Good Morning Everyone!
The first thing I want to share with you this morning is a piece that one of my customers stitched. His name is Henry and he did this for a class project and got an "A".

Sandy Arthur has been here for the last couple of days teaching in the store and we have all learned so much. The students are having so much fun we have already scheduled her for next year.
She will be here January 24-26, 2014 (Friday-Sunday) for "Peacock Pride". I will post details on the website soon.
Donna G. also finished her Oaxaca class piece that she took last year (or was it the year before), time is going by too fast.
Beside having the classes going in the store we have all been busy writing guides. I have been working on Susan Riberts Nutcrackers, Eleanore has been working on a Zecca canvas and Corliss has been worj]king on a 3-day Snowman from Jane Nichols.
Now for a little more class talk.
Carol Wallin will be teaching this wonderful "Red Poppy" from Laura Perrin in July. You can get the details on the website.
