RE: New Prairie Schooler Santa (may be a repeat email)
Sent: July 6, 2007
It's been a short week with the 4th of July thrown into the middle of the week but we've still received a lot of orders in the shop this week. The market orders continue to trickle in along with the regular stuff. We've had lots of visitors from out of the area and it's so fun to see what everyone is stitching or getting ready to stitch.
We have new kits from Shepherds Bush - they are on the "New in the Shop" page. I think my favorites are the very quick to stitch (really - I'm not kidding!!) Halloween bags - they're on 18ct linen and the bags are already finished - no sewing involved. They're a great bargain at $12.95 (EVERYTHING is included).
Scissor Alert: For those of you who like scissors (you know who you are!), I found some really cool new scissors at market and they just came in this week. They have a ring lock system and will never "loosen up". They're made in Italy and are a matt chrome. They're very lightweight and feel fabulous. I may have to take a pair home myself! We got regular 4 1/4" embroidery and curved tip - $23.95 each.
The Merchant Mall is updated with new patterns released today - we'll have them in the shop on Tuesday. I was happy to see we'll be getting the next Red Thread pattern -it's a Maypole!
There are great designs from Prairie Schooler - in addition to the Prairie Schooler Santa - you can see them on the new page. Stitching Ties from Jeannette Douglas has been released - we saw a sneak peek at this in Nashville and it was beautiful.
We received a couple of new books - one of the fabulous French hardcover books in the Alphabets Anciens series, and another on Beginning Goldwork.
Our 2nd shipment of Just Nan Ladybug kits arrived today - they're mostly sold out but I do have a couple of extras - they'll go fast so let me know quickly if you want one! $50 ea - you can see them at http://www.justnan.com
A fun new item at Needle Delights are nail files! Why nail files, you ask? You don't want any jagged nails when you're stitching and well, these have cool designs on the front and our shop info, hours, phone numbers, etc on the back. I ordered these at market on the recommendation of a designer/shop owner and they just arrived yesterday. They're flying out the door already! They are a salon quality nail file with fine grit on one side and medium grit on the other. The design doesn't disappear as you use the file. We have 10 designs to choose from - take a look and try to pick just one! I think my favorite is the one with Just Another Button Company's buttons on it and "Itching to be Stitching" - ok, I couldn't pick only one! It's July so start thinking Christmas - GREAT stocking stuffers!
On that Christmas note, I want to remind you to mark your calendars for our 15th Annual Holiday Open House next month. It will be Thursday, Aug 23 (in the evening ONLY), Friday, Aug 24, and Saturday, Aug 25th. We're planning some fun things for you!
To see all the new stuff -
I finished stitching Midsummer Night's Forget Me Not - it turned out great! I scanned it and put it in the Shop Displays (scroll down to Midsummer Night...). I also posted a photo of Mirabilia's Ivy (one of the Pixies from the Couture Collection). Sherri Rigby stitched it and was kind enough to let us borrow it at the shop so you could see it! It sparkles with the metallic and the beads and is so much prettier than the picture. If you want to see it, we have it at the shop.
I'll be updating the website and removing some things from the photo gallery in the next few weeks. One of the "Galleries" to go will be the Models for Sale - take a look and if you see something you're interested in, let us know. This will be your last chance to buy something "off the walls" of the shop.
Tomorrow is 7-7-7!!! So for a special for those of you read our emails who place an order and mention the 777 special, I'll throw in a free nail file with your purchase of $25 or more. If you come to the shop tomorrow, just mention the "777 special" and pick out your free nail file! This offer good only through my weekend (I'll take emails through Monday, July 9th at noon).
