So much going on here at Arthur Acres in preparation for the classes scheduled for the rest of the year. I don't know how I end up getting so many things going on when my intent was to back off a little - LOL. Well obviously I have not grasped that concept yet.


Registration is now closed for the upcoming Chinese Lanterns from JP Needlepoint.  It amazes me how much joy I get from playing with various areas and threads all the while thinking of you the participants.  

When I think I outdid myself on one area along comes another full of surprises!  I can't wait to share with you.

Due to the manufacturer shipping schedules we will hold off beginning this class until mid-August.  I would like for as many as possible to have their supplies before we start.  I know that is disappointing as well as I know that none of you have anything to stitch on (remember I know who you are - lol).  So just chill for a couple more weeks and we will get going.  It will be well worth the wait!


As noted below we have a lot going on in August.  If you have not yet registered for the NeedleFest in PA be sure to do so before it is too late.  Our Pumpkin Spiced Tea class includes interesting stitches and threads and one of the highlights is needle felting and other stumpwork techniques.

Beading on Needlework is another workshop.  Here we will share information about the different beads, how to attach, what to look for, etc.  These techniques can be used for cross-stitch, needlepoint and most embroidery mediums.

Next up is our Retreat with the Needlework Guild of Minnesota on August 10 through August 14.  We have had to reschedule this fantastic group a couple of times and now looks like we're gonna make it!  The airline tickets have been purchased!
We start off with a cute pincushion that is a 1-day class.

We have some news about our participation in the upcoming Boothbay, ME Retreat hosted by Art Needlepoint Co.  The $150 deposit is now refundable. The full registration fee of $795 includes the breakfasts and dinners, door prizes, etc.  

We have so much to cover in this 2-day venue!  Our Sunday Dress has been such fun to stitch and I know you will enjoy the adventure as well.

DAY 10

Another memory filled adventure with great friends must once again come to an end.  We all gather up our belongings and head to the airport to catch our various flights home.  During this hustle and bustle we begin rearranging our mind set and thinking about the reality of our day-to-day lives again.  

But in the back of our mind lurks the vision of our next adventure to Greece!
