Jan and I completed the final “Stitch Your Way Around the World” project for this session of the Calgary Public Library with a return visit to the Ukraine.
Participants could choose from two different Ukrainian cross stitch patterns and learn about aida cloth and counted cross stitch and there was a great amount of concentration as they carefully counted the rows on the cloth in preparation for stitching. Several people commented that they felt very relaxed while they stitched.

While we were stitching up on the second floor of the Fish Creek Library Branch, the 5th Annual Fibre Arts Fair was being hosted on the main floor with several fibre arts groups giving demos on rug hooking, quilting and other fibre related crafts.
We took the opportunity to have a table with information on the Fibre Optics Group (FOG) available to those who were interested.
Registration is now open for the May-August library programs. We will be doing a framed project at each session of “The Lost Art of Ribbon Work”.
