Needlepoint Now Magazine and Kreinik Announcement

We have received the March/April 2014 Needlepoint Now Magazine.  As always, there are some wonderful pieces with stitch suggestions to make them that much better.  I noticed a 3-dimensional Owl that I think would be a fun stitch-along.  I am checking on the prices now and will let you know.

Kreinik has announced that they will be cutting back on the manufacturing of certain colors.  Please note I did not say discontinuing.  They will be only producing in lots of 25 per color when they have orders that reach that amount   So to paraphrase when they are out of one of these colors they will not produce anymore until they have 25 orders for that particular color.  Also please note that these are older colors that they have not had a big demand for.  Here is  list of the colors that are effected.

In sizes  #4, 8, 12, 16, 24 and 32 Braids plus 1/16" and 1/8" ribbons:
