Kimberly Lost Her Marbles



Join us September 16 & 17th as Kimberly works her magic on the first of her Marble series of canvases. 

Oh My!  This is going to be so fun.  Great colors.  Great threads.  Great stitches and an imagination that only Kimberly has.  There are beads, there are bullions, there is string art and more!



Class will be 11-5 each day.  Lunch and desert will be provided.

Cost for the two day class is $295 plus the cost of the canvas ($180) and all necessary supplies.  A $250 non refundable deposit it required for sign up.

And just in case you want to see how magical this is.....





Oh my, it's magic.  Hope you can join us.  If you have to miss the party we can always send a kit.

You Asked For It

After many years of requests we have finally translated the 4 iStitches apps from the iOS platform to the android platform!  Let the happy dancing begin.

I'm quite excited to offer this.  There has always been the great divide between mac and pc.  Now for stitching at least, the divide is smaller.  :-)

There are 4 apps all with different stitches.  These are the same stitches as in my books.

Each app features:
  • 300 Stitches for needlepoint or any type of needlework and are arranged both Alphabetically and by Stitch Type: Straight, Diagonal, Crossed & Tied, Eye, Decorative or Darning Patterns.
  • Scroll through the stitch diagrams one at a time, use our handy indexes or search for a stitch by name.
  • Diagrams can be enlarged.


Here's the page on our website that houses all the links for all 4 apps on both platforms.  Click here iOS apps take you to the app store and Android apps take you to google play.

I'm curious to see how many android users are needlepointers vs iphone users.  Time will tell.

Have fun.  Now you can have your stitches with you 24/7 no matter which platform you prefer.

A Finished Blue Bird

As promised, our Blue Bird Mystery was a quickie.  Two short lessons with lots of fun stitches and it's complete.

I'm not sure what my favorite part was.  The flowers and leaves are long stitches, crescents and Raised Close Herringbone!  YAY!  quick and dramatic.



The fun shapes in the sky are composite stitches.  Layers of pattern.  Love that.



And then there's the wing!  Complete with fluffy feathers and beads.  Too sweet. 
 

All of those fun components came together to make this happy little bluebird.


The canvas is by ellen giggenbach and is now available as a complete kit.  If you would like a blue bird of your very own.  You can order it here, or just give us a call at 410.296.0405.

Next up in the Mystery Class class queue is Boo! by David Galchutt.  OMG its a fabulous canvas.  So many things we can do to make him fun!  Here's the link if you would like to join the party..... Boo!


More pretty stuff to follow
