Happy Winter, NOT!

Hello fellow Stitchers!

I'm just going to start out by addressing the elephant in the room-WINTER SUCKS! (Sorry for the language Mom, but it does!)  It is currently -2 degrees with the wind chill in Chicago and they keep telling us the arctic vortex is only going to get worse.  What even is an arctic vortex? 

Now with that out of the way......In an effort to keep us thinking of Spring, all our bright and sunny florals and happy animal canvases are on SALE! All in-stock canvas with flowers, plants, or animals are 20% off.  There are a few exclusions and some exceptions- Christmas, signs, sale items and special orders are not included.  Other than that, the canvas boards hold lots of treasures.  Below are just a few:

Trunk Shows: 

This month we are hosting Julie Mar & Friends.  There are tons of different styles and something for everyone.  She also has recently taken on the job of representing Unique NZ Designs, a designer from New Zealand.  Lots of fun designs which will invoke your memories of warm weather (are you catching on to the theme here).  All trunk show canvases will receive a 20% discount at the time of purchase. Check out their website and give us a call if you see anything that warms your heart.

February Trunk Show:  Raymond Crawford will be arriving in early February to tempt your needlepoint stashes. Check out his website and let us know if there is something you would like us to request.

March: Mary Englebreit
April: A Poore Girl Paints
May:  CBK, Rachel Donley
June:  Vallerie Needlework Group/Amanda Lawford
