Here is the promised second post for the Nashville goods, although a few photos of non-Nashville new stuff have sneaked in, plus we are announcing a class.
First of all, here is the (mostly) full photo of our banner design snippet. Long Dog Samplers--we gathered around the table to admire it.
This is also by Long Dog--"Hare Apparent."
And a close-up.
We all love this new sampler by Shepherd's Bush: "Gratitude." It's hard to get a good photo of it, but the colors and the composition--so lovely. It comes as a kit.
Also by Shepherd's Bush, "My Stitching Bag." Darn it, I meant to load the photo of the bag (already) stitched by Karen. Next time! It's a quick stitch and just charming--a perfect gift for a stitching friend--stitched or unstitched.
This stitched (and I believe painted) map was exhibited at Woodlawn last year along with others by the designer--who is coming to In Stitches to offer a class. My understanding is that although this particular map is not taught in the class, the chart will be part of the class package. We will be stitching a needlebook. The class will be held on May 19, in the afternoon, and there are still some spots available (I think I was the first one to sign up). Come join us. Please call the shop for details; I am vague on things, because I jumped to sign up without caring about any of the details!
Here is a delightful little spiral bound notebook to tote along in your purse, or for jotting things down in your stitching room.
A new-to-me designer, Keslyn Designs, features some pretty, classic designs that don't take a year to stitch.
"Four Seasons Sampler," by Jeannette Douglas Designs.
"Old Windmill Village Sewing Box and Accessories" by Giulia Punti Antichi. It flew off the shelves immediately, and we're getting more in--you can see why!
And look at this guy--a beautifully made little sled, on which you mount the needlework (and there are a few different patterns to be had).
And these two sets of photos hardly scratch the surface! Give us a call to order, for questions, or if want some help locating a favorite design. Our phone number is 703-360-4600.
