House of Needlepoint October 2020 News

 

Leaves are turning. Acorns are dropping. Squirrels are gathering them. Fall has arrived and we’re calling all creative DIY stitchers (or those who want to be) to enter our Create Your Own Leaf Contest

 
CHARLEY HARPER TRUNK TRUNK SHOW – OCTOBER
 
 
 
Many of our holiday finishing deadlines have passed.  We are no longer accepting ornaments*, stockings*, pillows*, bricks, picture frames and purses for our usual finishing.  With the pandemic our finishers have continued to move up their deadlines (many earlier than we originally posted) because they realize they will not be able to get everything done in time.  We appreciate your patience and understanding during this unusual time.
 
These projects can still be finished:

STITCH OF THE MONTH

 
 
The pale gray background on this Charley Harper kitty cat canvas is Byzantine Stitch, also known as a step stitch. It gives texture and movement to this canvas.
 

DIY FALL LEAF CONTEST

 
 
 
We thought it was time for another contest! So many people are stitching right now and looking for new things to do. This is the perfect time to get your creative juices flowing, use up some of your yarn stash and try a new stitch or two.
 
Stop by and pick up your canvas on 13m or 18m. They have been outlined with the option to make a round or square design.
 
 
Winner will receive FREE finishing and 20% OFF an in-store canvas and threads of her choice.
 

TIP OF THE MONTH

Try Fluffy Fleece for Santa’s Coat and Leg Cuffs. Rainbow Gallery’s Fluffy Fleece is over-stitched on top of the canvas with needle and thread to create a curly, fur like effect. Notice the cuffs on Santa’s hat trim and arm cuffs below. It’s a quick and easy alternative to doing Turkey Work or French Knots. It works well for beards and some animals also.
