Tip of the Month
Missed Stitches

We often receive "stitched" canvases submitted to be finished, which have missed stitches. To avoid this, we suggest that you take a picture of your canvas with your phone or I-pad as a final step before dropping off your canvas to be finished. Then enlarge the picture and look for any missed stitches.

Spring Greetings! 

We are excited to offer a Kelly Clark Studio Trunk Show this month!  We love her topiaries and holiday designs.  Many of her canvases also have stitch guides.  The trunk show starts this Friday and runs through April 25th.  
New inventory orders placed during our January buying trip to "The Winter Market" continue to arrive weekly. The Village Ewe is overflowing with new designs and new designers.  We have a great selection of canvases, if you need a new Spring project!  As always, we are happy to assist with the design of custom painted projects.
And don't forget that graduation season is quickly approaching.  We've included photos of some of the many graduation theme canvases available. 

Due to strong interest, we have added additional dates to the new stitches and beading classes. See the Upcoming Classes and Workshops section below.  Spots are filling up, so please register early.  If your schedule is limited, we offer private lessons as well.

Happy Stitching,

Estelle, Ali, Karen and Polly
