Marching On

Pins & Orts by Heartstring Samplery

Hello, March!  Our March meeting was a general stitch-in where everyone could work on whatever their heart desired.  For those that will be taking the Orts & Pins workshop from Beth Twist of Heartstring Samplery in May, our Workshop Chair passed out the kits for the pre-stitching.  It’s a sweet little piece, don’t you think?
