We are a group of individuals who are passionate about needlework and fiber arts of all types. Our skills range from beginner to expert. We are quilters, crocheters, fiber artists, weavers, knitters, needlepointers, beaders, cross-stitchers and more. Our members enjoy workshops, lectures, tours, making projects and needlework challenges throughout the year. Most importantly, we have a camaraderie that makes everything we do fun! Come join us, leave your everyday cares behind you and enjoy learning, laughing, creating and doing it with a group of friends!
Our mission is to heighten the concept of Hiddur Mitzvah in our community and create a visual legacy to hand to the next generation. Members share a common interest in Jewish tradition and the desire to create Judaic needle and fiber projects for family, home, synagogue and other communal institutions.

Special Programs & Workshops
From time to time the Chapter sponsors special programs and workshops that are of interest to our members. These events are usually held on a Sunday and last ½ day (3-4 hours) and have a cost associated with them.
In January 2020 the Chapter sponsored a workshop thanks to generous donations from a former member’s family and friends. The workshop was held in her memory. The class “Textured Collage” was taught by the owners of Fiber on a Whim. This was a members only event with a class size limit along with a partial kit fee.
Our members like to get out and explore the local art community together. Occasionally the Chapter coordinates a field trip outing where members can carpool, receive group rates and enjoy an exhibit or tour together.
