Upcoming Days At Stitcher's Treasures

     Since October is here tomorrow I thought it would be a good idea to let you know what will be happening in the upcoming month.
  1. Saturday, October 4th is our  Sampler Saturday.  Needless o say we are not very strict on what you stitch.  There are many descriptions for samplers and we will not judge what you want to consider a sampler.
  2. October 11th is our Stitch Day.  We, early birds, meet for breakfast at 8:30 am at the Golden Egg Omelet House and then on to the shop for stitching.  If you don't want to join us for breakfast we usually arrive at the shop just before opening at 10am.  We stitch until around 4:30pm.  It is a fun day of enjoyable conservation and stitching.
  3. October 18th is Nancy's Everything Class.  Nancy is here to help with all your stitching needs.  She can suggest threads and stitches to enhance you canvas.  Just need a bit of  help well this is the day to get undivided attention from a very wonderful teacher.  She is a very knowledgeable stitcher and is always willing to share that knowledge.
  4. October 25th is usually Dorothy's class but since she is unable to come down this weekend I will be teaching a piece that has 249 stitches in it.  A wonderful piece to learn onIt is called  Patchwork of Peace.   It is a flag and a good way to use up all the red, white and blue stash threads.  If you want to see a picture of the finished project on the class page.  Here is a link to it http://www.stitcherstreasures.com/mainpages/classes.htm.      
     The new Just Nan items should be arriving in the next few days.  If you haven't had a chance to see the go to out New Arrivals page and there is a slide show of the her new items and many others.

I'm including information about the new Lizzie Kate Mystery starting Nov. 3rd.  This kit will include the charts for 3 months and a bonus designs, threads and fabric.  The kit with the 28ct linen or 32ct linen the cost would be $78.70 and on 14ct or 16ct aida would be $72.20.  The design size is approx. 10.25 x 2.75 inches, there will be 3 inches on all sides.  There are 14 skeins of  Weeks Dye Works and one skein to be dyed just for this design and a very special embellishment pack. The additional release dates are Dec. 1st and Jan. 3rd.  If you want to participate let me know so that I order enough to cover everyone, I am including a couple pictures.

     I will be out of the shop the weekend of October 10th to the 13th as my grandson, Joshua is getting baptized and Jerry and I will be attending.  Beth will be here to help you with any of your needs.

Psst! I have a Secret

          A little birdie told me that the new Needlepoint Now magazine is going to have Raymond Crawford Halloween Train is going to be featured, with a stitch guide.  We had been contemplating doing this piece as a class, so here is a perfect opportunity for that.  Anyone of you who want to join in on this please let me know as I will be ordering the canvas by mid September.  Make sure you sign up if you want to be included in this.  If you don't live in the area we will be more than happy to provide you with canvas, magazine and the threads.  I don't have a complete cost yet.  The cost for the kit minus stretcher bars and teaching fee is $135.00.  Here is a picture of the three cars.

     The finishing dates for delivery before Christmas are ornaments, pillows and stand-up October 1st and stocking October 15th.

     I was given a link to a free chart from DMC and thought that you might like it.
