Long time, no update! Oh..... and 29% off.

Hello Stitchers! 

My apologies for the lack of updates.  Things have been crazy the last several weeks with my family and it's definitely getting in the way of my stitching time and newsletter writing time.  Things are headed in the right direction so back to business as usual and stitching of course. 

29% Off on Saturday, February 29th

Stop in Saturday to enjoy an extra day in February and a little extra discount.  The entire store will be 29% off from 10am-5pm.  You can also shop on our website and give us a call to take advantage of the discount. 630-946-6216.  The discount cannot be combined with reward coupons.  Additional exclusions apply - finishing, custom paint orders, previously special ordered merchandise, new special orders, trunk show canvases, sale canvases, sale threads, classes and private lessons.


February brought us Kathy Schenkel which is available through Friday at 12:00pm.  Check her website and give us a call if you want us to check our stock.

Market Requests:  The Spring Needlepoint Show was such a success last year that is back on the books this year for March 21-23rd.  Currently there are 118 vendors attending.  It should be quite a fantastic show.  If you have any requests please do not hesitate to send me an email.  It is the best way for me to know what you are all looking for.  Pictures and item numbers work best as it makes finding the item much quicker. If you have any questions about which vendor is attending please feel free to call the shop 630-946-6216 and I will check the list.  

Old Life, New Life:  Do you have a canvas that you love but the colors are outdated? Have decided that you like stitching with silk instead of wool?  Bring in your piece and we can help you find ways to make it updated.  Dottie, Nancy, Kim, Maryellen, Patty, Joanne (our newest needlepoint expert) and I all love to pull threads and will work with you to expand your talent and your knowledge. (And maybe even push your boundaries a little.) And if all you want to do is basketweave we can help you let the threads do all the talking. 

I hope you all have lots of time for stitching.  If you finished reading my whole newsletter please come in on Friday, February 28th or Tuesday, March 3rd and mention the 29% off sale.  You will be eligible for Saturday's discounts, but you must mention the newsletter.  Happy stitching and hope to see you all soon.
