This coming week is the beginning of NJNA’s new program – the Dolphin Topiary by David McCaskill. It will go over 2 months and hopefully you have signed up for all the fun of stitching this piece.
ANG’s Virtual Seminars and Encore’s are open for registration and some have even started. Last I looked some have sold out so if your thinking about doing one of these events do not hesitate !
Congratulations to one of our good friends Vicky Witterschein – she just completed her 2nd year of her NAN teaching certification. We look forward to another one of her classes in the future.
The Needlepoint Market is this weekend and once again it’s virtual. I can’t imagine the new things we will be seeing over this next week – mind boggling and wallet busting !!
In the new issue of Needlepoint Now you need to read Elizabeth’s Musings column – she has found an APP to help decide which project to work on when you are indecisive (don’t we all have multiple projects started ?) It’s called Tiny Decisions, you should be able to find it in the app store and it’s free. It works like Wheel of Fortune but with your projects. You push the center button, the sound effects start and it lands on the project to work on – no more decisions to make !! You can use it for other things too like “Which handbag do I use today?”
Are you a Gayla Elliott fan??? According to Stitch By Stitch in NY there are a lot of you out there !! These 2 are quite sought after and understandably !! Wonder what will be new in the Market? Just an aside – if you liked those Turtle Bags Stitch By Stitch was offering that I put in the blog a short time ago you have a long wait now – Stitch By Stitch sold over 80 of them and the Turtle Bag web side is sold out until June !!! Yes, I waited to long !!
Gayla Elliott thru Alice Petersen
Stitch By Stitch also has something else interesting – you can get a customized school jacket. Ny Needlepoint | Stitch By Stitch Larchmont, NY | United States (stitchbystitchneedlepoint.com)
The Needlepointer has the cutest new club – Sea Creatures by Melissa Prince – You just have to smile when you see them. https://www.theneedlepointer.com/product/club-abstract-sea-creatures/
If that is not cute enough then all you grandma’s need to see this !!!! The Needlepointer also has this club AND you can buy the train they are sitting on !!!! How much cuter does it get??
Eye Candy has a new canvas to add to her 5 other words canvases – this one should speak to many of us !
In reading the Chilly Hollow blog I saw a lovely limited edition ornament from Sign of the Arrow. They have been doing them for many years and you can still get some of the back years on their web site. http://signofthearrow.com/shopping/category.php?category=39
They are also having 2 trunk shows during May, one of them is for needleminders by South Beach Button Co. – very pretty! Many of them are made from mother of pearl. https://southbeachbuttons.com/pdf/needleminders.pdf – The other trunk show is for Dinky Dyes scissors. Scissors – Dinky Dyes
I saw the cutest Pippin canvas of a seagull the other day and I promised that I had something for the blog from Pippin. They released some new canvases this month and one is cuter than another. The seagulls however – they have the greatest faces to cheer anyone up !! Then there are the bears ugh – they are all great. I also noticed that they have kits for first time stitchers. https://www.pippinstudio.com/
Next week the new Needlepointers Magazine will be online to see and in your mail boxes shortly after that – the cover looks very interesting – can’t wait to see the inside.
Needlepoint – Yoga For The Mind !!
