Hi Stitchers –
We had a great time at the Stitch-A-Long this morning – attendance was great and I heard lots of laughter from the stitching room – music to my ears – it made my heart happy to be able to have a hand in bringing people together to share the love of needle and thread. Our next SAL is Friday, March 5th - mark your calendars.
Please also mark your calendars for Feb 19th & 20th (Fri & Sat). The shop will be closed while Tonia & I attend the Nashville Needlework Show. We'll be having a special "Nashville Night" on Wednesday, Feb 24th from 5-7 to reveal all we purchase! I'll be posting a "Highlights Preview" on Tuesday next week.
To see what arrived in the shop this week, visit NewThisWeek. There’s quite a variety, a good mix of cross stitch and counted needlepoint as well as some gadgets.
It’s Superbowl weekend and for fans of Mardi Gras and Louisiana and people everywhere who are pulling for the Saints, here’s a new chart just released from Ink Circles – we’ll have it in the shop next week. I forget the name but it's in the Hoffman update and the price is $4.00 if you want to reserve it.
For you avid Saints fans, visit Accents (my friend Gayle’s shop in Metairie, LA) to see special Saints patterns she’s done throughout the season.
You can probably tell I’m rooting for the Saints although I am a big fan of Indy as well. I’m really hoping for a great game.
Have a great weekend.
