March Newsletter

Bee Happy!!!!

We’ve had a lot going on around the shop the last few months, both personally and professionally.  Linda has spruced up the shop with the most amazing display to cheer us up.  And we could all use that during the doldrums of winter.  This is her best display yet!  Stop by in person to see the blinking bee lights on the wreath.  It’s fabulous!
March Trunk Shows!!!!
We’re so excited for these trunk shows!
All trunk show canvases are 20% off
All special orders from these designers are 20% off during the trunk show.
So many fun designs!

The Spring Needlepoint Show
I have been busy painting over 50 new designs for the show.  I can’t wait to show you what I’ve painted and what I’ve been stitching.  It’s so hard keeping it a secret!
Here’s one sneak peek for you. I can’t wait to stitch this!
The wait is almost over.  Be sure to subscribe to the blog so you can see the posts of all the new designs and stitched pieces the last weekend in March.
New Thread Line – Essentials
Planet Earth has outdone themselves with this new thread. I have been begging them for years to make something thinner than Pepper Pot.  You ask and you shall receive!
It is a 50/50 of silk and wool and it is divine to work with.  

We have it up on our walls.

Stay tuned for an in depth blog about this new thread.  Let’s just say it’s my new favorite!

Connecticut State Santa
Apparently all my asking is being met with receiving because The Meredith Collection made a Connecticut state Santa ornament for me.

What fun to stitch!  Another new thread in this piece.  I love playing with new threads!

This guide will work for any of the Santa state designs they have done.  We have a limited amount of the holly leaves and red “frosty balls” for kits so don’t wait to order yours.  When they’re gone they’re gone!
Call the shop to order the kit or guide.

Go Red 2019
We have kits in stock and ready to ship if you missed this last month!
A portion of the proceeds of these canvases will be donated to a local Connecticut charity for heart health

 A delightful size!

New Jewelry Boxes
Planet Earth introduced adorable leather jewelry boxes earlier this year.

We’ve got a few new canvases to fit inside them!

The opening on the box is 3 x 3 and these designs are 4 x 4, but can easily be adjusted to fit inside.  Or, the 4 x 4 size fits into our self finishing coasters.
