December 2023 Holiday Party

North Coast Needlers closed out 2023 with a wonderful holiday party!  Members and friends brought delicious appetizers, main dishes, salads, sides and deserts!



After a fulfilling and delicious meal with friends.  Many of our members and guests shared their other talents!  Our members can do so much more then quilt! We have folks who draw, paint, bead, cross stitch, knit, crotchet, embroidery, make dolls, sew on leather and so many fun ways of expressing themselves.  It was a fun way to learn more about each other!












  Happy holidays!  See you in 2024 with more fun and surprises!

North Coast Needlers October and November 2023

North Coast Needlers members were very busy with the successful quilt show "Autumn Splendor" in October.  The quilt show team hung many fabulous quilts, raffled numerous baskets, sold hand-made items and so much more. We thank all of the membership for volunteering and sharing their talent, as well as the quilt show team that organized the successful event.  Below are just a few of the entries from our guild.



And one of our own members of NCN won the lovely "Lavender Fields Raffle Quilt"!

After the November business meeting, members shared with us many of the projects that they have completed or in the process of completing during "Show and Tell".



Then we have an engaging presentation by artist Clare Murray Adams  "From Contemporary Quilt to Mixed Media Paint and Collage".  Clare's slide presentation showed her many projects with fabrics, paints, papers and so many other mediums. There are so many ways to play and manipulate and create!
