There is a local saying around here that if you don't like the weather just hold on a couple days and it will change.  Just a couple days ago it was 18 deg. when I awoke and it was 61deg. by bedtime.  (That warmer weather didn't last very long - lol.). Currently we have folks dealing with flooding and we even had snow flurries this morning.  However . . . Spring is just around the corner!  We are ready for a change here at Arthur Acres.


We just completed this 10-week adventure and had such a super time!  So much creativity this group of folks!  It is always amazing to see how they accept the challenge I throw out to them weekly and make it work beautifully on their designs!  Some WIP pictures!

Stay tuned for Season III coming in the next couple months!  Email us at if interested in joining us.  We meet once a week on Wednesday night 7pm EST through Zoom.


As I try to get back to some degree of normalcy for me I am planning two new Online Classes.  

Registration is going on now for our Three Wisemen.  

The current plan. is for this to be an 8 session project.  We will post once a month once we begin.  Email us to join the class -

Next is a fun design that I have from JP Needlepoint.  I have chosen this canvas for its embellishment possibilities!  (This is the same designer of the Catitudes and Dog Gone Good that we did Online so you know it is going to be fun!)

The design area is approximately 12 x 14 .  Oh my!  Can't you just see ribbon, beads, dimensional techniques and textures all over the place. This project will encompass approximately a year of sessions.  Look at the detail in each of the Chinese Lanterns! Flowers, Fish, Leaves, Butterflies, Tassels, Medallions, Fringe - oh my!  When you are ready to commit to the project email us at so we can get your canvas ordered!

Next week we'll share some upcoming face-to-face classes that might interest you as well.  Need to get pictures together.

So far our Netherlands Cruise - Tulip Time on the Rhine - is still a go.  We are all getting so excited!  This cruise has been sold out for quite some time and we will be having a blast!

Next up is the cruise of Hawaiian Island Hopping - check it out - go to the private Facebook Group - Needles 'N Fins Stitching Adventures and check out the brochure.  If there is an issue email us at and request brochure.

Stay safe and remember to stitch with a smile!
