FIRST THINGS FIRST!  I'll be late this Friday...

Please be advised that I need to be closed Friday morning, 2/17 for a business meeting.  I expect to be at the shop by noon Friday, so don't stay away!  Just be aware that I'll be 2 hours late.  Thanks for your understanding.  


is here THROUGH SATURDAY 2/18/17.  That's this Saturday!  Don't miss out on these fun, delightful ornaments.  There are Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, Halloween, baby and wedding themes.  I took a few pictures of the many samples hanging in the shop shown above.  Can't make it in?  Shop online here and contact me for the 20% off pricing (810-694-3040).  You must order by Saturday to receive this pricing.  We only have this Trunk Show every few years so be sure to stock up.  THE NEW ORNAMENTS FROM THE JANUARY MARKET ARE INCLUDED IN THIS TRUNK SHOW!

New Kreinik Threads and Colors
Kreinik has a new hologram color 016L Olive Moss in size 8 braid.  The rest of the sizes are coming soon.  New Micro Ice Chenille colors include silver, gold, green and red (PERFECT for tinsel decorations!) and bronze (picture above).  We have some in the shop and I'll be ordering more.

Wine Stoppers, Wine Charms, Needle Minder Magnets
I think I told you that I picked some of these up at Market.  I stitched the wine stopper in NO TIME AT ALL.  This is a one evening project so you can make them for friends!  There's simple finishing video on You Tube by the creator and yes, it's as easy as trimming, turning the canvas under and gluing it into a silver holder.  I have a shop sample now available for you to see.  I just need a bottle of wine to put it in!   :-)

Colonial Needle/Lee Needle Arts
The new tool minder boxes are here.  These are made with Lee Needle Arts signature leather and feature an inset for a 3" stitched canvas - of course we can order any that you like if you can't find one here in stock that suits you.  The inside has a divider to keep the top and bottom separated and the top and bottom is magnetized too keep your needle and scissors SAFE.  Shown here are teal and black.  They might have had a red too but the colors escape me now.  Just ask if you're interested in other colors and I'll contact Colonial.   I know I'll be making one for me and that teal is VERY attractive.
New Light with Clamp for your Lowery Stands!
Even more exciting than the new threads, we have a new lamp in stock that will clamp onto your Lowery light bar!  It can also clamp onto tables, other stands, etc.  Of course it's LED lights so they're very bright and there are four brightness levels.  As you can see from the pictures, it's on a flexible arm and the light splits so you can light up your whole canvas!   At just $88, don't pass this up - it's hard to find lights on clamps.  
Tricia's Needlepoint
For those of you too far to visit, I'm still adding items to the ebay screen name called triciasneedlepoint (just click on the name to be taken to the page).  There are lots of threads to add and more canvases - all of which takes a tremendous amount of time.  Please be sure to bookmark this as a favorite and help a family clear out a fellow needlepointer's stash.
Skye Update
We're on a second round of training classes and the question is...who will win and be in charge of the other...Skye or ME?  I'm voting for me.  Skye has not figured out how persistent I am and she's still testing her limits. One wouldn't think such an adorable looking dog could have a bratty side but there it is!  Thank GOODNESS for the trainers who offer me insight every week into training this nine month old high energy puppy.  
That's all the NEW news for now.  As soon as Rainbow Gallery comes in and is unpacked I"ll let you know about their new thread GLISTEN and new colors of existing threads.  Keep those stitching fingers busy!
