Princess and Me Trunk Show 
Now at The Canvasback
This show is our staff's favorite, so hurry in before they take all the good stuff! (Just kidding! They have to wait until the show ends to make their selections.)
These are great travel projects because they are small, stitch painted, and come with stitch guides. You can finish stitching one in a weekend!

Sharpening Event 

Dave the Sharpening Guy will be at The Canvasback Thursday, November 14,
10:00 a.m.-noon to sharpen your scissors!!! He can also sharpen your knives so they'll be in tip-top shape for Thanksgiving.
