Thoughts for August 31, 2012
It’s ‘Back to School’ season. If you have a school-age child or grandchild, no matter what age, check out our sweater, school-colors hat, fun socks, etc patterns. The good news is that 7 year olds – teens will enjoy your creations longer than the fast-growing babies!
Can you believe this? We are getting ready to celebrate our 4 year anniversary!! Please help us celebrate by enjoying new and classic products, participating in class offerings, and attending our Birthday party in mid-September. More details later. We thank you so much for being part of our family.
Exciting needlepoint news!
We would like to officially welcome and introduce Barbara as our new needlepoint employee. She brings years of needlepoint and art experience to the needlepoint nook as she kits projects and leads the monthly club meetings. She is a member of the Charlottesville Needlepoint Guild and she knits!
Many of you have seen or stitched our 2 sided-clip-on “Roanoke Squirrel” designed by Labors of Love. We are thrilled to announce that together we have created an exclusive “Woodland Animal” series beginning with the squirrel and followed by a darling bunny in his cabbage patch. Watch for our ad in the Fall issue of Needlepoint Now and the release of the new critters. Stitch guides and threads will be available as kits for all the animals.
