We have a surprise for you. Blue Heron Yarns has sent us a huge collection of their wonderful yarn ! These hand dyed works of art are simply scrumptious. The colors vary from soft pastels to rich jewel tones to vivid combinations. In my humble opinion, Blue Heron dyes some of the best yarn in the industry. Can you tell... I love this company?
They have sent us yarns we don't usually carry, in dozens of fabulous colors. In addition, we have several beautiful models on display.They are easy quick projects for knock out gifts. We will share a complimentary pattern if you purchase a skein. Here's a few pictures to whet your appetite. There are LOTS more colors available, we just don't have space to put every skein out! But then.... it's always fun to choose right out of the box!
And remember it's only here through Saturday, November 14th. Happy Knitting! - Susan
P.S. If you want to check out something awesome ... look at the Blue Heron Pinterest Page. Color, color, and more color. Oh My - I could get lost for hours!
Lizzie Kate has just arrived in Jacksonville. We will be hosting her wonderful trunk show with over 50 models on display through the end of November. The neat thing is that these are the actual models which were stitched by Linda's little fingers which were then photographed for the charts. Please come visit and be inspired. It's not too late... to stitch a little something for someone special in your life! Enjoy a glimpse of the models below. -Susan
P.S. The company name Lizzie Kate is actually Linda and Alan Ebrights daughters nicknames. Daughter Sarah is a talented artist/art teacher in Chicago. And daughter Allison is a foodblogger, her recipes are simply delicious. The proverbial creative apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Please check out the Lizzie Kate homepage for links to Linda's and the girls blogs. Very enjoyable reading, in between stitching.
Now through Friday, October 30th we have a collection of sweet designs from Painted Pony in the store. Featuring a variety of sweet ornaments including angels by Debbie Woodard, Santa Clauses by Petei, farm folk art by Dianne Ulmer Pederson, and folk art Christmas by Lynne Andrews.
Now through October 10th we have a large trunkshow from Kate Dickerson in the shop. There are hundreds of canvases included in all shapes and sizes, from small oraments up to and including several rugs. I love the colors she uses in lots of her canvases, bright blues, happy pinks, limey greens, bold yellows. It just grabs me, makes me happy and makes me want to pick up a needle and stitch a while. Here is just a tiny selection of the canvases for your viewing enjoyment:
This month we're happy to host a trunkshow from Alice Peterson Needlepoint. You may best know them for their Stitch and Zip kits, and we have a large assortment of Stitch and Zip kits in the store. But they also have many beautiful hand painted canvases in a variety of themes including: Christmas Stockings, Christmas Ornaments, Brick Covers, Pillows, Children' Decorations, Halloween, and more! Here are just a small sample of what we have in the store for a limited time. The last day we will have the show is Saturday, September 19th. All hand painted canvases from Alice Peterson are 15% for the duration of the trunkshow.
Now through the end of the month we are happy to host a trunkshow from Colors of Praise needlepoint. Designer Marie Barber has a wonderful artistic style.....reminds me of Kaffee Fasset. My best description would be both colorful and exotic. Her canvases include unusual items like lamp shades, extra wide hip belts, and two sided eyeglass cases. Enjoy our show tasting... but you'll have to visit to see many many more.
All canvases from Colors of Praise are 15% off during the trunkshow!
Just a quick note about what should be a fun class coming up. We're going to be teaching a basic sock class. If you were previously too intimidated to try making a pair on your own, now you can join in a group that will meet over the course of 3 weekends in June and will learn all about making socks. They're super fun to make, and not too hard to learn, I promise! Learn more here.
The Lee's Needlepoint Trunk show is still here and we are happy to say we are keeping it through Saturday June 6th. We are taking 15% off the normal prices on everything Lees during the trunkshow. Here's a sampling of the great canvases and leather goods available. Anything we don't have from Lees we would be happy to order for you; they have a wonderful catalog here.
