Jody Designs Trunk Show

If you aren't enticed by the Princess & Me offerings, swing by the store and check out our Jody Designs Trunk Show! The other day three big boxes of her ornaments arrived and they will be here through April 21st - so you only have a short time it check out!

Now is the perfect time to start a needlepoint project for Christmas - you'll have time to complete the piece and send it off to be finished with time to spare!

You can see the majority of her designs on her website. If you find something you like, we can set it aside or send it to you. If you're looking for something in particular, let us know and we can help you find it!

You can peruse the Princess & Me website to see a greater sampling of their needlepoint designs.

If you're looking for something in particular or see something you like on the website, give the shop a call or send us an email. If we don't have it on hand for the trunk show, we can order any canvas for you.

Each design comes with instructions, a photo, and a stitch and fiber guide.

Cat Bordhi How-To Videos

While I was searching for videos of the Berlin Zoo's new baby panda on, I made a pleasant knitting discovery. Cat Bordhi (of sock designing and moebius knitting fame) has her own channel on youtube. Here you'll find companion videos for many of the patterns featured in her newest sock book, New Pathways for Sock Knitters.

For those not familiar with knitting socks on two circular needles, Cat demonstrates her "signature move" in a two part video.

Youtube is really a great resource for knitters. There are thousands of other knitting demos that kind and knowledgeable individuals have posted for your enjoyment.
