Valentine's Day and Superbowl Sunday

Greetings! We are open today, Superbowl Sunday, from 12:30 to 4:30. Come on in for some delectable Valentine's treats (the stitched kind). Not all are brand-new, but they're still worth having.

First up, the 2013, 2014 and 2015 Collector's Hearts by Heart in Hand.  These are little kits with fabric, buttons and beads.  There's likely a 2016 kit, but I somehow neglected to photograph it.

"Loving You," by Little House Needleworks. "If loving you is wrong, I don't wanna be right..."

Two by Threadwork Primitives: "Be Mine" and
"Endless Hearts."
"French Country Hearts II" by JBW Designs. Pick your favorite color of pink or red, silk or cotton.
By the Trilogy, "For Keeps."
"French Country Amour," by JBW.

"Teenie Tweenies" by the Sweetheart Tree. Very tiny and sweet.
"Tied with Heart Strings" by With Thy Needle and Thread. I couldn't get the photo turned on this, and its subtle packaging means you might not notice it, but it's notice-worthy and stitch-worthy.
Here are two heart/Valentine themed needlepoint canvases. Unfortunately canvases don't show up as well in person or stitched, but trust me, a little fiber and they come alive.
Even as a painted canvas though, this Pippin Studios dog comes alive.
I love this "Biedermeier" design by Gigi R. Not specifically Valentine, here's a bouquet of roses that you'll always have.
Madame Chantilly's "Fraises." Also not Valentine themed, but those heart-shaped strawberries, bouncing bunnies and the sheep do it for me. Spring is on its way.
To order or for questions, please call us at 703-360-4600. We are located at 8800 F Pear Tree Village, a shopping center next to the McDonalds on Route 1 in the Mt. Vernon section of Alexandria. Our hours are 10-5, Monday through Saturday and 12:30-4:30 the first Sunday of each month (that's today!) Come on in and grab yourself a nice project to stitch during the game!
Stitch Nights are the first and third Wednesday of the month, from 5-8 p.m. We'd love to see you there!

Happy Stitching!
