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.
Spring has sprung and it's lovely outside, but don't forget about your needlework. There are lots of exciting packages arriving in the shop. Last week we received a delicious box from Malabrigo Yarn and Baah Yarns filled with new colors of Sock Yarns, Malabrigo Rios, Malabrigo Rasta, and Malabrigo Arroyo.
Also we have a Lee Needlepoint show scheduled for next month and that should be arriving in the next few days. There will be lots of smaller canvas's, crosses, stockings and the leathergoods to make a wonderful finished item. The leathergoods are available in a variety of colors and styles that range from beautiful jewelry cases, to purses, gift boxes, wallets, ornaments, even ipad cases for the technologically savy.
