Greetings from HON
It’s so much fun to open a new box of fibers, especially Silk & Ivory, and see the beautiful colors bundled together. As the pandemic has caused a slow down in the ability to restock some of our favorite fibers, it’s a joy when they arrive. Many threads are starting to come in a little more quickly but we appreciate your continued patience when we don’t have the color you need.
We have decided going forward we won’t accept fiber exchanges or credits. We are a happy to hold back a skein or two of a color/dye lot you may need for a project you are stitching for up to 3 months.

TIP OF THE MONTH
CHOOSE YOUR OWN FABRIC FOR FINISHING
This stitcher used a print cotton fabric depicting birch trees to inset and welt her Kathy Schenkel moose canvas. Choosing your own fabric can add a touch of whimsy, elegance or pizzaz to a finished project. Try looking at Good, Goods in Darien, Banksville Fabrics in Norwalk and online at Fabric.com

STITCH OF THE MONTH
The water background on the spectacular box below is a series of horizontal stitches over four. The chart above shows where contrasting colors can be added. The stitcher here randomly over stitched a metallic accent where she wanted.
Graduation & Bridesmaid/Groomsmen Gifts Too
QUICK & EASY
With Father’s Day and Graduations fast approaching there is still time to stitch a canvas insert to put into a luggage tag or snap tray. The trays are perfect for loose change, cufflinks, whatever.
Luggage tags, snap trays and small round jewelry boxes make great attendant gifts. Our artist can paint customized initials and monograms. They make a special personalized present.
