Dear Friends,
What a great summer so far!  It has been such fun seeing so many of you in the shop and  I love "catching up."  Over these 13 years I have enjoyed sharing our family stories, travel adventures and of course helping you to increase your stitching stash.  The shop is stuffed with models and I feel blessed to spend each day in such a happy place.  As I look ahead at The Wooden Needle's busy "Fall Foliage" season, I encourage you to visit our beautiful Vermont or if you're a local, take a day to play in your own "backyard!"  The end of summer is so lush this year.  Today is a magnificent 72° with a beautiful breeze -- perfect for a hike or bike ride or stitching on the deck. 

A few "stitching" notes:

*New ornaments have arrived from Susan Roberts Needlepoint Designs.  This company continues to be one of my favorites.  Her designs are simple and colorful; ready for unique stitches or great threads.  Before Sept. 15, any Christmas ornament canvas order from this company will be 15% off.

*Speaking of threads, the Vineyard Silk line was recently increased in the shop.  This beautiful 50/50 -- silk/wool thread is perfect for 18 mesh canvases and it's so soft.  Let me know if I can help you with colors.

So, dear friends, enjoy the rest of summer -- play, rest, revive ... and of course stitch!  Please remember before traveling to The Wooden Needle to call the shop first.  Below are some important dates if you are planning to visit:

Saturday, August 26 the shop will be closed to celebrate a family wedding.

Fall Foliage hours: open every day Sept. 12 thru Oct. 14 (but don't forget to call for hours because it depends on the day)

Thank you again for your continued business and loyalty.  Best wishes for a peaceful end of summer! 
Xrossing in Friendship,
