Hello, All! Late summer brings a tidal wave of pretties to the shop. These photos are just some of our new items, and more will be coming back with Ellen from the Baltimore Needlework market!

First of all, we have this incredible book in stock. It is a wealth of information and the photos are rich in detail and color. Every rich, glossy page is alive with images and text to make a needleworker swoon.

We also have Scarlet Letter's Dona Dorothea Gazano y Garcia. And more new charts in a moment.

We enjoyed Stitch night last week. Here is Sherry's nearly complete "13 Colonies." Sherry is going off to school for an advanced degree, and we're going to miss her. Best of luck!

Jan is stitching "Spider Banner" by Alessandra Adelaide.

March (who has rolled up part of the design that she's worked on) is stitching another band on "Pot for Dickie." (Long Dog)

Maureen is working on this needlepoint design (or is it counted canvas?) In any case, it is vibrant and pretty.

Stitch Night is always a blast. We had a couple of new faces last time--lovely stitchers we hope will come again. Please consider coming even if you're shy and are not normally a "joiner." It is a fun group and you won't feel like a stranger once you've been here for a minute or two.

Back to our new items: Three great designs by Chessie and Me:

"The Raven" by La-D-Da.

And "Adam's Menagerie" by Tempting Tangles.

Which Glenna, after photographing it, promptly bought, kitted up, and started. (It doesn't call for the Kreinik you see here--this is just Glenna's interpretation.)

To purchase something you see here or to ask questions, please call us at 703-360-4600. The shop is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and the first Sunday of the month from 12:30-4:30 p.m. Stitch Nights are the first and third Wednesdays of the month; we have one coming up this Wednesday, August 17.

Happy stitching, and check back soon for the new eye candy from the Baltimore market!
