Pippin Trunk Show, Big Sale, Off to Market

View this email in your browser

Eek, I have so much to tell you.  IT'S AUTUMN!  The most wonderful time of the me, that is!  I love the clear cool days, the chilly nights and the leaf colors.  For some reason, I get in an Autumn Cleaning mode.  I just don't do the spring cleaning thing I guess!  I like to wait until it's getting chilly to get organized and get cleaning.  On Labor Day I started cleaning my "sewing" room.  I don't know why I call it that.  It's more of a huge storage bin!  I discovered that I have FAR too much yarn so out some of it goes!  Seeing as one can never have too many needlepoint projects, those are staying.  :-)  I love how it looks when it's clean and organized but it never seems to stay that way. 

At work I cleaned my desk area.  You might laugh but it gets messy fast!  Apparently I just keep piling up the "gotta do" stuff.  Well, it's better on my desktop now.  Then I started in on the canvases.  Because I'm off to Dallas market at the end of this month (see closing dates further down), I thought I better put a lot of this on sale and maybe you'll help me clean it out.  Then I can feel better about bringing more NEW back.  All of these items are online also under the "sale" area of the catalog.  If you actually come in to the shop, they'll all be in the new "sale hallway".  There are literally hundreds there and I'm adding more all the time so don't be shy about picking through the canvases!


You might be asking "who the heck is Pippin?"  She's a wonderful artist from Canada that is very new to our business.  She just obtained a distributor so she has more time to design.  And boy, is she ever!  You may have seen her canvases on Facebook or Pinterest but you can really ogle them here  No drooling on your keyboard!  As you can see, her designs are fresh, fun and BEG for stitches.  Just so you know they are all on 13 ct. canvas.  Some of us prefer 13 ct. and some don't.  The best part about 13 ct. canvas to me is that you can finish it faster!  If you know a new needlepointer, these are great pieces to start on because there is so much area where you have enough room to try different stitches.  We only have the Trunk Show for 3 weekends (including this one) so please hurry in!   There's a huge striped tea cozy that's just calling my name. 

At the same time the distributor sent a smaller Trunk Show on 18 ct. canvas called Petite Suite.  If you remember J.L. Canvas Candy, this is the same line.  Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a website so you can see the whole collection.  Their items include ornaments in Food, Asian, Baby, Christmas, Retro, Best Friend and Feathered Friends.  If you're looking for a motorcycle or biker jacket, ask me to send you a picture.   I'm in love with the 3D Winter Dog House!

Off to Dallas Cash and Carry Market!

Off I go again!  I'll be meeting up with my pals Randi and Lori to see what trouble we can get into at this Cash and Carry market.  The Dallas organizers really make it a fun time for all of us with a party atmosphere.  The theme is "Stitch, Rattle and Roll" and we're all encouraged to wear poodle skirts.  Happily I do NOT own such a thing, and I'm sure that I can't dance to 50's music.  :-)  I'll just watch with drink in hand and hope that I get good pictures I can blackmail my friends with. 

The shop will be CLOSED on the following dates: 
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 25 as I fly out there
TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 29TH as I wing my way home with a suitcase full of treasures!

Note that the shop will be OPEN on Saturday, September 26 for your shopping pleasure.  How do I do that?  I have a very good friend that helps me out in these situations because I wouldn't want anybody you to go without your needlepoint fix!

I'm so excited to go see my friends and all my sellers again!  I hope you're excited too!  If you see something that you just HAVE TO HAVE while I'm in Dallas, email me and I'll see if I can grab it for you.  Of course I'll take pre-orders for anything now that you want.
