May 2017


Monthly Newsletter There are lots of spring flowers, bushes, and trees coming back to life (finally) for us to enjoy. There are also lots of events coming along like graduations, showers, weddings, reunions, anniversaries, holidays, etc. to celebrate. Stitching gifts for friends and family to commemorate special events is a way to show how much you care and to give a gift to capture the memories being made. Patriotic season with Memorial Day, Flag Day, and the 4th of July begins this month, so we have an abundance of patriotic designs for you to choose from to stitch and display or to give away. Its also not too soon to start stitching for Halloween and Christmas even if its not "the season"! Wishing everyone a Happy Mother’s Day, Happy Memorial Day, and Happy Stitching, Jan
