New Stuff…at The Frame Corner!
This month, we have new display decorative platters arriving soon. Even more eye-catching
than the black/brown/copper/gold glass platters we brought in this winter, we know these
decorative platters will not stay in the store for very long. We’ll post pictures of the new platters on
our website just as soon as the platters arrive.

We have new over-dyed fabric in a variety of colors; some have sparkles added to the over-dyed
fabric which make cross stitch pictures just pop! Priced well, these fabrics will not last long!
Don’t wait too long to make your selections! .

Edith Mack,      Our Favorite Needlebug




        Found this article in a country paper and thought I would share:


         With time we gain weight
         Because we accumulate so much information and wisdom in our heads
         That when there is no more room, it distributes out to the rest of our bodies.

         So we aren't heavy, we are enormously cultured, educated and happy.
         Beginning today, when I look at my butt in the mirror,
         I will think "Good grief, look how smart I am!"




Stitching Tips

                        Scissors are a cross stitcher’s best friend
                       (BFF – that stands for ‘best friend forever’!)

Yes really, embroidery scissors are a cross stitcher’s best friend. To ensure your threads are cut
neatly, the blades of your embroidery scissors should be kept sharp. Protect the blades by using
your embroidery scissors to only cut threads. Dull scissors leave your threads ends rough and
difficult, if not impossible to re-thread onto your needle . Many stitchers keep their embroidery
scissors in specially made leather sheaths or boxes.

If you check the work boxes of fellow cross stitchers, you will likely find that they keep a pair of
everyday scissors handy to cut things other than threads. As well, you will also likely discover

another well kept secret. Most cross stitchers are collectors of embroidery scissors. In their
stash, dedicated cross stitchers likely own ten or more pairs of specialty embroidery scissors!

For expert advice and if you need a professional opinion, see Tammy or Katherain with your
needlework questions.
