When we move into our new retail location, Stitchin' Tree will be very unique in it's collection and display.
The walls of our new shop will be lined with barn boards salvaged from the 1898 barn on the property. The ceiling will be covered with the salvaged barn roof tin. We're very proud of our rural Iowa heritage, and plan to carry the theme through the space.
Our giant Moo-ving sale will begin January 7, with prices slashed 30%-75% off fabric, patterns, notions, thread and kits and more. Throughout our moving sale, we will continue to provide quilting services, offer classes and workshops, and stock new fabric, patterns and kits. Each week, our newsletter will continue to provide a free pattern, as well as information about what's going on in the shop and online. We'll have plenty of Barnbusters and other Mooey Good Deals throughout the sale.
Details about our Moo-ving Sale can be found in our emails and on our website: www.stitchintree.com.

We are all settled into our routines and getting on with projects at the shop. There is so much we want to do and so little time. (Sound familiar?)
During market I had the pleasure of meeting Janice Vaine. We were directly across the hall from Landaur and for three days we were looking at Janice's latest quilt from her new book, EMBROIDERY AND PATCHWORK REVISITED, due out in February. I can't wait to get my hands on a copy. We would like to introduce a project out of the book to our Running Stitchers Club this spring. The project is Grandmothers fan that is embellished with fancy stitches. I am really looking forward to sharing it with the gang.
Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving. We all have so much to be thankful.
My best to you all....Nancy

Teresa and I finally got a few minutes to look around a bit on the last day of market, and look what we found! A magnifying lighted seam ripper. (A lady next to me assured me you could rip out black thread on black fabric in the dark under your covers...if needed. ;)) and.... wait for it....a Bohin 3 in 1 mechanical pencil. How cool is that? Remember those pens that had multiple colors of ink? Well this is basically the same. Pink, black and white are the three colors and we can't wait to get them in the store.
We are off for a couple of days now and are preparing for festival. I love coming to market. We always leave with so many new ideas to bring back to the shop. I can't wait to share. Until later... Nancy
