My Early Days from Plum Street Samplers Adam Names the Animals from Plum Street Samplers Bigfoot Bunch from Plum Street Samplers Abominable Bundle from Plum Street Samplers
4 New charts Arriving from Plum Street Samplers' Paulette Stewart
  • My Early Days - Inspired by a sampler Paulette owns, she 'perked up' the blues in her design, because she found that blue enchanting on the original piece. Finishing approx 12 x 12 - pretty generous on 36ct, it has a pretty symetry.
  • Adam Names the Animals - Paulette tells us that Eve is not present on the sampler, as God gave Adam the task of naming the animals before Eve was created. The verse on the sampler alludes to the loneliness Adam still felt after each of the animals had been considered as company. Finishes approx 11 x 8 on 40ct.
  • Bigfoot Bunch & Abominable Bundle - Oh these two are fun! In Bigfoot, can you find Mama and Baby hiding? The Abominable Snowman is from the Christmas Special Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. Remember him in there? Didn't Herbie fix his sore tooth? A little digression from the rest of the animal 'stacks' but that's OK... stitch him and wait for people to loooookkkk... and then timidly ask about!

Wedding at Mermaid Cove
from Praiseworthy Stitches
Oh a wedding on the beach... lots of attendants, a candle-lit church, a visiting whale in the sea, and billowy winds blowing the clouds and waves! Your hand-dyed fabric will be giving the sky its drama, so choose a pretty, happy colored piece... (don't want to start the bride and groom off with stormy skies!)

Susan and Pam always put a lot of cute little motifs in these scenes - this one is no different. Measures 282 x 160 - almost 18 x 12 on 32ct, it features lots of hand-dyed and DMC colors, as well as a little metallic and some glass beads.

Be Kind Sampler from Stacy Nash -- click to see more

Be Kind Sampler
from Stacy Nash Primitives
Be kind to one another, this is a world of care and there is enough of needful woe for every one to bear. An old verse with Stacy's new border design and big house.

Finishes about 8 x 10 - probably 36ct Weeks Cocoa - and it uses Weeks hand-dyed cottons of Oscar, Baked Apple, Battleship, Cherub, Charcoal, Straw, Oilcloth, Confederate Gray and Sanguine.

New Lovelies From La D Da!
  • Elizabeth Charnelay W - Stitched on 36ct, this measures a generous 12-ish inches square. Worked with Weeks flosses of Havana, Dolphin, Terrapin and Red Rocks, there are 8 DMCs tossed in as well.
  • Little Virginie 1837 - Stitched on 36ct, this one finishes approx 10 x 10. There's a windmill in here... a peacock and that cool sailing ship... kind of a 'family established' thing!
  • Kindred Spirits of the Thread - This is a pin cushion for a stitcher! Stitched on 36ct Confederate Gray is calls for Weeks blackboard, Lichen, Caper, Cinnabar and Arrowhead. Easy to change colors though... any stitcher will love to have and use it!
  • Sophia Church - What a pretty piece! On 36ct, it finishes approx 17 x 7, and is stitched with Weeks Dirt Road, Adobe, Terrapin, Sanguine, Oil Cloth, Flat Fish, Bees Knees and a few other DMC flosses. Blackbird Designs has a sampler like this pictured on the back of their Sewing Club book... different pots of flowers, but the same layout. The two would be pretty hung together!
  • Francis 1863 - Well, isn't this the cutest little sampler bunny? Lori has a couple of other stitched and stuffed alphabet rabbits - they are ALL charming! Francis measures 80 x 80 - so on 32ct he's only 5 inches tall. He needs to sit on your shelf in a place of honor! Stitched with Weeks Cranberry Ice, Classic's Calico Kitty, and Gentle Art's Wood Trail and Cast Iron Skillet.

