Hi, Stitchers! Next week is Thanksgiving and the shop will be closed on T-Day.

We will be open on Black Friday from 10-4 for all you avid shoppers. Normal hours will be in effect until Christmas. We willl close early on Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve at 2PM. Of course, we will be closed on Christmas Day and New Year's Day. Since they are on Saturday this year, this will really shorten time for our year end Pre-Inventory Sale. So this year, we'll extend the sale into the new year.

Our Pre-Inventory Sale will be Tues & Wed Dec. 28 & 29 10-4

Thursday Dec. 30 10-7

Friday Dec. 31 10-2

Tues & Wed Jan. 4 & 5 10-4

Thursday Jan. 6 10-7

Fri & Sat Jan. 7 & 8 10-4

Sunday Jan. 9 10-2

Pictured above on the left is Nanu's Hankie, from the new designer The Nebby Needle. Her three charts are finally here in the shop and they are really cute. The picture on the right is The North Wind from Little House Needleworks and is her last chart for this year. She is going to start the new year of Christmas ornaments in January. Snowflake Serenade is the new chart released from Country Cottage Needleworks. These last two should be in the shop shortly.

Well, gotta go, as it's taken the better part of the day just to do this small post.
Keep need to relax.

Hi, Everyone! Happy November. Heard on the radio Monday, only 9 weeks till the New Year! Not great news, but it is what it is.

Here are 2 pictures of designs from a new designer from Pittsburgh. Bonny Woomer has 3 charts out: Cabin in the Pines, Nanu's Hankie {(not pictured) and the friend pincushion, which also can be framed. They should be in the mail to me the beginning of next week and I really like them. Hope she continues and we wish her good luck.

Last week, a customer and I were talking about Carriage House Samplings going out of business. We thought she might someday come back with a new name. Well, she's kinda back as of December 1. Kathy Barrick's sister Marty, will assume designing for Carriage House Samplings and she's interested in continuing the Hawk Run Series. Currently, she's an art director for the Washington Post newspaper and an oil painter. We wish her good luck, too, and can't wait to see some of her designs.

New charts have just arrived from Hoffman, so I gotta go and check out the new goodies. Keep Stitching!
