May is the month when we switch gears from the frenetic pace of our winter season to calmer summer months. We think May and November are southwest Florida's best-kept secrets - wonderful weather and a little less crowded than peak season here. Good information if you're planning on a get-away. And more time for an ice cream break!
Our final trunk show this spring is Edie and Ginger, known for their charming designs and beautifully detailed pieces, including this irresistible Panda.
And the best part is our trunk show discount: 20% off!
2017 Class News
Don't Let Artie Get Away!
Brenda Stofft joins us Nov 10-12 (please note date change) to teach her Artemis Bunny class. Brenda's designs are very popular here in 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 a few seats left - you will have to reserve yours now if you want to be part of this fabulous woodland adventure!
Class fee includes instruction, stitch guide, all supplies and materials (including some that Brenda is bringing specially from Europe,) lunch each day and a dinner/reception one evening. Definitely not something you'll want to miss!
