Ahhh! the Weekend

Hello Stitchers,

I hope you all enjoyed your weekend and are feeling refreshed and ready to face this new week of "shelter at home".  I'm not sure if we will be done with this "crazy" any time soon. There hasn't been much flattening going on in Illinois and I'm really not sure if we will be released at the end of the month as hoped. 

Today, Grace and I moved the front of the store around and there is more to finish tomorrow.  I think I might have "broke" her today.  The good news is that she will be back tomorrow ready to work and pick some new Daily Specials for you all to take advantage of.  Why are we moving the store around you ask?  WE ARE KEEPING THE SOY LUSTER!  I just love the way it stitches!  It has a beautiful hand and weight very similar to Caron's "Impressions" - 1 to 2 strands on 18 mesh depending on your preferred level of coverage.  The colors are fantastic and their are so many choices for overdyes.  This soysilk thread has 36 yards a skein and retails for $5.55


I can't wait until you can come in and touch and see it for yourselves! 

Lots of you have taken advantage of our Alice Peterson trunk show.  Keep the orders coming!  Today's feature is her HOME series.  Whichever place means home to you, these are just lovely.


Painted on 13 mesh, 16.25" x 6.75", $173, with trunk show discount $138.40

Lots of packages went out today and lots of threads got pulled.  I will be so happy when you all can come in and participate.  It's so much more fun with two!  I can't thank all of you enough.  I am ordering from at least one of your favorite designers every day.  If you see something on Facebook or Instagram please don't hesitate to let me know. 

Stay safe, keep stitching and let's hope you can all pay a visit soon!  Deb
