 Brenda Gervais of With Thy Needle and Thread, has created the perfect summer project....Summer Schoolhouse.  There will be 4 lessons and you will create 6 petite projects, known as smalls.  The mystery series will start in June and the fourth chart will arrive in September.  If you have ever wanted to stitch one over one, here's your chance.  You will be stitching on 28ct mushroom evenweave fabric which will make stitching one over one much easier as the threads are all even, allowing the holes to be more prominent.  Flosses being used are one skein of each...WDW: Peach, Oscar, Olive, Sandcastle and Flat Fish;  GA:  Old Hickory, Lexington Green, Mountain Mist, Uniform Blue and Woodrose; CC:  Pebble Beach, Hazelnut, Cayenne, Used Brick and Egg Shell.  Lesson 1 charts should arrive the last week of June.  But I have to tell you that the fabric is on backorder with the distributors till July.  RESERVE YOUR COPIES NOW!  My order will be placed by the 19th of June.  The fabric is on order, flosses are being restocked and some trims are being ordered for the project.

Heartstring Samplery has created  A Little Quaker, stitched on 32 Stars Hollow Blend with a stitch count of 101x93.  It uses CC, GA and WDW flosses.  It's really cute and gives a great idea of Quaker designs.  Also new is Once Upon a Summer Huswife, a pocket to hold flosses and needles when traveling.  Why couldn't you just stitch the piece and frame it?  This is stitched on a 35ct fabric with a stitch count of 247x71.  This design also uses CC, GA and WDW flosses.

And finally, Stacy Nash has created a new Animal Cracker....Harrison, for those who love bunnies.

Call us and reserve your copies now.

Isn't this a real cutie?  I have to admit I am partial to polar bears and I will be doing this as soon as they come in.  So reserve your copy NOW.  This would be an ideal project to stitch at our Christmas Stitch which is on the 2nd Sunday of the month from 1-4.  Cost is $5.00.  Just bring a Christmas project and have fun stitching with others and check out what they are stitching for never know, you may find your next stitching project.

Come join us Friday June 1 for the first of 5 monthly stitch groups and create another great Halloween piece in cross stitch.

I know it's been a while.  Busy with getting new items in from the March Needlework market, taxes and just life in general.

Let us know if you want us to reserve a copy of any of the following new designs.

Plum Street Samplers will be bringing out 4 new designs and they should be in the shop within 2 weeks.  Hello Spring came out at market and is being followed by Hello Summer, stitched on a new color of R&R fabric called Patriot's Brew (which I have on order and should be receiving shortly).  A cute and simple design with an Americana flair.  Also stitched on the same fabric is Mariner's Drum.  This design could be a companion piece for Cape Cod Keep.  It shows a pirate anchoring his ship to search for sunken treasure.  By the way, there is some 1 over 1 stitching on this piece.

  Sampler House I and Sampler House II  are starting a new series for PSS.  Each will give a study of houses and traditional motifs that are found on antique samplers.  Sampler House I is 97x97 and II is 98x99.  Both are stitched on 36ct fabrics from R&R and use CC floss with DMC conversions given and could be framed, as shown, or sewn to create pillows/pinkeeps and thrown in a bowl or basket.

Continuing in her series, Summer House Stitche Workes has brought out #5 and #6 in her 2017 Fragments in Time series.

Cape Cod Keeps...designs of the whale measures 72x51 and the mermaid 73x52.  She stitched them on  36ct fabric using Classic Colorworks and WDW flosses.

Sampler Lesson 2 was previously released as a kit and now just the chart pack.  Stitched on a 36ct fabric, the stitch count is 99x82 and uses Classic Colorworks floss.

Cotton Bird has a stitch count of 127x107, uses 36ct fabric and CC and DMC flosses.  This chart was previously a club piece.  This is quite appropriate right now with the cotton plants since a lot in the  design world is using cotton clusters, wreaths and stalks.
