To our stitching friends:

It's hard to believe that the holiday season has arrived! We will soon be baking cookies, wrapping gifts, and planning our family celebrations....

As Santa's elves, we are all very busy this time of year, but amidst all the hustle and bustle, we hope that you'll take time for yourselves to relax with a needlework project (or a good book and a cup of tea).

There's still time to stitch up an ornament or a pincushion for that special friend or family member - many of the new designs below will work up in an evening or two.

Have you had your eye on a special chart, kit, or pair of scissors or another accessory? Remember that you may leave a "wish list" with us at the shop; if someone comes in looking for a gift for you, we will point them in the right direction!

We have a nice selection of scissors, needle minders, pincushions and some new wooden boxes (see below); all would be thoughtful gifts for the stitchers on your list.
Gift certificates are available in any amount.

You still a little time left to have a piece framed for holiday gift-giving; please get it in to us as soon as possible, to allow for changes if your chosen mat or moulding is out of stock with our vendors. Remember to use your "Creative Cash" if you have some saved from a previous order.

Congratulations to Deb Lonergan, who won the November raffle prize.

Stitchers' Showcase

Kim T., who learned to do counted cross-stitch just a few months ago, has already completed and framed two pieces, and is working on a third.
She has also made 19 ornaments from the 2010 Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornaments issue (see detail below).
