Hi Fellow Stitchers ...
Well, this next Thursday I'll be flying off to St. Charles MO for the TNNA Fall Needleart Market!
Friday I'll be teaching a class on Silk Gauze stitching in the morning, and then will be taking a felting class with Judy Bielec from Mosey N Me in the afternoon.
THEN .. "some" of the exhibitors will have 'early bird shopping' for us Friday evening before the shopping begins in earnest on Saturday and ends up late Sunday afternoon.
Monday I'll be flying back to Michigan and the new product purchases I've made will begin to be opened here in the shop on Tuesday .. and your orders will be filled as quickly as we possibly can! Because this is a Cash & Carry & Order Market, and because I'll be flying, I will have one huge suitcase packed full of new stuffs to bring back with me, while the rest will be shipped UPS and will hopefully arrive shortly after I get back!
As you will have noticed, Debbie and I are adding 'Market Preview Items" as fast as our little fingers will let us to the "What's New" page of my catalog. If there is something there you would like, please pre-order it .. that way I can make sure to purchase and bring back the right amount of new goodies to the shop!
And, IF you hear of something NEW coming at Market ... PLEASE e-mail or call us to let us know if it's something you would like! Debbie will be e-mailing ALL requests to me before she leaves for the day on Friday, and I'll be checking in with the shop before the end of the business day on Saturday to see if there are any other requests that may have come in that day.
Here's where you can see a listing of the exhibitors who have already signed up to show. Some designers you especially like may not be listed, but some of the distributors exhibiting will have those newest for us to see/purchase.

Hey DIANE MADEJCZYK ...
you were just in the shop on Tuesday looking for this Halloween design in 'chart format' so you wouldn't have to purchase the kit from that catalog. While you knew who the designer was, and I knew who the chart publisher would be, we came up 'empty' on our search for it.
And here is is today .. TA DA .. I'll have it in the shop by the middle of this next week!! "Halloween Night" from Imaginating!
We still have our Complimentary Charts of the Month for you!
How do you get these you ask? It's so easy .. when you place an order during the month of September you'll receive our offered freebies automatically included with your order. When you come into the shop, simply ask us for the 'Freebies Of The Month'. Or, you can send us a SASE (legal sized, 4 1/8" x 9 1/2" self-addressed stamped envelope) and we'll mail them right off to you!

Well, I think that's it for tonight. I'll be blogging once again sometime tomorrow morning (it's too late tonight .. I wanna get home before 'dark'), with pics of my newest creations to show you .. so you may want to see what I've been up to .. in my spare time! Now that my felting sculptures are out of the way, I've begun another silk gauze project .. Carriage House Samplings' "Molly". This one will be for me .. I mean, it'll hang in the shop for awhile probably, but I've wanted to do this one gon 40ct gauze ever since I first saw the design!
I wasn't sure if I would be sending a newsletter out to you this next Friday from Market .. and now I think, with some late night shopping there to get done and all, that I will 'not' send one out. If there's anything that isn't already on the What's New page, I'll see what I can do with adding any new stuffs that way instead. So .. stay tuned and .......
