Lynn Harrison of Brookfield, a part-time assistant at Edith Wheeler Memorial Library, has created embroideries that are among a cabinet display by the library entrance. The display, which will be featured until the end of March, holds the works of the Friends of Counted Embroidery Laurel Chapter.
The group meets the second Thursday of each month at Christ the King Lutheran Church, 85 Mount Pleasant Road in Newtown, and Harrison said there is always a project to do. Oftentimes, there is also a guest instructor who teaches new techniques.
Harrison has been a Friends of Counted Embroidery member for around 22 years.
"I love being with all the women who have so much talent and I learn something everytime we meet," Harrison said Tuesday.
There are 30 women in the chapter, which is looking for new members, according to Harrison.
"You don't have to be an expert stitcher to do it, because you learn along the way," Harrison said. "And you can become an excellent stitcher. It's great to see people learning."
Women follow designs from books and some create their own designs.
Members pay an annual due of $30. For information, call Beverly Robertson at 203-775-5949 or Lynn Harrison at 203-775-5035.
