Trunk Show – Kirk and Bradley/Burnett and Bradley

I’m hosting this dual Trunk Show which will arrive in next week.  There will be lots of fun ornaments and happy canvases that you’ll want to see … and probably take home!  Of course they won’t send ALL their inventory but you can see it on their website and then give me a call to order.  Look here. 


My finisher has asked me to push back the Christmas finishing deadline to September 1 to allow her to get your treasures back to me before Christmas.  Of course you can drop them off any time!  Earlier is always better.  When stitching for any holiday, count back about 3 months for the finishing…for example, your Fourth of July items should be dropped off April 1.

Thread Spotlight – Essentials

I thought I would start doing an occasional spotlight so that you can get to know some of our threads better.  This time we’ll look at Essentials by Planet Earth Fiber.   The picture above is just a small sample of the colors available.

Essentials is 50% silk and 50% Merino wool and is pleasant to stitch with.  It’s wound on small cards and there are 10 yards per card.  This is really great if you have a lot of small areas to stitch as they have 171 colors and I stock them all.  At just $2.75 a card, you can have all the colors of the rainbow – and more – at your fingertips.

If you want to purchase 10 a month, just ask and I can start you in the “Essentials” Club, $27.50 plus mailing.

New Items and New Items on the Sale Rack!  

I’ve added more new canvases to the website that have come in…most I ordered six months ago.  Check them out here.  Also, I’m saying good-bye to some other canvases that have been in the shop for a while.  If you love a bargain, check out the sales here.

Mask Update

The Michigan Department of Health has suggested that masks are no longer necessary inside of buildings.  To that end, I will not require masking at this time.  If you’re more comfortable wearing a mask, please feel free to do so.   If things change again, I’ll have signs on the front door.  Thank you for your patience during this time!


No this adorable dog is not for sale.  We both wish you a week of happy stitch-filled hours.
