The Library from Little House Needleworks!!

Hi All!!!

Got a quick update for you today!!! LittleHouse Needlework's newest design - The Library - coming to our shop very soon!!! It can be stitched as one large design or it can be stitched as several smaller individual pieces!!
Carriage House Samplings has been giving us sneak peeks of her new design Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow - we have been piecing it together on the website - check it out, it is absolutely beautiful!!! Kathy also hinted that there may be a Fall at Hawk Run Hollow coming in the future - maybe there will be some Halloween designs on it!!
Holly and I will be going to Market in St Charles in less than 2 weeks......we will be posting on the blog to keep you updated on all the new goodies we will be finding to enhance your stash!! If there is something in particular that you would like, let us know and we will do our best to find it for you!!
Also, one more thing..........(I know this was supposed to be a quick update......but once I get going..............) Pat Carson - Designs by Gloria and Pat - is selling some of her collection of needlework books that she has collected from all over the world during the past 30 years - many are out of print - we have them in the shop if you'd like to come by and take a peek at them. They are such neat books with lots of information, history and many unique designs - once they are sold, that is it - don't miss out on this opportunity to own a piece of needlework history!
Got to get going......... hope you all are having a good weekend.
Take Care,

Sneak peeks!!

Hi again!!

Hope you are all having a great Labor Day weekend!! We have been keeping busy in the shop........Holly and I are getting ready for market at the end of this month. We plan on bringing back lots and lots of new goodies for your stash enhancement.........Kathy at Carriage House Samplings has let us have a sneak peek at her new design , Christmas At Hawk Run is just beautiful!! We have the charts reverved and will be bringing them home from market..........we have the floss ordered and fabric in the shop , so we are all ready to stitch!! I have added the pictures to the blog for you to see!!
Please let me or Holly know if there is anything specific that you would like us to bring back for you from market, we would be happy to fulfill your list of goodies!
On a more serious note...........we had a "vandal" in the shop recently, and I have been taking some time to figure out how to handle this situation. One of our stitched models had a chunk of fabric hacked out of it by the "vandal"............what kind of person would do such a thing??? Well, because of the scope of our businesses that we own, we have outside and inside surveillance systems. So we know who the "vandal" is and know the car and licence plate number. We also have a picture that I am seriously considering hanging up in the shop. Or should I file a police report and let the police handle it. I will give the "vandal" until the end of September to contact me about this...........then we will take legal action against the "vandal".
Got to is busy this weekend!! Hope you all have a safe and happy Labor Day Weekend!!!
Take Care,
Margaret, Jessie, Holly, Pam, Amy, Kacy, Emily,and Ann
