One day it is springlike, next day it is raining and the  next day it is snowing or sleet! We are in the 30s, 50s, back to 20, and so it goes!

We will just roll with the flow and get lost in our stitching adventures.


    I understand that canvases for SeaShells on Shore have been mailed out to all who have paid.  Also class fees have been invoiced.  First class is scheduled for mid-February.

Very excited to start!

 Next is the class on the Ornaments Galore by JP Needlepoint.

So many possibilities for us!  This will be fun with beads, ribbon and who knows what else! To register for this 12 Session class email us at  Lots to share on this one too!


Adventures do not always need to be abroad.  We have lots of opportunities close by.  Have you checked out the upcoming Duo Designs Stitching Retreat September 22-25, 2023.  This Retreat will be held at General Butler Resort State Lodge in Carrolton, KY.  This location it within 40-45 minutes of Louisville, KY or Cincinnati, OH.  Beautiful scenery, lovely relaxing environment, good food and restful nights. Oh yes, and plenty of stitching. Go join the private Group - Duo Designs Stitching Retreats - and look over the brochure, check out the two class designs, and print out your registration form.  Email us at with any questions.  We'd love to have you join us and see what else we have up our sleeves to entertain you! Registration activity is picking up as we get closer and closer to the time!

Again, be sure to tell the Lodge you are registering with Group no 6066.


Greece will never be the same.  We will be invading the Isles in October!  We are excited to have the bonus of beginning our adventure in Venice! Those who have visited Venice before are looking forward to returning! I know we are!

This trip involves a wide selection of excursions so individuals pick and choose how they spend their time on the islands. 

Stitching will involve our first class the night before we board the ship!  Participants may purchase an optional trip-related design that will be taught if they choose.  If not, they are invited to bring something from their stash that they would like to receive stitch and thread suggestions from the teachers.

Our cruising will be on the beautiful Azamara Pursuit!  We have had the good fortune of enjoying this Ship before and had wonderful times and built beautiful memories!  

Email us us at to request your brochure, get details and ask any questions.

Until next week . . . .