Spring Spring Scamper from Luminous Fiber Arts
Oh my gosh, this is the CUTEST! What a wild ride everyone is enjoying! *It's time for Spring Scamper, the annual race through the tulips to see who is the fastest! The bunny and chick are leaping into the lead, while their friends race to catch up in their carrot-mobile. A chick in a radish plane (that is the best part!) flies overhead towing the race banner while tossing carrots like confetti down on the competitors! What a charming scene!

Presented as a chart, this measures 111 x 266 - so it'll finish approx 7 x 16 on 32ct. Worked with hand-dyeds and lots of DMC, I just love it. You COULD do this on 18ct linen and use #5 Perle Cotton... like the Bent Creek globe kits or the Shepherd's Bush stockings... then finish it into a glorious big couch pillow... it'd measure 12 x 30! (take a ton of thread... but how fun anyway!)
Enjoy several other new designs when you click through!


Springtime My Necessity from Heartstring Samplery My Necessity and Springtime Pin Drum from Heartstring Samplery
Beth Twist from Heartstring Samplery has a couple of new charts ready for release...
  • My Necessity continues her set of big, long band samplers inspired by old music. Lyrics from the old song, she's tucked them in between all sorts of neat stitched borders, so you don't even notice them at first! Choose one hand-dyed color of thread (but you can change that if you want), and a fabric you like. On 36ct this will measure 7 x 13.
  • Springtime Pin Drum - A rotund little stand-up cushion, we can't really see all the sides on this, but I think tulips go all the way around. *Bloesem* is the word I see spelled across the top... maybe the chart mentions something about that inside? It's only 3 x 10 on 36ct, and uses Weeks hand-dyeds of Bluecoat Red, Clockwork, Concord, Curry, Grasshopper, Oscar, Parchment, Red rocks, Sanguine and Teal Frost.

The Gentle Rain from The Blue Flower -  click for more Wildflowers from The Blue Flower -  click for more Language of Flowersfrom The Blue Flower -  click for more Tudor Bee from The Blue Flower -  click for more Tudor Swan from The Blue Flower -  click for more
Jeannine McGowan of The Blue Flower has some pretty new designs:
  • The Gentle Rain - To capture the awesome feeling of the soft, spring rain Jeannine loves, she designed a scene of flowers and trees. She featured a big bird bath with all sorts of delighted birds, and then, there come all the little creatures - squirrels, a racoon, and even a neighborhood dog coming out for his walk! Something pretty to hang in the Springtime! Measures about 9 x 11 on 36ct.
  • Wildflowers - Buttercups have honeyed hearts, Bees they love the clover, but I Iove the daisies dance all the meadow over. Inspired by wildflowers and a favorite poem, we get another pretty springtime piece that a gardening friend might really love. Stitched all in DMC floss, it finishes a little over 9 x 9 on 36ct. Not really too big at all.
  • Language of Flowers - Spring - The sun shines when I'm with You. Fresh blooming Narcissus just make you smile! 165 x 82, It'll finish 8 x 4 - a generous cushion that would be pretty perched on a windowsill.
  • Tudor Bee and Tudor Swan - A pair of coordinating designs, each is finished as a pin cushion. Trims and velveteen backings are by Lady Dot. Jeannine says the Swan's border was inspired by the ceiling at Hampton Court palace, and swans are very common in Tudor art - symbolizing fidelity in love.

A Time for all Seasons Series
from Cottage Garden Samplings
We didn't know there was going to be a set of 12 of these. #1 January's It's Snow Time and #2 February's Love is in the Air are both here! Same stitch count size - 100 x 130 - both are stitched on a medium-ish hand-dyed fabric color - something to highlight the white colors in each.

We have no idea if they'll all be on this same background or not... so maybe just collect patterns till we know? Or just stitch only the ones you like and forget the rest? Charming so far, each is presented in a chart and coded for mostly DMC with a few hand-dyeds tossed in for fun.

