Greetings! We had a great time on our annual buying trip. We are excited to offer the following new products-
Stitch Happy is a company that sells tumblers, small notebooks, quilted totes, water bottles, coffee cups etc. which all feature a stitch happy logo. Products that remind us- we’d rather be stitching!
Pischke Pockets fully kitted cloth bags with matching canvases. They are a company from Key West FLA that has been doing a lot of advertising in recent needlepoint magazines and have a summery fun feeling!
Patti Mann – a new line of canvases, which are mounted on a board with a vintage doorknob and are a novel way to hang your keys or dog leash!
Julia Snyder – two new books entitled Black work, and a Personal Stitching Diary
June McKnight has a new book Spooky Stitches, which offers some novel ideas for Halloween needlepoint and beyond. We’ll have some autographed copies and will be offering a class based on the book to help you get started.
Amanda Law ford – some new wooden boxes in round and square designs, which will make great gifts.
New totes in great new fabrics and styles

Lees Needle Arts – new leather products designed for I pads, I phones, and electronic book products. New leather pillows which all have an opening for that special canvas, are a great project idea for the family room, den, office, or that hard to stitch for guy on your gift list.
