-A A +A

Pajarito Chapter, Embroiderers’ Guild of America will display needlework in a case in the lobby of the Mesa Public Library from Sept. 15-28.
The types of embroidery stitched by members of the Pajarito Chapter have unusual names like Hardanger, Romanian point lace and blackwork.
The EGA is a national educational organization dedicated to promoting and preserving needle arts.
The local chapter meets at 7 p.m. Monday in Gibson Fellowship Hall of Bethlehem Lutheran Church. Each meeting features a program about a stitching technique or project. During the past year the group has explored needle felting, blackwork, drawn thread, curved stitchery, Romanian point lace, as well as various elements of design and color.
From 10 a.m. to noon Sept. 21, members of Pajarito Chapter will be in the lobby of Mesa Public Library to demonstrate various embroidery techniques. Come and watch the stitchers at work. They’ll be happy to explain the various techniques and answer the public’s questions.
