Happy Friday evening, everyone! I'm back with some more Nashville photos.
First off, I have been asked about the called-for Valdani in With Thy Needle and Thread's "Stars and Stripes Forever." I purchased the Valdani, which is the small ball. I used it in the pomegranate and the flag, and as you can see, the thread varies from deep red to a light yellowy/orange. I'm enjoying it and won't change now that I've started it, but I like the pomegranate Gentle Arts a little better. There's more pink/red and less yellow/orange. Either way works, I think, so if you buy the chart and kit it up, don't feel that you have to stitch with the suggested Valdani thread. Just my opinion here--not speaking for the shop or the designer.
I understand Woodlawn will be open tomorrow (it was closed today for the weather) and that it's a very worthwhile visit. Then come see us afterwards and stock up on fun projects!
To order or for questions, please call 703-360-4600. We are at 8800 Pear Tree Village Court, Alexandria, VA. If you are heading north from Woodlawn, we are just off Route 1 in the shopping center to the right of the McDonalds.
Our hours are 10-5, Monday through Saturday, and during the month of March during Woodlawn, 12:30 to 4:30. We hope to see you soon!
