I’ve been finding FUN STUFF to order and have some tapestry purses in the shop at a very reasonable price, more threads, some velvet pumpkins to decorate with, the new book from the “Squad” and more!  Read on for the fun stuff.

Master Stitches from the Stitch Squad, Volume 1

During their combined teaching classes, Suzanne Howren, Tony Minieri and Meredith Willett have often heard “you should put that stitch in a book.”  So they did!  Also they’ve included some basic stitches and how to start with a pinhead stitch.  The stitches are categorized as Beading, Blackwork Patterns, Buttonhole, Chain Stitches, Composite Stitches (lots of those!), Couching, Couching Patterns, Crossed Stitches, Darning Patterns, Diagonal Stitches, Milanese Stitches, Mosaic Stitches, Nobuko Stitches, Scotch stitches, Eyelets and Jean Hilton stitches.

The book is 151 pages with very large, very easy to read, numbered graphs.  It’s wirebound and measures 8-1/2 x 11″.  There is a second volume already in the works.  See the inset picture for an idea of how the book is laid out.  You can find it on my website here.  NOTE:  ONLY FIVE LEFT IN STOCK.

Painter’s Thread Perle Cotton #5 now in stock!

The Painter’s Ribbon Floss has been so popular that I thought you might like the matching perle #5 cotton.  It would be great to stitch a composite stitch with the same color, thereby giving you sparkle and matte look.  this is the red “Matisse” and you can see the ribbon floss in the left background.  Of course, like all good things, the price has risen recently but there is that there is 32 yards of perle cotton on the spool so you can be sure to get a lot of stitches out of it!

Velvet Pumpkins for Autumn Decorating

A woman in Wisconsin makes these adorable pumpkins and I knew we had to have some!   They’re about 5″ across, weigh next to nothing and will look great any where in your home.  The stems are resin but look real as they can!  I can easily order more if there’s not a color that you want.   These are not on my website as they are seling so fast, so call me at 810-694-3040 if you want to order them – colors shown are in stock now.  They are $15 each or 2 for $28 or 3 for $39.

New Tapestry Style Purses

Again, I thought this was a good fit for the shop and you don’t have to stitch a thing!  I purchased mostly sling style purses but you can see the variety of patterns on my website here.  The prices are very reasonable so you can have more than one if you like!  Please note that I only have one of each in stock.


New Canvases

I add the new canvases on line as they come in so always watch my website for the latest and greatest.  Above is a Raymond Crawford snowman ornament that just made its debut.

Restock on Glow In The Dark Threads

Halloween is coming and some of us are in the mood to stitch something scary!  I’ve restocked Kreinik #12, Petite Sparkle Rays and Neon Rays Plus in fabulous Glow in the Dark colors.  Time to get your Halloween on!

Hope to see you soon!  Happy August and of course, Happy Stitching.
