October Snippets
Dear Friends,
Almost done!  Just a few more weeks and The Wooden Needle will close its doors for business -- lots of mixed emotions going on right now.  The shop is so busy that I'm not sure that sad is an emotion yet, I haven't had time to feel it; however, as I help folks with new projects, I do know that I will miss this very much.  I know that many of you could not make your summer/fall yearly plans due to the pandemic and I miss saying goodbye to all you!  Those that did visit -- oh my goodness -- I am so humbled by your kindness and generosity.  But the doors are still open, so let's get down to business!

Very, very important please!  The shop is busier than ever, so when you call, you must leave your phone number and a brief message (time zone good if not Eastern).  I will call you back but it may be after closing.  All items are first come, first served.  An email is a great way to start so I know what to find if something is available, but I cannot promise you an order in an email at this point; it must be done on the phone with credit card info.  If you don't hear back from me if you send an email, I might not have seen it.

Still available to order are needlepoint canvases now at 50% off.  Please go to the website and be sure you refresh before you peruse because it keeps changing.  Also at 50% off are all cross stitch charts.  Unfortunately I can't "display" the charts, so that will necessitate a phone discussion.  Linens are still available -- many have been packaged into larger cuts at 20% off.  Also, there is a basket of many fabric cuts to "stuff" a bag for $5.

VERMONT cross stitch charts = $3.00

Lizzie Kate "bits" calendar: $15 ea.

There will be one more newsletter to tie up "loose ends" and say goodbye so please let me know if there is anything I can still do for you to enhance your stash.  I will do my best with what time is left.  The projected date to end customer contact in the shop is about Oct. 22 but it could be sooner as we will be dismantling display racks for another shop.  No more "mail" orders after Oct. 12.  Please phone the shop before you travel to be sure the shop is open that day.  My "planned" hours (subject to change) for the next few weeks are:

open Oct. 1 -- 3  10:00 -- 4:00
closed Oct. 4, 5, 6
open Oct. 7 -- 22 ??  10:00 -- 5:00

Xrossing in Friendship,
