Winter by Little Shoppe is Coming

Little Shoppe has announced that their book "Winter" , a book with stitches for wintry type canvases, is nearing completion.  It should be shipping to me by the end of April or beginning of May.  We first heard about this at the January Market and many of you expected the book then...but it was still in the works.  Finally, we'll be getting our pre-ordered copies.  If you want this book, please call me right away to get on the waiting list.  I'm sure this will go into a second printing so call now.  If you already ordered this from me in January or February, you're already on the list!  810-694-3040.  THIS WILL NOT BE ON THE WEBSITE UNTIL WE RECEIVE OUR COPIES. 
Ruth Schmuff Stitches Volume 4 is Coming!

Stitches Volume 4 has approximately 300 more stitches Each diagram is a full page for easy reading.  The stitches are divided into sections diagonal, straight, crossed etc. and there is an alphabetical index.  Available in two sizes 8.5 x 11" or 5.5 x 8.5".  I've ordered the 5.5 x 8.5" size as that would be easier to carry than the large one.  If you want the larger one, let me know.  Price is expected to be $48 for the small, $60 or $65 for the larger one.  THIS WILL NOT BE ON THE WEBSITE UNTIL WE RECEIVE OUR COPIES.

I've found a new source for the popular A-Z books from Australia.  I expect the ones I ordered to be in shortly.  Just call or email if you're looking for a particular title.  It's getting harder for all of us to find needlepoint books as so many are self published.  Be sure to check with us as your local and big book stores don't carry needlepoint books!

Speaking of Favorites

Recently, I've discovered I need both light and magnification to make my stitching nights better.   I made a small investment in Daylight's light and magnifier.  It has a 5"diameter magnifier which is lit by 21 LED Natural light bulbs surrounding the round magnifier.  The lamp is black so it doesn't clash with any decor and stands 44" high.  The best part is that I can also make it into a table lamp by just removing the pole with the twist of two knobs.  At $120, this is a perfect addition to your favorite stitching chair. I've just ordered more for the shop, so let me know if you want one!  It comes in a box so I can ship it to you too.  Order it here from our website.

At least it is for this week in Michigan.  I've resorted to cleaning my office today because it was so quiet in here I could hear a thread drop - okay, so I don't have any pins.  This is great weather for sitting outside stitching while the birds sing and the sun shines.  Don't forget, we can ship right to your patio, no matter where you live!  Order over $200 and enjoy FREE SHIPPING in the U.S.A.  Have a great weekend and enjoy the weather!
