January 2018


Monthly Newsletter Happy New Year! 2018 is starting out with excellent stitching weather to keep us inside, cozy, and stitching day & night! We have trunk shows lined up for January and February. March brings the annual Nashville Needlework Market. Unfortunately, I am unable to attend this year due to physical limitations. I will be pre-ordering as much as I can but we will have to wait for shipping on most items. Therefore, the Market Party will be pushed back a bit to allow time for packages to arrive. It will be held on Wednesday, March 15tth from 10AM to 7PM. We will have prize drawings throughout the day (when you will need to be present) and a drawing for a gift basket which will be open to everyone attending. There are always great new releases so I hope you can fit it into your schedules & join us. Happy Stitching, Jan

ANNOUNCING A NEW SERIES
From Littlehouse Needleworks called "Farmhouse Christmas"

There will be nine charts released one at a time starting in late January. You must sign up to receive all the charts as I have to pre-order from the distributor. Please call the shop at 315-449-2181 to register or stop by to place your name on the list. The designs can be stitched individually or all together as one piece. I will try to have fabric similar to what was used in the models, but you can stitch them on whatever count you like.
