Tip of the Month

"Ending" Threads
 

Always try to end your thread under an area of the same color.  If you end a dark thread under a lighter color, there is always the possibility the dark

 thread will show through on the front side of the canvas.

Greetings!

 

Happy 2014!  We just returned from an exciting and productive buying trip to The National Needlework Association Market in San Diego.  Lots of new items and designs will be arriving at The Village Ewe over the coming weeks!  We discovered new designers (BB Needlepoint, Itz-a-Stitch and Kate Dickerson), new designs from popular artists (Amanda Lawford, Melissa Shirley and Susan Roberts) and new products (acrylic trays and boxes, bracelets and leather snap trays)!

 

The new year brings many resolutions.  Why not learn a new stitch by attending a workshop, begin a new canvas or join one of our classes?  We are continuing our popular 12 Days of Christmas Club, which meets monthly.  You can join any time and attend as many, or few, classes as your schedule permits.  In March, we kickoff a new class - Hydrangeas in Nantucket Basket.  This weekly class runs for just four weeks and can be attended on either Wednesday or Saturday mornings.

 

The month of February brings our first Trunk Show of 2014 from Associated Talents.  See the Featured Designer column for more details.  February also brings the XXII Olympic Winter Games!  Beginning Friday, February 7th, the games run for over two weeks.  If you enjoy watching them (and who doesn't), it is a great time to stitch while rooting your favorite Olympic athletes. Go USA! 

 

Happy stitching,

 

Estelle, Ali,Karen and Polly
