News that Counts! and other notes...
Sent: January 23, 2006
We will have Open Stitching Night at the shop tomorrow night (Tues, Jan 24th) from 5-8:30pm. Since there are five Tuesdays this month, we're getting an extra stitching night. Everyone is welcome - just bring your project or buy a new one!
Also, mark your calendar for the next All Night Stitch - Feb 25th!
I have several people who want to learn Punch Needle and will be scheduling a class in the next few weeks. If you've wanted to learn, call or email me to join the class - I'll set the date based on the schedules of the people who want to come!
Now on to the News That Counts!
Just a few notes - I'm beginning to get lots of emails/notices about new things we'll be seeing at Nashville and that are being released shortly. If you surf the net and see anything that you know you MUST have, please email us and we'll be sure to bring it home for you! Jinger will be going with me to the Nashville market and we would love to be your "personal shoppers"!
We've received more new stuff since the last email I sent. Great canvaswork patterns from Laura Perin and Carolyn Mitchell (designer of Perspective Dreams). I can't remember names - I'm writing from home but if you like their other designs, you'll like the new ones too! Our Just Nan automatic arrived too - some cute stuff!
For now, here are a few things that have come through my mailbox:
The next two Monthly cat patterns from Calico Crossroads are:
Fat Cat Tuesday (wearing a mask for Mardi Gras!). See the photos at
Here's a link to a photo of Be Warm Shepherds Bush. This looks like it will be a fun series and you can sign up to get all of them through the year. See details in our Photo Gallery section of Monthly Clubs at www.needledelights.com

I've been stitching on my Monthly Stitcher's Surprise Series and just have a few more months to go to completely finish it. Ive updated the photo on the website.
You can sign up to start this series anytime for $20/mo and start with whatever month you would like. If you're stitching these and want to finish quicker, you can also get more than one kit per month - just let us know what you'd like. The kits for Feb 1st will be ready early and can be picked up anytime starting tomorrow (Tuesday).
Since I was adding a photo to the website, of course I put a few photos of the kittens for all of you who enjoy them!
Needlework Fabric Storage Boxes These have been around for awhile but are worth mentioning again. They are made of protective acid-free fiberboard and allow fabrics to breathe. They provide safe storage for your precious needlework, hand-dyed linens and other evenweave fabrics. They also prevent moisture build-up. Each box includes 24 sheets of acid-free tissue paper (20x30). The boxes come in two sizes 6 x 18 x 30 ($35.00) and Small 5 x 15 x 18 ($15.00). We will be placing an order for these boxes soon let us know if youd like to be included. They are great for storing those pieces of finished work that you're waiting to have framed.
Mirabilia will be releasing a new design, The Stargazer later this week. Although I've figured out how to put different fonts and colors in your emails now (don't have my directions at home though!), I've yet to figure out how to send a photo. If you'd like to see the photo, send me an email and I'll forward the photo to you tomorrow. This one may get added to my "must stitch" collection as I love stars! I'm including their description below. If you'd like to reserve one, let us know. Also, let us know if you'd like fabric and/or beads and treasures (also listed below).
The Stargazer md-88
White glowing stars reflect over a gown of satin ribbons and brocade. The dress is stitched in soft greys and dusty blues and covered in swirling starry beads. As the lady watches the sky filled with luminous diamonds she wishes upon them all. Dreams placed on a star really can come true.
