It is so exciting!  The 2019 Prairie Schooler Santa is here and look what he has. We knew they would give him a sheep someday.

 The weather people tell us it could happen  - summer may actually come.  We are searching for great beach and summer stitching projects and this is one of our favorites by Bobbi G Designs, Beach Ladies.  We have many charts featuring beach

scenes, bathing suits, boats and light houses.  I am so hopeful of some heat to warm these cold bones.  

We have 20% off our Miribilia and Victoria Sampler charts and thread packs at the present time. Drop in and visit to pick out a great summer stitching project.

Punch Needle Class

Potted Posies - Click Image to Close
We are obsessed with Punch Needle Embroidery at the moment.  Little House Needleworks have created several Punch Needle patterns in their collection and we have most of them here at the shop plus charts by other designers.  This is a fun and easy technique to learn.

We give classes here at the shop and our next one will be Saturday morning, June 1, 2019 at 10 am - 12 noon.  Cost of the class is $30 + gst.  The Ultra Punch needles are the ones we use and they now come in a package with three needle sizes, small, medium and large.  The cost of the needles are $44.25 + tax. If you already have a punch needle bring it to class instead of buying them.  See you soon.

Cottage Garden Samplings

This beautiful design from Cottage Garden Samplings called Merry and Bright is my current stitching project.  There are now 8 designs in the series, each featuring a different bird and words such as Hope, Courage, Love.  I guess I am looking forward to spring and waiting to hear all the songs of the little birds outside.  For now I will enjoy my Chickadee at the bird feeder and in my stitching chair.  We have most of the designs here so check it out.

Our Winter Sale is still on until the end of February as well as our Valentine Sale with some extra special discounts.  See you soon.

Stitching Clubs

This past week has been a disaster for most of the province of N.B. due to rain, freezing rain, snow and floods.  None of us are immune.  Maybe that is why the Maritime personality is gutsy and people hunker down and deal with the weather.  Our shop gave us some challenges too from trying to chip our way through the ice to enter the building and then on to a flood on Friday.  Well...………………..

We thought we would tell you about our clubs.  These clubs are free to attend and are a lot of fun.  Here goes....
