News that Counts!
Sent: November 3, 2005
Hi Stitchers -
Happy November! This is the month that will bring cooler weather, leaves turning colors (somewhere!), the Dazor lamp sale (20% off all month!), preparations for the holidays (sorry - there are only 52 days until Christmas), gratitude, Thanksgiving, and I'll be a year older!
My most exciting news is that my Potluck canvas piece is framed and prominently displayed in the shop now. I look at it and can't believe that it came out of me - it's a proud feeling. I'm writing the instructions and should have them done next month. If you can't come see it in person, you can view it at
We've redecorated the shop window and the table display that greets you when you come into the shop. There are new models and a great new Tree for Autumn & Christmas. I've stitched a bunch of the acorns from Cricket's "In a Nutshell" patterns and Jeanette is making them into the acorns to hang on the tree. In the meantime, we do have an acorn hanging on the tree already. It's a premade pillow kit in the shape of an acorn - the stitching says "Nuts Stitch Here" and it's just too cute. The sentiment certainly applies to us here in the shop! I stitched most of it Tuesday night at stitching - you really should come & join us - we always laugh a lot! That's my plug for our Friends Who Count group that meets the 1st & 3rd Tuesdays at 5:30pm. To see the new displays, http://www.needledelights.com/index.php/photos/9.html
I've discovered a designer whose designs I haven't seen before and will be ordering from her next week. To give you a preview of what is coming and to allow you to reserve anything, check out her website and email me if you want to order anything. She has an adorable Village of the Month - the little shops come out about 4x7 and look adorable. $8.00 each She has a great Cross Stitch Nativity with the different "characters" finished as little standups. If you've admired the needlepoint pieces I've done on display in the shop but don't do needlepoint, this is a great pattern. $10 for the Nativity pattern and $20 for the wood backdrop. Her other small patterns are $4.00 each. Visit
I've put photos of my needlepoint Ornament of the Month series up on the website. I've had a great time designing these and teaching them this past year in the shop. I will offer them again next year as an online class. More details about how this will work will follow next month. We will start in January and each month will be $15.00 (includes free shipping). I will start taking sign ups now through the end of December. To see them,
I've added more Pray Trees
To see the new book listings for November,
Remember, you can place an order anytime, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I think I'll run another "fun contest" - anyone who places an online order for at least one item (can be a pattern, kit, or Crescent Colors threads) will be entered in a drawing for a Gift Certificate to Needle Delights (it will be a minimum of $10 but may be more if enough of you participate!). Orders must be placed by Sunday, November 6th at midnight to qualify for the drawing. If you don't want to place the order online but would rather call it in, just be sure to mention the FUN contest! You can also email an order - just type FUN in the subject line.
Til next week or I think of something dramatic to tell you, make sure to thread a needle this weekend and to come visit Needle Delights in person or on the web!
