The Ark finished!


I had so much fun stitching this piece from Kelly Clark and loved the results so much that I went for a custom acrylic box to display it.

My favorite frame shop did a fabulous job of creating the box. If your local shop can’t do this, try mine: The Framing Establishment in Jacksonville FL, 904-384-7724.

We have these wonderful new tree designs from Kelly Clark in stock now. There aren’t many left, and we don’t know if we might get more.

Kelly Clark trunk show

Kelly Clark’s trunk show landed on Amelia Island with over 400 designs. The show is over but we can order any of these for you.

For Halloween fans, there are bats and hats and creepy creatures. For Christmas, candies and apples, Santa’s and socks and more. Then there are the tassels, the Please Come In signs and At Home With Kelly canvases.

And to top it off, Kelly is introducing a new canvas artist, Dan DiPaolo, whose whimsical designs are irresistible.

These are just a few of the choices. Many canvases are painted on 13 mesh and many come with stitch guides. And yes, we have the mermaid featured in Needlepoint Now in stock.

Its not just about the shoes – sometimes a witch needs a glamorous hat to complete her outfit.

These 6 witches’ hats by Kelly Clark are so fun–and there’s a stitch guide that covers all of them. Imagine these beauties on a Halloween tree — tres chic!

For a limited time, if you buy all 6, the stitch guide is free.

MY canvas from Long Beach

Leave a comment

At each market I pick one canvas that I absolutely cannot live without. I put it in the shop and if it sells, so be it and if not, it belongs to me.

This market, I was stopped in my tracks by Kelly Clark’s Ark canvas with animal pairs. I looked at. I ordered other things. I had lunch. I went back and bought them all.

Kelly’s booth had the 3D mockup, the 18 mesh (or 13 mesh) ark canvas and a dozen 18 mesh animals, mostly from the African savanna (I think—I am nothing if not geographically and directionally challenged). The ark is available on either 18 or 13 mesh canvas, the animals only on 18 (forever and ever).

So here’s my plan…stitch the 18 mesh version, create a stitch guide and provide a 13 mesh guide on request. I am going to offer a 12 session class in our shop on Amelia Island. And then I am going to display the finished project in a prominent place in our home. I cannot wait to get started!

12 days of Christmas by Kelly Clark

1 Comment

With two daughters, I have two excuses (okay, three, if you count me) to stitch sets of things. In addition to stitching the 12 Days of Christmas nutcrackers by JB, I have started Kelly Clark’s 12 Days of Christmas. They are classics—I can’t decide whether to have them finished as ornaments or as easel-backed stand-ups for a mantel or sideboard. And here’s a holiday special—buy 11 and get the 12th free.

These are all available on our website. Also, this holiday season we are offering Free Shipping on US orders over $100.
