Pine Needlers

Latest News

The Pine Needlers are a group of ladies who meet weekly to share their passion and to exchange ideas and techniques in all areas of needle art. Our members have varied talents – hand and machine sew, cross-stitch, knit, crochet, quilt, and embroider – just about anything crafty.

Over the past few months, some of the ladies have been working on handwork including knitting, needlework, and others are sewing quilts. Lately, there has been a lot of interest in knitting and a group of 12 have been taking knitting classes at Auburn Needleworks. Carol Hunter has been diligently making Bucilla felt Christmas stockings and to date has made six (pictured below).

Recently, a “Newcomers Welcome Social” was held at the Clubhouse and a few of the Pine Needlers were there to represent our group. We had a beautiful display of some of the work our ladies have made. Lots of residents stopped by and were in awe of our crafts.

The Pine Needlers meet at the Yacht Lounge on the first and third Tuesdays from 11:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.to work on our hand projects or sew with our machines, and sometimes have classes. We also meet at rotating members’ homes on the second and fourth Tuesday afternoons throughout the year.

We are also excited that our group is experiencing growth of new members. To accommodate this growth, we have added a second group for new members. They meet on Thursdays from 11:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. at the Yacht Lounge or at members’ homes. If you are interested in knowing more about our group, please contact Gwen Tillisch at 728-3048.
