Off to Market!
Wednesday, 14 January 2009

The National Needlearts Market, that is.

I'll be leaving for warm San Diego tomorrow to attend the TNNA Market.  Don't be too jealous since I'll spend a majority of my time in the convention center and barely see the outside.

 Can't wait to start shopping!  I'll be checking out all the new products being offered and hope to have a majority in the shop in the next few weeks to follow.  Please drop by to see what's coming in.

 Wiltex threads will be coming out with a new Vineyard merino wool that is a single twist and covers beautifully on an 18 mesh canvas and also on a 13 mesh painted canvas.  They will start with 90 new colors and hopefully expand along the same color line as the Vineyard silk.  We have them on order and hope to have them in the shop by the end of January or early February.  I was given a sample and loved working with it as well as the coverage!

 A Collection of Designs Trunk show will be here in February including some of their new designs, fresh from Market.  We also have a number of great trunk shows set for 2009.  Please check out our trunk show calendar and mark your calendars as well!

Hope to see you all in the shop soon!  Winter is a wonderful time to stitch!

Classes for 2009 now listed!

New Classes listed for 2009!

Please check out our class list  calendar for the 2009 classes that have been added.  We have classes for the beginner, intermediate or advanced stitcher.

We have brought back the multi square class for the beginner as well as adding a multi-square tote class for the intermediate stitcher.

 Ruth Dilts will be teaching both a Valentine House class and a Kimono class for the first time since being taught at the TNNA market.




We will also have a Rainbow Gallery Fiber Notebook class in March which will use the entire Rainbow Gallery thread line using 70 different stitches.  This will make an excellent reference notebook when deciding what stitch or thread to use on your next canvas.

Please drop by the shop to take a look at the photos or models.  Class spaces are limited, so please sign up early!

Back by Popular Demand

New Beginner's class starting November 1st!



 We had such a great response to our last beginner's class that we've decided to try and squeeze in another before the hectic Holidays.

 This will be for the beginner stitcher.   You will learn the continental, basketweave, nobuko and smyrna cross stitches to complete an insert for a starfish pillow.   All materials and instruction will be included as well as a pre-finished pillow.  All you need to bring are your stitching  scissors.  Please come into the shop if you want to see the finished product.

 The class will be held Saturdays November 1st and 8th from 10am to 1pm and be taught by Ruth Dilts at Waste Knot Needlepoint.   

The cost of the class is $120.00.  Class size is limited so please sign up early!
