Happy New Year!
We hope that everyone had a safe and joyful Holidays.
Here we are again ready for another year and we are off to Market right out of the gate. Corliss and I leave on Friday for San Diego and the annual Winter Market. It is always a fun time to see friends and the new canvas that the artists have spent the last few months designing. We will begin posting to the blog Saturday night.
Depending on Internet availability on the show floor, we will try and post to Facebook throughout the day. If you are not on Facebook you can follow us but you will not be able to post to the page.
If you want to email us about something we post just email us at

Now for a surprise--Share a Stitch is back.
The first stitch for 2016 is one I put together for the 12 days of Christmas series that I did last year. It is a Milanese Variation.
Use 3 different fibers - a Kreinik 8 for the foundation thread (red), a silk such as an over-dyed for the black stitches and a Neon Rays for the grey stitches. I used it for clothing but I could also see using it for Mountains
