COLOR CHALLENGE – NAME TAGSEarlier this year members accepted a Color Challenge.  Each person selected 3 crayons from a bag to use in her name tag.  It was okay to swap one of the colors chosen for another but only one. The name tag pattern was “Say It Loud and Proud” designed and stitched by Emily Caneer.  Caneer’s version graced the September 2013 cover of NEEDLE POINTERS.
