Welcome to CNY EGA!

At each CNY EGA meeting, we take an adventure in needle art through various projects. Needle art is a product created with a needle. Some examples of needle art are embroidery, needlepoint, tapestry, appliqué, beading, and more. All levels of experience are welcome, even if you have no experience. Come and meet new people and learn about needle art.

This month at CNY EGA...

We will walk through different finishing options for the Ribbonere Scissor case by Margaret Bendig; scissor case, bookmark, and needle case. This was the 2022 November program, but it was cut short due to the weather.

You will need the following:

  • A Finished Ribbonere Top, or a finished piece in a small rectangle shape

  • Interface

  • Lining Fabric, Ultra Suede, or Wool

  • Thread, I prefer quilting thread. I may use floss or pearl, depending on the technique

  • Scissors

  • Needles

  • Pins
