This trade show is scheduled for August 24-25 in St. Charles, Missouri. Stay tuned for postings!

**********************************************

Facebook: Kirk and Bradley posted a photo of their latest garden gnome canvas (an exclusive for now at What's the Point? Needlepoint) on their FB page. Do you think he might belong to a motorcycle gang? LOL

There's another new designer appearing at the trade shows! It's CH Designs, which will be distributed by Danji. You may have seen the darling candy cane Santas on eBay at the CH Designs store, which will be closing. Cheryl will be adding to her website as the line grows. (Personally I can't wait for the gnomes to appear.) The designs you see there now all have stitch guides by Cynthia Thomas!

Petei's new owner, Painted Pony, is releasing from their huge catalogue a bit at a time. Enriched Stitch shows off the first batch (all various Santas) you can order and the Nativity set (second link).