Bequeathment Labels from Kathy Barrick - click to see more Colonial Girls & Their Dolls by Kathy Barrick - click to see more Quaker Dwelling by Kathy Barrick - click to see more Amelia Prescott and How Her Parents Did Educate Her by Kathy Barrick - click to see more
Several New Arrivals from Kathy Barrick
  • Bequeathment Labels - DO NOT get creeped out by these... just enjoy the fun they present being stuck to the backs of treasured (and maybe not-so-treasured) pieces of needlework! Actually, you COULD use these as gift tags at your next stitch group exchange or include one in your next event pin-cushion exchange! (Or how about bequeathing your friend your project-from-****? You know, the one they keep bugging you about finishing?) Kathy's latest group of antique art on stickers, set of 8.
  • Colonial Girls & Their Dolls - People get creeped out by this artwork too... but if you can appreciate it, these are neat labels too! A place to record your name, date, the design title, and maybe some thread or fabric info... stick them on the back of your framed pieces.
  • Quaker Dwelling - measuring 232 x 239, this finishes almost 12 x 12 on 40ct! LOTS of stitches in this... the symetry and repetitveness in this is delightful! Change a few colors if you need to... but I love all that gunmetal color in there! I like how the bricks are the same as the Quaker motifs.
  • Amelia Prescott and How Her Parents Did Educate Her - This is a Kathy Barrick original design, inspired by all the charming antique multiplication table samplers. She's done Algerian Eyes and Rhodes in the alphabets, and included that verse about Amelia's Parents! Stitch count is a mystery until I can read the chart... but it will probably be generous in size... and gosh, the math actually STILL works - not like that 'new math stuff!'

Gather Here from Hello From Liz Matthews - click for more Butterfly Cloche from Hello From Liz Matthews - click for more Newest Releases
from Hello From Liz Matthews
  • Butterfly Cloche - What a pretty piece! Measuring 171 x 191, this is stitched on 40ct and measures approx 8-1/2 x 9-1/2. The colors are so yummy... Liz is showing single butterflies attached to the bottoms of antique glass paperweights as a neat finishing idea. DMCs of 937, 732, 3809, 310, 413, 3866, 927, 829, 839, 3826, 680, 918 and blanc.
  • Gather Here - I love this one! Stitched in just one hand-dyed thread color (pick one you like!), this finishes a generous 15-1/2 x 7 on 36ct! Clean and contemporary!

Colorful - use what's in your stash, or the hand-dyeds called for of Oyster, Mulberry, Boysenberry, Kentucky Bluegrass, Lichen, Romance and Plum, or as Tracy puts it - 'the DMC-ish' equivalents!

  • The Rabbits Rabbits! Tracy is doing a 12-part Rabbit Sampler. We have rabbits for January, February and March so far... each comes as a single card chart. (The other 9 months will release 3 at a time throughout the year.) Stitched on 36ct, with hand-dyed flosses, they measure about 3-1/2 inches in size. When you get the charts, the links are there for the freebie borders on her site, as well as thread usage and conversion charts so you can stitch these anyway you like. There is a Lady Dot Creates finishing pack available for these... one packet for each group of three months of cushions. (I'll post info on that ASAP.) Meanwhile, we'll do an auto-ship on the charts beginning with these three.

Livia is including the striped finishing fabric you see, and a bunch of cute seaside charms that are dangling there off the cushion.

UPDATE: I've just heard the two wood tools supplied are one seam ripper and one frogger.
LIMITED EDITION, we are taking RESERVATIONS for Mid-March delivery!
Flowershop from Thistles Merry X-Mas Welcome from Thistles Hilltop Village in Winter from Thistles
Thistles has fun new designs coming our way in early March!
Liezbeth is from the Netherlands...and when we took our Silver Needle/Jeannette Douglas Tulip Time River Cruise to Holland two years ago... she met our group of 90 stitchers for a day with a huge trunk show of her things. It was delightful... and a neat memory.
  • Flowershop comes straight from her imagination! Stitched with 23 different shades of Weeks hand-dyed flosses, I'm not sure how large it is... but I think about 8 x 15. I see three panels here... the little shop and all it's gardens of flowers and trees. It's so happy, I just love it!
  • Merry X-Mas Welcome - Oh, there are pigs-in-love for Valentines and a black cat on Halloween that go with this - isn't this plump gingerbread cottage the cutest? Hansel and Gretel live there! It measures about 5 x 9 in size, I think, and is stitched in Gentle Art's Simply Wools of Tea Rose, Raven, Harvest Basket, Buttercrunch, Ruby Slippers, Cidermill Brown, Chives, Morning Glory, and Chalk.
  • Hilltop Village in Winter - This finishes Liezbeth's 4-season set... she traveled in southern Italy in 2019... and loved all the old villages on the hilltops and mountains. So we get smidgens of European villages all throughout the year. Finishing about 6 x 8... all of them are delightful!

