I am having so much fun stitching these wonderful designs….I keep wanting to do just one more! There are 13 in all- a bakers dozen of Bejeweled Bargello. In the stitch guide, you have the choice between the colors you see here or more traditional Christmas colors, or, choose your own combinations.  These will be my 2019 (can you believe it) NP ornaments.  Call the shop to sign up…you will receive a new one every month.  The chart is $25.00, the price of supplies varies every month depending on which fibers are used.  If you need a little help I’ll be in the shop the second Thursday night of the month to get you started…5-7.  See you soon….

These are some of the wonderful new ideas we have for up coming clubs and classes…
We’ll do the Spring canvases and the Halloween canvases once a month starting in January.
These wonderful canvases are so whimsical, they are also really fun to do.  The prices will vary depending on the threads and “do-dad” used in each one.  These classes are also fun to do as clubs.  We will mail you your kit every month.  Any questions on the stitching…you are welcome to call me in the shop and I’ll be happy to walk you through it.

I Heart Your Heart!  This wonderful canvas has been a joy to work on!  Just about the time you get bored with an area, it’s time to move on.  It would make a great Wedding Sampler, but we thought it would be fun to take the class with some special friends.  Each of you working on your “own” heart on each others canvas.  That way you will have a little of each of your friends “heart” on your finished canvas.  -  Or you can just “do it yourself” and have fun with it.
I think two classes will be the best, so in honor of Valentines Day the first class will be February 12th and the second will be one month later, March 16th.  I’m still working on the details, but will post the prices as soon as I can.  If you decide to do this as a club with your friends…treat it like a book club and use it as a chance to get together with your favorite people once a month!

Hope these classes “tickle your fancy”…..see you soon!
