Last Minute Update to Our Class Schedule!!!
Many of you have asked when Linda's next multi-day "Stitch-In" will be. Here's the big news: we are changing the Pumpkin Patch Party program.
Yes, you can still stitch the pumpkins. We are also opening the class to anyone who wants to enroll in two days of stitching heaven with the canvas of their choice!! Linda will write a stitch guide for you and we will pull the fibers before you arrive.  

The class will be held Thursday and Friday, May 5 and 6 from 9:30 to 4:00.

The price for the Pumpkin Patch Party is $495 and includes the canvas, fibers, and all supplies.

The price for the "Stitch-In" is $300. You provide the canvas, fibers, and all supplies. The first five pages of the stitch guide are included in the price of the class. Additional pages are charged at the rate of $25 for every five pages.

Please call the shop (847-446-4244)  to make your reservation as soon as possible. If you are providing your own canvas, we will need it by April 1 so Linda has time to write the stitch guide and we have time to kit it.
