Sunday Sampler of Classes and New Items

It is already over 100 degrees here in Arizona which means our part time residents have left for cooler places. This is the time of year I get to take a breath and dig into all the things that I could not get to during  our busy winter season. I am working on this canvas will be finished as a fun banner. I found some great embellishments to complete which I am keeping as a surprise when you see the finished item. 

 The Covey  was sent our last week but just in case you missed this issue about classes  click here.
Talented Laura Taylor will teach at our Fall Retreat. For all of you who have questions about stitch guides, Laura will start with a class to answer all your questions.  Then two great days of working on your chosen project with Laura along with fun with friends, old and new!  The boutique hotel, The Gainey Suites is steps away from shopping, restaurants , a wonderful spa and only 5 minutes from Quail Run Needlework. I am having fun with all the details so do not miss this! Call the shop to sign up.  

We are all proud of our stitching family and so  I was proud to feature Elaine Bleakney's new book in The Covey . Her parents , Lynn and Walt winter in Arizona and their visits to the shop are much enjoyed and appreciated.

Here are the latest magnets into the shop so call or stop in to add to your collection.

Enjoy the evening and stitching. See you soon.

Sunday Sampler of New Quail Run Designs and New Threads

I have many new Quail Run Designs in the works. Here are three of the Patriotic club designs for you to preview. They can be finished on a garland, a wreath or just hang individually .
I am just about finishing stitching the Santa above and will finish it as a stand up . Look for it on display at the shop. It would be a great addition to your Santa collection. There are new items coming in from market. Of course Rainbow gallery has new colors in several of their thread lines.

Also coming to the shop is Russian Braid as well as some more colors of the Silk wrapped Purl. I have lots of great embellishment ideas for these two threads for you to use on your projects.

Have a great week. Look for this month's edition of The Covey in the next week to update you on classes. The Quail's Quill will be out May 22 for you to enjoy. Susan
