Stitcher’s Workshop June, 2010 Newsletter

Saturday, June 5th, 2010

A change in schedule you need to know about. We will NOT be closed in June after all. A medical issue with Mr. D changed our plans so we’ll be here all month. Come see us! June’s 15th Anniversary Celebration special is one thread of your choice (limit $3.75 in stock thread) with every $25 thread order you place this month. Use this opportunity to try a new thread or fill in your collection.

 

Get your pieces together for our annual Christmas in July Customer Gallery. You remember all the beautiful pieces we had here last year. Many of you have completed lovely pieces that will be perfect for this show. Please have your pieces here by June 30. We’ll get them on the site by end of day, July 6 for the voting to begin! Remember there are great prizes for everyone who enters and for those who receive the most customer votes. First, Second, and Third Place prizes will be awarded.

 

We will be closed for the 4th of July holiday July 1 thru July 5 as we have two new great-grandsons to visit over the holiday. Can’t wait!

 

We’ve completed a couple more of the Lizzie Kate Painted Canvases. You can see them here or on the blog. Also finished another of the Collector Club canvases. These are both fun clubs to offer and to collect. Sign up today and you’ll receive a new kit each month (or every other month if you prefer) and unlike those who signed up early you shouldn’t have to wait for me to catch up!

 

New to the site this month, the Soie ‘d alger Thread of the Month Club is a great way to get this beautiful thread coming your way. This silk floss has a wide range of colors and three or more shades in each c! olor so creating beautifully shaded projects is easy. I’m wanting to add to the blue and white theme in my guest room and a lovely pattern for a vase that I’m converting to Soie ‘d Alger will be the perfect addition. Give this great thread a try, sign up here.  While you’re there check out the other great threads in our Thread of the Month Club.

 

Create your own charts using alphabets at this site. Enjoy!

 

Rhonda is going back to school this fall and her time to work will be limited so if you think you’d enjoy playing with the threads, seeing all the new charts as they arrive, working with people who love needlework as much as you do, and just being out of the house, give me a call. We’re looking for someone who’s interested in part time work so if you’d like a few hours a week, this job’s for you.

 

Thanks to a customer for a link to this site where you’ll find color listings for lots of the more common threads. Use the lists to help organize your stash. Click on the link to “Creating Order Out of Chaos” for great hints to get organized.

 

I know many of you enjoy surface embroidery as much as I do. Here you will find some awesome inspiration and great information. Even if you’re not crazy about crazy quilts and surface embroidery the site has a great stitch dictionary so check it out! You know we have all the threads you’ll need to create your special design.

 

 Enjoy!
