Don’t Miss a Thing!
September was a crazy month at The Enriched Stitch.  Mary Susan, Aggie and I traveled to Dallas for the Destination Dallas trade show.  We found so many great new canvases, bags, tools and other goodies.
The big news last month was that I bought Amanda Lawford/DC Designs!  I’ve been sorting through and replenishing the inventory and making sense of this massive design line.  Things are finally under control and I can come up for air.  For now  . . .LOL!
I have a lot of plans for these designs.  Some of those ideas will come to fruition at the January show.  Can you believe I’m already thinking about January?  The life of a needlepoint designer and stitcher!
I’m working on getting Amanda’s website updated with the new designs, but here they are!

World Traveler Santa

available in 30″ on 18 or 13 mesh and 20″ on 18 mesh

World Peace – available on 13 or 18 mesh

This is her last design. How appropriate!

You can check out Amanda’s full line on her website
Go Red with Thread 2018

The three canvases for our fundraiser next year are stitched and available for you to order! All three canvases have stitch guides and thread kits.  A portion of the proceeds of these designs will be donated to hurricane relief charities this year.
