 New Designs for Nashville 2018!           

Jingle All The Way --Dust off your sleds and sharpen your skate blades, it's time for the annual Moonlight Sledding party!  The first big snow has arrived and the full moon is rising.  All the children either are busy heading for the biggest hill in town to sled or the pond to skate. Even the dog is in on the fun! It's an evening for cold weather, hot chocolate and friends!

Beach Dreams --From beach balls, flip-flops & sandcastles-these are the symbols of the most wonderful memories at the beach!  This chart features our design as either a drum or a framed piece.

Mary Porter 1832 --Mary Porter was just 12 years old when she stitched this beautiful sampler. This English sampler's edges are surrounded by a strawberry border. The entire sampler is made up of floral motifs, blue birds, butterflies, & flower baskets.  In the center bottom of the sampler Mary stitched a tree of life complete with Adam & Eve and the serpent.

A Petit Sampling Etui

A Petit Sampling Etui is a limited-edition collaboration project (limited to 2000 charts) from Cherished Stitches, Praiseworthy Stitches, The Stitching Parlor, and With My Needle. 

Each outer panel of the etui is a small sampler. These samplers can be assembled into an etui following the detailed assembly instructions in the package. The samplers can also be stitched  and framed individually or together on a single piece of linen.

We hope that you will enjoy our etui as much as we did designing it for you
