We now have several designers Nashville stash posted online and ready for viewing. If you go to our All New Arrivals area you will see a posting for Nashville New Arrivals. When you click on that you will also see we have divided it up company. If I wasn't stitching a couple of things right now I'd be starting on Ink Circles "A Holly Jolly Mandala". What a creative design. There is pine cones, Christmas trees, angels, doves, gifts and I don't know what else! Don't think I've found it all yet. More will be added over the next while as we get things processed.
There was a ton of highlights from this Nashville Market but one of the neatest products we found was from Puffin & Co. It is a micro needle threader so totally suitable for threading beading needles. I can't tell you how many people have come in to the shop and asked "how do you thread those blasted beading needles?" This is finally the solution. We only picked up a few at the show but we will be placing an order soon with Puffin to get a bunch more. If there is a specific design you would like make sure to contact us right away and we will get the specific one you would like. They sell for $13.25 and here is the models they have.
We've tried one and it does work. You can't however yank your thread through or it will cut the thread. After all you are working with very fine metal. But, it will thread a beading needle and solves an age old problem.
We hope if you can, that you will drop in and look through the binders in the shop of all the new Nashville items. Take a few moments for yourself and have some fun.
And rounding out the Calendar Girl series from Little House Needlework is October and November.

While I am Canadian and appreciate the seasons, as I get older the coming of the cold holds less enjoyment with each new year. I am unprepared for the plummeting temps and the warnings of snow squall warnings on the radio today. If you are a little like me, the thought of staying indoors where it is warm might have a lot of sway right now. If you would like something to do while staying indoors, grab a nice warm drink, bring up our website and take a look at today's New Arrival offerings. Lots to check on this date, so click the date above and have some "warm" fun. For now here are just a few highlights:
Also from Imaginating a wonderful design called "Peace Snowflake"
Many of you have seen the design I stitched a number of years ago called "Ironwork Gate". It has been one of our top sellers of all time. CW Designs has come up with a new design that has a very similar look. From the Pastel Reflections Series this is called Pink House. There is also Blue House but it was out of stock when we ordered. We'll hope to get it sometime.
Make sure to click the date above and check out these and many other offerings that have just arrived.

The much anticipated release of Lizzie Kate's new mystery sampler "Things Unseen" is here. We had to take pre-orders for this and as a result by the time it was released last week our supply was dwindling. We still do have some Part 1 in stock, a few thread packs, limited button packs (but you really don't need those until the project is done) and we some of the Wren fabric in 14 & 16 count aida, as well as 28ct Cashel and 32 ct Belfast. If we have run out of anything when you order, Lizzie Kate's next ship date with Part 2 is mid December, so we'll have more of everything then. Here is a sneak peak at the stitched piece with the beautiful Weeks Dye Works threads to the left. You can get more details by clicking the date above.