Marie Driskill has been busy designing gingerbread house ornaments! You see three pics here... Part One is both the front and back of the same house! Part Two is her second house-in-progress - and you are seeing only the front of it so far.
So... Part One is stitched on 32ct Gingerbread Linen by Picture This Plus. It measures approx 4 x 4, and is FULL of charming design detail! The chimney is a cupcake... and can you see the elf climbing on the roof? On the front side, you can see him just to the right of the cupcake - I think he's sneaking a snack. The front is decorated with a clay wreath on the door, tiny gingerbread cookies, and snowy evergreen tree buttons - all are made by Just Another Button Company and Puntini. Now, look at the back of the house... there's the little guy on the roof again! There are more buttons here... Puntini packages and JABCO peppermints! Both the front and back of the house are in this chart, and the buttons will do both sides.

Part Two's house (not real creative names for our cottages I am afraid!) is an A-Frame gingerbread house. Marie is still working on the backside of that house... so it's still a surprise. BOTH front and back of this house will also be in this chart! Buttons are available separately... and we have them. (Not enough info about Part Two selection yet.)

Antrim's Folly from Hearts Ease Examplar Workes - click to see more

Antrim's Folly
by Heart's Ease Examplar Workes
This has been one of Theresa Baird's exclusive class pieces that is now available in chart format. Just a gorgeous piece, Theresa's inspiration came from a Betty Ring sampler that sold at a Sotheby's auction for over a million dollars in 2012.

She was enchanted by the mansion with the cedar trees, the barnyard with the animals, the young lady sitting straight and proud atop a horse, the farmhouse on the hill, and the flanking baskets of fruits and flowers.

It measures 257 x 355, and is worked in silks. The chart is 38 pages... it is full of stitch diagram detail, and actual close-up pics of some areas. Not for the faint of stitcher - not the quickest stitch either! Just an EXQUISITE needlework design to tantalize the brave!
Spring is Springing from Val's Stuff Please Grow from Val's Stuff
Please Grow and Spring is Springing from Val's Stuff
Two new arrivals by Val's stuff... they hint at Spring, but after this last February weather... who knows?
  • Please Grow is a plant poke! Delightful colors, it is stitched on 14ct perforated paper with DMC flosses from your stash. Then, you decorate with felt flower pieces, and the button. Cut it out, glue it to the black felt, then glue that to the pink felt, add the wooden skewer stick and you're ready to beg that plant to grow (using your good manners!) Complete kit includes the chart, paper, embellishments, felt and stick to make the 4 x 4 poke.
  • Spring is Springing features a snowman who's going to melt soon. You don't actually stitch him - that's the background fabric... and the flower on there consists of tiny felt pieces... so actually, this goes pretty fast! Kit comes with the chart, 28ct Jobelan fabric, and pink felt pieces. You'll need bits of Week's hand-dyed floss from your stash - Chartreuse, Watermelon Punch, Envy and Pumpkin!

