Through the Needle's Eye
An Exhibit of our Needlework

needlework exhibit


Favored, this time, were the fun foam picture frames.  And did they love doing them.  Programs are set up with age and ability appropriate projects.  Some want and need little help while others needed our hands and full support to guide their stitches.  

 Frames, threads, buttons, needles and scissors were all over the tables.  Busy fingers and bowed heads attest to the enthusiasm given to the task at hand.  CWJ member, Charlotte Froman ran the activity for the eager children.
