A New Look!

This past weekend some friends and I visited The Attic Needlework Store. This was our first visit to the store since they moved to their new location. The store is much larger now and the lighting is wonderful. The classroom area is also much bigger in the new store. Everything has not been unpacked yet but, Jean and staff didn't disappoint. Everyone found something to add to their needlework stash treasures. I can't wait to go back after all those wonderful samplers are back on the walls.
Of course the main purpose of our visit was our ASG Retreat. The project this year asks the question 'May I Have This Dance?'. Rae's description says it all. "A collection of stitching and sewing accessories that celebrate the custom of dance cards and boutonnières, glamorous silk purses and dance slippers of the Victorian Era." Our practice piece was this dance slipper pincushion.

 

Thanks fo stopping by,
