HOLIDAY AND MARKET HOURS!
Just to make it easy on both of us, I'm going to spell out all the days I'm open and closed. That way you can check back on the email if you're suddenly in the mood to shop! Did you know we archive a copy of our newsletters? It's on our web page under Newsletters. Just click the Archive button and you can read the old ones. I'll also change our website calendar to reflect the days that I'll be closed.

FIRST SATURDAY STITCH-IN
Are you aware that Homestead Needle Arts hosts a stitch-in on the first Saturday of each month? Well, we do! If you've never been to one before, or if it's been years since you came, please call or email me in advance of your first time. That way I can make sure I have enough tables and chairs for everybody. We stitch all day from 10-4. This is not a class, this is a sit and stitch. You'll be stitching and shopping with like-minded needlepointers! Don't be afraid to come join the fun. It's fun to see what everybody is stitching on and get inspiration for your own projects. Bring your lunch or plan on going out. It's the whole reason I'm open January 2nd so please consider joining us.
GIVE YOURSELF THE GIFT OF A CLASS IN THE NEW YEAR
I have two seats open in the Friday, January 15th, 2016 Kathy Fenchel Canvas Embellishment Class. Class is from 10-4:30 with a break for lunch on your own. For $80 for the day, you can't beat the value! Kathy will help the students choose threads and stitches for your canvas. It's great to see what she chooses for all the students. I've gotten more ideas from her than in any class I've ever taken. Be sure to call NOW to hold your seat.
WE'RE EMV COMPLIANT and WE NOW TAKE DEBIT CARDS
Your credit card safety is very important to me. I invested in the new "chip" credit card machine to keep your information safe. We accept all credit and debit cards. When you use a debit card, the costs associated with it for the shop are much lower than those for credit cards. For any credit card phone order, I will also now need your "CVV" code - that's the three digit code on the back of your card. Thank you SO MUCH for your continuing support. Without each of you, it would be impossible to keep the shop open.
WINTER WEATHER AHEAD!
As usual, if the weather outside is frightful, PLEASE CALL FIRST to make sure I'm open. I live about 35 miles away and may not always make it in. Also keep an eye on our website calendar as I can change that from home to reflect that the shop is closed, but I can't change the answering machine. Although so far, our winter has been more like spring and fall, you never know!
WE SHIP ANYWHERE!
If you can't make it in, remember, we'll ship to you. Just email, call or use our handy order friendly website to place your orders.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS and may the New Year bring you health, peace and prosperity.
