Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day!! Everyone at Cecilia's wishes you all a wonderful Mother's Day!! In appreciation of all Moms we are having a Mother's Day sale from Saturday - Monday we will be having a 25% off sale in the shop and on the website!!  All regular priced items will be on sale. We hope you all enjoy the sale and have lots of fun!!
Last month was a busy month for us. We had our 2 spring retreats - lots of new friends were made, alot of good food eaten, stitching day and night and lots of fun!! The retreats are really neat - we get to see what you are all stitching - raise some money for a charity - and spend time with wonderful ladies!! Holly does a fantastic job in organizing these events and the ladies are very appreciative of all Holly's hard work.
My Dad came to visit us from Massachusetts. Cecilia was my Dad's Mom - he is very proud of the shop and comes to see us every year. We had a great time with him here.......he got to visit with his grandkids and great grandkids and even dropped by the retreat to visit and help out!

We have some BIG NEWS!!!!! June 9th we will be welcoming Pat Carson from Designs by Gloria and Pat. We will have the honor of Pat spending the day at Cecilia's with us. She will also be debuting 4 NEW Precious Moments books that she will be releasing this summer. Pat has been a leader in the needlework industry for decades. She still teaches classes all over the world and is the driving force in keeping needlework alive so it can be passed down through the generations. Keep watching the website or check us out on Facebook for more updates.There will be more details coming.........

ROADTRIP!!!!!!  Cecilia's Samplers will be going to CELEBRATIONS in St Charles Missouri. Holly, me and 3 of our helpers (Sharon, Theresa and Sandy) will be transporting a smaller version of Cecilia's to Celebrations in September. It is our first retail roadtrip - we are all very excited about it. If you are near St Charles the end of September, stop by and say "hi" - we'll be happy to see you.  We'll have alot of items that are exclusive to only Cecilia's, free goodies and , of course chocolate!!!

I am going to post some pictures of a few new items in the shop and a couple of recently finished cross stitch pieces.Hope you enjoy them. New knitting needles - spring tulips and "pairs" (rainbow and pot of gold - chicken and egg - cat and ball of yarn). Olde Colonial Designs has 2 new items - a sampler purse, you just do the stitching! and they have a sewing stand, it holds spools of thread and comes with the basket pincushion-you just stitch the top of the pincushion. We also have a little strawberry pincushion set - quick to stitch and finish. We even added the free silk floss to the kit for you!

Hope you enjoy the pictures - have a wonderful weekend!! Enjoy your stitching!!
Take Care,
Margaret and the gals at Cecilia's
