Boo Beads and More

Ruth Schmuff has finished her mystery piece for Halloween.  He's funny, from the beads on Boo to those tiny little feet to the metallic background and those white emote lines. Bet they glow in the dark! His hands wave and his teeth glow. He's really a scream. LOL

The next mystery class will be the Christmas Bird Collage.   Stay tuned....

Do You Need Something Stitched?

With Ghost Stitchers apparently no more, I thought I'd collect a list of shops that offer stitching services.   I've been told the following shops offer stitching services.  I don't know the cost, the quality of the work, or anything else about their services.  For details, email or call the shop closest to you.  In no particular order, here they are:

Beth's Needlepoint Nook - they will stitch anything for anyone and have done rugs and stockings with guides

The Needle House

Old World Designs

Rittenhouse Needlepoint

The Needlepointer
Linda Wimer can be reached at The Needlepointer through the shop at their phone 425-252-2277.

2 The Point

Needle Nicely

The Point of It All


Needlepoint Alley

Needlepoint Points West

Red Finch Stitches

Enriched Stitch

Needlepoint Breeze

Needlepoint for Fun

Flying Needles

In Stitches Atlanta

Spiral Up Stitchery
This is a group in Puerto Rico that will stitch unfinished projects or do canvas restorations.  Right now their website is off line, possibly due to the dislocations the hurricanes of 2017 have brought to the island.
