WEIRTON - The Nifty Needles Neighborhood Group of the Pittsburgh Chapter of the American Sewing Guild met recently at the First Christian Church located on Main Street, with Leader Carol Village welcoming nine members to the September meeting.
Susan Maze announced the guild's Christmas Tea would be held Dec. 1 at the Edgewood Country Club in Pittsburgh. There will be a handmade coaster exchange, Chinese auction and fashion show, with members modeling their own creations.
During show-and-tell, Kay Nixon displayed two counted cross stitch squares, "Garden Babies." They will be incorporated into a quilt for a terminally ill child. Middy Freese displayed a cloth tic-tac-toe board; Nancy Sanders, a child's craft apron; and Dale Negle, a felted rabbit picture.
Negle presented a program on ruffled scarves, and members were given variegated ribbon yarn, needles and instructions.
Members displayed the floral pins they had created from colored zippers, having received instruction from Sanders in the project at the August meeting.
JoAnne Gorrell was awarded the door prize.
Village will present the program next month.
