Some Exciting News from Stitch-It -Central

I am so excited to share some news from Stitch-It-Central in Canada. Maria and Rui are opening a second shop and will now also be in London, Ontario, Canada. At the new location, 1161 Hamilton Road E, London, ON, N5W 1B1, Telephone: (519) 601-5901, you can expect the same incredible service and choice of products that you find in their Ingersoll location.

Opening day will be this Friday, June 15th. To help with the celebration I have designed a new piece titled “The Embroideress”. She is pictured on ‘Goddess’, one of many Paigey-Lane’s beautiful fabrics you will find at Stitch It Central.

The Embroideress is a sister to my three other designs from a while back, The Musician, The Reader, and The Gardener. She will be available exclusively through Stitch-It-Central through July. Afterwards, she will be available at all of the usual stitchy haunts where you find my chartpacks.

I had a wonderful time at the Cross Stitch Club Retreat in Solihull, UK last weekend. How lucky I am to have had the opportunity to meet all the stitchers who attended. Traveling with my fellow designer and friend Ursula Michael was a treat and seeing Jo Critchley and Michael Powell again, along with Faye Whittaker was a  delight. The general consensus is that a good time was had by all.

I did a special design called the Time Traveler for this retreat. Inspired by my Facebook friend Clare Bowman and her amazing steampunk outfits, she seemed perfect to conjure up thoughts of the British Isles. She is now up on the Order Chartpacks page for order by everyone. You will also find her at Polstitches Designs right now and I expect her to be available in the usual online sites very soon.

Thanks again to the amazing Fae Kuhn for organizing the retreat and making it such a fantastic success!
