I am happy to have my ‘Four Geisha” chartpack now ready to ship. This design was done originally for a kit from Design Works Crafts quite some time ago. I’ve softened some lines in the faces and added beads and metallic thread to give it the shimmer and detail that bring it up to date.  To order, please click here for my Order Chartpacks page.

Six New Chartpacks

I am so happy to finally be able to release six new chartpacks. All of these will be available next week on both my Order Chartpacks page and through the usual online stores that you order from. Enjoy!

As many of you know I was able to attend the Cross Stitch Club Retreat in Hershey, PA last weekend, thanks to Earl’s driving and his help getting ready. It was a wonderful weekend and I was able to spend time with my friend and fellow designer, Ursula Michael, and to meet the talented designer Jean Farish. What fun! Getting to meet old and new stitchy friends was fabulous. There were 175 people in attendance, stitching away until the wee hours, enjoying new found friends, and having a chance to “shop ’til they dropped”. One of the thrills of Saturday was when Lori Laughlin, moderator of the Faces of Joan Elliott SAL on Facebook, presented me with a beautiful quilt put together by members of the SAL. It is amazing and has traveled to Vermont with me to keep us warm and cozy all winter. I am ever grateful to the talented stitchers for all their love and support. I’ll take this chance to show off the quilt:

I Love It!

Finally, the huge thanks to Fae Kuhn whose organizing genius and friendship made for a lot of happy people… Well done!

New Chartpacks for April

April 2015 Chartpacks

8 New Chartpacks
© Joan A. Elliott

I’ve just finished preparing 8 new chart packs for April. It’s the time of year when the landscape transitions from snowy hills and icy sidewalks to a hint of spring with the tiniest small green sprouts peaking out from the garden floor. I’ve chosen a variety of my designs  that seemed just right for this very changeable time of year. Please note that the chart packs JE137 Behind the Garden Wall; JE159, For My Daughter; and JE179, Baseball, come with a key for hair and skin variations so that you can adapt them to your desired colors. The Family Tree design, JE101, comes with full alphabets for personalization and  some small motifs to fill any of the areas where you do not have names to fill in. Shipping will begin April 1st. I also wanted to mention that many of you have made requests for chart packs that you do not see in this release but rest assured, I will be including them shortly. I have three brand new designs in the works too so I’ll look forward to making those available too.

In the meantime, Enjoy! X Joan

JE123 1920’s Flapper Chartpack Alert!

To all of you that may have recently purchased the  Black & White chart pack JE123 1920’s Flapper, it seems that some of the black & white chart packs have gone out with the wrong key. Below you will find the corrected key. Please check it against the chart you have purchased to make sure you have the same symbols in the key as appear in the chart. I am posting the updated key below for you to print and use should the one in your package not match the symbols on your chart. This correction does not pertain to the color chart packs or any of the charts in the magazines.

JE123

Corrected key for black & white chart pack only.
