Greetings from HON!
We are thrilled to see so many weddings taking place. A bride-to-be came to us with her wedding crest and asked us to have it painted on canvas for a ring bearer pillow. The finished product is a beautiful keepsake. Contact us about creating a canvas for your special occasion.
As we reported last month, we are NOT requiring vaccinated customers to wear a mask. We have noticed many customers have started wearing masks again. Beth, Kim, Mabel, Kathie and Katherine have decided to wear masks when there are customers in the store. It is still your choice to go with or without yours.
If you are not vaccinated PLEASE WEAR A MASK for the safety of others.
We continue to monitor the incidents of Delta Variant Covid cases and reserve the right to return to requiring customers to wear a mask despite their vaccination status. The safety of our customers and colleagues is our number one priority. We continue to provide hand sanitizer and disposable masks at our door.
Thank you for your understanding and your continued patronage. We will keep you updated if we change our protocol.
STITCH OF THE MONTH
DIAGONAL LEAF STITCH
The body of this bird, featured in the Charley Harper Pillow in the Finished Projects Section, is a variation of the Diagonal Leaf Stitch. It’s worked in the opposite direction with individual diagonal stitches worked in the center of the leaf.
TIP OF THE MONTH
Our regular Stocking Finishing Deadline Has Passed but we have found another stocking finisher who will still accept stockings for the next month. They do a beautiful job. Contact us for details!
