A Hanging?

We have had a hanging in the shop today.  What????  have those girls gone crazy?  Well.......................

Gloria brought in her framed piece by designer Jardin Prive called the ABC de la Brodeuse.  It is absolutely beautiful.  These designs are simple but elegant and are fun to do as you stitch small motifs at a time.  Come and check out these designs.

Cross Stitch Nation

This is book week here at the shop.  Our new book order arrived and in it is this cute chart called Cross Stitch Nation by Heartstring Samplery.  Our goal is to get as many new people stitching as we can because we know there are so many benefits people receive while doing this craft.  Socially, we meet many new friends who share our love of stitching, and mentally we receive a freedom of spirit as we relax and unwind at the end of a busy day.  A few stitches made in a day can settle the nerves and refocus our minds.  Come and join us to create a Cross Stitch Nation.

Spring Smalls

The last new chart from Lizzie Kate arrived this week.  It was bittersweet as we will miss receiving the new items box in the mail.  This design is Spring Smalls, 4 little pillows with spring designs.  They are quick to stitch and would make cute pin cushions.
Just a reminder that Linda and Alan are retiring.  We  will be able to sell their charts as long as the suppliers still have charts in stock.  Once the charts are gone they will not be reprinted.
