24 Days

Happy almost College Football Season!  As most of you know I am a huge Husker Fan and with 24 days until the season starts I can hardly contain myself. (Soon my Saturday wardrobe will consist of nothing but red and black for game day!) Go Big Red!

Now down to business:


August is a big month and there are lots of choices!  J. Child Designs features tons of beach and baby designs.  Many of her designs are on 13 mesh making for a super quick stitch.  Picture frames and eyeglass cases are obviously some of her favorite finishing ideas.

Mile High Princess is best known for their santas, snowmen and Halloween designs has just too many to show.  We have lots of finished models to look at for inspiration and their are many choices that come with stitch guides.

Whimsy and Grace Stars galore have arrived along with scissor cases, needle books, eye glass cases, and pillows! Stop in to see the most stunning tree toppers and most are stitched in simple basketweave and beads.
