BREAKING NEWS: Tony Minieri Resting Up

Fans of The Headmaster Himself will be interested to hear that he's out of commission for a bit due to health issues. He posted this on his Facebook page yesterday.

"Hi Everyone!!!

I have had a very , very busy year with many great classes and surprises. The biggest surprise was lower back issues that started developing in June 2016 and became intense enough to stop me in my tracks in October. Unfortunately , my body decided it was time to remind me exactly how old I am. I had to stop working in late October and was going to be able to go back to work in late January. The day after I stopped working I started Physical Therapy 3 times a week. It was grueling at times but beneficial; however not enough for the problems I have. 

I went to the Doctor today December 12, and after a new MRI and examination the Doctor told me that a new problem cropped up and this one is only fixable with surgery, so with in the next 2 1/2 weeks I will be going into the hospital for surgery.

It seems like it is going to be a bit complicated but my Doctor told me I will be out of pain, walking normally again and I will need some further therapy but different from the type of therapy I have been doing since October. He told me I should be fine to go back to work on March 1, 2017.

I am disappointed that I could not honor my teaching commitments but I truly have not been able to work. I have loved being home every night, sleeping in my own bed and spending so much time with my dear and wonderful Husband Luis, and spending time with Family and friends here in N.J.

I wish Every one Wonderful Holidays!"

And we wish Tony Minieri a great 2017 that is pain free and full of dear friends and family and wonderful stitching.

M.R.S. Embroidery's Trestle Frames

Folks who live in Great Britain or who prefer trestle style frames will want to read what Kathy at The Unbroken Thread has to say about the new trestle stands from M.R. S. Embroidery.

Trestle floor frames are made to lay your stretcher bars flat on top, then stitch with both hands, one above and one below the needlework.  These look solid and they easily come apart to be stored flat against a wall, under a bed, or behind furniture.  Nice job, Magda!
