New fall projects!

We have new things for you to see at http://houseofstitches.com/whatsnew.cfm.  There are new charts from Barbara Ana, Cricket Collection, Heart’s Content, Sue Hillis, With Thy Needle and Thread and more!
Several of you have asked us about Classic Colorworks floss.  Crescent Colours was sold to Ronnie Williams and the new company name is Classic Colorworks. The colors and color names are the same as Crescent Colours so they may be used interchangeably.  (However, the usual dye lot differences in hand-dyed threads can still come into play.)  In other needlework news, we have learned that Prairie Moon will no longer be designing. So, if there are Prairie Moon charts that you want, do not delay!  We have already sold out of some of them!
We are excited to have so many of you signing up for our March Weekend of Stitches!  If you are interested, you can see the project and get the registration form at http://houseofstitches.com/events.html.  Start making plans to be a part of the fun!
Today we had rain, then sun then more rain.   When we looked out the shop's back door during the sunny moments, this tree was glowing against the dark blue sky and was reflected in the pavement.  I hope fall weather lasts a very long time!  We are not speaking of what comes next!

New designs!

Autumn is upon us in Indiana!  The trees are turning every fall shade you can imagine and for the most part, they are still on the trees so we can enjoy them without all of the raking.  At least not yet!  Many of our new arrivals have an autumn or Halloween theme so you can stitch in the current season.  How does that work for those of you in the southern hemisphere?  Are you more inspired to stitch things in pretty pastel spring colors?  You can see our newest designs at http://www.houseofstitches.com/whatsnew.cfm.   If you like seeing the pictures all at once, go to our catalog http://www.houseofstitches.com/search.cfm and type oct14a in the keyword box.  You will see a thumbnail size picture of each design.  Click on any that you would like to see in more detail.

While you are cruising around our website, be sure to click on the Events button, http://www.houseofstitches.com/events.html , to see the project that Betsy Morgan will be teaching for us in March, 2015. It is a great project and I hope that you can join us!
