April 2019

Monthly Newsletter April holds the promise of new life all around us. And that includes a new Facebook Group #24HoursOfCrossStitch. It is being held nationwide (worldwide?) on April 5th. People are committing to stitch for various lengths of time and on projects that have already begun or are ready to start. Some are planning to start a new project every hour. Some are assembling kits ahead of time and threading their needles in preparation. It’s a fun way to spend some time stitching together even if most of us won’t be physically together during the event. We will be having our regular Stitch-In on Friday April 5th if you would like to join us. There is no obligation (or expectation) to stitch for 24 hours! Remember this month is the time to drop off your completed work at the shop for our Annual Needlework Exhibit. Everyone is welcome to submit work and to have the opportunity to win a shop gift certificate. Wishing everyone Happy Easter, Happy Passover, & Happy Stitching, Jan
