Silver Needle Trunk Show and Xmas Deadlines
Monday, 30 July 2012

The Silver Needle  trunk show has just arrived at the shop!  They have sent their ever popular city, state and country rounds, door stops, belts, their Adirondack and Nantucket collections as well as their Goodnight Moon and Beatrice Potter canvases.  Go to our  website and click on her link for a preview.  All trunk show canvases will be discounted 15%.  The trunk show will only be here until August 14th, so make plans to drop by soon.

It's hard to believe but this is probably a good time to go over Christmas Deadlines for finishing.  Our deadlines are as follows:

October 1st for Ornaments, standups or any hand finishing items.

October 31st for Belts 

November 15th for full size stocking and basic pillows.

If you have questions as to deadlines for a certain piece that you don't see listed above, assume it is probably in the October 1st deadline or call the shop to verify.  As with most finishing, the sooner it is in, the better.  We cannot guarantee finishing of any items for Christmas if they are submitted after the deadline dates.

Hope everyone enjoys the remainder of the summer and hope to see you at the shop sometime soon!

Associated Talents Trunks Show/Birthday Sale
Friday, 04 May 2012

Can you believe it is May already?  No better way to celebrate our 4 years in business  than by having a new trunk show and our birthday sale!

Our trunk show this month is Associated Talents.  They have some absolutely wonderful canvases that cover just about everything.  Go to my website and click on their link for a preview.  All trunk show canvases will be discounted 15%. 

For our birthday sale, we will offer 20 % off of all threads and canvases in stock.  This will not apply to the trunk show or special orders.  The sale will begin at 10am on Thursday May 10th and run through Saturday May 12th.  The items will be on a first come first serve basis.  If you can't make it into the shop, feel free to call with a credit card.  Due to the popularity of our sale and the volume, we will only be able to help pull threads for canvases that have been purchased in our shop and even that will depend on the volume of people in the shop.  We will be glad to give a perusal and give suggestions for shop canvases.

As many know, we are discontinuing our Paternayan.  For the sale we will be offering  our 8 yard skeins at 25 cents each.  We are also going to be discontinuing our Trio thread to make room for some Planet Earth Fibers.  We will be offering all Trio at 50% off.  They are the same colors and make as the Silk and Ivory but need to be plied.  They are perfect on an 18 mesh canvas.

Don't forget to check out the Woodlawn needlework show.  It will run from 5/12 to 6/10/12.  They will be closed on Tuesdays and the tea room will be closed on Thursdays.  Check the Woodlawn website for more

We still have a few spots open in our Basket stitches class taught by Suzanne Howren and Beth Robertson on June 3rd.  It will run from  10am to 5pm and include lunch.  Our classes do fill up quickly so call soon if you are interested.  Please see our class calendar on our website or call the shop for more specifics and to reserve a spot.

FYI, we will be open Memorial Day weekend but will be closed on Memorial Day Monday.
