What a day!

"Well Maggie Muggins, I'd say you've had quite a day!"
Did anyone else ever watch Maggie Muggins on TV when she was a little grl, or was it confined to Ontario in the 50s? Anyway I felt like Maggie Muggins on Saturday and I'd say we all had "quite a day"
45 stitchers came to our stitching day from all parts of Ontario from Ottawa in the east to London in the west!
We stitched!



We displayed our beautiful work....








Some took a break from stitching, eating and enabling to play light sabre star wars with their cell phones!
We ate well.
Many many stitchers also took time to shop and for that I thank you very much. Knowledge and Needles had a very good day! Of course I am happy to have the business, but really what thrills me the most about the day was joining my friends, new and old, in doing what we all love. The coming together of so many diferent people who share the passion for stitching is a cause for joy and the sight of the amazing work we all produce is a cause for awe!
I feel so fortunate to have found such a supportive and wonderful group of friends.
Thank You so much.
