What We're Doing While We Wait for Woodlawn

Hi, Everyone! We're excited about Woodlawn starting up on the 12th, and we've gotten tons of new projects in the shop to tempt you! (We're just down the street from the Woodlawn Needlework Show, so come by, say hello, and shop a little!)

The new Mirabilia Santa tempted me when I saw it online, thanks to one of our Stitch Night ladies. I grabbed a copy the minute it arrived in the shop.

And started it immediately, hardly putting it down all weekend. I am stitching it in the recommended DMC on 32 count plain linen. No need for a fancy overdyed on this project, since nearly everything is covered with stitching. So bright, and embellished with beads.

"Emily Jane Jones 1861," by Samplers Revisited. Model is stitched on 36 count Legacy Picture This Plus linen using Needlepoint Inc. silks.

Two new designs by the Blackbird Designs ladies, including the Mother's Garden sampler.

This hilarious chart from Lizze Kate. I'm a bacon fan, so I might just stitch up one of these designs for my kitchen.

We love the colors and the buttons on this design. Perfect spring project.

"Feeding the Reindeer" by Notforgotten Farm. Love the prim angel.

I love the pansies in "A Royal Anniversary Souvenir." What a beautiful blue.

I also love the brick house and the chickens in "Never Let You Go," by Heartstring Samplery.

We have some fabulous new needlepoint designs as well. This group barely scratches the surface:

We have all kinds of dogs and cats featured on these Christmas needlepoint designs. Give us a call and ask about your favorite breed.

Arne't these adorable? Don't feel shy. Needlepoint isn't hard--we can show you how to get started and help you choose fibers, frames, scrolls and even how-to books.

Here are some of the many projects that the stitching ladies were working on during the last Stitch Night. Isn't it amazing that we can stitch, talk, laugh and eat simultaneously? And unlike texting and driving, it's not even against the law!

If you have questions or would like to order, please call us at 703-360-4600. Our hours are Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. During the Woodlawn show we will be open each of the Sundays from 12:30 - 4:30. Stitch Night is 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. the first and third Wednesdays of the month.
