New Perpetual Calendar Club
I came across this WONDERFUL idea at Market in January and am wondering if you'd be interested in this new Club. It's a Personal Perpetual Calendar Club. You'd stitch pictures for each month of the year AND the Club includes all the items you need to use this calendar in your home, month after month!
The first thing you receive is the frame (four shown, one sent), small screwdriver to put your pieces in, 4 double mats, 3 years of calendar cards and two gifts - a box to keep your threads in and an Itty Bitty African Porcupine Laying Tool. The designer states that MORE calendar cards will be available so that this will last you more than three years.
The initial "kit" is $245 plus shipping if you're out of town. That's less than getting your canvases framed! Each month's canvas has a stitch guide and the canvas and guide together is $57.50. I can pull threads for you or you can work from your stash, your choice. At this point, I don't have the stitch guides so I can't give you a cost on threads. If you need to know, just email me and I'll ask the designer for thread lists. The 12 canvases are shown above. They're fun AND the calendar is a just a darn useful thing!
We will start this Club in July BUT I need your orders by May 2 to get the initial kit here. Call me at 810-694-3040 with all your information or use our toll free line, 888-694-3040 and I'll get you on the list.
NEW LOWER PRICE ON LOWERY STANDS
In order to stay competitive, I've lowered the price on the Lowery floor stand. This stand is made in England and boasts complete ease of use. You can purchase accessories but the main stand which has a clamp and a stable "foot" is now $270 instead of $330. If you've always wanted one, THIS is the time to buy. Again, just call me or come visit.
That's it for now. I hope your April is looking better than my back yard! It's a huge mud bog out there and Skye loves to dash through the mud and deep puddles and then try to bring the mud into the house. This picture was taken Saturday when she stayed home with Mike. I wish I could bottle her energy and distribute it to those who need it (like me)!
The tulips I planted in late fall are brave and have pushed up about 4" of leafy greens but tonight's predicted snow might cover them! Ah, "spring" in Michigan...be sure to come visit Homestead Needle Arts and keep the SPRING in your step!
