Fun Stuff From Needlework Hideaway!

CORRECTIONS!!

My apologies to Pat Starks for spelling her name wrong and to Kathy Schenkel for giving credit for her design to A Collection of Designs. Don’t know wehre my brain went while I was working on this…

 

These pieces were finished by Pat Stark, a regular at Needlework Hideaway, after we had a talk about finishing and a demo of finishing needlepoint canvases. Isn’t it great when someone takes what you’ve shown them and creates such fun pieces!

Pat wanted a different finish for this cute little chick and the "Gift" finishing technique was just what she needed!

Luck ‘o the Irish is back! This year we’ll celebrate the 17th, 18th and 19th so make your list, place your order and we’ll have a customer in the shop pull your coin to discover the discount. Remember that discounts range from 15% to 50%  and last year an in-store customer pulled a 15% for herself and a 35% for the online order so come play with us, you may win big!

For those of you close enough to come visit, tea and scones, Celtic music and lots of great merchandise await you.  Everyone wins on this special weekend!

Even better, we have the Threaded Needle Designs trunk show here now. Tracey puts together kits for Ann Paxton, Deb Moffet-Hall, Chris Manes, and of course for Threaded Needle Designs. Lots of goodies in this show and several new kits and patterns. You’ll have to come see as I’ll be busy making scones and can’t be sure I’ll get all the new items on the website in time for the Luck ‘o the Irish! See what we already have online here.

As part of the Trunk Show we’ll be hosting an in-and-out class in beading. Just buy one of the kits, find a spot at the table, and we’ll help you get started learning the basics of beading! Price of the kit is cost of the class so you’ll never have a chance to learn that’s any less expensive than that! If you’ve looked at the beading things here in the shop and wished you knew how, take advantage of this great offer.

Needlework Hideaway is the 31st of March thru the 3rd of April so the shop will be closed March 31, April 1 and 2. I’ll be shipping all orders that come in during that time on April 4th.

A local customer is interested in setting up a Round Robin stitching group here in Union County area. If you want more information just call the shop or drop in and we’ll talk about it. A Round Robin is a fun way to meet new stitchers and receive a piece of needlework stitched by other stitchers to your specifications. You choose the theme and set the parameters, send off the piece and when you see it again it’s all stitched. You get to stitch on the pieces chosen by the others in your group so you have stitching opportunities different from what you might choose. I’ve participated in a couple of Round Robins in the past and had a great time with it. Call!

See you soon!
