Kirk & Bradley Haunted House & Melissa Shirley Pumpkin Houses

 Kirk & Bradley Haunted House & Melissa Shirley Pumpkin Houses

Halloween is just a few days away and we will be having some specials on our in-stock Halloween canvases from now through November 4th.

Kirk & Bradley has designed a truly fun interactive Halloween Haunted House. The windows and the various pieces are finished with magnets so that they can be placed onto the house.    Use some glow in the dark threads for the ghosts, the skeleton & the moon behind the witch to help create a creepy Halloween house.  The house is on 13 mesh canvas and the interactive windows are on 18 count.  The best part of this project is that it can be handed down from generation to generation.   The entire set is on sale for $610.00.   If you would like us to kit it for you, we will give you 10% off of the threads.

The cute and clever Halloween Pumpkin Houses are designed by Melissa Shirley and a joy to stitch with their lovely autumn colors and fun textures.  We had a grand time stitching these for the store and watching them come to life; plenty of little details like the fences, doorways, crows, and pumpkins to keep your interest.

Purchase just one for your holiday display or all four!   When purchasing one canvas and the thread and bead kit you will receive a complimentary Stitch Guide.

When purchasing all four canvases and the thread and bead kit (many threads can be used on multiple canvases) you’ll receive the four complimentary Stitch Guides, one canvas will be 50 % off and when they are completed, one will be finished for no charge.  For more information regarding the Pumpkin Houses please call or e-mail the shop.

If you are a fan of Paul Gauguin’s paintings during his time in French Polynesia you are going to love this canvas.  The colors are extremely vibrant.  This canvas can be stitched using a variety of stitches and threads or you can create a 3-D canvas by doing various ribbon stitches for the leaves using River Silks 4mm or 7mm.  Use Entice or Neon Rays Plus for the flowers on the red dress.  Use an over-dyed thread for the sky.  Need more help with thread and stitch ideas just let us know.  The canvas is on sale today for $158 and if you ask us to kit it for you, we will give you 10% off of thread.  Give us a call and this beauty can be yours.

New Heidi Canvases

 New Heidi Canvases

A few Heidi canvases have arrived!  “I Love You to the Moon and Back” is a popular canvas that can be finished as an ornament.  You can add charms or a heart bead where the heart is.  To make it pop stitch the words using Entice, Silk Lame Braid or Kreinik.

Who doesn’t think of Christmas when you see a Grinch canvas?  Use Fuzzy Stuff for the body of the Grinch & Very Velvet for the jacket.  Do Turkey work for the trim on the hat and jacket.  If you hate Turkey work then do French Knots.

Keep the stitching simple for the colorful mitten and you can have that stitched in no time.   For the Joy heart consider stitching the words using Neon Rays or Neon Rays Plus.  Use your favorite metallic thread for the snowflakes.

Give us a call if something catches your eye!
