Summer is almost here!

The Memorial Day holiday is this weekend and the heat has decided to come and help celebrate. This is great for those who enjoy being outside in the 90+ degree heat. I will spend some time outside but I really dislike hot and humid weather so I will spend more time inside trying to catch up on my stitching. For those of you who also want a break from the heat and need something new to stitch, check out some of the most recent designs that have come in and a few that are on the way.

The "MYSTERY" continues!

In the last blog, I posted lots of information about the new mystery sampler from Lizzie Kate. At the time however, I had no idea about the pricing....but I do now! So for those who are interested, here's the deal......

The total cost is $94.00 this includes:
  • 3 charts
  • a piece of linen for the main design
  • 3 smaller pieces of linen for the bonus designs
  • Weeks Dye Works thread pack (which has 19 skeins of floss including a mystery color)
IF you sign up for the entire sampler (all 3 charts, fabric and thread pack), you will receive a 10% discount which would make the total $84.60. If you want to have it mailed, shipping and handling will be $3.75 for the first shipment and $2.75 each for the 2nd and 3rd shipments. Also, when you order, please specify what count fabric you would prefer... 30ct. or 35ct. (price is the same for either).

If you have any questions, please call or email the shop and they will be glad to help you.

Here are some new designs coming soon to the shop!

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.

check out the small snippet of the "mystery sampler"

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.
