Hope you are all well and stitching up a storm! Did you like our new colors from the Nashville Needlework Market? There were so many cute and clever projects released, leaves my head spinning!
We also released our newest collaboration with Little House Needleworks, called "Four Corners". I'll insert a picture here as soon as I'm back in the office tomorrow I'll put a picture up. It is a darling, darling piece and will appeal to everyone. Ask your local needlework shop to order it for you today!
Meg is home on spring break and enjoying a little freedom from the grueling schedule at journalism school. It's always a joy to have her here. Of course Jake is happy she's here, I think he gets tired of dear old Mom. LOL
I have something to ask all stitchers. I'm researching an opportunity for a friend, so if you'd share any information you can in the comment sections below, I would appreciate it greatly. How is New Mexico set up for needlework shops. Not just cross stitch, but needlepoint, quilting and other hand crafts? I know there is a shop in Albuquerque, but I'm thinking more of the area surrounding Las Cruces and within 30-40 minutes of that area. Are there stitchers there without a shop? I visit my very best friend who moved to that area two years ago and love to drive through the little historic town of Mesilla and then heading through the pecan groves.
What do you think, ladies? (and gents, of course) of a shop in that area, carrying a few different types of needlework. Access to the latest patterns, threads, canvases and maybe even some yarns, beautiful models, an area to sit and stitch with friends? Is there an economy for that in that part of New Mexico? I'd love to hear your thoughts, so I can pass them on to the person who asked me. Me? I'd love a shop on every street corner. LOL
Spring seems to be upon us and the weather is beautiful! I hope you find beauty in the area where you live.
Keep on stitching! Sharon
