Well, it has come and gone....that is, the finishing deadline for Christmas 2015! Did you get everything stitched that you had planned? Well, if you did...you are lucky and disciplined. Congratulations!
Now is a good time to plan for next year, but also to get a few canvases stitched that don't have a Christmas deadline. Personally, I am trying to get a few projects completed that seem to take a backseat to Christmas designs.
We haven't carried canvases by Kate Dickerson, but I just placed an order with her last week, so take a look at her massive inventory, she has really pretty designs and we are pleased to include her in our shop.
A big thank you to our out-of-town customers who drive many miles to come see us. There are several groups who carpool every so often to come shop with us. Thank you, thank you. There are quite a lot of nice restaurants not far from our shop and we can recommend one for you. Many Wofford College and Converse College Moms will be coming to see us as they bring their sons and daughters for the fall semesters. We welcome you!
As far as local customers are concerned, we really appreciate your loyalty to us. You help so very much to keep our doors open when there is such competition online. Brick and mortar stores close all the time and it's a shame because there is nothing like seeing beautiful needlepoint threads in "the flesh" and seeing the beauty of a hand-painted canvas. If you don't see what you want in our stock (maybe after perusing designer websites) remember that we can order it from the designer or thread company and have it here quickly for you and guarantee it to be free of odors and in perfect condition. Help keep needlepoint stores alive!
