What’s New This Week!

Our Tuesday morning group just completed their container project and again I am amazed at how the choice of fibers individualizes each one. We have a new project starting soon so call if you are interested in this great group.

 Cool Tools


 This daylight Ultra Slim Magnifying Lamp is Maryann’s favorite.  According to Maryann, because the lamp is right under the glass there is no distortion and is the best for detail work.

Kathy swears by this slimline table lamp for everything from sewing machine tables to splinter removal duty. 


These needleholders with their magnets are even big enough to hold a pair of scissors.

  And of course you have to have a designer threader for all those needles in your new holder!

   These small scissors are reasonably priced and come in 3 colors. You can put them in your new  needle box above!

Just in Wall 


How Fun!!

Happy Hippo! 

Beile Edelstein has been pumping out ornaments at an amazing rate this year!

What could be more appropriate for Florida than Mindy Aikens flamingo coaster.

 The Final Touch



Phyllis Soldinger’s pillow came back from the finisher with stunning, bold fabrics and trims.





And we also think the finisher made some particularly complimentary fabric choices on Bella Vainstein’s pillows. 



 Are these not adorable?  Congrats Nancy Beale

Vicki Hucks had better send us a picture of her tree next Christmas because at the rate she is stitching she’s going to need a 20 foot tree. 


Bonnie Nielson stitched her family coat of arms which I am sure will be passed down for generations.  Beautiful job Bonnie.

Absolutely Fabulous Class: An on-going weekly class meeting Tuesday’s at 10:30AM.   A wide variety of decorative stitches are incorporated into a fabulous Holly-original design.

This is a lively and friendly group who share a passion for learning new needlepoint techniques from each other.
