Happy 10th Anniversary to Cecilia's Samplers

January 28, 2013  -  It is 72 degrees and sunny here in Branson!!! Can you believe it!!We have been very fortunate to be having a mild Winter here in Branson. We all hope that you have had a good New Year and that 2013 will be a great year for you.

We are planning an exciting year at Cecilia's - 2013 is our 10th year of being in the needlework business. We plan to be celebrating all year - sales - giveaways and lots of fun!We are LOVING meeting new people and being able to welcome them to our shop, website and retreats. It doesn't seem like 10 years has gone by..........but here we are. And just to dispel any rumors that have been spreading around.......WE ARE NOT GOING OUT OF BUSINESS!

We have so many new goodies for you to see!!! Several automatic going - some monthly, some 3 part , and of course if there is a favorite designer - we can automatically ship all of their new designs to you. We can customize each shipment to your specifications. We have the Blue Ribbon Designs Mystery Sampler - Blue Jeans and Daisies ( I am stitching that one!), Lizzie Kate Jingles (Jessie is stitching that!), Country Cottage Santa's Village, and Little House has 2 series going - The Sheep Virtues (another one for me to stitch) and a Hometown Christmas series with no end in sight - it will last as long as Diane keeps designing!!

We have also gotten many beautiful yarns in the shop - Pam and I were left alone with our yarn reps - like leaving a kid in a candy store -  we are FULL of so many wonderful yarns -different fibers, lots of free patterns, and gorgeous  colors!! Amy, Pam, and Cecilia are having way too much fun with the yarns!! I actually made a felted purse for myself, my first felted project. It was really fun to combine yarns and see the felted result - so pretty!!!

Jessie has been doing some beaded Mill Hill Kits..........she enjoyed doing the beading and they came out really nice!!! Now she is starting on the Lizzie Kate Jingles series........We'll have pictures as soon as she gets going with it.

We are working on our Winter Wonderland Retreat that we will be having next month......then the week after that Jessie and I are off to market in Nashville. If there is anything you would like us to pick up for you , just let us know.

I am going to add some pictures and get back to work...........have a good day!! And take some time to stitch!!

Take Care,
Margaret, Jessie, Amy, Pam, Ann, Krista and Cecilia
