Curios...a Mystery Class

 
Registration is officially open for this year's online Curios Mystery Class. It's through Shining Needle Society - if you're not a member of SNS, you can join for free at Shining Needle Society.  Above is a tiny part of my stitching - Waffles and Pinwheels, two of my favorite stitches!

You don't have to be a member to register for class - we can take care of getting you signed up for membership along with your registration -- just be sure to let me know you're "new"! I appreciate the people who've already registered - I can tell you the Mountain Haze and Turquoise Trail colorways are running neck and neck, followed closely by Prickly Pear. Along with Kelsch, the new Watercolours are very popular! Because of the numbers and all my travel in the next couple of months, I'll be ordering threads in "batches" to make kits ahead of time - I'll be shipping kits in the order people sign up so don't wait til the last minute, especially if you're requesting a drawn canvas. I'm already starting to draw them and they take a lot longer than last year's!

I decided to call the design "Curios" as the stitches fill the rectangular spaces that were inspired by a curiosity cabinet. I often struggle with naming a design so it's a relief to have finally decided on the title. I'm happy I've had positive feedback and appreciate the people who've told me they liked the name.




For people who've been interested in my "Serenity" class, I'll be teaching at Kelsey's Needle Krafts on March19-20. I'm looking forward to going to Northern Californian again - I spent a lot of time there with friends when I was in college in San Diego so it feels like going "home". I'll also be teaching at the end of September at Needle in a Haystack in Alameda, Ca - classes TBA.

Until next time (I'll soon be showing you my new releases for Nashville!)

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.
