Order Up a Mail Order Guide from Susan Portra

Luv2Stitch just announced that Susan Portra will be creating stitch guides by mail for their customers.   Susan used to visit the shop regularly to teach but since she's not able to travel as much these days, she will be creating stitch guides by mail instead.  The shop's latest e-newsletter says "For $95 per hour Susan will provide stitch and thread recommendations from a color copy of your chosen canvas.  You choose the number of hours, type of threads you prefer, you receive back a detailed stitchguide noting thread & color recommendations for your stitching enjoyment.  Envelope is going out to her next Monday, December 12 at 4PM.  If you would like to take part, please give us a call."

If you want to take advantage of this unique opportunity, contact the shop.

Tapestry Fair shows off their Jack Stack Halloween pile 'o pumpkins, stitched using a Julie Elder stitch guide.  Isn't this fun?!

Your favorite shop can order the canvas from Tapestry Fair.  Tapestry Fair doesn't furnish stitch guides but they maintain a list of available guides and where to find them on their website.  Hopefully this will be updated soon with contact information for Julie Elder.
