Hello everyone! So glad to see a group of stitchers with a few recent posts
. I started a google group call SE Minnesota Stitchers but have no idea how
 to find people who would be interested. This is the only active stitching  
group I can even find...hand stitching seems to be either a dying art or an
 art practiced in isolation. If any of you have ideas about how to meet oth
er stitchers in my area, please let me know.

Re: Anyone in MN?

Hello Sharon...I'm glad to know there's at least one other minnesotan who stitches! Have you been able to find any stitching guilds in MN? I believe there's a few in the Dakota's which might be closer to you.


Re: Anyone in MN?
I haven't really looked for any.  I guess I should.  Might be kind of fun.

Hello Jinx....if you ever come down this way let me know and perhaps we can meet up and stitch a bit. TWO people from MN on this board, what a wonder!

Hi Janie--

There are SEVERAL stitching groups in the the Twin Cities. Both the Embroid
erer's Guild of America and the American Needlepoint Guild have chapters he
re. There is also the Needlework Guild of Minnesota and Ladyslippers, which
 are independent groups not affiliated with national organizations. There i
s a chapter of the International Lace Society. There is also an information
 group that has organized on Facebook. NONE of them have membership fees of
 $150. Not sure what group you were looking at that has dues that high. Tru
st me, there are PLENTY of stitchers in Minnesota.

Re: Anyone in MN?

Thank you for letting me know Carol. I'm disabled and can't make it to the Twin Cities on my own...but about once a year a can hitch a ride up there. I'll look up some of the groups you mentioned!


Re: Anyone in MN?
Not sure what this post was about but I am in Moorhead, MN.  I am right on  
the ND/MN border.  I am not sure if there are any stitching groups around  
but I am thinking of checking into it.
