Time for a "News Update"

Hey stitchers!  I don't want you to miss the Needle Deeva Trunk Show! This is going back next week so this is the last weekend to rush in and save up to 20% off any of their painted canvases.  This has been a very popular trunk show but the Deeva sent hundreds of canvases so there are still lots here.  I'm glad you guys are loving this.  If you ever want a particular trunk show because you're in love with the designer, let me know!  I'm open to suggestions.  Sometimes what stops me is the minimum they have but I can always ask if there's interest.  

More finishes by ME!

Don't faint when I tell you that I've finished my Melissa Shirley bird house!  It will go to the framer shortly and then hang in the store for all of us.  I also finished another class piece of a pink ice cream soda.  What is going on?  I'm thrilled to start a piece but I LOVE a finish!  Thanks to my awesome finisher, the ice cream soda will likely become a boxed stand up.  I can offer this as a class if there's any interest.  A big THANK YOU goes to Melissa Shirley for designing this wonderful bird house canvas and another big THANK YOU to Kathy Fenchel for the stitch guide with minor changes by me.  I love working with like-minded artists!
 
Canvas Clubs

So many of you LOVE clubs that I'm inspired to offer another one.  This Club is a perfect fit for YOU because you can choose which pieces you want.  Introducing the SANTA AND FRIENDS CLUB.  This club will start in June but please sign up NOW because it takes months to get the canvases and threads in.

This Club can include the following pieces by CH Designs - you've loved her tiny houses, candy canes and other ornaments.  

Santa Claus
Mrs. Santa
Sleigh with Gifts
Boy Elf with Star Sweater
Girl Elf with Heart Sweater
Reindeer #1 in Red Boots
Reindeer #2 in Striped Boots
Santa's Workshop
And finally, a picture of the finished pieces, stitched according to the included stitch guides!  I will likely make mine into 3D stand-ups because I like them that way...and they sit on the shelves here and behave for me.  

So how do you sign up?  Simple, just call me, 810-694-3040 or toll free 888-694-3040.  I'll  need your choices of pieces, your shipping information, your credit card information and finally if you want thread kits or not.  

The following prices include canvas and stitch guide only, no threads!  See the following for thread kits.

Santa Claus $52
Mrs. Santa  $52
Sleigh with Gifts  $61
Boy Elf with Star Sweater $46
Girl Elf with Heart Sweater $46
Reindeer #1 in Red Boots $52
Reindeer #2 in Striped Boots $52
Santa's Workshop $125


Thread kits: THIS COST IS ONLY IF YOU SIGN UP FOR ALL 7 PIECES AND DOES NOT INCLUDE THE WORKSHOP PIECE.  Dividing out the thread costs of all seven pieces the thread kit will be $35 per month. Some pieces use the same threads so you'll only receive one card, spool or skein.   It's a very good idea to keep all your threads together each month as you receive your kit.  If you decide to pick and choose pieces and not receive all seven, your thread kit cost will vary!  Please ask if you need separate prices. 

The Workshop canvas thread kit is priced separately and assumes you'll use the repeated threads from your other seven pieces.  The thread kit for the Workshop canvas as described will be $150 (yes, there's a LOT of threads!)   These thread kits are usually all full cards and spools.  


How to sign up?  The best way is to call me as I'll need your name, canvas choices, shipping address and credit card information.  Questions?  Email or call me!

 
SPEAKING OF CLUBS - HAVE YOU CONSIDERED JOINING ONE OF OUR THREAD CLUBS?
 
I know many stitchers don't have a store near them and want to collect and use different types of threads. Consider joining one of our clubs and enhancing your thread stash.  If you live close to the shop, you can pick it up.  To join, just call me at 888-694-3040 and let me know which clubs you're interested in.  When possible, I include new threads from Market in your club packets so you'll be one of the first to try new threads or new colors.   Monthly shipping for each of these is usually less than $4.  With these affordable choices, you may want to join more than one of these clubs, and of course, we'll combine your shipments!  Also, no long term contract!  You may end your membership at any time with one month's notice.  

Thread Color Club -
The Color Club gives you the chance to receive a different color every month with various threads and sometimes embellishments.  The cost is $35 or less per month plus shipping and you get between 7 and 9 items per month.

The Vineyard Silk Club -
Now you can collect all their lusciously colored silks including their overdyed and metallic.  Based on 5 Classic Colors, 2 Shimmer Colors and one Tone on Tone, this starts at $47.00 per month plus shipping and LOWERS once you have all the Tone-on-Tone and Metallics collected.

The Au Ver a Soie Club -

The Splendor Silk Club -
With their 360 colors at your fingertips, you can stitch anything!  You'll receive ten colors a month and  in the 12th month, your silk is FREE!  Currently $37.50 per month plus shipping.

THREADWORX

Did you know that we carry the full line of ThreadworX floss?  This floss has an Anchor floss base and is hand dyed in over 240 beautiful colors.  It's a six strand floss and we carry the 20 yard size.   When laid, cotton has a sheen to it.  See these items in our catalog here.  We order constantly so if you want any of their other threads - overdyed perle cotton, overdyed Kreinik metallics, Legacy, etc., I can order them for you.
Our Next Trunk Show - EMBELLISHMENTS from The Collection!

Gather up your canvases and come in to Homestead Needle Arts in early March.  The Collection has round sequins, star sequins and different shaped sequins in a variety of colors and sizes.  There are all kinds of beads in different sizes and of course colors too!   It's a great time to see what you'd like for embellishing your canvases as we don't have the space to carry their whole line.  Come early for the best selection.  We expect it to be here in early March.
Speaking of embellishments, we brought back new items from Access Commodities including trims - perfect for edging your piece OR there are some like the braided leather that would be perfect for a horse's reins.  We also have the latest from Crystallettes - those are the tiny doll size buttons and now they come in pearl and turquoise.  I chose some spiky dark beads too so your canvas can have sharp teeth or fencing or warts or whatever else you can think of!
NOW TAKING ORDERS AND DONATING TO THE HUMANE SOCIETY...LAST CALL!

NOTE:  Several of you have asked if you can donate $5 and NOT get the ornament.  Of course!  I have an envelope and am accepting any cash or check donations for one of my favorite causes.  Make your check out to Livingston County Humane Society and mail or drop off here at Homestead Needle Arts.
 
Order either (or both) of these canvases for $64.50 each and I'll make a $5 donation to my local Humane Society for each sock that is ordered and/or sold by February 28th.  These socks are called Snowflake Nose and Watching Santa.  They are on 18 ct. and measure 4-1/2 x 5-1/2" at their widest points.  
Thank you to all of you that participated in our first ever Go Red with Thread stitch-in on Friday, February 12.   The American Heart Association will be thrilled with your donations.
That's it for this week!  
Happy Stitching, Theresa
