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!
We have a treat at the shop during the month of December... A mini trunk show from Lizzie Kate. It includes most of the popular "Little" charts and a nice variety of inspirational "Boxers". There's still time to stitch one of these designs for someone special in your life. And if you purchase a chart from this trunkshow you will be entered into a drawing to win a complimentary Lizzie Kate chart. The show will only be here until the end of the month of December ....hope you are able to come visit.
We have a wonderful collection of needlepoint designs in the shop from Susan Roberts from now until Saturday, August 20th. There are almost 500 canvases to see, with a large variety of sizes and themes! There are lots of holiday themed canvases in the trunkshow: stockings, ornaments, standups, etc.. And there is still lots of time to get started on an ornament or even a Christmas stocking and have it finished this year. Or if you want a cool canvas to keep you out of the hot summer sun we have lots of pillows, and brick covers/door stops available. If you have never needledpointed but wanted to give it a shot a nice key fob would be a good first project, makes a great gift as well. In addition to all the above canvases there are wonderful dimensional 3d houses, stand up nutcrackers (from tiny to humongous life sized ones) and more! What's more we will be offering 15% off all Susan Roberts canvases (including shop canvases) for the duration of the trunk show until Saturday, August 20th. Hope to see you in the shop!

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!

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.
