Meet Tess Kvale the artist behind the needlepoint canvas line Pewter and Pine. I had the pleasure of meeting Tess at the Dallas Market this past year. I just finished stitching her “To the Mountains” ornament and am looking forward to catching up with her again in person in a few weeks at the trade show in Orlando!
Happy Saturday, everyone! This morning Needlepoint.Com sent out an email blast featuring one of our all time best selling kits- the Christmas Candy Tree Online Class. Well, it went crazy! By 10 am all the kits we had were spoken for. I couldn’t believe how fast they were gone- I am so sorry if you missed out.
Now that we are closing in on the end of February, it is clear that spring is on it’s way! While it doesn’t quite feel like spring yet in Colorado, I’m excited to know that soon there will be less snow to shovel and warmer weather.
That means that Easter is headed our way soon too.
In honor of that I wanted to share with you Needlepoint.Com’s “Egg-cellent” Easter club.
Meet Diane! The artist behind Pepperberry Designs. You all should know from previous posts that I am a big fan! I’ve stitched several of her designs including this darling First Christmas as a Pair Ornament.
We love Diane’s designs so much that we have turned two of her best selling designs- the Peeking Reindeer and Ho^3– into online classes complete with canvas, thread pack, stitch guide and access to videos that never expires. You can see them here on Stitch Style first!
If you’ve been reading along for a few years, you will know how much I LOVE Melissa Shirley. All of her canvases are so darling. Not only is she an incredibly talented designer, she is just as kind a person as she could be. Back in the day, when Stitch Style was just starting out, I wrote stitch guides for several of her pieces. Lots of birds with hats, and a beautiful angel tree topper that is one of my favorite pieces I have ever stitched. She really helped me get my business started. I can’t thank her enough for that!
When James initially told me we were moving to Colorado Springs next I was excited- but really had no idea how much I would love the mountains until we were here. After living (literally) in the middle of nowhere in Missouri, we feel spoiled to be surrounded by so many amazing things to do. Between the Garden of the Gods, the Broadmoor, the zoo, tons of amazing restaurants and lots and lots of hiking, we are never bored. We may never want to leave Colorado!
