I hope this letter finds you all doing well and looking forward to a fabulous Spring. February waved hello with a vengeance and then kept on going!!!!! We've got lots going on in the shop and I hope to get you all caught up.
Lots of new canvases have arrived this month and I of course have tons of new favorites:
$109 on 13 mesh $111 on 13 mesh
$232 on 18 mesh $185 on 13 mesh
$77 on 18 mesh $132 on 18 mesh $107 on 13 mesh $89 on 18 mesh
As many of you know the needlepoint world is still being seriously affected by the shipping industry, so I am thankful each time we receive an order from any of our vendors. If you see something fabulous, please don't hesitate to reach out. I am happy to find out a potential eta for you. Market is also coming up in May. It will be virtual, just like the fall market, but I am looking forward to seeing what new treasures my favorite artists are coming up with. As I have more information I will pass it on.
March brings in Judi and Co. The designs range from modern, Caribbean, fashion and everything in between. But they all have one thing in common - COLOR! Make sure to checkout her website and give the shop a call. All in stock canvases and orders are an additional 20% off.
We are also celebrating Tina Griffin Designs this month. She is most well known for her perfectly painted frames and fun embellishments. That zig zag design is calling my name!
She also loves a good bit of irony when it comes to her coasters too:
and so much more.

A big topic on everyone's mind these days is getting your pieces back in time for Christmas. Our current deadline for Christmas delivery is June 1, 2021. We are blessed to have so many stitching more than ever which is making our finishers busier than ever. Please be patient as they are working as fast as they can. We currently work with 3 regular finishers who get boxes monthly from us right now. The moral of the story is this - stitch fast and turn in early!
I hope you are all doing well and continue to keep on needlepointing. We have seen so many new to our favorite hobby or picking it back up after a hiatus. I love to see all the projects that have been pulled out of the closet for new threads. I really do eat, sleep and breathe needlepoint. Hope to see you all soon!
Until next time, Deb
