This will be a quick update of what's happening at Arthur Acres.  Hubby is going through some bumps and is back in the hospital again.  So we are dealing with his issues - which, of course, have priority.

So just an update on the Uniquely Yours Series of Zoom sessions.  We are drawing near the end of our first series and have thoroughly enjoyed them.  The students projects are turning out amazingly wonderful and they make me very proud.  I am so pleased that they are enjoying themselves.  Actually to the point that most, if not all (I haven't double checked) have enrolled for Season II sessions.  We are in open enrollment so drop us an email at if you would like to join us or more information.  There are 10 sessions in a series and the dates work around holidays and contracts. The next series is scheduled to begin mid-December of January - depending on how hubby progresses.

We have some Chapters signed up for these Sessions for their National Teacher Series.  The next one begins January 2022.

It looks like the 3 Wisemen are passing the cute Buffalo Check Cardinal for our upcoming Online Classes.  

This is a very economical class as it is on a commercially printed canvas and is available in 3 mesh choices - 14, 16 or 18.  The design area is approximately 11 x 14.5" and the cut canvas is 15 x 18".  The classes will incorporate 8 sessions of online filed lessons in a private FaceBook group.  Lesson fees are $225, the canvas is $95 plus S/H (which includes a beautiful color print of the original painting) and threads from your stash or LNS.  If you need assistance for materials we will be working with a shop to offer kits so that you will have the exact same threads and embellishments used in the lessons posted.  When signing up a deposit of the canvas price will be invoiced.  The teaching fee will be invoiced a few weeks before the class begins.  Tentative date for beginning is March or April.  Email to sign up at

NEEDLES 'N FINS STITCHING ADVENTURES - sign up to join the FaceBook page

As shared earlier, this riverboat stitching cruise for The Netherlands has been sold out for quite some time.   An unfortunate incident has provided an opening so if you have always wanted to go and needed a roommate, now's your chance.  It is a first come first served situation so don't drag your feet if interested.  Contact our agent Liz at right away.

AND, get yourself registered for our Hawaiian Island Hopping Stitching Cruise.  We'll have lots of fun and some great surprised planned but we must have the minimum interest to register with the agency to go forward.  Check with Liz as above.

Until next week - have a great Thanksgiving (wonder what kind of Thanksgiving Dinner they serve at the hospital?)
