Oh, My.....They're Back from Nashville!

Greetings, all! Ellen, Patricia and Karen are back from Nashville, and what a haul we have to show you!!! In fact, there's so much that we'll be doing a few posts between now and Sunday to give you an idea of what we have in the shop. But first, be sure to go to our website and register for our emails, if you don't already receive them. And remember that Sunday we're open from 12:30-4:30 for the Nashville Market event, which includes drawings for nifty prizes.

We noticed some themes as we looked through the new charts and kits, so I'll introduce them that way.
Adam & Eve:
First off, Adam and Eve! There were lots of Adam and Eves at Market this year. Here's a gorgeous A&E by Shepherd's Bush: "Eve's Garden." This comes as a kit, and the fabric included is so wonderful that you won't want to swap it out.

"Sarah Gentle - 1821" by Samplers Remembered.

"Funky A&E" by NeedleWorkPress.

"All Thy Works" by Erica Michaels. The model at the show blew everyone away, and Karen is stitching this on fabric. It comes with 40 ct gauze, and at 4.6" w x 3.6", it's quite amazing--tiny and perfect.

Carolina House's "In the Garden" Sampler.


We saw lots of samplers featuring birds, including our banner photo, which is Bygone Stitches' "For the Birds."

And this, Rosewood Manor's "Peaceful Dove."

And Plum Street Samplers' "Maxim & Zoya."

NeedleWorkPress' "Polly Wanna'."

We have Blackbird Designs' "Sweet Thoughts of You," as either a kit, seen here, or just the chart.

Just Another Button Company's "Lovebird" which comes with JABCO's delightful buttons.

There are birds in this too, and some funky sheep and people. We love the colors in "Mary Roe 1808" by The Scarlett House.


There are lots of adorable animals featured in charts as well. Here we have "Peter and Peep" by With they Needle & Thread.

By SamSarah Design Studio, we have "Noughts & Crosses: Fox and Hen." So cute.

And look at the closeup: the chart features both the game board and the little 3-D game pieces (there are instructions for stitching the pieces on perforated paper and finishing them).

Sheep! Two samplers by Chessie & Me: "Lulu's Flock" and

"Scarlet's Summer Sampler."

The cuteness of this makes me want to weep: "Three Blind Mice" by Little by Little.

Sea Creatures in "Beautiful Sea Sampler" by Samplers Revisited.

Alphabet cards by Amy Bruecken. Here are just the first four.

Last, but not least: little Lantern Moon tape measures. Bunny and piggy! You need these!

These photos just scratch the surface of the new items we have. We'll update again in a couple of days.

Be sure to sign up for our newsletter, and come in to the Nashville Market special event on Sunday from 12:30 to 4:30.
If you have questions or want to purchase something, please call us at 703-360-4600. Our hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 12:30 to 4:30 the first Sunday of each month. Stitch Nights are the first and third Wednesdays of the month, from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m.
