Do you like a good MYSTERY?

Remember when With Thy Needle created a 3-part mystery sampler? Well, Lizzie Kate has teamed up with Norden Crafts and created their own "Mystery". This mysterious sampler will have a Halloween theme featuring favorite fall motifs such as; pumpkins, candy corn, sunflowers, blackbird, black cat, acorns, haunted house and leaves. It will be revealed in 3 parts (the 1st part in June, the 2nd in July and the 3rd in August). All three designs will fit together to form a tall, spooky piece. Each chart will come with it's own embellishments and a bonus design. To keep the mystery, there will not be a project photo on the cover.

Weeks Dye Works is even releasing a new floss color exclusively for the mystery sampler. In order to receive this color (and finish the mystery), you must order the thread pack for the sampler. The pack includes 19 skeins of Weeks Dye Works threads (one is the new color). The fabric being used is a 30ct. Weeks Dye Works linen. The color is unknown and will remain a mystery until the first part releases. However, we have heard that the color is bright and easy to stitch on. The stitch count for the main design is 95w x 238h and each bonus design will have a stitch count of 50w x 50h.

This sounds like a really fun project and there should be enough time to have it ready for Halloween. Let the shop know if you would like to sign up for this mystery sampler and also let us know if you would like the thread pack and fabric for it. Remember, one color in the thread pack is only available in the pack and will not be available individually until September. To help with ordering, please let us know if you are interested by June 1st. Thanks!

Wow, that is a lot of info. But guess what? I have more new designs to share.

This cute needle is great for picking out stitches when you make a mistake
 (of course, stitchers never make mistakes).


If you need a last minute gift for MOM,
a Stitch and Frame Shop gift certificate would be a great idea!

Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful Mom's
