the Long Lake Rescue Squad.   Know that Jane Bissell must have been smiling down as they presented the money for the training to Carl Turner, EMT and EMT instructor, on a training night.   Kudos to all the members who worked to make it possible.

Next outing will be at the ADK Experience Fall Fest.   If you haven’t signed up, please do.   While there is only so much space in the room for sewing machines, it would be nice to have members up and circulating to answer visitor questions about the items on display.   It is always an enjoyable day.

Inspired after seeing the 2018 Showcase?  Want to become 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. Don’t be shy and miss out!   Your work can be part of the 2020 Showcase 🙂

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 4:00pm 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.

We donate a portion of our dues each year to local charities as well as donations collected at our biennial showcase.   For the last couple of years we have also been sponsoring two Long Lake students to the ADK Quilt Camp here in Long Lake.   This class provides the sewing machine, fabrics and all materials needed for a completed projected.

Occasionally, meetings are cancelled if the parish hall is needed for a funeral or a religious event.
