Have you see the “Turtle Bags” !! Stitch By Stitch in NY has them and they are taking pre-orders for the new color – Denim. Not only is it a nice looking bag, inside has lot’s of pockets and zippers, the newer ones will have a zipper closure at the top but best of all it holds one or two canvases that can easily be changed out when the whim hit’s you. Endless possibilities. It get’s even better – they will do a bundle to include a canvas of your choice. Ny Needlepoint | Stitch By Stitch Larchmont, NY | United States (stitchbystitchneedlepoint.com)
The House of Needlepoint is having a contest ! Design your own mini tote bag ! They will supply you with blank canvas and then it’s time to let your imagination run wild. The stitched piece needs to be back to them by June 19th. House of Needlepoint – Needlework and Stitching Services in Darien, CT
House of Needlepoint also has something different – Buoys ! A quick stitch and what a cute idea for a key chain. The colors are so bright and happy.
Many of us are taking a class in shading. I just found something new by Susan Hoekstra. She will be teaching a class on shading with Art Needlepoint later this year. Purchase the canvas now and you will be sent information about the class early this summer. There are several other canvases available. https://artneedlepoint.worldsecuresystems.com/animals/altogether-by-skye-rogers
