We have updated our What’s New page for you at http://houseofstitches.com/whatsnew.cfm. If you are stitching the Year in Chalk series; we now have May and June. For some reason, (Am I just too lazy to rethread my needle with a new color?) I seem to be stitching one color designs this year. The latest from Summer House Stitche Workes fills the bill nicely with three one color projects. Colonial Band Sampler from Sampler House is a newly released design that was formerly a class project. Sampler lovers will also want to see the two newest designs from Rosewood Manor. Mill Hill is continuing to prepare us for fall with the Hocus Pocus Trilogy of cute little witches on perforated paper. These little kits make great traveling projects!The fall Stitchers’ Day Out is officially on the calendar: September 12, 2015! We have a teacher: Lori Markovic from La-D-Da, a project: Havana Needlebook, a place: Blue Heron Inn, LaPorte, Indiana and a cost: $115.00. That price includes your class kit, instruction by Lori, lunch from the Blue Heron chefs and a day of fun and surprises! You can see the project and print the registration form here: http://houseofstitches.com/events.html. The photo really doesn’t show the beautiful shades of the Havana Brown Gloriana Silk. You will just have to come to the class and see for yourself! The class size is limited by the space that we have in the classroom so sign up soon!
We are also planning our Midwest Stash Exchange on August 15, 2015! This is a day when you can rent a booth to sell, trade or even give away your unwanted stitching stash. All of the proceeds from the booth rental fees will go to Riley Children’s Hospital Foundation. Stay tuned for further details and put in your request for a beautiful 75 degree day!
