Needlework Show

When I saw the advertisement for the Oktoberfest Needlework Show in the Needle Arts magazine, I knew that I wanted to go. I was certain that there would be some beautiful pieces of needlework on display. I had seen some of their finishes a year earlier when I took two Ellen Chester classes with their guild last year. The show did not disappoint!

The show was sponsored by the Coulee Country Chapter of the EGA. About 35 of their members had contributed to the show; another 15 stitchers from the area also entered their needlework finishes.

There were small and large cross stitch pieces on display. These were two of my favorite smalls.

This three dimensional quilt was awesome!

Of course, I was partial to the many finished needlework items. I need to do the finishing on my Ellen Chester box.

And I need to get my Huswifs stitched!

This box was finished by a friend...

I'm glad we made the drive down to see the show!
