Heads Up Needlepointers!!

First off, let me get the finishing deadlines out of the way.

Easter deadline: February 3rd

Halloween: August 1st

Thanksgiving: August 18th

Christmas: August 25th.  This is usually our busiest and most popular theme, so please be sure to get your finishing in to us before this date.


Now on to the fun stuff!

We’re doing a Christmas Train Needlepoint Stitch-A-Long! Starting March 1st. Call and let us know  before February 5th so we can special order your canvas.  They all come with stitch guides.  All you need is to purchase your threads from us.   First to stitch will be the Engine.

Next up! Emiliana Shawl KAL is coming along fabulously!  We’ve had a huge response to this project and so far two have brought in their finished shawls for us to show off.  Congratulations to Ramona Wong and Renee’ Wajdowicz!!

We’re well on our way for the February KAL.  ‘Truly Yours Summer’ Shawl.  Michelle’s favorite colors came in from Malabrigo. You don’t have to choose her colors as we have a wide variety to choose from if you want to come in and pick out your own.

Also, ChiaoGoo and Knitter’s Pride needle re-stocks. Blocking Mats and Swifts have hit the store as well so pop over and check it all out!



Week of Jan 16th

We’re going to be one of the shops participating in this great KAL!  If you’re interested, please sign up on their site http://www.cascadeyarns.com/  to receive the free pattern blocks.  Then let us know if you want the color palate they chose, or if you want to pick your own.  If you want to pick you own colors, we can help! Just go to  http://www.cascadeyarns.com/cascade-220Superwash.htm   write down the color numbers you want and we’ll make sure you get it!  Each project requires 23 balls. You can buy as you go or buy the whole kit at once. 

On another note, we’ve got new colors of Malabrigo in!! Turner, Solis, Fresco Y Seco and Pearl.  Due in this week will be Ochre, Marte.  These colors will be a part of our new Febuary KAL – Truly Yours Summer Shawl by Michele C Meadow.  This is a 3 color design and we’re excited about it.  You can find it free on Ravelry…

Until then,

Happy Stitching!!
