Dear Friends:
      Spring has sprung here at Designers Desk!  Please come in and see what is "blooming" at our "new" shop located in beautiful Historic Geneva, Illinois.  We have quite a "bouquet" of charts and canvases to "pick" from to usher Spring in to brighten  your home.  Or ---- perhaps a gift to stitch could be just the thing to help a rainy afternoon "flower" into something wonderful!
      We are excited to let you know we have recently "planted" our accessory wall with "row upon row" of great notions for all your stitching needs, including a special display of designer scissors (i.e. Sheep (black or white), Cat, Squirrel, Owl, Santa, Witch, Primrose, Dolphin, Vine, Seahorse, Stork, Swan, Rooster, Fish and of course Patriotic!) that are a must see.  Do not forget to check out the socks!!!!
       As we look forward to sun filled warm days, we also think of you our customers, loyal old friends and new ones for whom we have a grateful heart.  We love to see you and the projects you are working on, or the next one to plan.  So come in and "chick" us out soon!
         Oh, by the way , remember you too can help the economy.  Simply spend your stimulus check at "Pat's Bodacious Bargain Basement Bailout", where everything is always 50% off!

About Designers Desk
I just wanted to tell all of you, how great it is to see all the familiar faces from the past and how great it is to meet all the new people that have come into the new Designers Desk.  You are all making our first year great (even tho we are having tough economical times).  Again thanks and watch for an exciting 25th Anniversary and Grand Opening. (I have never had a Grand Opening so I think we will do something really fantastic.)
