EGA’s Laurel Chapter in North Carolina donates 150 Stitched Bookmarks

Our Laurel Chapter in North Carolina creates handmade, stitched bookmarks each year for the Henderson County Library’s Youth Coordinator and for the Blue Ridge Literacy Council.

This month the chapter members donated 150 bookmarks. As this is an annual outreach, our total bookmark donation over the past six years has been over 750 items!

The bookmarks are all unique and are done with a variety of techniques including counted cross stitch, felting, surface embroidered paper, ribbon, darning and perforated paper. The patterns for several of the bookmarks can be found in the following links:

Card stitched Bookmark and Sampler Bookmark from the March 20202 issue of Needle Arts

Decorative Darning Bookmark from our September 2020 Stitch-a-long

Bookworm Bookmark by Catherine Jordan from our 2019 Stitch-a-long

Samples from this year donations are pictured below.
