Fun stuff in February

Hello fellow Stitchers,

I hope you are all doing well and have had lots of time to stitch during these snowy days.  I just heard this morning that Las Vegas received 2" of sticking snow.  I think Mother Nature is NOT happy with someone for sure!  And here in Naperville we are expecting more snow and ice tomorrow.  I am so ready for Spring! 

If you haven't stopped in lately I hope to see you soon.  We have lots of new canvases just waiting to be stitched.  We did not attend the winter market in Portland, but are still reaping the benefits with lots of new items coming in daily.  I will be attending the Spring Show in Orlando at the end of March so if you see anything you would like me to bring back please call the shop 630-946-6216 or send us an email.  It seems that this new show will be on the same level as Dallas which means lots of new goodies and some great bargains returning with me.

Here are a a few of our newest arrivals from A Poore Girl Paints:

And this is one of my personal favorites: 

We are also introducing a new designer from "The Collection".  Paul Brent represents life at the shore in such a fantastic way it's hard to resist. 

Trunk Shows:

February brings Raymond Crawford to the Garden.  His trains are so much fun and can be framed, finished as standups or fabulous pillows for Christmas.

There are lots of options for ornaments too:


March:  Mary Englebreit and lots of cuteness!

Check out the website and if there is anything you would like from the line, please let us know.

April:  A Poore Girl Paints which is one of my personal favorites.  Lots of ornaments and funny signs.


May:  CBK and Rachel Donley

June: Valerie Needlepoint Gallery

As always, all instock trunk show pieces will receive a 20% discount.
