Beth - Exactly what we were talking about today.
Hope you are open July 3.
Finished my first conversion (one on left is mine). Wish you could see how the beads sparkle!
Dear Ladies,I have not been in your store the last five years,i went back to work in the bridal buisness and have little time for cross stiching.I wish you all great happiness in your new location,I will try to get there,you are the best place to shop and an amazing inventory.I use to do a few models,but no time now.I have 2 new finished ones and would like to come if you are having a sale on framing.I am 2 hours away so i hope you are having a sale.I ordered a model for sale and i guess you were to busy moving.I will check again
Would you please provide a tracking number for my package? Nothing has shown up on my UPS or USPS informed delivery. I'm sorry to keep being a pest, but this process has been entirely too drawn out.
Did you send my order, or did you cancel my order? I regret having to communicate in a public forum, but it seems to be the only way I can get an answer from you.
Would someone please answer my email regarding the order I placed in December? I am extremely frustrated with your service right now.
She was trained as an immunologist and worked in research for years. But knitting began calling her to take a different path. “Every fiber of my being was saying, ‘This is what I was put on this earth to do,’” Rubin said. “It’s not about what you make. It’s how it makes people feel.” And so she took a new path. https://www.inquirer.com/life/knitting-anxiety-murder-ptsd-addiction-philadelphia--20210216.html

 A Christmas Carol by the Primitive Hare. It’s supposed to be a stocking but I changed it to a picture.
Got my Witch Bellpull hanger today in the mail from Homespun Samplar and finished up my Halloween bell pull- thank you Teresa for a great finish!
Do you have DMC 117 black 310 on a cone?

We have been sharing our love of x's for over 40 years with our friends....we're excited to share our love of counting and stitching in another way!

Love!! I love this series so far. Yes I know this is only the 2nd part, but she is quickly becoming one of my favorite designers!

A sad note. Mom worked with Pat for several years & she was a treasure in the industry.
She will be missed by so many.

We are sad to announce that we have lost a very dear friend, Pat Carson. She was the first designer that allowed us to distribute her cross stitch patterns and we were her first distributor also. Pat was a tireless promoter of counted cross stitch and is probably best known for her interpretation of the Precious Moments paintings. Her pattern book "Cross Stitch for Special Occasions" was the first pattern book to sell over one million copies! Lately Pat was the originator of Pat's Needles which were so extremely popular. She also worked tirelessly on her charities to raise money for elementary schools in southeast Asia.
Pat was quite the lady; even after her 45 years in the cross stitch industry, she had more energy and enthusiasm than anyone else I know! I was even joking with her at the Nashville Needlework Market in 2019 that she had so many ideas that she was making me worn out just trying to figure out how to do half of what she was suggesting. She was special in so many ways. The cross stitch industry won't be the same without her around to cheer the rest of us on. We will miss you Pat.

I think it's the excitement only a stitcher can feel. A stitcher at a start of a long journey whose project is uncertain... #Shawshank #ifyouknowyouknow

New model! This little ornament is A-DORABLE!!!!! I wanted to show it to you next to the chart cover so you can see what a difference it makes when it’s stitched. So if you see something that has one of these digital images, keep in mind it’s going to be SO MUCH PRETTIER when it’s stitched!
Stitched by Sherri Kohlerman.
Finished by Therese (aka, our FABULOUS FINISHER!).

The leaves are beautiful right now & starting to fall. It's beginning to get darker sooner, so even though it FEELS like it's midnight, my "get caught up" newsletter isn't QUITE finished. Hmm...that could be because I just got access to my website program back, after 3+ long weeks. I have worked thru the weekend on "stuff" but it's not quite ready. However, I still wanted to get something into your hands. So there's a newsletter falling into your inbox that's full of, well, news! Not awesome pictures of new goodies yet, but info on what's new, what's hot, what's crazy.
Big shout out to Nancy H. for the recommendation for getting help with my laptop!! They were awesome!!

Look at this lovely new series!! I’m not always a giant fan of monthly series - particularly when the name of the month is prominently displayed - but this is so pretty! If you are like me & don’t love the month’s name, this is pretty enough that you could personalize the cartouche in several ways. Put a last name there & a wedding date. A baby name & a birth date. Or find a large alphabet & stitch your last name initial in it.
Be creative! Be flexible! Have fun!

I’m so excited to share my NEW 2022 Monthly Quaker Series with you. January Quaker will begin shipping next week. I have sent all the info to my list of needlework shops. So they will be ready to take preorders very soon. I hope you will join in and stitch with me.

This is stitched in Classic Colorworks Blue Moon, Deep Blue Sea, and Blacksmith Blue on Platinum linen from Zweigart.

I love this block finished flat like this!! Think outside "the box".

Just wanted to take a sec & say what a great day today was! Too often, I’ve shared stories about our bad days, but today was awesome! So many happy stitchers, both new & returning - some we haven’t seen in a few years - you made our day. Almost everyone was in a great mood, getting new projects, picking up finished or framed pieces, and just generally enjoying the day! And even the folks looking for things that haven’t arrived yet were kind, patient & unworried.
So, a HUGE hug from Therese & me for making our day so fantastic!!

Well, I am here to apologize for my radio silence. My laptop has become quite finicky in its old age & is the only place I can work on a newsletter. Grrrr….. I am extremely frustrated with myself bc it’s all written, and ready to go. Thanks for your patience & say a prayer that my laptop decides to play nicely.
*sigh*

There are no cross stitch police!!!

I love all these cute little designs!! And I can never decide if I like them all together or individually….decisions decisions…..

#halloween 🎃 🦇 👻 Stitch one or stitch all. Either way, Halloween Square Dance will put you in the mood for the emergence of ghouls and goblins in your neighborhood. Happy haunting, friends! #heartinhandneedleart

This is a very cool resource. It’s one of those things I would like to sit with a needle & thread & a piece of fabric and just play.

A quickie newsletter in your inbox! I've posted a bunch of new non-Expo goodies, so there's a little info about that & a gratuitous "who dresses you?" nephew story!
EDIT: Wow, it would have been nice if I'd given you the link to the newsletter: https://www.strawberrysampler.com/page1.html

Charlee's thinking "Yeah, um, who dresses YOU?"

I love reading posts from RSN. This is a very cool catalog they’re producing, in addition to all the other interesting things they do to promote needlework.

Today is International Charity Day, a day to raise awareness and provide a common platform for charity related activities all over the world for individuals, charitable, philanthropic and volunteer organisations for their own purposes on the local, national, regional and international level.

The RSN is a registered charity number 312774 and our mission is to ensure the future of hand embroidery; we were founded in 1872 and we are kicking off our 150th anniversary celebrations towards the end of this September with two very exciting launches, one of them the RSN Stitch Bank. To ‘Adopt a Stitch’ and learn more about it: https://bit.ly/3DNrIs4

The team would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our Friends, Special Supporters, Life Friends, Students, Shop and Embroidery Studio customers, Online Talk attendees, and organisations who support our students throughout the year with funding. We could not continue our mission without your financial contribution and support, and for that we are truly grateful 💜
