Thank You everyone!!!

Wow! What a weekend! Thank You everyone who came by for the "Nashville Open House". On Saturday and Sunday many loyal customers and some newbies dropped by the shop to see all the fabulous new designs from the Nashville Needlework Market.

You will notice that I have no pictures to show for the event. I forgot to take a picture of the room with all the new patterns and then people started arriving and I was busy, busy, busy. Taking pictures was the last thing on my mind. Fortuantely Dani took some snaps and has posted some on her blog so you can check them out here.

I was thrilled with the response of my customers and am so pleased that we have such a great cross stitch communty here in Brighton.

I want to give a special thanks to my good friends Marie Paule, Dani and Christin without whom I could not have managed. I was busy in the shop and these three looked after customers who were looking and had questions. They generally initiated more and more people into the cult! It was great!

Katie brought a friend from Kingston. Wendy, Marj and Anita came all the way from Whitby, Oshawa and Toronto (respectively). Marsha and Kathy made phone-in orders from Pickering and Arizona (!). Do I have great friends and customers or what???? I picked up a couple of new customers from Brighton and Havelock...there are stitchers everywhere! Isn't it great that there is such a community of stitchers out there? never mind out there...here in little Brighton!

The door prizes went to Adriana from Trenton (93 years young this August and still stitching on 28 count) on Saturday and Janet from Brighton (just started stitching last fall) on Sunday. Both were delighted to be winners!

And I can't say it enough...Thank You Marie Paule...what a great friend and ambassador for cross stitching!!!

I am tired. Tonight we are watching the NASCAR race which we taped this afternoon and generally taking it easy.

Thanks again everyone!
