  1. Gee. Is your schedule for the Wisconsin stitches gathering published anywhere or is it a closed activity group?

  2. Dru told my group that we could purchase the mugs on Nov 21 at the store, that you will be there and take part in a make & take. My question…do I still have to pre-order the mug?

    Sent from my iPhone

  3. Fun pics to look through! Someday I will shop at the Menasha store when I head to WI to visit family in Fremont! By the way, it looks like the stitching Marsha is working on with the gingham is called Chicken Scratch! Very easy to do and so fun!

  4. For the ladies: Awesome work!
    For Lisa: Re-kit Summer Breeze, plz.
    Publish Luna pumpkin mat somewhere, anywhere! Just let us know so all can enjoy!

    1. Summer Breeze was a Summer Block of the Week probably had 600 fabrics in it….Please do the current blocks of the week…they are all good!
      Luna…will be available next Spring!

  5. All the projects were beautiful. But not as beautiful as the smiles on the faces of the makers. Loved the photos. Thanks Lisa.

  6. Beautiful work everyone! The name of the “fancy stitching” on the gingham for the mugs is a derivative from Hardanger. It’s of Swedish or Norwegian origin (I think) and sort of made a comeback in the early 1970″s and 80’s. I too have heard it called “Chicken Scratch”. Counted Cross stitch had really become popular and just sort of overshadowed it. I used to manage an arts & crafts shop at that time. Glad to see people still doing stuff like that!
