Orenco Originals for the Artful Needleworker !

We are starting a page to keep our fellow needleworkers aware of in-person and online stitching events. We Need your help.  So, if you know of a Stitch-A-Long, (SAL) which is an online stitching event where everyone stitches the same pattern/design over a series of weeks or months, retreat or other community stitching news, please let us know so that we can share that information to other stitchers.

Here is the link to email us Thank you!
