I am pleased to announce that Stitchers Garden will be hosting the "Silly Little Birds" club from Valerie Needlepoint Group. Scott Partridge has designed some great little birds and they easily finish into ornaments. Scheduled to begin mid-May, it isn't too late to sign up. Each canvas and stitch guide will be kitted with all necessary threads and embellishments. The first canvas in the series features two proud red Cardinals.
They really could not be cuter!
Open stitching is available whenever we are open. Come anytime Tuesday - Saturday from 10-5. The staff and I love to see all your projects and how they progress. May you all be blessed with lots of time to stitch and give us a call with any questions. 630-946-6216.
