Our custom painter Christine designed and stitched this carpet and unfortunately I don't recall the exact size but it at least 5' x 7'.  Remarkable!!!!!!!

This is a purse design that Eileen stitched for her daughter, Emma, because she liked the pattern and had it transformed into a beautiful pillow.  Think outside the box and you might end up with a spectacular finished project from a sale canvas too.

Here is the pillow I made for my grandson - large but really soft.  Great for TV watching - of course you would have to flip it over to keep it clean.

These Kirk & Hamilton Designs are now 20% off while we host the Trunk Show.  They are 7 1/2 x 71/2 on 18 mesh and also available on 13 mesh.  The canvas comes in either white or ecru.  You are able to customize your design by switching colors, animals and letters.  They make terrific pillows for any child as well as nice inserts on tote bags.  Shot me an email if you are interested.

Judy made this pillow awhile ago and had displayed it in the shop attracting many people to stitch it.  Look closely at the fabric she chose to complete the finishing.

Gretchen made this wonderful gift for a family member - a great surprise.

The Trunk show has arrived.  Please stop in the shop to see all Kirk & Hamilton canvases that have arrived from England.  If you are unable to come in, check out their website for more canvases.  I will share with you some of the fun and sophisticated examples.  All Trunk Show canvases that are ordered will be 20% off and if you bring back a completed Kirk & Hamilton canvas by May 16th (my daughter's birthday) you will receive 20% off finishing as well.  These will not be considered part of Resolution Stitching, which makes this an added bonus!  So take advantage of this offer and treat yourself to something happy or elegant.  Vanessa
