October Newsletter

Where did September go?  I looked at the calendar the other day and couldn’t believe it was almost October.  Now here it is!
Market Fresh
We’re back from Dallas and FINALLY recovered from the show.  We have hundreds of new canvases in the shop, tons of magnets and new accessories and some new self finishing items.
The last few weeks have been a whirlwind!
Whatever shall I paint for the next show?  Time to start designing!
 Breast Cancer Fundraiser and Stitch In
Join us on October 20th to raise money for “Paint the Town Pink” to benefit Stamford Hospital.
  Suzie will be offering instruction all day for all participants.  You can either bring a canvas that has something pink in the design to stitch or you can purchase the Breast Cancer Awareness heart from Vallerie Needlepoint Gallery.
Suzie will help you “decorate” your bra. . .


. . .you can stitch it just the way she did.
A portion of the proceeds of the “Pink Boob” canvas (as it has come to be called) will be donated to “Paint the Town Pink.”  Kits are available for those who cannot attend.
A $50 registration fee is required to sign up and will be donated to “Paint the Town Pink”
The Boxes are Back!!!!!
Remember the beautiful lacquer boxes that Amanda Lawford used to carry?  They’re back!

They come in 6 colors

And of course . . .black

I have a limited amount of them and they took six months for me to get!  They make the most beautiful gift and you can have them finished for the holidays.
All the custom boxes have a 5 x 5 opening, which can fit that size canvas or a 4 x 4 with a matte or a border added to it.  
You can call the shop to order or order them in the online store.  Just click on the color you want and it will take you right to it.
How fabulous will my new lovebirds design look in the hot pink box?
