I have been working hard to get my work room set up for the fall classes that are going to be starting on September 8th.  The Summer Sewing Camps are all finished and I have been getting lots of calls from people wanting to register for classes.  I am really looking forward to starting these new fall patterns.  I have lots of fleece, wool and even some Jersey Knits to work with and I will have some for sale as well.

I will also start on another 18th Century dress for the historical re-enactments that will be starting soon.  I may have to do some 19th Century dresses that will work for the Civil War re-enactments.

Happy Sewing,

Mary Ann

    Mary Ann, I just read the article in The Record this morning. about you. I wanted to wish you all the best in your endeavor especially on the embroidery side. Embroidery is my passion and I am a member of the EGA. Bergen N J and Poughkeepsie,(Skyllkill) NY chapters as these are the only two who have day time meetings. I used to be a member of Goshen Chapter. before I found the day groups.

    I could see that there would come a day when I could no longer drive those long distances for my fix so I started a Stitch Group in Cornwall. People come with their projects and we stitch, learn and talk. I was hoping to get some of the younger women interested and promote embroidery. It has proved a difficult task, I have around 8 members and they are all older women.

    I enjoy large canvas geometric pieces, large counted cross mainly streets and buildings. I usually have one of each on the go so I can have a change. I also like contemporary Blackwork.

    Most of the women today work and look after their families leaving not much time for embroidery which does require dedication to finish the piece. They tend to prefer knitting, crochet and of course quilting. My group is purely embroidery. My ladies do crewel, canvaswork, counted cross, and stamped. x stitch

    You have a lovely web site. Hope you get a big response to the article.

    Helen
