The BBCAC is pleased to have a wonderful counted cross stitch collection in this month’s showcase, located to the right of the entrance after entering City Hall.

The cross stitch artwork was completed by Catherine Alekna, a late resident of Brigantine. Catherine has perfected this craft in her Christmas collection.

Catherine raised nine children in Glenside, Pa. where she was involved in the Cub Scouts, Women’s Guild, church craft shows, and many more organizations.

When she moved to Brigantine in 1998 with her daughter Ethel, she continued her talents by joining the library's knitting group. There she knitted numerous sweaters, blankets and hats for donation. Most of her retired life was spent designing cross stitch works from a blank canvas, which became beautiful works of art. Her enjoyment has become our treasure as her family and friends can enjoy her work forever.

Please come and experience this very unique display.
