It’s Been a While

Hello dear readers! It’s been forever since I’ve blogged!

I just got back from the most fabulous vacation in Block Island. We spent a week on our boat with family friends on their boats. It was a blast!

I didn’t get nearly as much stitching done as I would have liked on vacation. But then again…vacation is for relaxing and doing nothing.

I did manage to stitch one piece. This ornaments is for my dog, Rosie.

This is a series of designs with dogs on them I created for the Spring Virtual Needlepoint Show a few months ago. There are twelve dogs in the series.

I plan on doing more dog breeds so sit tight if you don’t see your pup!

If you’re looking at this and wondering what all the threads are doing in the selvage, I’ll tell you why.

Since the background is an open stitch, I had nowhere to start and end my threads in the design. I stitched the black last so there was nothing to anchor into. So, I left away knots and pin stitches in the selvage to start and end the threads. My finisher will handle the threads in the selvage when she goes to finish it.

If you don’t follow @enrichedstitch on Instagram, you probably aren’t aware that we have a new in house finisher who can still finish plain ornaments (round, square, rectangular, hearts) in time for the holidays. As of right now, our deadline for these kinds of ornaments is September first so you still have plenty of time to get them in to us!

I can’t wait to get this back from finishing!

I promise to blog more. Time just gets away from me. If you don’t want to miss anything, make sure you follow the shop on Instagram and Facebook. There’s daily posts about all that’s going on in the shop!

Anniversary Sale

I can’t believe it’s been nine years since I opened The Enriched Stitch! What a whirlwind it’s been! Last year we didn’t get to celebrate because that was when the world got locked down. So…to celebrate this year all in stock canvases are 25% off now through Saturday March 20th!

If you’re new to the blog, give me a call or shoot me an email and let us know what frame the canvas you are interested in is in. The frame number is ABOVE the picture. Here we go!

I can’t believe it’s February.  January flew by!

Silly Little Birds Club

This club starts in March.  There are six canvases in total.  4 1/2 inches on 18 mesh.

Click here for all the details.

New York City Holidays Club

These canvases were stitched by the fabulous Elizabeth and Eleanor who are very dear customers of ours.  I thought they did such a fabulous job that I asked them if we could offer them as a club.  Lucky for everyone that they agreed!

Susan Roberts Trunk Show

Susan Roberts is hands down one of my favorite designers!  Her designs are super cute and stitch painted which takes all the guess work out.

There are tons of Christmas stockings in the trunk show.  If you are thinking of stitching one this year, now is the time to start since our recommended “deadline” for holiday finishing is June 30th.  I use “deadline” very loosely since none of the finishers have deadlines this year and are not guaranteeing anything this year. 

This trunk show has everything from florals to Christmas, Judaica, growth charts, nutcrackers, Christmas ornaments, belts, dog collars, baby themed canvases, landscapes and so much more.  Susan has it covered!

Shop the Susan Roberts trunk show!

All trunk show canvases, in stock and special order are 20% off.  The discount will automatically be applied at the checkout.  Class pieces are excluded from the trunk show

 

Needlepoint University

A lot of people have been asking if I am going to offer Needlepoint University again and the answer is YES!  The next semester will start in April.  Registration will open in a few weeks so be sure to keep an eye out for it!

COVID UPDATE

The shop is open for regular business.  We are limiting capacity to three customers at a time.  A mask is required and we have plenty of Purell.  Yes . . .you read that right.  I scored real Purell!

You are welcome to make an appointment but it is not mandatory.

Be sure to subscribe to the blog and our emails to stay up do date of what’s happening in the shop!

 

New York City Holidays Club

When I first saw these canvases I fell in love with them.  I had every intention of stitching them but never got around to it.

We are so lucky that our customers, Elizabeth and Eleanor, stitched them up so cute and wrote guides for them.

The club will start late Spring this year.  There are six canvases in total.  Each one is 3 1/2 inches on 18 mesh.

 

Each kit includes the canvas, stitch guide and threads.

The Rockettes are my favorite!

All of these pieces have such special memories for me, as I’m sure they do for many of you, as well.

You can sign up online or call the shop to sign up.

A huge shout out to Eleanor and Elizabeth!  Thanks for sharing your guides with The Enriched Stitch!

Cupcake Nutcracker

 

I had a BLAST stitching this little cutie pie!  I don’t often stitch something for myself.  Usually I’m stitching for a club or a class piece.  But I just loved this guy and wanted to stitch him without any future plans.  But, there has been such an interest in this piece that I’m offering a Zoom class on March 20th. . . assuming the canvases come in on time.

 

 

There is a TON of beading in this piece.  If you know me at all, I’m not a big fan of beading.  But . . .if I think that’s what should be done then I’ll do it.

I think my favorite part of the piece is the peppermint button on his coat.

 

I love doing felt applique.  (Thank you Kelly Clark for turning me on to it!)  I knew he needed little elf shoes and I think they turned out pretty cute.

 

The cupcake has some fun techniques like gathered stitch with beads on top.  I had these sequins in my stash and they were the perfect size.  Yes . . .more beading but SO worth it!

I’ve got second Nutcracker on bars waiting to go.  I can’t do just one.  Gotta have a pair!

If you want to sign up for the class or purchase the kit you can call the shop or sign up online.

January Newsletter

Things have finally quieted down a bit after the holidays so I have time to blog.  We have a lot going on in the shop so I thought I’d share with you some new kits, new classes and some new items.

I recently got a bunch of finishing back.

This little cutie is my design and can be personalized with your house number.  The best part is that it’s on 13 mesh!

I taught this hydrangea basket on Zoom a few months back.  We still have a few kits and the class was recorded so you didn’t miss out!

I think this fox by Melissa Prince is so sweet.  I will be teaching him on February 27th on Zoom.  You can call the shop to sign up or sign up online.

 

These little acorns from Kelly Clark were a mini club we did back in the fall.  I have the perfect wreath for them!

I stitched a ton between Christmas and New Years while I was enjoying some much needed time off with my family!

This little Eye Candy piece is only 3 x 3 on 18 mesh and fits into a self finishing box.  There are 8 different stitches for you to learn.  Not quite 21 in 2021 but it’s a start!  I will be designing a piece that has 21 different stitches so keep an eye out for that.  We still have a few kits in stock.

I loved this little bunny star so much I bought it twice for myself!  We have kits available for this little cutie.  You can order online or call the shop.

I thought this Santa Star ornament would be a fun class.  There’s a cool stitch for the beard, a little stumpwork for the holly leaves and a thread you probably haven’t worked with before.  This class will be on February 13th.

We have a new club, The Silly Little Birds.  We did this club a few years ago but I thought I’d bring it back for those of you who missed it the first go around.

6 canvases in total
5″ round on 18 mesh
$125/per installment
includes canvas, stitch guide, threads and special embellishments
Club starts March 2021
You can call the shop to sign up or sign up online.
203-210-5107
I will be teaching Beading 101 and Ribbon 101 on February 20th on Zoom.  If you’ve ever wanted to learn about beading and ribbon then these are the classes for you!
A lot of people have been asking about if I will be teaching Needlepoint University again.  The answer is YES!  Registration will open next week for the next session so be sure to keep an eye on your inbox for when early bird registration opens.
I’ve got a number of other pieces that I’m really close to finishing so I will share them with you as soon as they’re done.
Happy Stitching!
Suzie

Year in Review

2020 has been a crazy year filled with tons of stitching.  I meant to post this on New Year’s Eve but I was enjoying some much needed relaxation last week with me family.

I think that’s everything!