Teresa Kogut has New Punch Needle and Cross Stitch Designs
  • Brahma Mama is a glorious hen in her summer garden. She finishes approx 5-1/2 x 6, and is punched using Weeks Dye Works hand-dyed flosses... or DMC. The pattern includes the line drawing for transferring and the needed cut of weaver's cloth base fabric.
  • Our Humble Homestead - We like this! It reminds us all of the first small-ish houses we all lived in when we first married - because the people are as big as the house! That first house was a HUGE CASTLE, regardless! This finishes about 6 x 9-1/2 on 36ct - you can put it on anything you want - the model pic is Picture This Plus's Ale color.
  • You Are Worthy - Good encouragement... this finishes approx 7 x 8 on 32ct fabric. The linen in the model pic is quite distressed, but if you don't like that look at least use something on the darker side of colors so the beige whites will show up nicely.

Presenting the Music in America Series from Ronnie Rowe
Wow... these are definitely for the serious music lover - and a serious stitcher! Ronnie Rowe is a really fun guy. I'd heard about his stuff for years... I didn't know he was a 'real person' until he showed up at market for the first time a couple of years ago! The man is eternally cheerful and assured me he was, indeed, alive! Completely talented - he sketches out all this stuff and then stitches it and charts it! Absolutely unbelievable in detail and vision, his designs will remain classics. His covers really don't do justice to the stitched pieces.

New this year are these 5 tributes to music. Each is presented as a chart and coded for just plain 'ol DMC floss. His style is to mimic pen and ink - these are so exciting, so realistic. They'd be lovely in a music room, recording studio, office, school... anywhere someone can appreciate them. They are generous in size - all around 12 x 17 (180 x 270 or 300 in stitch count) - so visually commanding!

The Mill Hill white metal snowflake treasures are perfect for this - you get 2 each of two different 1/2-inch white enameled metal flakes for $3.50.

Winter Mouse Scissor Roll featuring Freezia Mouse by Just Nan -- click to see more! Presenting Just Nan's Winter Mouse Scissor Roll - featuring Freezia Mouse!
Nan's Winter Roll is due in the shop January 25th, 2021. The 4th in her seasonal set of these charming scissor cases... each has been the same size - perfect to store a 3-1/2 or 4-inch pair of embroidery scissors. They each feature one of Nan's signature mice perched atop as well! She writes: each of the mouse garden scenes on the outside features a mouse and a moment in a winter garden. Look for a cardinal at a feeder with icicles overhead, a mouse in an evergreen tree behind a wooly sheep (but he's not wearing his boots!), a very happy snowman welcoming snowflakes and a mouse peeking out of a green wreath on the blue front door. Snowflakes separate the scenes - which are grounded with snowy patterns of blue and white. The scenes are embellished with icy blue beads... and a single pearl marks the roll closure.

Next, three little helper mice push their way through the snow to a little warm house - which is the padded pocket for the scissors! Find a 4th mouse inspecting a pincushion and spools of thread in the sewing room window! The verse inside, It's cold outside, scissors stay inside! I don't know how Nan gets all that detail on her things, but all that is happening in this charming piece. You stitch this as one long piece on 32ct natural Belfast Linen with DMC floss. You form the scissor pocket with the overdyed wool included in the design, sew on a snap - and you're finished. The four mouse scenes will show on the outside of the roll... and the path to the little warm cottage will be rolled up inside. Then, top it all with Freezia! She's on 32ct white, is wearing a dress of beaded snowflakes, and a matching set of mittens and scarf. Chart includes the 8-page stitch guide, overdyed Snow Creme wool, wired string tail, signature mouse button base, mini pom pom, beads, pearl, snap and snowflake sequins.

I don't know what that title means, but it doesn't matter - I can tell this is a charming design! The mom and dad rabbits are working in the garden, but the little helper is fast asleep on the huge carrot they've gathered already!

Offered as the small individual card, there are snap embellishments included for the each design. As with Spring and Winter Snapperland, Bent Creek has designed a really neat border chart, so that you can stitch all four designs in this mini-set as one bigger design. That border design reads, 'Turn your face to the sun, and the shadows fall behind you.' Along with the sunshine and shells, there are seahorses in the border design as well, and the special embellishment package contains more snaps, clay sand dollars and a sea scallop.

