Sometimes you just have to punt!

Hello Stitchers!  

It is slowly starting to warm up in Naperville which is making me want to start a NEW project!  My New Year's resolution was a promise to myself that I would work on a "one in after one out" but boy is it hard!  (Especially given that we are still getting in new designs from the November market - see below.)

But why do I have to punt you might be wondering - our "Once in a Blue Moon" trunk show has been delayed for a couple of weeks! Although it is frustrating it led to a great suggestion from Dottie.  Many of you are fans of our custom wooden laying tools, but you might not know he has a lot more to offer.  We will be hosting a pop shop featuring all his fabulous designs starting March 12 thru March 26.  Watch for more pictures to come, but below is a sneak peek.  

Large needle minders, Wine Stoppers and small needle minders.

 Wooden BLT (Best Laying Tool)  Stitch Rip


And Lots of Laying Tools with matching needle minders!  And wine and bottle openers

And don't worry, "Once in a Blue Moon" is still coming, just a bit later.  Watch our Instagram and Facebook for its arrival.  If you are looking for a specific design, please send an email or call the shop and we will put it on our request list. We will pull it before it reaches the floor and get back to you right away.

Make sure to check out her website for your favorite.


Linda Corirossi is back and ready to help you bring your canvas to life!  Our regularly scheduled mini sessions are set to resume Thursday, April 7th.

Sessions run 10am - 12pm or 1pm - 3pm
Cost per session is $30, with payment due at the time of class.

The dates for the next few months are as follows:

April 7, 2022
April 21, 2022
May 5, 2022
May 19, 2022
June 2, 2022

Please call the shop 630-946-6216 or send us an email to sign up.


Do you have a canvas that you just want to be fabulous, and you don't know where to begin?  Or maybe you just want to upgrade your stitch repertoire? Linda Corirossi's 3-day class is the perfect solution! 

You supply the canvas (due by May 5th), and she supplies the stitch guide and lots of inspiration.  I can say from personal experience you will learn more than just stitches in your personal stitch guide.  During the 2021 class our students (myself included) learned many new ribbon, bead and stitch techniques. Take a look at what we learned last year.


Here are the details:

Dates:  June 24 (Friday), 25 (Saturday), 26 (Sunday), 2022
Time:  10am - 4pm
Cost: $275 includes lunch and a 5-page stitch guide. (Additional pages are a separate charge.)  
Canvas due by May 5th.  

We still have a few spots left if you are interested and want to join us for this fabulous stitching opportunity. 

Please call 630-946-6216 or email with any questions.
And just for fun here are some of our latest arrivals:




These last three are my newest favorites and would be absolutely perfect for class!

Stay tuned for more details about "Once in a Blue Moon's" arrival.  Until next time, Deb
