  1. Thanks for the plug for this wonderful show! I went a few years ago wanted to rush home and start needlepointing. There’s definitely stuff at this show you won’t see elsewhere.

    I’ll be there with my hand stitched paper art – please say hello!

  2. I am so excited! I had no idea this was going on! Thanks for the heads up!
