To start, a quick reminder that the shop will be closed Thursday, Friday and Saturday this week for the July 4th holiday. We’ll be back in the shop on July 6th.
Check out the blog as we have a couple of new posts. One is an announcement from the Royal School in London that you’ll want to hear about, especially if you love to design. The other isĀ a photo of a customer’s work mounted in one of Mr. D’s trays. We’ve put the tray on the website so take a look, it’s the perfect finish for your special project.
New Lizzie Kate and Sweetheart Tree charts and kits are here. I’m working now to get them on the site and hope to have them there by the time you get this. If you don’t see them check back as I’m typing like mad!
Don’t forget the Customer Gallery and the Christmas in July celebration all of July. A customer from Shreveport was in recently and asked about entering the Customer Gallery online so we’re making a slight change in the program. We’ll kick off the Gallery on the 10th of July to give you time to get things here if you’re close enough to do that or get a photo to us for the Online Gallery if you’re not. Please send you photo in .jpg or .gif format and include the design name, designer, and chart publisher if applicable. Tell us anything you can about when you stitched it, changes you made, how it was finished, etc… Once the pictures are up I’ll send a note explaining how to vote for your favorite piece. We’ll have gifts for everyone who participates whether with a piece in the shop or a photo online. Thanks for the suggestion, Linda!
Many have asked about the technique of Laying Threads. I just found a great page online that clearly explains the technique. Take a look at http://www.lkreinmiller.com/ heartwork/ Tech/laying For some reason I’m having trouble with this link. If you cannot click on it just copy and paste into your browser window to get to the diagrams.
This month’s 15th Year Anniversary special is 10% off on any Christmas themed project you purchase. Save the most by buying the chart, threads, and fabrics all at once to get the discount on all!
Enjoy the holiday and come see us soon!
