New Heavens to Betsy wools...

Beautiful new Heavens to Betsy colors
and some back by popular demand.
A beautiful "peacock" with a herringbone texture,
slightly out of my comfort zone.
All are pre washed fat quarters and fat eighths.
I can just see new rugs in my mind taking shape!!

Hartman Hooks new in the shop...

We are now carrying Hartman Hooks!!
Made in Ireland with yew handles and a brass hook with a larger shank. They have a wonderful balance in your hand and open up a larger hole in your foundation material to ease pressure on your hand and wrist. They come in several handle styles and hook sizes for #6 to #9 size strips. In my opinion they are like the Cadillac of hooks, they are perfect for anyone with hand or wrist issues and once you try one you will be amazed.

New Floor Paint...

The new floor color, a couple shades darker
than the walls. It still needs another coat or
two to keep the old orange color from showing thru
on the scuffed spots.

It is so mellow and calming, I love it!!

May Class Schedule...

Hooked Scissor Keeper
Wednesday, May 7th at 3pm
Bring 12" hoop - $28
(We decided to do this class in reds, blues or greens.  It is sort of multi colored
 and mixing them is so creative and fun. Everyone has their favorite color,
please let me know which color range you prefer when you sign up so
I can have enough strips cut for you to choose from)
Flower Basket Applique Mat
Wednesday, May 14th at 3pm
Bring scissors - $22
(Ok, this is another class that we decided to change up a bit.
We had another mat we were thinking of featuring this month
which has a similar but more autumn design, so what the heck
we decided to offer both at the same time. Just let us know which one you prefer
so we have enough made up ahead of time.)
(This is the other choice Flower Mat)

Needle Felted Spring Robin
Wednesday, May 21st at 3pm
(This one is pretty cute and just about life size)
Needle Punched Button Keeper
Wednesday, May 28th at 3pm
Bring 7" hoop and needle punch if you have them - $15
(Good for keeping track of odds and ends or a wonderful gift)
All classes include a light supper.
Please call 218-744-5673 for more details 
or to sign up...
...we look forward to seeing you!
