Pineapples and New in the Shop

We are proud to show you a Just Nan exclusive Charm Garden Pin made for In Stitches!

Here at In Stitches, we are all about the pineapple, which is a sign of hospitality. If you have visited us, you may have noticed our carved pineapple sign or our pineapple garden flag.

We have lots of pineapple charts and stitched models, including this biscornu from Jeannette Douglas Designs.

And this "Pineapple Welcome" banner from Fanci That.

We are loving the new Sublime yarn book and yarns. This sweater is knit in Bamboo and Pearls DK yarn. I can't begin to tell you how deliciously soft and squooshy and yet smooth this yarn is--and each stitch shows a perfect definition.

From the same book, this sweater is knit from Sublime Tussah Silk DK.

New model in the shop: "Grace Risk 1848" by Samplers Revisited.

Here it is in close-up. Notice the lovely satin stitching on the tiny butterflies and the over-one purple bunny!

Some of you who have shopped here in person or who call in an order have met Patricia Eaton, the manager of In Stitches. She is very Scottish and very talented with a needle. Here are two small projects she has completed from Ewe & Eye & Friends: "Thistle House" and

"Petite Sampler."

We will be open this Sunday, May 1, from 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Please call us if you have questions or would like to place an order, at 703-360-4600. We are open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern, and the first Sunday of each month from 12:30 - 4:30.

Happy stitching!
