The Spring Custom Framing Special is coming to an end.

You still have time to take advantage of the Spring Custom Framing special that is now in progress at the shop. Tuesday (April 24th) is the last day to recieve 20% off your custom frame order so grab those photos, artwork or even stashed away needlework pieces and bring them in for framing. Are you currently working on a project that you know won't be finished in time for the framing special? Don't worry, another special will be held in the fall (sometime in October).

Here are some new designs that have been released (or coming soon) that you could have ready for the Fall Framing Special.

Here comes Peter Cottontail!

Hippity hoppity..Easter is almost here. Let the egg hunts begin! I wonder if the Easter Bunny would fill some plastic eggs with overdyed floss for me instead of chocolate. I could really use the floss more. Chocolate is great but I need to lose pounds not gain them. I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter. If you need a new project to work on after the holiday, check out these new and coming soon ideas.
