1793 SAMPLER STITCHED BOUGHT...

by Winterthur Museum.  It was stitched by an 8 year old black girl.  If you like samplers, check out the link below about the sampler.  Quite interesting.

COMPLIMENTARY CHART

Here's a free chart from Classic Colorworks....free that is with the purchase of the threads to stitch the piece.  We've just ordered in the kits and they should be shipped today.  Holiday mail is definitely slowing down the post office, but I would think they should be here by Wednesday or Thursday.

Reserve your copy now, pick it up next week and start stitching this cute Christmas pic or pillow.

SPRING STITCH

In January we will start our first round of FIRST FRIDAY STITCHING.... THE SPRING STITCH CLUB.  The club starts on Friday January 2.

We meet on the first Friday of the month from 7-9pm and stitch a project that has something to do with one of the first 5 months of the year.  You could stitch Valentine, Patriotic, Easter, St. Patrick's Day, snowmen, flowers...anything that happens in the first 5 months.  (Later in June, we'll switch to our Halloween Stitch.)  The cost is $25.00 for the 5 months.  If you don't think you can dedicate the First Friday of each month, you could 'visit' us when possible and pay $5.00 for each night you come.

Sign up today, before you get too busy with the Holiday preparations.  Call and reserve a seat.  You don't want to miss out on all the fun we have on this special night!

WINTER WEATHER

You all know the little chat we are going to have.  I hate winter weather and the older I get the more it 'shakes' me up.  I don't want to take a foot outside when it's around.

So, if the weather is questionable, please give the shop a call and make sure I'm here.  Some times I'll arrive late or leave early and I don't want you to make a needless trip and have you upset at me because I'm not at the shop.                        Shop number is 215.513.9373

SLEDGS AND TAGS

Have you seen the charts you can stitch a design on perforated paper and add the design to a mini sled ornament?  They are really cute.  There are about 10 different charts for the cute sleds.  However, somebody 'goofed' and there are no more  sleds available till Spring of 2015.  So here we sit with all these designs to stitch and no where to put them....or is there a place?  Well there is!

Take a design  for the sleds and stitch it or stitch a name.   Take a tag....change up the brown tie to a red and white peppermint twist tie....add the stitched design or name and, voila, you've got a gift tag that can be used as an ornament.  Stitch designs, names, dates, anything you want and create a cute tag/ornament. We have the tags available and they  are inexpensive.  The peppermint ties are available by the yard.  Stop in and check them out!!
