It's on the way.......and IMPORTANT INFO
The last of the Blackbird Designs Loose Feathers chart for 2012 is on it's way and will be here shortly. The sampler looks really nice and colorful and I like all the projects. Got the Gentle Art colors in earlier in the week and I can't wait till the chart comes. All I can tell you is that I think I read that it's worked on 30 count putty . The fabric will arrive with the charts. Come check it out.
You know, bad weather can pop up at any time, so if the weather is questionable, and you are out and about, call first and make sure I'm here.
Tonight, the 3rd Wednesday of the month, is our last free stitch night for 2012. The next free stitch night will be January 16 at 6:30 pm. Come give us a try.
The 'Spring' Stitch Club will meet Friday January 4th, 2013 from 7-9. This club will meet through May 2013 and the cost to join is $25.00. You must stitch something associated with these months, like a project for Valentine's Day, Easter, just plain Spring, etc. Free patterns will be handed out and we will have a 'party' in May. Call to sign up for this group...a few seats are still available.
The Halloween Club will be held the first Friday of the month, starting June and will run through October.
Cost is $25.00 and will operate just like the Spring club, except you must stitch Halloween. We are taking reservations for the group. Remember this year was our first club and we had a 'coven' of 14.
We do have a free group that meets during the day. It is held on the 4th Wednesday of the month. We have no meeting for December, so our next get together will be on Wednesday Jan. 23, 2013. We meet from 9-12.
As you know, if you've been following the blog and talking to me in the shop, I've gotten interested in wool applique. I would like to be able to get together with others interested in either wool applique or rug hooking, as I feel the two crafts share some common ground.
I would like to form a group, known as Friday Eve with Ewe and Me. We would meet the 4th Friday of the month from 7-9. The cost would be $25.00 for the year. You can work on either applique or hooking, just as long as you are working with wool fabric. I'm really hoping some of you ladies will join me as I'm really interested in talking to others who love working with wool. I'd like to exchange ideas about patterns and designers, tips to working with wool, color ideas and just 'everything' wool. Call today and reserve your spot for the first meeting of Friday Eve with Ewe and Me on January 25, 2013.
As it is getting really close to Christmas, may I wish all of you a Happy Holiday and best wishes for the New Year, may it be healthy and prosperous for all.
