Designers Desk Class and Trunk Shows

Greetings!


Hi All,

We have lots of events happening in the shop!! Swedish Days is around the corner - June 21 - June 26 2011. Remember those great smells, turkey legs, corn etc., we are sooooooo lucky to have the Knights of Columbus food tent right outside our shop. Have one of their meals and eat inside if you want. We will also have tents up outside. Our bargain basement will be 75% off for the week !!! A lot of shops are having the QR code specials which you will find at the bottom of this news letter. Just use your smart phone or tablet to scan the code box for extra special deals from Geneva merchants. If you need more information on how to read the code just call the shop and ask for Joey. He will be able to give you a bit more info on how this works.

 

NEEDLEPOINT -

 

We have two trunk shows going on - Melissa Shirley's trunk show is here from now until June 26th 2011 - Susan Roberts will be here from now until July 10, 2011. Do not forget that you receive 15% off all trunk show items when you buy something from them.
We have also joined two clubs that will be beginning in September. These are going to be great fun. Nine creepy characters in a 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" triangle on 18 count mesh with stitch guides by Robin king. Lots of fun threads and easy to complete stitches. Sign up early and receive a bonus canvas with your 8th order. We would like to send out the first ones by September, 2011 - so order early so we have enough materials.

 

 

 The next club are the Silly, Sassy,Sparkly Sock Club - each sock is approximately 6 inches stitched on 18 count mesh. Painted canvas and stitch guides are included.

 

 

 

 Sign up early to be the first to receive yours. Thread and bead kits available separately for both clubs....

 

 

CROSS STITCH -

 

  We have a wonderful Initial Pendant that comes from Italy. This pendant comes with charming charms. We are looking forward to the arrival of these. the kit for the pendant can be ordered. We think the price will be about $45.00. This does not include the thread so you this can be done with the color you choose. This would be a great idea for a gift....
