Greetings from Paradise!
It's Spring Break in full swing here. Fortunately we do not have a lot of wild antics to put up with - but we are having a lot of fun!
We are sorry, though, to tell you that our beloved Barbara Boulton will be leaving the area later this month. Read on for more details and to see the changes we're making to our beginner's classes and assisted stitch sessions. 



April Trunk Shows


Dahling, we love this piece from the CBK Trunk Show!
But that's not the only one - there are great pieces from Silver Needle and A Collection of Designs on display now, too.

Lots to look at, lots to choose from - and all at our trunk show discount of 20% off!
                                                                                      Sad to Say Good-bye
Barbara Boulton, who has been such a wonderful member of our team, will be moving away from the area later this month. Please come in any Tuesday or Saturday before Easter (April 16) to wish her well.
We take heart, though, that her talents will still be available to us from afar.
Barbara's Beginner Classes will be taught by a new instructor, Lisa Hawkins, whom we are delighted to welcome. Come say hello to her - she's here on Tuesdays.
Classes for 2017 are Filling Up Fast!
We had a wonderful time hosting Susan Portra in February, and if you missed seeing her then, we have good news: she returns to us in October for both her signature Bring Your Canvas to Life classes and private sessions. Her schedule is already virtually full; if you would like a chance to study with her next fall, please call us right away to check on availability.
Brenda Stofft joins us Nov 11-13 to teach her Artemis Bunny class. Brenda's designs are very popular here is paradise, and we're excited to offer you a chance to meet and study with her as she presents her 3-D forest rabbit affectionately known as "Artie." He is created entirely on needlepoint canvas engaging a variety of techniques and stitches. We have only three seats left - you will have to reserve yours soon if you want you be part of this fabulous woodland adventure!


Just in time for Easter: Enameled Eggs! 
We added over 200 pieces to Almost Paradise over the past couple of weeks. 
There's something for every skill level, from simple to complex. Vintage pieces that are out of production and pieces by designers you know and love. But once they're gone, they're gone!

Changes for Assisted Stitch and Beginner Classes
We're making some changes to our schedule. We'll now be offering Assisted Stitch from 9:30 - 11 on Tuesday (not Saturday) mornings. No reservations needed. One of our expert staff will be available to coach you through perplexing problems on a project for a nominal fee.
Beginner Classes will continue to meet on Tuesdays at 9:30. No reservations needed, but please check ahead with us to confirm the schedule. They'll be taught now by Lisa Hawkins, whose cheery smile will make your day. Lisa is an experienced stitcher who hails from Louisville, Kentucky, where she worked for Meredith Willett for a time. She now makes her home here in paradise and looks forward to introducing you to the world of needlepoint we love so much.

Final thought -
It has been delightful to welcome so many visitors and enjoy the company of our seasonal residents as well. We know a number of you will be migrating northward again later this month, so keep our phone number handy!
