What's New At Stitcher's Treasures

I actually started this post last week and got bogged down with what to say.  This week I have no

First at 9:09 am our Granddaughter presented us with our first Great-Granddaughter.  Her name is Elayna and she weighed it at 4 lb 13 oz and is 18 inches long.  So the joy all those years with children has just tripled with the Great-Grandchild era.  I am not sure how I feel about it 'cause I don't feel old enough to be in this era.  I am elated to have a new gift from God in our family and I pray for the new family beginning their lives together.

We have had the good fortune of acquiring an abundance of canvases.  Most of them are up on the website for you to peruse.  They are from many different designers i.e. Melissa Shirley, Danji, Alexa, Associated Talents, etc. and some of  them are on the 50% sale page.  Time to take advantage of the fun canvases that we have.

I have also have decided to discontinue the Anchor #5 & #8 Pearl Cotton.  This was very difficult decision as I have always liked the Anchor fibers.  Since they decided to discontinue #12 and #3 and some of the colors in #8 and #5, I feel it is better to provide you all with the matching colors across all the sizes and I can do that with DMC.  So we are bringing in those in #3, #5, #8 and #12. It will take a bit of time to do all of that but if you come in and we don't have a color you want, we will order it and fill in the line as soon as we can.  We have already made a good dent into the collection!

The Second in the Hanukkah Series has arrived and we have one more spot open if you want to join the club.  The canvases are $55.00 per month for the next 7 months plus the first 2 that are already out. When finished you can also purchase an amazingly beautiful wooden Menorah with dowels for the finished needlepoints.  Here is a picture of the finished Menorah.

We will be starting on the Raymond Crawford Halloween Train on February 21st.  I am so looking forward to the start of this project.  Nancy has done a wonderful job on her rendition of  the project that was shown in the Needlepoint Now Magazine.  If you want to join us please let me know as I am in the process of ordering the threads and the remainder of the canvases needed.  It will be a fun class.  

In March we will be offering the Puzzle Purse by Jean Hilton,  It can be done as a purse or as a flat piece that can be made into a picture or a pillow. Here is a picture of  the one done flat.  The purse model is still in the works.  So stay tuned.

We will be offering six seasonal baskets through The Artists Collection.  We are going to start this group the end of April with the summer basket.  It will be done every other month and that will give you the ability to finish it before the next season arrives.  They are small pieces and easy to complete.  Here is a link to the page that the information is on for this club: http://stitcherstreasures.com/mainpages/stitchers_sorority/seasonal_baskets.htm .

We have done some remodeling in the shop and added some trellis to help accommodate the additional canvas that are here and the others that will be arriving soon.

Well that is it for now.  Come by and see us soon.

Happy Stitching,
