Myrtle Grace Motifs - June 2014 Newsletter
Dear Friends of Myrtle Grace Motifs!Summer just about here! One of the best parts about this spring has been seeing all the spring flowers sprout up. Since this is our first spring with house with grass, it’s been fun to see the flowers. My personal favorite is finding out all the bushes along our fence are lilac bushes. There is nothing quite like the smell of lilacs in the air. This month we have some travel so lots of punching planned, a new release, and even one of our patterns published in a magazine!
New Pattern – Stars in my EyesWe have a new pattern for release this week - another punch to cross stitch conversion. Stars in my Eyes is stitched with Weeks fibers and attached to Weeks wool. The Ackfeld hanger only adds to the charm. This pattern is available on Friday, June 6 from both Hoffman and Norden Crafts. Norden also carries the punch needle pattern..
Trade Show Survey Ever wish you could give your 2 cents about trade shows? Here is your chance! We put together a very short survey to get a better feel what you, our customers, would like to see at trade shows. Please take a few minutes to give your feedback.
Cross-Stitch and Needlework MagazineHave you wandered through the pages of the July issue of Cross-Stitch and Needlework Magazine? If you do, you will see a dandelion blowing in the wind. We were thrilled to have our dewing chosen for the magazine. We plan to release a cross stitch version so stay tuned.
Punch Needle PlaceThere is a new community on the web to join other punch needle fans and share what you are working on, ideas and ask questions. Punch Needle Place is a Facebook page setup to chat about Punch Needle. Please join yourself and forward to your customers.
