Friday Update

Sent: February 20, 2009

Hi Stitchers -

Where does the time go??! It's Friday again and I just finished adding the new stuff for this week to the website. Click hereto see what has just arrived. The new Santa from Mirabilia is gorgeous and I know a couple of people that will be starting him tonight (no, I'm not one of them!). There are four designs frrom Prairie Schooler, several from Homespun Elegance and more.We also received a few "classics" from Stoney Creek. A lot of their older patterns that were best sellers are being re-released. I ordered a few and you can see more on the Merchant Mall. You can also see new stuff from Shepherds Bush and Little House we'll have in next week. As always, reservations are happily accepted for the new stuff!

Speaking of the Merchant Mall, I have to toot my own horn a little and annouce that Hoffman Distributing is now distributing Needle Delights Originals patterns (the ones I design). They have never carried counted canvas charts before but they are now! I may be on the way to becoming a best selling designer - I can dream! I'm working on some patterns now and hope to release several over the next few months. The gal stitching my "Stars" brought it in today and it's looking great - some of you have seen it in progress in the shop and keep asking ... it's coming along great.

On the personal front, I have new baby photos! Time is really racing when I tell you my niece is already a year old! I never even posted her 6 month picture - it's up now with her one year pictures - click here to see my beautiful niece! I was lucky to see her last Saturday and she is just getting to be so much fun - she isa very happy baby and very funny!

Just in today is a new (to us) brand of needles from France. The brand is Bohin and I was told by an extremely expert needlewoman I deal with that these are the best needles ever. She said they are smoother than any other needle and will just glide through the fabric. I will be trying them this weekend and will let you know what I think - it's exciting to try a new tool! We have them in tapestry sizes 20, 22, 24, 26, and 28 and also in crewel embroidery and milliners size 10. $2.95/pkg

We had a great time at our Stitch-In last Friday - thanks to all who came and especially to Anna Frances and Debbie who brought chocolate desserts! Also to Emily who brought her famous onion dip -our next stitch-in is Saturday, April 18th if you want to save the date!

Until next week - keep stitching!
