The Needle Arts Guild of Toledo will hold its 38th Annual Needlework Show this Friday and Saturday at Sanger Branch of the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library, at 3030 W. Central Ave.
This show is free and open to the public. It will run Friday from 9 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m.
This year ºs chairperson is Diane Myers of Grand Rapids.
Judging of the nearly 100 entries will take place on Thursday. The judge this year is Carol Lynn Stratton of Uniontown. Nearly 100 works of art that are stitched by hand have been received from Colorado, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Indiana and Ohio. The stitched pieces to be judged range from counted cross stitch items, to embroidery, hardanger, cutwork, and more. Creative pieces will also be entered.
Beth Thompson, formerly of Grand Rapids, has entered a crazy quilt embroidery box using many techniques. This wooden box overlaid with the stitching depicts many events in her life. Members of the guild will be on hand to demonstrate and to answer any questions concerning needlework.

The NAGT is comprised of 38 members who live in northwest Ohio, southeast Michigan, Indiana and Pennsylvania. The guild's monthly meetings are held at the Maumee Senior Center on the second Wednesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. Visitors are welcome.
Stitch-ins are held in area homes and shops each Thursday and on the last Saturday of each month, a stitch-in is held at the Perrysburg Way Library.
Gary Clark of Australia will be conducting a class for the guild later this fall.
In 2014, Catherine Jordan of Virginia will have a three-day class on dyeing and then stitching a three-dimensional tree on your cloth.
The Needle Arts Guild of Toledo sponsored an Ohio State Day in August for Great Lakes Region members. It was taught by Marylyn Doyle, formerly of Grand Rapids, and Jane Ellen Balzuwait from Dayton.
Learning and perpetuating this art form is the purpose of the Embroiderers Guild. The Embroiderers Guild of America (EGA) was founded in 1958 in New York and has grown to 296 chapters and one cyber chapter.
