First and most importantly I will be working with Leigh from The Needle Bug at Callaway's School of Needlework. Leigh is hosting the Boutique during the 2 sessions of classes at Callaway Gardens. Leigh has arranged a great line-up for all the days of classes. The most fun part is that I will get to put my 'retail' hat on for the first time in 3 years. You don't have to be taking classes to come see us or to come shop. the Boutique and book store will be open to the public and we would love to se everyone there. If you need more info please contact Leigh @ The Needle Bug, www.theneedlebug.com.

Another thing that is very exciting for the needlepoint world is that when we go to market in Feb 2013 we will be showing all brand new designs. There will be over 75 new designs. I am keeping a notebook next to the bed so when I wake up with another new idea I can write it down. So that is keeping me really busy.
Also, I am in the process of designing the stitch guides and stitching the Cross Club pieces for The Needle Bug. This club is to begin in March 2013. All of the crosses have been designed by different artists. Labors of Love, & more, Birds of a Feather, Raymond Crawford, and Kirk and Hamilton to name a few.
Lastly, Bonnie and I are designing and stitching the 'Cluck of the Month Club" for Needlepoint This. Raymond Crawford has designed the most fun chickens. They are all named for your favorite chicken dishes. My thought in finishing the chickens would be to finish them with hard backs all connected on a large stiff ribbon. Then tied around a fabulous basket.
So, needless to say the paint and needles are flying here in Dallas.
