Year-long Project

Our 2023 year long project is "Fiesta", designed by Mary Knapp. You will find the complete instructions for this project in the July/August 2022 Needle Pointers Magazine. If you can't find your magazine, go to the ANG website ( and select Needle Pointers Magazine from the Membership button on the home page. We will work this in four parts, with one part per meeting and various chapter members leading each part of this project.

“Fiesta” is a colorful patch sampler of composite stitches. Each area presents challenges, yet the size of the piece keeps everything manageable.

Ground fabric is 18-count canvas

Design Area is a 7 3⁄4" square.

The original piece is worked on black canvas, however, you may use any color of canvas.

Suggested threads include silk, Kreinik braids, cotton floss, satin floss and Neon Rays. NAS is not assembling kits for this project.
