Our Midwest Stash Exchange fundraiser for Riley Hospital for Children is only a few days away! I hope you are able to join us! In addition to the booths filled with stitching stash we will be raffling two framed needlework designs, a Liberty Hill folk art wall box called Halloween Jack, a 50/50 raffle and more! Our favorite scissor sharpener will be on site to expertly sharpen your favorite scissors while you shop! He has very reasonable rates ranging from $4.00 to sharpen embroidery scissors to $8.00 to sharpen pinking shears. He will also do knives for between $4.00 and $7.00. The weather sounds like it will be perfect! There will be additional parking in the gravel lot across Oregon street and on State Street behind the store. The kids from ATA Martial Arts will be selling hot dogs, chips and soft drinks so you can keep up your strength while you shop. I am sure that I am forgetting to tell you something so feel free to phone or email if you have questions.
Our What’s New page has been updated with our latest arrivals. You can see them at https://www.houseofstitches.com/whatsnew.cfm. It includes two new Letters From Mermaids by Nora Corbett (Mirabilia), and Lesson Two in the Lessons in Abecedarian Summer Schoolhouse series from With Thy Needle and Thread. Prairie Schooler fans will be happy to see two more reprinted charts. Needle Bling and Pickle Barrel continue with more of their small monthly designs. Another cute black cat design is available from Kit and Bixby. Lila’s Studio finishes the Seasons series with Autumn and Winter.
Thank you for continuing to stitch and shop at House of Stitches! We appreciate your continued business.
