November Holidays and Hours and upcoming events

With the approach of the holidays, I wanted to remind you of our hours.  We are open Tuesday through Friday 10-4.  I am reinstating late hours on Thursday till 6 PM.  Hope this helps some of you who requested late hours.  If 6 PM is still a bit of a stretch to get here, please, just give me a call and I can stay later.  If I have a previous obligation, I will let you know.  Saturday, I am open 10-3 and the first Sunday of the month, 11-2.

Of course, we will be closed Thanksgiving Day and we will reopen Friday at 10 AM.  Please make us a stop on your Black Friday shopping.  We have lots of charts and fabrics for a special project as a gift for someone, along with lots of stitching accessories.  If you don't want to pick a project for someone, we do have Gift Certificates in any dollar amount.

You know, we have a free stitch-in on the 3rd Wednesday of the month from 6:30 to 8:30.  Why not come join us some evening.  We sit and stitch and have lots of fun.  In November, due to the holiday, we have moved our stitching night to Friday, November 16.  Check us out. We do have lots of fun.

We have a day time stitch group that meets from 9-12 on the 4th Wednesday of the month. The next one will be held on Wednesday November 28th.  During that meeting, we will discuss a possible change for the December meeting.

This past summer, we had a Halloween Club which met once a month and we stitched only Halloween.
We had so much fun, that we are going to hold it again in 2013  from June through October and the cost to join will be $25.00.  Some of the members wanted something in the spring - would it be Easter or what?    The Spring Club will be held January through May, the first Friday of the month from 7-9 PM.  The cost will be $25.00  There will be a 'party'  in May.  This club will be a kind of free for all----you MUST stitch a piece that is Easter, Spring or Valentine's themed.  Any thing goes as long as the theme of the pattern occurs in the Spring.

Give us a call and request a spot on either of our Clubs.  Space is definitely limited.  A credit card number will put you on the list.

As for December, Christmas is on Tuesday, and of course we will be closed for the holiday.  Our Annual Pre-Inventory Event will  start on Wednesday December 26 and continue until Sunday January 6, 2013.
Keep this Event in mind as we will be house cleaning and  offering some really good deals!

I'm Back....

Had a great time and weather cooperated.  Will tell you more later but had to get these 2 pics up.  Threadwork Primitives is bringing out this design, perfect for the holiday.  Fill with Christmas cards or greens and hang on the back of a door or hang from a shelf or an old hutch.  Gonna start this one, myself, soon as it comes in.  The second is a sampler from the 2012 Winter issue of Sampler and Antique needlework magazine, hot off the presses.  Isn't it beautiful?  There are crowns and birds, dogs and butterflies thoughout and a verse stitched primarily over one thread.  Just think.... an 11 year old girl did this in 1835 and she didn't have an Ott light to stitch by.

Hope everyone came through Hurricane Sandy unscathed  and that the next storm trickles down to just a rain storm.

Talk again soon.
