Stitch Night and What's New in the Shop

In Stitches' stitch nights are the first and third Wednesdays of the month, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Everyone has fun stitching and doing show and tell and nibbling and talking. In fact, we would have had more photos of the participants' work if a certain photographer hadn't been wolfing down the mini piggies (tiny pigs in blankets) and apple pie and then working on her own new start!

Here are a few pics for your enjoyment: Jan's "Peppermint Twist" by Blue Ribbon Designs.

Connie's knitting a baby blanket--and thank you for the piggies!

Sherry's project--"Needle and Thread," by Little House Needleworks:

Something new in the shop: "Roses de Mai" by Reflets de Soie:

Which Glenna started last night (40 count Lakeside vintage Magnolia and AVAS fibers):

We all enjoyed seeing the many new needlepoint canvases that Ellen brought back from Dallas. Here are just two of the many super cute Easter canvases with a few threads pulled just as a suggestion:

A shop model of "Blue Mountain Bunny" by Sweetheart Tree.

The "Carrot Patch" pin cushion kit by Just Another Button Company:

Here's a shot of the kit's contents:

"Easter Greetings" Takealongs kit by Trilogy:

"My Family Tree" by Willow Hill Samplings.

Please join us on Stitch Night for fun and stitching! Don't feel bashful--the group is very friendly and inclusive, and we can guarantee lots of interesting conversations and some great stitching.

If you have questions or would like to order something, please call us at 703-360-4600. Our shop hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Saturday, and we're open the first Sunday of every month from 12:30 to 4:30 (EST--we're in Alexandria, VA).

Happy stitching!
