May 2019

Monthly Newsletter May is the month that we hold our Annual Needlework Exhibit. We have a variety of pieces to display this year, all done by customers of A Stitcher’s Garden. Anyone coming into the barn can vote for their favorite and the stitcher with the most votes will receive a gift certificate to the shop. We also have gifts for the second and third top votes stitcher. Be sure to stop in to see the show and vote. It will be hung throughout the month. May is also known for a phenomenon called Stitch Maynia. Stitchers commit to starting, finishing, or working a certain number of days, hours, or whatever makes them happy. There is a Facebook group for those of you who would like to join in, share your stitching and connect with other stitchers. Wishing everyone a Happy Mother’s Day, Happy Memorial Day, and Happy Stitching, Jan
