Special Events/Stitching News
Please Note that we will be open Tuesday, December 24 from 10 am - 3 pm for any of your last minute stitching needs. We will then be closed from December 25 to January 1 to celebrate Christmas and for inventory. We will reopen Thursday, January 2nd.
Open Stitch Afternoon - Every Thursday from 1-3 pm we have an open stitch time. Bring a project and join other stitchers for a fun time of stitching, talking, getting help or shopping if you wish. We have a great group who come out each week and you would make a welcome addition to the group. Please Note our final stitching afternoon for the year is December 19. We will resume again on Thursday, January 9, 2014
Sit & Stitch Night - Every third Wednesday evening we hold an open stitch time here in the shop. Although our doors are closed for business, we are happy to invite the stitching community into "our home" to stitch, chat and just have fun. Although it is not within our shop hours you can take advantage and browse and shop if you wish. Our framer is usually here as well so if you have framing to be done he is happy to help you out. We have had a great group of stitching enthusiasts gathering throughout the year from September to June and if you haven't been here you've missed out on some fun. It's a great time to see what others are stitching and even get help or advice from the expert stitchers who attend each month. No Sit & Stitch in the month of December. Our next evening event will be January 15.
At our last Fall Retreat, October 2013 stitchers had a wonderful time with a choice of two classes. 22 ladies spent the weekend, learning, stitching, relaxing, eating, laughing and chatting and making some lasting memories. This year there was a choice of a small counted canvas class that was turned into a coaster while some learned the art of Temari. Here are just a few pictures.
Brunch is served both days in the beautiful dining room of Brentwood on the Beach overlooking Lake Huron. A wonderful setting and equally great food.
It's time to get down to some serious classroom time.
Here all the canvas projects in progress have been lined up to show them off and below is one of them finished by the end of the weekend.
And finally, one of the highlights of the weekend was when everyone received a gift of a T-shirt with the slogan, "Stitch Now....Sleep Later". It was the apparel of choice for the weekend and this great group shot shows them off.
