New Class, New Releases & More

I'm excited to announce I am offering a new class through Shining Needle Society. Enrollment is now open. The Official Announcement has all the details and photos of the additional colorways I created. Here is my completed piece.
It was so fun I've started another in the Confetti colorway - I haven't gotten too far yet. I've just been stitching it during my breaks from instruction writing because I can't think about designing anything new yet!
Patterns for my new releases are at the printer - WooHoo! Now onto the instructions for class pieces! I'm now taking pre-orders for the three designs I'm releasing later this month - Autumn Logs, Bora Bora, and Color Delights - Mint. Here are photos in case you missed them!  Order Now to be the first to receive them!
Autumn Logs
Bora Bora
Color Delights - Mint
Do you know about the Color Delights Club? You can join anytime. As a member of the Color Delights Club, you automatically receive Color Delights kits as new designs are released. There are two options - Option 1: New Titles Only (1 per quarter) or Option 2: Get one kit per month (Colors Previously released; your choice or mine) will be sent in the months there are not a new Color. Members of the Club receive a complete kit (pattern, canvas, and threads) for $28 plus S&H. This is a savings of $4-7 per kit. This is a great way to try new stitches, get a fun pattern which can be used in a multitude of ways, and collect a fantastic assortment of different threads. If you already have some of the patterns, we will make sure you don't get duplicates.
Speaking of Color Delights...DeAnn from Louisiana sent me a couple of photos - here's 12 of the Color Delights framed together in one frame (Rose, Violet, Bubblegum, Wisteria, Cobalt, Aqua, Chartreuse, Sunshine, Shamrock, Tangerine, Magenta, & Fire). I love seeing combinations of them!
She also sent her version of Rainforest Crunch which hangs in her beach house - don't you love the starfish on it?! What a great addition! Love her color choices too...
If you have photos you'd like to share on my blog, send them to me and I'll happily post them here!


  1. Love the class piece and was thinking about signing up for the earthy colorway. Autumn Logs is also a must stitch!

New Releases for Nashville Market

February is one of the craziest months as the Nashville wholesale market is the first weekend in March. For the first time ever, I had completed stitching all of my designs by the end of December and managed to eke out a new Holiday Delights in January! I felt great being ahead of the game but after finishing the stitching, there's the instruction writing, printing, stuffing thousands of patterns into plastic bags (I do have help, thank goodness!), communicating with my shops and distributor, packing the models and patterns to travel to market, and more boring but oh so necessary administrative details. 
Did I say I love this time off year?! I really do as I look forward to market like a fabulous dessert - I get to see all my shopowner friends and other designers. We all generally work our fingers to the bone while having a fabulous time with some belly laughs and the promise of delightful sales.
At this point, you're thinking, enough, show us the new designs - here they are! Yo…

More Serenity and something new...

I'm so pleased to show you photos of some of my students' work! They've had such fun stitching Serenity and several have completed it. It's such fun to see the different colorways come to life! First up is Pam B's - it's called "Flowers of Italy". She was clever and added her initials to the piece - can you find them?! Next is Highland Garden - it was one of the most popular colorways! And here's Arnhem Heath, the ever popular purple and green! 

I'll be teaching this project at Needle in a Haystack in Alameda, CA next month - if you're wanting some Serenity, come join us. You can see all the info here.
