Christmas Reindeer Collage Mystery Class UPDATED

Ruth Schmuff's latest mystery class has started. This one features her Reindeer Christmas Collage.   Like all Ruth's classes, this one includes neat techniques (needle felting the reindeer) and interesting ideas (using a light coverage stitch in a different color for the background).  Stay tuned for more class photos as this mystery is solved!

MaryMac Has a New Website

MaryMac, well known for their belt finishing with ribbons, has a new owner, website and Facebook page.  The service specializes in ribbon belts and can even redo an old leather/needlepoint belt to freshen it up for you to wear again.  Please note that she doesn't accept finishing directly from customers, just from shops, so your local will have to arrange finishing with MaryMac for you.
