2014 Yearly Project
Our 45th Anniversary

CWJ became a Chapter of EGA in Sept 1969. 
Our 2014 Yearly Project is to celebrate these past 45 years by
creating an embroidery with the theme 45

November’s Show ‘N Tell is the time to display your design of “45”.

Here’s some ideas - make a name tag 4.5” by 4.5” or use 45 beads.
Remember, we are required to wear a “Stitched” name tag each month
or pay the kitty .25 cents.

Maybe we’ll see a “Sampler” stitched with 45 rows or 45 words.

Keep Calm and Continue Stitching. 


Save the Dates:

Catherine Jordan coming next year stay tuned for more information.


Kissing pillows
The original Kissing Pillow was designed by Geraldine Trappey in 2005.  Geraldine is a member of the Yellow Rose EGA Chapter in Texas.  In the Fall of 2006, Geraldine and the Yellow Rose Chapter began offering the project to all Embroiderers’ Guild of America Chapters. The Colonial West Jersey Chapter began making the Kissing Pillows in 2008 and has continued to make them as one of our Community Outreach projects.
