Covid-19 can't keep a good stitcher down!  Most all of us have developed a new appreciation for our 'stash'.  While we formerly used to refer to our stash almost in embarrassment, we now embrace it with a new joy and love!  ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’• At least I know I have. (Well, actually I always have loved my stash.)

This past week we started our first class for the ANG virtual Seminar.  These guys have a lot on the ball.  I am sure our volunteers had no idea they would be faced with so many uncharted challenges to put on a seminar!  (you do realize that other than the event planners our group is comprised of volunteers don't you?) Hats off to all!  You are doing a great job considering all the obstacles that have been thrown at you!

My first class was for Crazy Needles Journey. Everything for Lesson 1 ran very smoothly!  Thanks to all those behind the scenes to make sure all are taken care of!

One session down and two more to go!  Lots and lots of things going on with this beauty!

This coming week we will begin another ANG Virtual Class Flags of Glory by Paul Brent artist.

This Virtual class will be made up of 4 sessions.  Can't wait to share!


Invoices are being processed for this handsome guy (or beautiful gal).

You still have time to join us.  Just send email to us at and we will get you enrolled in the class.  The 6-lesson packet is $150.  Students should be ordering their canvases and gathering their materials from their LNS now.  

For those who have already processed their invoices, an invitation went out to join the Secret Facebook Group.  There you will find the materials list.  You should have ample time to gather your goodies.  For those who need assistance please email us at and we will put you in contact with shops that are kitting the class with materials we used on the model.

NEEDLES 'N FINS STITCHING ADVENTURES  - hop over and join the group

This past week I have been 'filling' the Pacific Ocean for our Hawaiian Island Hopping Stitching Adventure set for April! I was lucky enough to get my model from the painters.  I'm trying so hard not to hop around much but as I stitch I always think 'wonder what blah blah would look like over there'.  Of course, I must do the blah blah and find out - so much for the Pacific Ocean for the time being. I'm anxious to get the model done to share with you!  It will be a true souvenir of our Hawaiian Island Hopping Stitching Adventure.  Be sure to check it out.  A brochure is on file in the Needles 'N Fins Stitching Adventure Group - go join if you are not already a member. You can also email us at

With the scent of autumn in the air one's thoughts venture into all things fall and Halloween.  Check out some of our fun stitch guides over in our Etsy Shop - duodesignsbySandra!

I'll go back to the Pacific Ocean now.  Have a great weekend and please stay safe!
