Winter Garden Release

winter garden

Winter Garden is available starting today on the Needlework Online Show. I had so many stitchers request a continuation of Autumn Garden, so here is the next season. Like Autumn Garden, Winter Garden celebrates the colors of the season, in this case red, green and gold. The model is stitched over two on 30 count Ligonier Latte linen from R & R Reproductions using overdyed floss from The Gentle Art. My favorite part is the "Nordic Ribbon" border. I hope you enjoy stitching this fun little sampler. Spring is next, be looking for the chart to be release at Nashville in February.

The Needlework Online Show opens today, 20 October at 2pm EST and closes at midnight on 25 October. Here is the link. Browse through the General Viewing pages and note which designs you need to have, such as Winter Garden, and then let your favorite needlework shop know, so that they can place the order. There is also a list of the retail shops that are participating, in case you need to find a shop.

All my Best,

NorthCoast Tour de Stitch

Hi Friends!

If you live in Ohio or in a surrounding state, you are in luck this weekend. Five needlework shops have banned together to offer a "shop hop." They are offering door prizes, specially-designed needlework projects and trunk shows at each shop. My trunk show is on display at Just Stitching in Stongsville, Ohio. The other participating shops are: Clare's Stitching Post in Vermilion, Ohio, Craft Gallery in Findlay, Ohio, Crafty Ewe in Broadview Heights, Ohio and The Curiosity Shoppe in Oak Harbor, Ohio. For more information follow this link. Hope you are able to join the fun! My trunk show will be on display at Just Stitching until the end of October.

Keep Stitching!
