Stitched for Christmas but useful all year round, work will continue on this charming etui worked onto pristine white linen with variegated thread in shades of forest green, white, gold and red.

There's a lot to look forward to in June! Business meeting, installation of officers, summer challenge reveal and a presentation of 2023-24 projects.
