It Sure Was An Adventure

Once there was a store, with friends far and wide,
That was invited to go on the road,
So they packed their wares in a great big truck,
It was an impressive large, heavy load.

Thread, thread, thread

The walls left behind, were a little bit sad,
And we’re sorry to those caught off guard,
By the shock of seeing the needlepoint gone,
When their day of shopping was marred.

We arrived at the show, and the hard work began,
To set up for our new friends to shop,
Their kindness and praise made it all worthwhile,
And the next three days went by non-stop.


All set up                        Reward after all that work

Now we are home and somewhat recovered,
Still unpacking and setting things straight,
We are looking forward to what comes up next,
So keep checking in, it’ll be worth the wait.



A Blog Away From Home

Hello from Baton Rouge.  Your favorite needlepoint shop was invited to the South Central Region of the Embroiders’ Guild of America’s 2014 Seminar to be their boutique.  So we packed up the needlepoint half of the shop and trucked it over.  It’s been an adventure and we will be quite exhausted, I’m sure, when we head back home on Saturday… Hopefully much lighter than before.

A very special thank you to Aubrey and Sarah who have been handling the shop while Meg, Leona, Georgie and Deanne have been away.

Ooohhh! How Exciting!!!

Currently in the shop…

Melissa Shirley Trunk Show
Melissa Shirley Trunk Show…A huge variety to choose from.


These awesome canvases will be in the shop for the rest of this week.  Then we will take them to Baton Rouge next week and they will back in the shop from June 17- June 21.


Speaking of Baton Rouge… in case you haven’t heard, we are taking the needlepoint half of the shop to the Louisiana Lagniappe Chapter of the EGA next week.  Don’t worry, yarnies, you can still come in to get something great for that new project or to strengthen your stash.


And as if a Melissa Shirley Trunk show wasn’t enough, the Jude Trunk Show starts on June 17.
