Lots of stuff going on here at Rittenhouse Needlepoint. The Julie Pischke trunk show will be leaving soon (Monday). It's been nice to have it here -- such fun colors and so spring-like. Stop by the store over the weekend to check out her line and make your last minute purchases!
Coming next week we have a trunk show from Needle Crossings. This is a local company (Cape May, NJ) that features many locally-themed canvases as well as beach-themes, lighthouses, cats and Victorian buildings. Lots of great stuff and a wonderful local company.
Russell and Nancy are busy putting together the frog class. We've got lots of people signed up already but there is room for more so if you are interested in participating in this froganza contact us and we will add your name to the list. More info forthcoming.
We've received some wonderful, gorgeous new lacquer boxes from HP Designs. Shortly we will be receiving even more (Russell says as many as fifty will be here at once!) I am afraid that I am going to have to insist that everybody buy at least one of these boxes -- they are so special. The colors are rich and deep and his canvases coordinate perfectly. They are not cheap but oh what a gift for someone (or yourself).
We've also received a big shipment of new threads from Rainbow Gallery. We are hoping to process the threads today (Friday) and to offer them for sale starting this weekend (an ambitious plan). I am calling these threads Nancy's Favorites because they were purchased mostly on her recommendation. There is some great stuff -- alpaca, cashmere, linen, fuzzy stuff and more. The addition of these threads will greatly expand the creative possibilities for your stitching. Stop by the store and let us show them all to you. Or for those of you out-of-town be patient we will be offering them for sale online soon.
That about does it for news from the store. Oh, I almost forgot. LuLu is going to a new groomer now and she looks tres magnifique!
