With spring around the corner it is a pleasure to introduce the newest Petite Project for members. Floral Needle Nanny/Finder #3 by designer Lorna Bateman, one of our members-at-large from England. The small, 1.5 inches in size, floral allows embroiderers to select their favorite flower colors and also the stitches to be used.
Lorna’s instructions give her choices but you are encouraged to select from her listings or your own favorites. Simples stitches are used and more complex ones are included in the Stitch Glossary for the adventurous. While designed as a place for you to park your needles while you are working, it is also appropriate with the proper fittings for a brooch or a needle case. Enjoy this gift from Lorna and the Education Department. – Carole Rinard, Education Publications

The projects are thoroughly tested and proofread by the education publications committee. If you need help in the presentation, we are willing to assist.
