Hello again!


As I write this, it’s POURING RAIN outside and that’s a good day to stay in and stitch to your heart’s content.   Do you need a new project?  Good news!  All Christmas items in stock are 20% off now through Tuesday, July 23.  It’s a good time to stock up on ornaments, full size stockings and pillow sized canvases.  If you’re shopping online, use the Coupon Code CHRISTMAS and you’ll receive the 20% off.  It includes everything in all the Christmas categories PLUS the Winter categories.  Happy days!  Find the full catalog of canvases right here.  Check out the fact that I made subcategories of Painted Canvases to make your browsing/shopping even easier.

Finishing Deadline

The deadline for guaranteed back by Christmas is Friday, August 2.  DON’T DELAY.  The sooner you get your finishing here, the sooner we’ll have it back to you.  Please remember that canvases not purchased from Homestead may have a surcharge added and may be sent to a different finisher.   The beautiful finished stocking above was stitched by Linda S. and is a Tapestry Tent canvas.

Customer Garage Sale Update

Are you pricing your items to be ready for drop-off?  Drop off your items starting Saturday, July 20 and ends Friday, July 26.  The garage sale will be held Saturday, July 27 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.  For all participant rules, see the newsletter here.   Remember, this only occurs every two years so don’t miss out this year!


New Items Arriving From Virtual Market

I shopped a couple of weekends ago and the items are coming in.  I don’t believe I’ve ever seen the Loch Ness monster on a canvas but there it is!  The next live market is in September so you have time to shop these news ones and then again after the next market.  See the newest items here.  I also just ordered a lot of cute needle magnets so keep an eye out for those.

Canvas Embellishment Classes Continue

Wednesday classes are continuing during the summer but are held every other week.  You may bring any canvas or purchase a new one and receive ideas for stitches and threads.  Classes are held from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.  Please call or email me for dates and sign up information.  The fee is $15 and must be paid in advance.

That’s it for this week!  Happy stitching.
