Summer Stitching

It’s been sweltering here in Connecticut over the last few days. Not unexpected since it’s July. I don’t know about you, but I love to stitch in season. I rarely get to do it since I’m always stitching something for an upcoming class or a new model for a show so I usually stitch autumn in the Spring or Winter in the Summer.

But I’ve been taking a little time to stitch something for myself, which is rare. So I picked out a new piece from the Cooper Oaks trunk show that I just fell in love with.

I’ve stitched a few Cooper Oaks pieces over the years.

This is one of the first pieces I ever stitched.

This one I branched our with a background stitch for the sky.

I can’t wait to get started on the flowers. There’s gonna be a ton of ribbon so I can make all sorts of pretty flowers.

But, I have to trudge through finishing up the sand first. Good thing I’ve got something good to binge watch.

The Cooper Oaks trunk show is in the shop through Saturday and then it has to head back. So, if you’re looking for a summery piece to stitch, now’s the time! All trunk show canvases are 20% off and if we kit it for you the threads are 10% off.

I just love summer…don’t you?

Little Blue Flowers

Sometimes you just need a quick, happy stitch and this piece was it for me!

If you know me at all, you know how much I love hydrangeas.

I used some really cool overdye ribbon from Treenway Silks to create the flowers.  There’s three different techniques in this piece so that the individual blooms are distinguishable.  I just love working with ribbon.  I can’t wait to show you the next piece from Cooper Oaks that I’m working on!

This is our newest online class which will be on August 5th 1-2:30

You can order your kit online or by calling the shop! 203-210-5107

The canvas is a 4 inch round on 18 mesh.  Perfect travel stitching!

Rebecca Stocking Toppers and Nativities

As promised, here are the stocking toppers we received in the trunk show.  Next to come . . .the full size stockings!

I love stocking toppers because it is so much less stitching!  You stitch the top part and the stocking is made of fabric.  Genius!

I don’t know about you, but I’ve got a thing for nativities.  I must have 8 different nativity sets in my stash.  I have actually finished one set and am 3/4 of the way through a second set. I just love them!

All of these canvases are 20% off now through the end of the month.  If there’s something from Rebecca you want but don’t see featured, all her designs receive the trunk show discount!

Rebecca Wood Trunk Show

We’re so excited to be hosting the Rebecca Wood trunk show in the shop.  It is actually here and you can come in and see it.  Not a virtual show.  So we actually have the inventory!

If you’re in the market for a Christmas stocking, then this is the trunk show for you!  I’ll post pics of the stockings in a follow up blog to this one.  Here are all the ornaments we received in the trunk show.

All trunk show canvases are 20% and as with all our trunk shows, the threads are 10% off if we kit up a piece for you.

 

Love the big Christmas scene!  Anyone want to stitch that for me? LOL!

This little cutie is brand new.  Rebecca just posted it a few days ago.  I think this is my favorite canvas for 2020.

Give us a call or shoot an email to enrichedstitch@gmail.com for more info or to order!

JOY Zoom Class

We’re getting back to normal here at The Enriched Stitch . . .as normal as can be right now.  I’m not sure who’s more excited to be back in the shop.  . .our customers or us!

One thing I keep hearing from everyone is that they can’t wait until we can have classes again.  I don’t think that’s happening any time soon here in Connecticut.  We’ll have to wait to see what our governor says.

So, in the meantime, I’ve got a great class planned for Zoom.

This 4 x 8 design on 13 mesh is so much fun to stitch.  I can’t take credit for the picture above.  Don Lynch of Associated Talents stitched that one.  Mine is almost done.  I just have to finish some beading (my favorite NOT!) and then I’ll be done.

The kits are ready to go. Finally! It’s taking forever to get everything in these days.  So, now I can set a class date.  We’ll meet on June 24th at 1 pm EST. This will give plenty of time to get your kits to you since the mail has been so slow lately.

The kit includes the canvas, threads and beads and a free stitch guide by Don Lynch.  The class fee is $25 which is not included in the kit fee. There’s really cool beading and embellishment techniques in the piece and a variety of stitches.  I can wait to be done so I can send it off to the finisher to make into a really fun pillow.

You can sign up by calling the shop or sign up online.  We have 6 kits in stock so don’t wait too long!

Hope you’ll join in the fun!
