Some Dallas finds have arrived!

Okay, we have a name - Just a Sip from CBK Needlepoint Collections.

 This whimsical design has lots to offer to our class members.  The design area is 10.5 x 12".  It is painted on 18ct canvas.  There is a series of these ladies but we are just doing one at a time right now.  This class is tentatively scheduled to begin mid-August 2019.  It will be comprised of 6 lessons which are released one a month.  The class fee is $150 for the 6-lesson packet.  There will be optional thread/embellishment kit and canvas purchases offered when we get closer to class time. The shops are working up prices now for us to consider.  Invoices for lesson fees are processed a month or so before the first lesson is to begin.  Email me at to be placed on the notification list.  There is no obligation to be placed on that list.  That places you on notice that I am sending invoices and if you are still interested in the class - pay the invoice; if no longer interested in the class - just ignore the invoice.  I sometimes send out one reminder to ask if you are still interested and then I cancel the invoice if I don't hear from you.

UPDATE:  Last week we introduced the new upcoming class The Gossips which is scheduled to begin mid-May 2019.

Here's the Update - we have decided that in order to give proper attention to the design elements of this super cute piece we will be sharing 7 monthly lessons instead of the normal 6.  Also, the class fee will remain as $150 for the 7-Lesson Packet. There is so much going on here as we audition embellishments, threads, stitches, oh my! Just email me at if you wish to be placed on the notification list.

Barely 2 weeks away from our wonderful Stitching Down the Danube stitching adventure.  We will be leaving on October 21!  House sitter in place; kitty food in stock (even though we no longer have a cat but this feral seems to think that we need one); all is well.  So excited to reunite with returning stitchers from the Party on the Po and to get to meet new participants who are joining us for the first time!

To follow our stitching adventures be sure to join the group Needles 'N Fins Stitching Adventures - that's where it is all showcased!

Here's my packing so far.  This is an extra checked bag that contains 'stuff' for our first night together at the hotel in Prague!  Next up is seeing how much I can get into carry-ons and Bill's backpack.  Unfortunately, I must allow him some room for his snacks.  

Today I have been working on adding clasps to some of the mini-workshop options - this peyote stitched bracelet.  There are so many options and I cannot take a picture that will do them justice!

Another mini-workshop option is the kumihimo bracelet project.

And as returning participants know - there are surprises along the way!

Okay - gotta get in gear here!  Have a great week!
