Okay, Karen!!!, here it is!!! I will be having an ornament finishing class on 2 dates very soon! Check your calendars for Saturday, August 27~3:00 p.m. to however long it takes and Monday, August 29~7:00 p.m. to, whenever. I can't imagine it will take much more than an hour. Bring paper and pen to take notes. Cost of the class will be $5.00. What a deal!!! I will take you through the steps to create the lovely flat ornaments that you have been seeing popping up on our shop Christmas tree! They really are fun to do and pack away so nicely that they should look the same year after year when you decorate your tree. However, if you attach bows like these 2 being shown, you will have to protect the bows when storing. (or make new ones if they get squashed!)

The "Primitive Pearls" and " Folke Faire" seem to be the most popular right now with many of our customers. The "French Farms" are gaining popularity too with their rosettes in the corners! I'll be using one of these on my NEW design "America" which will be coming out soon.

So, in thinking what I could do for you since I haven't brought home a bunch of "goodies" to "oooh and aweeee" over, would be to offer a 10% discount on pattern orders only through the end of February. Discounts on brand new designs, that's just unheard of!!!
If you would like to go to http://www.hoffmandis.com/ and/or http://www.nordencrafts.com/ and view their Nashville "new" stuff, make your list, call or drop by with your order and we'll get them shipped in just for you!!! We do have LOTS of "NEW" things here in the shop already as some designers like Lizzie Kate ship their new designs to us before they leave for market. As always, our "after market" orders require prepayment so bring your credit card or check book along with you when placing your order in store. If you're ordering via e-mail, you can include your cc#, etc. in the e-mail or phone us with that information. Our e-mail is: mailto:email@example.com and phone # is: 785-228-0588.
I have 2 new designs released just in time for Nashville! "My Valentine" has been added to my other 7Ct. holiday designs. We also have St. Patty's, Happy Easter, Happy Birthday, Merry Christmas, Thanksgiving, Independence and Halloween. You can go to http://www.thesunflowerseed.com/ to see all the other holidays!

First of all, I want to introduce you to the most lovable little 3 year old Beagle you have ever seen!!! Her name is Daisy and I adopted her from my son Harrison and his wife Jamie. With 6 month old Zoe, life at their house was just getting too crazy! I had her at home during my week off to see how we got along and she settled in perfectly. She's doing great at the shop and welcomes all the petting a person can give her!!! She and Betsy nap under my desk together so things are working out well.
Betsy is 14 years old now and the cold, cold winter we are having just screamed for her to have a new coat. She seems to like it very much so sometimes we just leave it on all day!!!
Come on in and pick out a few!!!
Valentines Day will be here before we know it so we better be stitch'in
our Special Valentine a little somethin'!!!
Oh, I love St. Patty's Day!!! What a fun holiday!!! Got some great little projects to
"The Sunflower Seed Stitching Area"
Now, on with some beautifully stitched models "new at the shop"! We now have 3 of the 4 Stoney Creek "In The Village" series on display. They are absolutely beautiful!!! Nancy VanDruff has stitched all 3 and is presently working on the 4th. I'm sure it'll be done soon, she's a super fast stitcher! Aren't they wonderful?
