The Kelly Clark Makeover

Kelly Clark has a new website to showcase here stitching, but it doesn't list available stitch guides any more.  Instead, her distributor Colonial Needle has her designs listed in their Kelly Clark catalogue.  There is no longer a separate page for stitch guides but any canvas that has a guide available is marked SG.  Just FYI if you are looking for a guide from Kelly or your shop is ordering for you and can't find Kelly's old website.
