Tomorrow’s meeting and program of the Friends of Counted Embroidery Laurel chapter has been cancelled.
A luncheon that was to have taken place during the Thursday, June 13 gathering will instead take place in September, when the group resumes its meetings. FCE-Laurel chapter will now be on its summer break.
The Laurel Chapter is one of many chapters of Friends of Counted Embroidery across the nation, and adheres to its mission “to expand our knowledge of all forms of counted embroidery through workshops, lectures, slide presentations, and the mutual exchange of ideas.” The local chapter is enthusiastic about the art of counted embroidery — any needlecraft in which the threads of the fabric are counted to create a design — and is always eager to grow its membership.
Friends of Counted Embroidery Laurel chapter meets the second Thursday of each month, September through June, at Christ the King Lutheran Church on Mt Pleasant Road in Newtown, from 10 am to 2 pm. Walk-ins are welcome. Come as a guest the first time. Yearly membership fee is $25.
Participants are asked to bring a bag lunch, a coffee mug, and basic stitching supplies, as well as a donation for FAITH Food Pantry in Sandy Hook.
