Today I hope to inspire you to finish those projects you’ve started and to whet your appetite for something new. So here goes… enjoy.
We start with inspiration…
The Georgie Santa Update.
This is after two weeks. I know, we hate her, but we love her, right?
If you would like to stitch one of these Amanda Lawford designs, we can order one for you. Of course, you can choose a smaller.
And check out these finished needlepoint projects.
Leona’s Owl Ornaments. OMG!!! I’m in love! I wonder if she would notice if they disappeared.
We showed you these pillows a few weeks ago before they went home, but they look so much better here.
Next up a couple of reminders…
Swoon in June Sale!!!
25% off needlepoint canvases
(excludes full sized stockings, mini stockings with stuffers, New Orleans and select Halloween)
25% off most yarn (there are a few exclusions).
Saturday Snacks and Skills Classes
June 15 — Dealing with Borders (needlepoint). You can bring in a canvas you are currently working on, or has been neglected because you just don’t know what to do with the edge, or you can take advantage of the sale and pick a new canvas. The class is $20 and you will be treated to some munchies while you learn. You can peruse our canvases here.
July 20– Santa Class. Cost is $150 ($75 due at registration), which includes the canvas, threads, stitch guide, instruction and of course some snacks. Here are the Santa canvases to choose from.
August 17 — Stranded Knitting. That is not a class about what to knit when you are stranded. It is a class on color-work. Here is an example of stranded knitting. Cost is $20 plus supplies.
Guess what else is happening soon.
A Book Signing.
Terri DuLong will be here on Wednesday, August 21st, 1-3 pm to sign her latest book, Postcards from Cedar Key. The books are ordered and will be here soon. You can call the shop to reserve your copy. The Knotty Knitters book club is planning to read it for July.
Now here’s something new.
A circular needle case. This one is currently holding 26 pairs of needles from size US 0-11. It’s quite handy and cute, too!
And to finish up we have a few finished objects to share with you.
