We have arrived in Dallas and are busy setting up our shop for Destination Dallas 2014. After months of preparation including long nights of painting, designing stitch guides, and tons of help from my family and friends, we are one day away from our first trade show!

Our entire collection of canvases and stitch guides will be available for purchase by those attending the trade show, including new designs I have just completed. Some of the new designs include the Animal Silhouette series, which currently contains six canvases painted on 13 mesh. Here are images of two of the canvases from this series.

We also have added our new “Sayings” category. The song “What a Wonderful World” is a family favorite and holds a very special place in my heart. The words of this song and the memories it creates for me inspired me to design this canvas.

If you are attending Destination Dallas, please come by our shop in room 412 and see our complete collection. If you are not attending Destination Dallas, but you know your local needlepoint store has a representative at the show, please encourage them to visit us.

I am extremely grateful for the assistance of my mother and sister who have helped me prepare and are in Dallas with me, my father’s encouragement, and the love and support of family and friends.
