Recently, our store copy of Stitches To Go by Suzanne Howren and Beth Robertson began falling apart (we use it every day here at the store). So Vanessa decided to take it to the local Staples and have it laminated and bound so that it'd be able to better weather the daily Stitch and Chats and inquisitive customers. It turned out so well that we've had several ladies from Stitch and Chat do the same with their own personal copies of the book!
Then Irma, one of our employees, came up with the idea of making a live version of the stitches in the book so that people could see what the stitches looked like finished. We've been stitching away in our free time, flying through the stitch after stitch and putting them on small canvas cards for display.
Here's what some of the one's we've completed look like:
So if you have any questions about what a stitch would look like once it's complete, come on in and ask away!
