Cataraqui Guild of Needle Arts Learn a Stitch


An interesting and challenging program is offered at each meeting. As a teaching guild, CGNA has initiated a program called "Learn a stitch" where a new stitch is taught in an informal group setting, enabling those who profess themselves "beginner" stitchers or stitchers new to a specific technique, to enhance their skills.

For Beginners:

"Embroidery 101" written by Mary Lou Wilson for beginners (includes Finishing)

"Little Book of Embroidery Basics" by Patricia Lufholm, Permian Basin Needle Arts Chapter, The Embroiderers’ Guild of America (A collection of hints, tips, tricks and other assorted tidbits to encourage and enable an embroiderer to learn, improve and enhance her/his skills)
