April 2017


Monthly Newsletter Now that spring is officially here, we can look for forward to all the beautiful spring flowers, returning birds, and hopefully, warmer and sunnier days. And since it is a season of re-birth, its also a perfect time to begin new projects, learn a new technique, or come see completed needlework models to inspire you. There are lots of options to choose from. We currently have a fabulous trunk show by The Primitive Hare in the shop for all to enjoy. And as a reminder, May will bring our Annual Needlework Exhibit. Everyone is welcome to submit work to display (drop off the week of April 24th-29th) and we will have voting slips for all visitors to the barn to complete. The stitcher who receives the most votes wins a gift certificate to A Stitcher’s Garden. Please join us in sharing the variety and skill of the work we all create with fellow stitchers and non-stitchers . Wishing all a Happy Easter, Happy Passover, & Happy Stitching, Jan
