Hi Fellow Stitchers,
Hope you all had a good Memorial Day weekend! It is always nice to take time to remember and honor our loved ones and our Veterans that have passed on. And to Thank God for our blessings!!
We are planning an exciting Summer here at the shop!! Jessie and I will be going to Columbus in June (6th - 9th) for the TNNA Needlework wholesale show - we plan to order lots of new goodies for you all !!! The shop will still be open - Pam, Amy and Shevera will be here to help you with your stitching needs 'til we get back.
We are still waiting for Ann to get back from Florida. Ann is our "table topper queen " and our official greeter -Ann has stitched almost all of the Dutch Treat tabletoppers and several other shop models (that is why our walls are so full!!!). She Winters in Florida and is usually back here by now - hopefully she will be back in another week or two!!
Susan Greening Davis will be here in July for a really neat class and her "Gadget Gal" presentation. We are expecting a really fun and exciting weekend, there are still a few spots left in the class, so if you are thinking about it, now is the time to sign up!!
I have been working on the Jeannette Douglas Stitching Treasures Accessories - Have them just about all stitched - now I need to finish them into a needlebook, scissor fob, alphabet banding, scissor case and pin wheelie. They were really easy and quick to stitch. For those of you that have the box, Jeannette suggests using the left over threads from the thread pack, but I am going to put together a thread pack for the accessories as soon as I get them all done and see exactly what we need. The whole set really looks so beautiful together with the box.
Got to be going.............have a wonderful weekend............maybe sneak in an ice cream cone for yourself!! My Mom always loved ice cream, it makes everything fun!!!
Take Care,
