Back from Nashville!

Jessie, Holly and I made it back from Nashville safe and sound!! We had a fantastic time at the wholesale show - we got to see alot of old friends, new products, and new designs. We had a computer malfunction at the show, so we couldn't get the blog updated. Jessie has been updating facebook almost daily with new goodies.
We are bringing a new floss line into the shop - Sullivans Floss - it has a really nice look to it, comes in just about as many colors as DMC (even has the corresponding DMC number on the label of each skein), and is very nice to stitch with. Watch for our introductory sale as soon as we get the floss and spinner rack delivered.
Blackbird designs is presenting a year of houses, a new design each month - you can stitch each individually or stitch them on one large piece of fabric for an impressive sampler. Each house will be released monthly and the ladies from Blakcbird designs will also add bonus charts, too.
We will also be taking pre orders on a special item from Sue Hillis. She will be releasing it in about another month and it is absolutely beautiful!!! Jessie will have a picture on the website this week! Hint: You will need an empty Whitmans candy tin!!
The shop is packed with so many new items!!! Unique scissors!! New floss colors!! Wonderful hand - dyed fabrics and lots of cross stitch charts - Hawk Run Hollow from Carriage House, Wicked from Primative Needle, Pirates from Sue Hillis,Little House Needle and Thread kit, new Lizzie Kates, Bent Creek,La-d-da, Olde Colonial Designs,Blackbird designs.........and so many more ............come by and see it all soon!!
We look forward to seeing you!!! Now I have to get back to stitching Autumn at Hawk Run Hollow..............hope you had a great weekend, and now that March is just about here, hope we all have some better has been a long winter!!
Take care,
Margaret, Jessie, Amy, Holly, Kacy, Pam and Ann

Nashville - Here we come!!!

Hi All!

Just a quick post to let you know we are leaving Friday for Nashville........our bags are packed and the M&M's bag is full!!! We will be on the road Friday morning - Jessie, Holly and I are going. Pam, Amy and Howard ( Holly's husband) will stay behind to run the shop. Autumn at Hawk Run Hollow (pictured here) is just one of the new and beautiful items we will be bringing back with us. Little House Needleworks and Impie, Hattie and Bea have another new item - we don't have any info on it yet - but if it is anything like their past collaborations - it will be gorgeous and useful. Primitave Needle also has some really neat samplers she is releaseing - Lisa's theme for Nashville is "Wicked"!! If you are a Halloween or Witch fan - these samplers will really appeal to you. ( one of Lisa's new samplers is pictured above)

We will have our camera and laptop to update the blog as often as we can, Jessie may even update face book, if she can, too.
Got to get my stitching bag packed............we will post updates as often as we can!!
We look forward to seeing you at Cecilia's for our Market Days - Feb 26th and 27th. There will be LOTS of new needlework items, charts, kits, fabric, floss, and notions for you to fall in love with !!
We thank you all for your support as we had a great 2009 and look forward to a fun and wonderful 2010 with you all!!!!
Take care,
Margaret , Jessie, Amy, Holly, Kacy, Pam, and Ann
