I just joined ANG and went to my first local meeting last night. I also joined my local chapter, Needle Point Stitchers Chapter in Kirtland, OH. I is a great group! Most of their stitching projects are counted needlepoint on #18 mesh. I will have a lot to learn (I've never stitched counted needlepoint) and will need a new magnifier! So much fun to be surrounded by like-minded stitchers!
