Winter Basket (Melissa Shirley, Carolyn Hedge Baird and Barbara's Needlepoint)

Carolyn Hedge Baird just posted a photograph on Facebook of Melissa Shirley's "Winter Basket" which Carolyn just finished stitching.

Carolyn will teach this at Barbara's Needlepoint in October but a guide is available from her and from Melissa Shirley.  Your shop can order the canvas from Melissa with the guide or if you have it already, talk to Carolyn if you can't make the class next fall.

Mary Made the Cover!

The Nov.-Dec. 2015 Needlework Retailer
Needlework Retailer is a wholesale only magazine for the shops, alerting them to all the new needlework things.  Guess who made the cover?  Our own stitch guide writer Mary Waldsmith!  You can see a good close up photo of Mary's model of Needle Deeva's gingerbread Christmas House here.

By coincidence, Stitch By Stitch in Larchmont, NY has the canvas, guide and threads on sale as a package deal.  I'm pretty sure the guide included is Mary's but you can always ask before you add this to your list for Santa Claus.

Your local shop can also pick up the canvas and guide for you from Needle Deeva if you prefer to use up your stash of wonderful threads and save a little money.

Congratulations on being our latest Cover Girl, Mary!

The Titanic Coaster (Melissa Prince Designs and Suzie Vallerie of Enriched Stitch
