I know a lot of you have a long holiday weekend and I hope you’ll have some extra time to stitch! We’ve had out of town visitors in the shop most of the day today and it’s always fun to see old friends! Not much new in the shop this week but if you missed Tuesday’s email, I’ve put a lot of canvaswork patterns on sale as well as many cross stitch titles. My Spring Cleaning is your chance to get some great designs at “Deal” prices. Here’s a link to Tuesday’s email giving you more detail and the links to get to the sale items. PatternSaleEmail
We are looking forward to new things coming this summer – here’s a look into what’s coming from Lizzie Kate:
The Limited Edition “Life’s a Beach” kit from Lizzie Kate will be here soon. The Life’s a Beach kit will ONLY BE AVAILABLE THIS SUMMER OF 2011.
Check out this cover photo. The kit includes 18 ct fabric , 2 yellow flower buttons and the chart. Linda designed this project to be quick and portable, using easy-to-see 18 ct fabric to stitch over 2 threads – this makes the “X”s larger than usual!
You may reserve a kit – just send me an email if you want one. $12 These kits are Limited and will only be available through Labor Day.
Here’s a preview of the other goodies coming from Lizzie Kate in early June – please send me an email asap if you want to reserve anything. This preview comes directly from Linda (the designer of Lizzie Kate!).
*”I Know God” Inspiration Boxer – This is the 1st in our new series of Inspiration Boxers. The saying we used is a familiar one from Mother Theresa…”I know God won't give me anything I can't handle, but I wish he didn't trust me so much." We had fun creating a vintage look, both in our designs and our presentation. There are some previews of this kit on our recent blog posts (www.lizziekateblog.blogspot.com). Kit includes 32 ct. flax Belfast linen, hand-dyed buttons and chart PLUS A BONUS DESIGN!
Every Inspiration Boxer will include a FREE bonus design. This first kit includes a cool round design we put in the charming round box from Nordic Needle – a great pincushion! Kit does not include fabric for the bonus project (you choose a remnant from your stash!), but does have some beads for the bonus pincushion.
*Autumn Alphabet chartpak – 3rd in our series of seasonal designs, includes squirrel and moon antique gold charms and 2 tiny buttons for owl eyes.
*Flora McSample Farm Sampler Snippet – Flora had a fun time squeezing some barnyard animals (cow, pig, horse, sheep, rooster, bee), sunflowers and a barn into this whimsical mini-sampler. Go farm!
*Wine a Bit Snippet – After a lot of requests, we did a little wine design. It’s shown in a grape-y wine gift bag from Stitch-A-Gift, but you could also frame it. I stitched this design in an evening, aided by a glass of my favorite wine!
*Live Laugh Love Now & Then Snippet – This Now & Then Snippet combines 2 designs – our original “vintage” project, and a new updated look – take your pick or stitch them both. This saying is one of our all-time top sellers, so when we ran out, it was time for a makeover!
Don't forget to sign up for the Stitch-In June 11th!
