Stitching Group

On the 2nd Tuesday of every month, a group of 12 stitchers meet at our LNS and eat dinner together at different local restaurants, then we go to the shop and stitch and share local newspaper stories, TV programs, movies, books, etc., with a little gossip thrown in for good measure, LOL! It has been a rough winter here, so the group these last couple of months has been smaller. At Christmas, we don't go to dinner away, but bring in finger foods made at home and a wrapped handmade ornament. The girls who own the shop put numbers on the packages, and we draw numbers that match the ornaments. It's a really nice time each and every month. Here are a couple of pix of the last stitching meeting in February. I should have taken more pix of the actual shop. It's a large, really nice shop, full of goodies for every stitcher!

What part of Illinois? I think we will be making a road trip next year and I would like to add your LNS to the sites to see. We will be heading to Chicago and then to Pennsylvania....or PA first and then Chicago and then back to Vegas. Not sure yet.

Thanks for sharing. Our local quilting shop is making room for stitching & other crafts in a week....retreats, classes, etc. (5 min from my house)....maybe a vacation for a SAH mom?
Enjoy your get togethers.