Stitched on 32ct Rue Green Belfast Linen... each design finishes approx 3 x 3. Stitched together with the freebie border, the entire piece finishes approx 5 x 15. SOOO cute!

Let Freedom Ring from Lila's Studio
Let Freedom Ring from Lila's Studio
This is a beautiful piece that will finish an impressive 15 x 19 on 32ct. Released in 2017... we've had it, but I didn't pay attention to it until recently. Just lovely, Independence Hall is so pretty with the trees in the background. All the windows, the arches, the hand-dyed threads making the bricks look real... the billowing flag and cracked Liberty Bell... this piece makes quite a statement!

25 Shades of DMC along with 6 hand-dyeds... the building is Classic Colorworks Calico Kitty, and the trees are Endive, both of which require 4 skeins of thread. Lila has done an excellent job with the chart - it's huge, full of contrast and has symbols next to each other that are EASY to tell apart. Just whip this right up - it'd look great in the Family room or an office!

A Perrenial Favorite of Ours... And a Forest Grew from Rosewood Manor
Ok... pull out your DMC floss... this awesome piece uses no less than 100 of them!!! Every green you can imagine... lots of chestnuts, butterscotch, and terra cotta earth tones, this sampler is delightful to look at! Karen, the designer, says she was researching trees for samplers, and found so many different ones... that 'A Forest Grew!' Filled with so many charming details of tiny forest wildlife, and delicate, lacy trees, you just keep looking at this and finding something new all the time.

Stitched on 32ct Cream Belfast Linen, this finishes an impressive 26 x 12-1/2. There are several ideas and smaller charts included to help you pull out little bits here and there, to add to a needle case somewhere, or create some bands for another sampler. So different, such pretty balance with the sizes, colors and detail! Offered as a leaflet.

Need floss? Check your stash first! Need Linen? On 32ct... you'll need 19 x 32. On 28ct ... you'll need 20 x 36. We can provide you those cuts, or 'Fat Half Yards' which measure 27 x 36... giving you enough extra linen for a couple of ornaments, pin cushions or needlecases -- in a matching fabric dye lot. Study the pattern and then decide!

Stitched with Classic Colorworks or DMC floss, what a cute Wintery decoration. The verse comes from the original story book, we just love it all! You'll need multiple skeins (20 total) of the hand-dyed flosses, so get it all at once so dye lots match.

Portuguese Bird Sampler
from Barbara Ana
Love, Love the colors in this! *Tell me ye knowing and discerning few, where I may find a friend both firm and true. Who dares stand by me when in deep distress and then his love and friendship most express.*

Quite large, the stitch count on this is 275 x 335 -- so it finishes almost 14 x 16 on 40ct, and would be 17 x 21 on 32. I guess you could leave off a band or two, but everything is so pretty on here, I don't know what you'd want to leave off!!! Fun to add Satins on the border acorns... you could always do Rice Stitches for the lettering. Charted for regular stitches with 22 shades of regular DMC floss, on white.

    Brenda Keyes has reprinted her wonderful multi-page book that is CRAMMED FULL of alphabets and different motifs that appear in antique samplers! Out of print for several years, it is just an awesome book, and we are thrilled to be able to have it again. A MUST for your library... you can tell by the cover what treats await inside!

  • Abigail Markam Sampler - Here is a pretty sampler -- very bold and organized -- balanced and stately! Presented as a chart, this measures 205 x 155 -- so finishes just 9-1/2 x 13 on 32ct. If you choose smaller fabric, you can make your finished piece smaller as well.
    Charted for ONLY regular DMC floss of black, two shades of green, two shades of gold and a brown and red, you could easily change some of the colors to hand-dyeds if you wanted to. The border is pretty, alphabet is good, and the house is very eye-catching. It would make a wonderful *family established* piece!

What a delightful collection of paper ornaments these are! Designed by Jim Shore, each is presented as a complete kit of 14ct perforated paper with all the necessary DMC flosses and a few Mill Hill glass beads tossed in for sparkle. They finish about 3-1/2 to 4 inches high.

