Chrissy’s Progress: Heirloom Butterfly Sampler

Chrissy (our amazing bookkeeper) is part of the Heirloom Butterfly Sampler club and sharing her progress!

First she used the Easy Count Guideline to mark her fabric, and she’s stitching in an 11×11 Q-Snap frame (with Grime Guard). Here is her first progress picture!

Her biggest tip so far is to:

Photo copy the pages that have the outline stitch and highlight the stitches off as you do them.

If you are stitching this club, we’d love to see your progress too. :) Share with us on Facebook or Twitter.

New Clubs for 2011!

I’m excited to introduce two new clubs for 2011!

Debi has designed some fantastic canvaswork seasonal “snowflakes” (because each one is unique, hehe) that are amazing – she’s got sparklers and fireworks for the 4th of July, a beautiful rose bouquet for Valentine’s, a totally kicking Celtic knotwork piece for St. Patty’s, plus I’ve gotten a sneak peak at the Easter bunny basket (uhyep, adorable) – and many more for the seasons and celebrations throughout the year! And you get to work with all kinds of snazzy fibers and embellishments as well as learn some fun and funky stitches.

Roz has once again created some stunning Hardanger patterns, but this time she has turned them into gorgeous bookmarks and bellpulls. Signature stunning Watnemo designs with vibrant fibers on lacy edged, buttery Lugana!

In addition to these lovely patterns each month, club members also receive special offers and coupons throughout the year just for being part of the club! It can’t get much better than that (unless we could make a stitching-time-creation-machine so we could stitch whenever we wanted! Hmm.. we should work on that ;).
