Tidbits From All Over

Many needlepointers are members of the Embroiders Guild of America and get the quarterly magazine from EGA.  Looks like EGA is going to start posting photos and information that they didn't have room for in Needle Arts online.  Here's the first tidbit, which adds to the December 2010 issue article on Agecroft Hall.

Need gift ideas for the counted canvasworker on your gift list?  Scarlet Thread has plenty of ideas for your friends, relatives and even yourself.

Speaking of counted thread, Laura Perin has new ornaments based on her fabulous quilt patterns.  The second link is to correct a typo in the thread list.

Want to see a sweet Santa?  Ridgewood Needlepoint has a customer with a darling finished example ready to be made into a standup.

We've all been trying to help Sandy pick a background for her dragon.  Janet Perry writes about picking background stitches for the Christmas tree she is finishing.

Finally, Patt and Lee Designs talks about getting new stitch painted designs ready for the January trade show. I am always fascinated about glimpses of the businesses who create the wonderful things we need to stitch and I hope you find this fascinating, too.
