I am always impressed by our wide variety of customers with such varied interests and talents. We have noticed more interest in wool applique embroidery by our quilting friends so...We now have several new threads from Sue Spargo! They are: Dazzle metallic ( 50 yards) , Eleganza #5 perle cotton (40 yards) , Eleganza #8 (70 yards) and Ellana wool blend in (70 yards) spools. Also we have Sue Spargo Australian merino wool packs in 9"x7" 6 packs and fat 1/8th yard pieces.Oh My ....such beautiful colors. Hoping you are inspired!
This month we are happy to host a needlepoint trunk show from Painted Pony Designs this month! Featuring over 200 beautiful angels in every style imaginable, there's a design for everyone. There are angels decorated from locations around the world, angels with favorite hobbies and pastimes, and many, many more. These can be made up as ornaments with a stiff and padded finishing style, but they can also make a sweet little pillow if you stitch a square background around the angel design. Remember these angels will fly home on October 1st, so you will want to come see them before then. We are also offering 15% off discount on all angels from Painted Pony Designs for the duration of the trunk show.

We are so lucky to have a beautiful trunk shop at the shop during the month of January featuring JBW Designs. The talented designer, Judy Whitman, somehow combines elegant, sweet, classic and French all together in her designs.Hope you are able to visit the shop and find Judy's treasures inspiring. I know that I'm not supposed to have designer favorites (like children) but I love hosting this show. The finishing techniques are just awesome! You'll want to click on all the pictures below to check them out, or better yet come in and see them in person!
