We made it through the 2nd day of teaching, shopping, and meeting wonderful, talented people. Amy and Jill opened the checkbook and began placing orders. Here are some of the new things which are coming our way:
|Rebecca Wood animal ornaments|
|Turtle by Birds of a Feather & Amy Schimler|
|Rooster Waiter by Maggie Co.|
|Rooster Chef by Maggie Co.|
|Kitty Magrittee by Maggie Co.|
|New York Penguin by Maggie Co.|
|QE Cat by Maggie Co.|
|Will Shakespurr by Maggie Co.|
As Amy and Jill were ordering books, we came to June McKnight's booth. She has a new book, Spooky Stitches, which is all about Halloween stitches and embellishments. Here's a picture of Amy and June holding the sample banner featuring all of the stitches listed in the book. I've asked for my copy; I know Peggy will want one, too. How about you?

This has been a fun market, indeed. Seeing good friends, meeting the "rock stars" of the needlepoint industry, and teaching my finished pieces to the wonderful shop owners from across the country.

Day 2 is in the books. Day 3 is waiting. Then it's off to teaching at two wonderful needlepoint shops in California: Needle In A Haystack/Montrose, CA and A Stitch in Time Needlework/San Marino, CA. See you soon! Thanks, Robin
