This April we will be having a Trunk Show featuring Lila's Studio, our local designer. If you get Just Cross Stitch magazine, the March/April 2011 issue featured a 2 page spread on Lila, followed by 2 designs and finishing instructions. Lila's samples will be on display and her charts will be available for purchase. They will be on display from Saturday April 16 through Sunday May 1. Mark your calendar and come check it out! You can preview her designs at www.lilastudio.net.
This year, to me, is strange and I guess it's all because Easter is so late this year. But you know it is now spring and, if you really admit it, it is time for that thing called spring cleaning. I don't know how many of us do it, but I know I don't do it like my mother did it. But start thinking about 'spring cleaning' your cross stitch supplies. NOW, is the time to start thinking about our STASH TO TREASURE event Memorial Day weekend. We will start accepting donations around mid April. Hey!!! Come check our Lila's Studio Trunk Show mid April and leave your donations for our Memorial Day weekend event.
For those who may not know about our STASH TO TREASURE event, here's what it is all about. We accept cross stitch charts, thread, fabric, whatever as a donation. We'll even take knitting or crochet patterns to rug hooking supplies. On Saturday May 28th, we'll put out all the donations for view by you, the consumer. You come and browse and take home 'new' supplies all for a CASH OR CHECK donation. All monies received are donated to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. This is a great way to recycle your unwanted Stash, which can become someone's Treasure. All for a Good Cause.
Some new charts came in today and we've been getting some new fabric in lately. Come check it all out!
Our Easter Feather Tree class was a huge success. Unfortunately, moi forgot a camera.
If you were unable to attend, keep this in mind - we may have another class in July. You could make a green or white tree for Christmas or how about a black tree for Halloween!
