Dear Friends,
This note is written with sincere care and concern for your safety and health.  When I closed the doors of The Wooden Needle on Saturday March 14, I did so with a quick prayer of hope that I would unlock them quite soon.  Two days before that I returned from CT with my Dad knowing that what I was hearing develop there was not a good situation for him and felt that I could "keep" him safe in our home in VT.  How easily I forgot that this was not in my hands!  Through the grace of God my family is peaceful and well and, dear ones, I pray the same for you.  I hope that our shared love for needlework has brought you some peaceful moments in your home these past few weeks.  My days are very busy with some house renovation, cooking and care for my "guys," but I do settle down every night with needle and thread.  What peace that is! 

Although I have not ordered anything "new," the shop still has alot of inventory.  I'm offering 10% off your total order + shipping.  Don't forget that I will still custom cut linens if you can provide the stitch count.  There are cross stitch charts, magnets and other notions.  "Vermont" and "Stowe" needlepoint canvases are on the boards as well.  I'm not re-ordering thread lines right now, but there are many skeins still on the hooks.  I will need the color number or name:

DMC floss (number)
Classic Colorworks (name)
Gentle Art Sampler Threads (name)
Weeks Dye Works (name)
Silk & Ivory (name)
Vineyard Silk (name)
Watercolours  (name)
Snow metallics (name or number)
Pearl Cotton 3 & 5 (DMC number)

Please let me know if I can help to keep you busy and sane.  The best way to place an order is through email.  I travel to the shop about twice a week and the phone order messages are getting quite lengthy for the answering machine. 

I wish you all peace of mind and heart and look forward to your visits again soon to beautiful Stowe .
With sincere gratitude for your friendship and loyalty.
Xrossing in Friendship,
