Shop and Trunk Show Models

Good morning on this sunny Sunday from Virginia!

We have lots of models to show you today--there are some trunk shows in our shop, along with some new shop models. First is the little needlebook bat from the Blackberry Lane Designs trunk show. Just look at the detail on this little guy, and he doesn't even seem to mind the needle through his tummy.

His little bat bottom is just as nice. We love the little beads along his wings.

One of our shop models, "Coffee" by Alessandra Adelaide.

We love the way the swirls on the frame echo the swirls in the design.

We have a mini Long Dog trunk show. Here is "Pot 4 Dickie."

And a close-up. One of our customers is stitching this design using deep plum floss instead of the black.

This is the "Ferry Farm Sampler," by Homespun Elegance. Ferry Farm was George Washington's boyhood home, before he moved to Mt. Vernon. Mount Vernon is just a few miles from our shop, and Ferry Farm is about 30 miles south of here. Both properties are beautiful in the spring, especially now that the flowers and cherry trees are beginning to blossom. And a reminder that Woodlawn Plantation, which was originally part of Mt. Vernon, is open through the month of March (except for Tuesdays) for the Annual Needlework Exhibition.

We want to show you this stunning project from the needle of one of our customers! Kathy H. is doing a wonderful job of working on the Ann Bowers Sampler by Joanne Harvey of the Examplarery. Unfortunately, this design is part of a class offered at the Christmas in Williamsburg stitching event, and is not available to us. We hate to show you something we cannot get, but at the same time, we wanted you to be able to enjoy Kathy's beautiful stitching as we did. We love to see what our talented customers are working on!

Need a little something to carry around that special project?

Please give us a call at 703-360-4600 if you have questions or would like to place an order. We're open Monday-Saturday 10 a.m. - 5 p.m., and the first Sunday of each month from 12:30 - 4:30, except during March, when we are open every Sunday from 12:30 - 4:30.

Happy stitching!
