Hi Fellow Stitchers!      

    It was a busy week in the shop. Got a lot of orders filled and four bins of mailings off to you .. one more huge bin awaits for us to process through on Tuesday.  Fabrics galore arrived for me to cut and next week will bring boxes of new charts to add to the web site and get off to you.  HOPEFULLY we'll get the new Cottage Garden Samplings charts in SOON ... the demand for A Time For All Seasons-Christmas Eve AND the new A Year In The Woods blew our distributors out of the water ... and they are already on backorder!  Be Patient .. they're coming to us as soon as our distributors get more in from Cottage Garden Samplings!!

   I'm still watching the COVID numbers in Michigan continue to really rise.  We are all vaccinated and boosted in the shop but you may see us wearing masks from time to time .. especially as there are more customers in the shop.  If you feel safer wearing a mask, please do so!  We are not under a mask mandate at this time, but are encouraged to wear masks while in shops.  Safety IS our concern and we care about you (and us!) .. if you don't have a Mask with you, we have one for you right when you come in the door .. as well as Hand Sanitizer for your use.

CAMP STITCHALOT 2022

STITCHER'S RETREAT

Friday April 1, Saturday April 2 & ending Sunday April 3rd, 2022

Best Western Hotel, Davison Michigan

Reservations To Be Made ONLY WITH Stitches N Things (call 810-629-3333 or email deb@stitchesnthings.com  -- WE will make ALL reservations For You)

YES, you CAN come in EARLY and/or Stay Additional Nights (I'll be attending Thursday through Monday) - Let us know when you make your reservations with us if you are attending early, staying late AND if you are rooming with anyone/how many to a room!

https://www.stitchesnthings.com/CampStitchalotReservation.html

Ask for this to be a Christmas Present!

There will NOT be a designer teacher this Camp ...  Designer Trunk Shows are To Be Announced.

Camp Price includes hotel room fees, Saturday and Sunday Continental breakfasts, (other meals are your own responsibility), beverages & snacks, extra stitching rooms for large groups, Stitches N Things "On The Road" Boutique Shopping Room for your Needlework pleasure, and OTHER neat surprises.

The Shop Will NOT be OPEN during Camp Stitchalot due to lack of employees. There WILL BE a "stocked" on/site Shopping Boutique for your purchasing pleasure.  If we don't have something you want/need, we will get it to you at no additional shipping cost after Camp.

At this point in time, Michigan is LEADING the nation in COVID Cases.  Masks are not mandatory at this time, but are strongly suggested with business eligible to enact their own policies   If the mandatory masks rules are put back into place, they WILL be mandatory at Camp Stitchalot due to close exposure in the stitching areas and boutique room.

 

   

     And ... my version of Exceptional Friends from My Big Toe Designs is completed!  But I did mine on 40ct Silk Gauze!!  I will admit, this one has a few struggles in it.  I had to increase my magnification as a couple of the 'words' were in a lighter grey that made it much harder for me to see than I usually do. I inserted a quarter when I took the picture so you could see the 'size'.  

   Not sure what my next project will be .. I've got a small 'ton' kitted up here ready to start .. just need to see which one screams "stitch me stitch me" the loudest when I dig through them!

HOLIDAY HOURS

CLOSED DECEMBER 24 through DECEMBER 27  -  MERRY CHRISTMAS

CLOSED DECEMBER 31 through JANUARY 3, 2022 -  HAPPY NEW YEAR

     OK .. I guess that's that.     So until next Sunday and your next newsletter update ... Stay Safe ... and STITCH HAPPY ...
