a fun time at Peacock Alley Needlepoint

Hi Everybody... Robin here...

Before I take off to teach this weekend at Beth's Needlepoint Nook in Louisville, KY... I MUST finish up with my wonderful time at Peacock Alley Needlepoint last month.

Where did the time go? (I know the answer! Writing the 12 stitch guides for this weekend's class.)

The 2-day event at Peacock Alley Needlepoint was so much fun! You know Sandy is a wonderful hostess: even her tongs match the store's namesake.

Peacock Alley Needlepoint serves up a good time.

Sandy and her gals, Machelle, Holly and Jenny were on hand for the Thursday evening Meet & Greet; complete with yummy hors d'oeuvres, etc.

This is how you say Hello.

Look at the wonderful gifts everyone received: a Walker Bag in the beautiful "peacock" colors.

Lovely presents.
Everyone received a Felt Needle Minder Magnet (with a duo purpose: holds your needle and cleans it, too) made especially for Peacock Alley Needlepoint!

Pretty "peacock" colors.

Here's my Walker Bag with goodies, too... complete with the Felt Needle Minder Magnet, Peacock Magnet, Graph Paper Note pad, Pen, and a special Peacock color beaded-Chatelaine to keep my scissors and needle threader near to me. Thanks, Sandy.

Beautiful and functional, too.

Class was Friday & Saturday. The guides had been written & the thread kits were pulled. Everyone was able to start stitching immediately.

Dot selected Machelle Sommerville's "Second Chances" canvas (MS-36). Lovely colors.

It was nice seeing Dot again.

Look at the fun threads, ribbons, and Beads for the "White Rabbit" (AS724).

Betsy is going to enjoy stitching the "White Rabbit."

Saturday: another day of being pampered. We had Chamber of Commerce weather. 

Delightful
More nourishment
Would you like a Mimosa?
Emily's bird is looking good.

Stitches were confirmed, new friendships were made. My job was done... big smiles.
