Fall 2022 Newsletter B

It’s August in Florida and it’s hot, hot, hot! 


     Gone are those early morning breakfasts on the back porch checking my emails, and the lunch breaks in the back yard getting a little sun. 

     To venture outside is to melt, which means there’s only one thing to
do – stay in the AC and stitch! Read on to find out what things we have coming up to help you achieve this goal…

I love all these luggage tags – they remind me of so many adventures! 


Ever wonder why a tag is a certain color, or what the call letters mean? Hannelore has put together all that information for you, and it’s rather fascinating.


So, pick out your favorite tags and learn a few facts about the destination of your choice!   (If your favorite tag wasn’t included in the show, just let us know. We’ll be placing special orders at the end of the month.)

Attention Cross Stitchers! Beyond the X's Classes


A couple of years ago we did “A Wicked Patch” by Cross Eyed Cricket chart in a class
we called “Beyond the Xs”. 


The premise was to use fibers you wouldn’t normally think about for cross stitch and some sampler stitches to change up the design. We used everything from floss to overdyed metallics, from fuzzy fibers to silk and from wool to a silk & metallic blend.  It was a lot of fun and a very cute stitch when it was done!


I’ve seen some charts (pictured on the right) that would work well with these techniques, but I’d like your opinions. Are you interested in classes of this nature? Can you think of any charts you might like to try this on? (It works best where there are large areas, like the pumpkins.) 


Please email me with your thoughts. )

Classes, Classes, Classes


While Santa's New Village & Christmas in Florida Parts 2 & 3 will continue throughout this year and into 2023, the classes listed below are brand new.

A note about our classes – You may join us for any of our classes in person, by Zoom, or just ask us to put the kit together for you. If you have to miss a class, Sharon and I are always available for questions. (Plus, we’ve also been told the stitch guides are really easy to follow.)

From Seafoam to Seashore


I know this class is last minute, but all the pieces and parts just arrived on Saturday…


This 4x4" Counted Canvas piece is part of an ongoing series that I like to call the "From & To Series".  We'll be taking the original chart and turning it into something different, because I just can't leave things alone! 


There will be 1 session for this class.
