SATURDAY, JULY 28TH, 9 AM until 3 PM
Perimeter Church, 9500 Medlock Bridge Rd., Johns Creek, GA 

This is the event that is highly anticipated by everyone! Clean out your stash of items you know you'll never use, and make room for new stuff as we hold our annual stash sale. Spend the day stitching with friends and buying everything needlework related including threads, kits, charts, frames, and more. It's like a giant needlework garage sale and you never know what treasures you'll find! All needleworkers are welcome. You DO NOT have to be an EGA member to attend.

You price your donated items, and we'll take it from there. Bring a sack lunch, cash and/or your checkbook and whatever WIP (work in progress) you'd like to work on. The chapter will provide dessert and drinks.

There will be door prizes and a tea cup auction as well. If you have a hand stitched item to donate for the tea cup auction, please let us know by emailing 

Extension cords will not be allowed, so please bring battery powered lights or a project that doesn't require a lot of light. 

Proceeds from this event fund our chapter's education programs.

"Plan to Finish First"

"The finish of any piece of needlework becomes an integral part of the design affecting and hopefully contributing to the unity,message and purpose. As much care and thought should go into the planning of the  finish as goes into the beginning design process. Learn how to combine the focus  of designing a piece of needlework with the possibilities of creative finishes to ensure everything works together for spectacular results! "

Lecture is free for all EGA Dogwood Members.

"It’s all about the presentation as the appearance and anticipation of a gift elicit as much excitement and wonder as the present that awaits inside! Counted, pulled and drawn thread techniques worked on 1" wide linen banding (28 count) make up the ribbons and bow that adorn the 5" square glass box. Participants will have options to work as few or as many of the stitches as shown, change color, as well as adding additional words to personalize their box."
This is a 2-day intermediate class.