Really no finishing required... we put sticky felt on the backs of ours... then cut them out with cheap scissors (cause the felt is a sticky mess on the blades), and that's it. You could attach a little paper easel on the backs to make them stand-up if you like. Quite a collection of these Santas, snowmen, angels and penquins so far from Jim Shore by Mill Hill!

from Twin Peak Primitives
This is quite the piece by Twin Peaks (all the way from The Netherlands!) Stitched on 36ct (329 x 310), it'll finish approx 18 x 18 - you won't lose THIS on the wall! The pattern refers to Rustico Aida, but also Picture This Plus's Wren color... so those should give you an idea of fabric choices.

It is coded for DMC or Weeks hand-dyed flosses - 18 different shades. It's really very pretty, and I especially like the big floral pots up by the words. (Do one of those if you haven't got time to stitch this whole thing!) And we love those billowing flags too!

Cute Variety by Susanamm Cross Stitch!
All of her designs are funky... and generally heavy on the stitch count. They are big, lots of solid worked areas, and they'll use tons of your DMC! Sometimes the charts are intense because they are so much solid stitching... but a lot of needleworkers really like that!
  • Infant Book #1 - This is a set of colorful motifs to arrange however you want. The animals along the top row are larger - 100 x 75-ish in stitch count - so they would make darling single pillows or bedroom door signs - something like that. The little birds and mushrooms are 40 and 60 in count... just cute and fun.
  • Happy is just that! Focus on the chickens - not the blue background - you can stitch these on any color fabric you want! They are 161 x 172.
  • The Skull - Oh my gosh, I think this is so cute! But, but, I think I would skip the pumpkin because the chart makes my head spin! (It's solid and about 80 x 80 stitches of 349, 606, 646, 720, 817 and 922 - it's a whopper!) The skeleton is so darn cute, and the whole thing uses only 9 shades of DMC... just super fun... so get out that floss!

The lights adjust from warm white (closer to incandescent) to bright white (daylight balanced). It's a nice lamp. Bulbs are covered, nothing funny sticking out anywhere - very clean and sleek. We'd ordered them before everything shut down in February - sold them, and couldn't get more right away... but they are here now, and we are thrilled! Might be time for a new light in your stitching area!!!

This is our big, luscious affair we hold every year! 2-1/2 days of classes by our guest designers and two additional days of stitching lounges. Both Teresa Kogut and Blue Flowers' Jeannine McGowan will present lovely class-exclusive projects to us; you will get all the projects from both ladies - both days - during the weekend.

Thursday evening we celebrate beginning with Happy Hour, then dinner, with a fun, low-key evening presentation and project by both Teresa and Jeannine. Friday and Saturday are the class days - 9 to 4 - lunches included.

Our event seems to start earlier and earlier every year... we now have a wonderful stitching room attached to the shop... so if you come a day or two early, (like Monday or Tuesday!) we have stitching space for you! The official Stitching Event space opens Wednesday noon.

Magic By Mona offers two half-day classes - focused on finishing techniques. $55 each, or both for $100. You'll have stitching homework before-hand... but Mona suggests various materials you already have in your stash, so hopefully you need to buy nothing else! The designs' charts as well as the 'ingredients needed' lists for the projects will be sent around March 10th. Her class goal is to help you navigate different finishing treatments, so that you gain confidence to finish your own projects (she always adds: 'in the privacy of your own home! :)'
  • Wednesday afternoon's class features a cute elf project involving wood, a layered hanger assembly technique, and a little hoop-dressing project. She did a 3-D snow-globe ornament treatment last year that is being re-presented as a requested treat!
  • Thursday's class will feature a 3-piece sewing set including a little drum, thread ring and of course a coordinating and totally charming needlebook... all contained in a little storage tray.
These classes always fill... so think it over, and register sooner vs later!

Registration is open now. Call 888-543-7004. For lots more information on this fabulous weekend, download our full information pdf here.
