My apologies to the stitchers for the quality of the photos.  I have a good bit of trouble with the photos of pieces under glass because of our lights here in the shop.

Please note, we are working to get more information about the designers and will update as that information becomes available. If you recognize a piece be sure to let us know.

January, 2011 Newsletter

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

We had so much fun last year with the 15th Anniversary Celebration I thought we would try another monthly theme. For January all in stock Just Nan products are on sale 20% off. Purchase the materials you need to complete the designs at the same time and you’ll get 20% off that as well! Just let us know in the notes section of the shopping cart that you want us to kit the pieces you choose and we’ll let you know the cost before shipping. I’ve just gone through the shop, pulled all the Just Nan so it’s right up front for the local shoppers and made sure that everything on the website is in stock. We do have a limited number of most of the designs so shop early because we’ll be pulling them off the site as they sell out. Here’s a hint, type Just Nan in the search window as she has some beautiful charms as well as the leaflets, you won’t want to miss those.

If you enjoy seeing unusual applications of needlework you’re going to enjoy looking at the Crochet Coral Reef Be sure to click on the video to hear all about how this amazing project came into being.

I am hoping to post more often to this blog this year and to share what I’m working on with all of you. Please feel free to comment on any posts you see here. I finished this piece on January 1, 2011. Sure would like to finish something every month this year!

This time of year most people decide to work on getting organized. If you’re one who makes that decision, you’ll get help cataloging your stitching books at Library Thing. This site is good for anything in your library, just be sure to save some stitching time as well.

Now some not so great news! New pricing on DMC products beginning February 1. We are 10¢ below suggested retail on floss now but with the increase we’re not going to be able to stay at 49¢ so order now if you need floss.  DMC Perle #3 and #5 will increase from $1.39 to $1.45 which will affect the kits for the From Nancy’s Needle designs as well so take a look at all of those and make your choices while you can get them for the current price.

Just so we don’t end on that note,  I found a beautiful new free chart from Passione Ricamo that I think you’ll like. Click here and download the chart.

Scroll on down to see the winner of the Ornament Design Contest, it’s incredible! And, the kit will be ready soon so you can create one for yourself. You’ll find the Kreinik  Finishing Kit on the Fabric (kit with silk gauze) page or the Finishing (kit without the silk gauze) page.

Until next time, keep stitchin’ and come see us!

March 2010 Newsletter

Tuesday, March 16th, 2010

Wow, has the time gotten away from us, thanks to you this has been a super busy first of the year for Stitcher’s Workshop.

As a result this note is a couple of weeks late and for that I apologize! However, since we missed out on the beginning of our March 15th Year Celebration, we’re going to extend the Luck ‘o the Irish event for the entire rest of the month. St. Patrick’s Day is the kick-off and, just as we do every year, we’ll have tea and scones all day tomorrow and our Pot ‘o Gold for you to choose your discount. Remember you could receive anywhere from 10% to 50% off your purchases all day the 16th. Just make you selections and pick a coin from the Pot ‘o Gold and you’ll receive the discount you find there. This event extends to our online customers as well, so make your choices, submit your order and we’ll have a customer in the shop when we receive the order pull your coin. You get the discount shown!  

Because this is such late notice we will be extending the discount every Wednesday for the rest of the month! No tea and scones I’m afraid but the Pot ‘o Gold stays on the desk until the end of the month! Just make sure to shop on Wednesday!

Have you tried YouTube yet? I was curious so I typed Needlepoint in the search window and found tons of interesting videos on needlepoint. If you type in needlework stitches you’ll find everything from Continental Stitch to knitting stitches. You might want to take a little of what you see with a grain of salt but for the most part I was really impressed with the information.

Another cool place to visit online is the ThreadworX site where you can see an awesome color card of their threads and sign up for their newsletter packed with good information and fun projects. Just click on the Join button in the upper right corner of the home page and you’ll be directed to the sign ! up page.

Needlework Hideaway is coming up soon. I leave for the Red Apple on Thursday, March 25 for a fun filled weekend of stitching, food, stitching, friends, stitching… You get the idea. We still have room but if you’re planning to attend call now as I’m making the last minute reservations.

New From Nancy’s Needle designs are on the Counted Canvas page. Just click on Small Monthly Quilt Series and then on Quilt Series to see her newest designs. Want it easy? Just type New in the Search Engine.

Also, new colors from Caron Collection in both Watercolours and Wildflowers! Sign up today for the Caron Thread of the Month Club and collect all these beautiful threads! Find them here.

Until next time, keep stitching,

Welcome to Rhonda’s Corner.  Here we are going to post what Rhonda’s working on fairly regularly. Check back often because she gets a LOT of stitching done so you’ll see something new every week.

Today she brought in her completed Autumn Maples, a new design by From Nancy’s Needle, all ready to finish up! Looks like she’ll frame this one so check back for the framed photo.
