Beth Gantz Trunk Show – Canvases and Small Frames

Beth has been designing for years.  She has lots of small easy to stitch canvases that are perfect for her variously sized frames.  Just think about how great it would be to stitch a canvas and frame it yourself!  It would be a memorable gift for a friend, for Halloween, Christmas or for a wedding.  And the best part is that she will custom paint one for you.  Do you want your initial with one of her backgrounds like chevron, gingham, bubbles or stripes?  She’ll do that for you.   You can have it square, round, heart-shaped or mini sock sized in the colors of your choice.  What about a banner of your family name?  That would be clever!

The frames include easel and flat back.  The easel frames come in 3″ round, 4″round, 3″ square, 4″ square and 5″ square.  The flatback frames come in 3″ round, 4″ round, 3″ square, 4″ square, 5″ square and heart shaped.  There are also boxes that fit the 1″ square canvases.  The colors include aqua, black, blue, brown, grey, lime (more of a minty color), orange, pink, purple, red and white.    Think about your small ornaments that you want to stitch…will one of these frame sizes work for you?

All items in the Trunk Show are 20% off regular prices.  All canvases and frames are very reasonably priced.  The trunk show will be here through Friday, June 29 but for best choices, shop early!  I can always order for you also.

Vacation Closure
I will be closed Friday and Saturday, June 14 and 15 for a short vacation.  Please shop online or see me the following week.   The canvas above pretty much looks like my vacation!
