Audio/Visual Library

A slide and video collection is continually being gathered and catalogued for the use of members. This collection shows examples of various techniques of stitchery, exhibits, private collections, as well as members' work. Donations of slides are welcome. Members and chapters are encouraged to submit slides, with commentaries, which would be of interest to the general membership.
