Now is the time to let us know if you would like to place a special order and to pick it up in PEI, as we will be placing the last of our orders in the coming week.
In Honour of Canada Day we will have a special running from June 22 till July 13th.

Was it not yesterday that it was the middle of March? Even the weather we have been having is reminiscent of early March. I have no idea how it become mid April all of a sudden and I'm so late at publishing the specials!!
So because of how late into April I am publishing the specials, we have decided that for the months of April and May we run both months' special together.
April and May's Specials of the Month
Framing - Free In stock fillets on any new order placed in the months of April and May. This includes all wood and fabric fillets. On mats or in frame. Fillets are a creative way to bring detail or a pop of glitter to your favourite frame.
Stitching/Embroidery - 25% off all in stock Scissors and Needles!!! Great time create a stash of your favourite needles, try a different brand/size/style.
In more news...
The end of March and the beginning of Aprils has been full of new products, and patterns. Over the last couple weeks we have receiving lots of orders with more on the way!!! More new patterns expected in within the next week or so (if our weather cooperates, let's cross fingers.) We are also expecting new Hazel Blomkamp books, kits and Patterns!!!!
Every once in awhile we will order in an vial of Turkish Emery to stock the store. However on our last order we brought in a project kit "The Rococo Strawberry Emery Kit." This kit comes with everything you need to make your own strawberry emery cushion.
Emery is a great way to keep your needles looking fresh and helps to sharpen a dull point.
Artist Block can happen for many different reason. I struggle with artist block in this next section something fierce. As many know I work between two to three jobs and have just gotten a new kitten, and while this takes some time away from creating I have not let this stop me.
No where I have hit artist block in our sampler is the alphabet and charting the stitches. While stitching comes easy the computer and stitching programs don not and I am teaching myself as I go. As for the alphabet I had one I loved and was half way through charting it when I discovered that it would be way to be big for our size fabric. (So I will just have to find a new alphabet and save this one for my next design.
So something is better than nothing.

The Buttonhole Stitch is done using DMC 03 and worked with two strands of floss.
