Hey everybody!

The Maggie Trunk Show came in and WOW did she send a lot of fun canvases!  She also sent some stitched samples and the pillows are to die for.  There are dogs, cats, birds, people – most crazy, some not so much.  Let’s get right into it.  Remember, all canvases in the Trunk Show are 20% off.

I did my “famous” YouTube videos so you can see the Trunk Show and call or email me for price, size and mesh information at 810-694-3040.

This Trunk Show is only here for THREE WEEKS so don’t wait.  Call me or come in now to purchase your favorites.



Classes Continue on Wednesdays

I teach on Wednesdays from 2-3:30.  Bring in your unfinished project and let’s get you going again.  Of course you can always choose a new canvas.  You’ll make new stitching friends and get that piece done!  Cost is $15 and must be prepaid upon sign up.

Help Wanted – Finisher

My finisher is SWAMPED!!!  She is more than four months behind.  The best thing I can do is find a second person to help with the finishing.  Do YOU have the talent required to turn our finished canvases into knife-edged pillows, boxed pillows, stand-ups and ornaments?  Please email me with your qualifications and price list.  If you’re out of state, no worries, I will ship the finishing to you.

Valentine’s Day is Coming

I have all sorts of fun Heart shaped and themed canvases.  Buy yourself a lovely gift for Valentine’s Day!  Just use my website www.homesteadneedlearts.com and type the word heart into the search bar.  To see the one above use the search word love.  You’ll see a number of fun canvases.  Buy directly online or give me a call.

Customer Showcase Starts Tomorrow

I’ve hung up all the items received and there will be a number next to each one.  Come on in to view your fellow stitcher’s works and vote for your favorite.  You can vote once per day per visit.  These are all AMAZING pieces!  The winner of the customer votes for favorite piece will win a Homestead Gift Certificate and the votes will be tallied March 1.

Short and Sweet

That’s it for this week!  Don’t forget the Anniversary Party on the 17th.  Gather with your stitching friends, have some refreshments and vote again on the Customer Showcase.  I have a limited number of goodie bags but there will be prizes throughout the day!  See you soon because remember, you don’t want to wait to see the Maggie Trunk Show.
