It took a village to get this shop moved to our new location. We could not have done this without our many friends. Many. many thanks to: Sybil, Mary, Debra, Norma, Wendy, Joe, John, George, Donald, and Mr. Gates. It took many long days in an unheated shop to get this project completed. Pat spent many hours on the ladder rehanging over 400 models and we spent long hours prepping our 40 foot fiber wall. BUT - It's done and it looks fabulous if I do say so myself. We did manage to get some new things in the shop even though we were moving. We have all the new Shepherds Bush kits and Pat has both the little stockings already stitched- just darling. I am working on the new WTNT Santa pillow. I managed to find the red ticking and hope to have it made up quickly. Next week we will have new Lizzie Kate and the new Christmas sampler from Stacy Nash- fabulous! I hope you all enjoyed your holiday. I love Thanksgiving- from the decor, to the food, to the parade, to the gathering of friends and family. My daughter and her boyfriend came and we had a great time. We cooked enough food for half this city, laughed ouselves silly over many episodes of Duck Dynasty,and watched a multitude of football. We didn't do any Black Friday shopping - too many last minute things to do so we could open the shop on Saturday. We had our reopening on Saturday. It was so busy and people seemed to love our new space. If you haven't come by- please do. We can't wait to hear what you think! We are hoping to post the reservation form for our Ladies Prim Society by next week. This is an exclusive club through DTS featuring Threadworks Primitive and Blackbird Designs. Every 8-10 weeks you will receive a complete kit including any finishing supplies needed. Maybe a sneak peak before the end of the year. Love this first one- you will too! This is going to be FUN! Don't forget to mark your calendars for our retreat Oct 3-5, 2013. We will be posting full info by January 1st- teachers, tracks, etc. We are so excited about this retreat and are coming up with more ideas than we can possibly accomplish but its great fun picking the ones we will complete. If you are looking for that special gift for a stitching friend- we have lots of fun things to pick from or a gift card is always a welcome choice. These can be purchased in person or by phone. We are happy to mail it to the recepient of your choice. We will be accepting framing and finishing until December 8th for Christmas delivery. Please drop your projects off as soon as you can. Next week I will post pictures of the new shop! I know this is such a busy time of year. As we go about our preparations for the upcoming holidays lets remember the true meaning of Christmas- Peace, goodwill towards men......


  1. OMG!! We watched so much Duck Dynasty, I thought my daughter-in-law was going to run out of my house screaming!
    Can't wait to see your new store.

  2. Can't wait for details on the Ladies Prim Society and hoping at some point I can come visit your new shop :-).
