TRUNK SHOW and M O R E.........

Hey, stitchers, we are having a TRUNK SHOW featuring Nan Lewis, a local designer from the Philadelphia area.  Nan's company is Threadwork Primitives and she has some really cute designs and great finishing ideas.  You can see her products at her out.  Then come in and see the pieces in person and you can pick up your favorite charts and take them home and stitch, stitch, stitch!

I stitched 2 of her designs and they worked up so quickly.  Now I just need to find the right fabric to get them finished.  I stitched Kringle Crow and I want to finish him like she did, into a long and narrow pillow.  He's going to look real cute tucked on a shelf or into a bookcase or even in a basket with greens for the holidays.  She has a similar one for Halloween and that is my next stitch.  I really like her designs.

The TRUNK SHOW will be on display from Tuesday July 24th through Saturday August 4th.  Come check it out and get some stitching ideas for the fall.

CHRISTMAS IN JULY will be held at the same time as the TRUNK SHOW .  All Christmas charts and Mill Hill kits will be 20% off.  Halloween will also be featured at 15% off.  We will have selected charts available with a 25% discount (we need to move some of these charts to free up room for new ones coming out soon)  ----  Come  check them all out......

Christmas in July discounts and Summer coupons cannot be combined.

STITCHING CONTEST.......dates have been rescheduled.  We will hold our first Stitching Contest, here at our new location from August 7 through August 18.  Enter your favorite pillow, banner or framed piece.  All visitors to the shop will vote on their favorite piece.   The winner will receive a $25.00 gift certificate.  2nd place will get a certificate for $15.00 and 3rd place will receive a $10.00 certificate.

All entries must be received by Saturday August 4 and picked up after the contest by Saturday Aug. 25.

Want  to become a HOOKER.....A RUG HOOKER?  We will be holding a Beginning Rug Hooking Class on Saturday September 22 from 12-4.  You will hook a mug rug, also known as a coaster, in a primitive style.  Keep in contact for more info, soon.  Also hope to have samples for you to see.

Stay indoors and keep cool and stay stitching.
