A year in review
of pattern designs
brought to you
Country Stitches - With thy Needle & Thread...
The year of 2011 was a good year for Country Stitches - With thy Needle & Thread. There were a few firsts for us in 2011...
Began our first Mystery Sampler Club (Birds of a Feather),
reproduced three antique reproductions samplers,
started a new monthly series,
Designed a limited edition pattern
for all the eagle followers
of the Decorah, Iowa eagle cam.
A donation of over $2000.00
was made to the Raptor Resource Organization
of the proceeds
cross stitch chart.
As 2011 is coming to an end and we hang our new 2012 calendars,
I reflect upon the past year
and look towards the new year...
what to bring our customers
in the form of needlework patterns
for the upcoming year???
I am always open to your comments,
so let us know what you'd like to see
in patterns from us.
I tend to follow the saying, "if it's not broken, don't fix it"...
so you can expect more new pattern designs
in cross stitch and punch needle,
as this is what you all seem to be wanting from us.
It's been fun hearing from customers who are now
getting back into cross stitch,
many haven't picked up a needle and linen in 20 plus years
we are also hearing from new customers
who want to learn the art of punch needle
on a daily basis...
A NEW pattern series
will be released in 2012
that I'm very excited about!
Stay tuned for more details to come..
think wear them around your neck...
This series will include cross stitch, punch needle & wool applique/embroidery.
Also in the plans for 2012
are more antique samplers, from my personal collection,
will be reproduced.
More of my punch needle designs
will be converted into cross stitch charts.
And a few surprises are in store for you in 2012,
we'll keep them,
I'd like to say "THANK YOU"
to all our customers
for supporting Country Stitches/With thy Needle & Thread
one of our best years
I appreciate your patronage, loyalty, friendship
and enjoy keeping you all in stitches.
Wishing you all a
