North Star Needlework Guild!

I had no idea something like this existed until the fair this year.  The Guild meets on the third Monday of each month, and has a lot of fun.  They offer classes for different techniques given by members, and encourage people to do little classes for others if they have experience and want to share.   
They also do a yearly needlework retreat, Christmas party with swap, are a big part of the needlework and craft area of the Tanana Valley State Fair, and are a lot of fun to chat with.  Members are of all ages, and very welcoming. 

I just went for the first time tonight and had a blast!  They recommended you bring a little something, doesn't even have to be needlework to play with during the meeting, and also to feel free to bring a bigger project to show off.  You can get tips and techniques from some master needleworkers too.  I can't get over how much fun it was to attend!!

It's neat to get to know other local people with similar interests.  I they said you can come to a few meetings before choosing to join and pay dues.  I can't remember how much it is for a year, but I know it wasn't super expensive, and I'm totally paying next time.

I know it's sort of a long shot to post up here, but if anyone is new (or old) to Fairbanks and even mildly interested in any aspect of needlework - cross stitch, embroidery, crewl, candlewicking, tatting, etc etc etc  - it's worth checking out.   Grin

They have a group on yahoo groups, and on Facebook if you look up the name. 

Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!
