Is it really here? Can it be Christmas already?! Yes, it can! Somehow this year has flown by, and once again it’s time to celebrate. At Keep Me in Stitches, we are in full holiday mode. In the spirit of giving we are having a Christmas sale. All the shop canvases are 40% off so if there is one that you have been pining for, or one that you know is perfect for someone else, now is the time to snap it up. The sale will last all month, and does not include the gently loved canvases.

   We will hold a pot luck New Year’s Eve party to be held on Sunday, December 31 from noon until 2:00. Bring your favorite brunch treat, or anything else that you like, and we will celebrate the end of one year, and the beginning of the other. We will be providing the champagne and other drinks. We would love to see all our old friends, and we warmly welcome new ones.

   Our schedule will remain the same over Christmas, and we will not be closed any extra days. We will be open the day after Christmas and New Year’s as usual.

   Looking ahead to the new year, Patricia Sone will be in our shop the Sunday and Monday of February 11th and 12th to teach a class. The canvas is the Williamsburg Wreath by Melissa Prince, and it is beautiful! Do come by the shop to see it. The class fee is $325.00, and the canvas is $173. This piece is destined to become an heirloom for sure. Please call the shop to make your reservation for the class.

   Finally Julie and I want to wish each of you a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year. We are grateful for your support of our store and for your friendship. Have a joyous and peaceful time with your family friends, and we will look forward to a bright new year.

Ruth and Julie
