Midwest Stash Exchange 2013

Last Saturday was our Midwest Stash Exchange and fundraiser for Riley Children's Hospital.  We had loads of fun and by all indications, those who attended did, too.  There was a whole lot of stash being exchanged with many happy stitchers finding special treasures!  The weather was beautiful (just look at that blue sky) and many people came to help raise money for a very worthwhile cause.  Here are a couple of pictures of the fun.  The picture above shows some of the stash tables and the one below shows the food table and prize table.  The red buckets were for the prize drawings.  We will continue to take donations until Labor Day weekend if you would like to contribute.  We also still have some bags of delicious kettle corn available. It is a perfectly blended sweet and salty snack. I cannot resist it!
I had some very exciting news today! There are 16 new colors coming from DMC! The collection features eight soft, natural shades and eight bright, vibrant hues. All 16 colors are available exclusively in a convenient, clear plastic pack. They say they will begin shipping at the beginning of October, so my guess is that we will see them in time for trick or treat! For some reason new releases always take longer than predicted. I will let you know when they arrive. Pre-orders are welcome!
