Raymond Crawford at Serendipity Needleworks!

Friday, February 17
10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

What a treat we have in store for us at the end of this week! Nationally renowned needlepoint designer and artist Raymond Crawford will be at Serendipity Needleworks on Friday, February 17 from 10:00 - 4:00. I hope you'll join us for a fun-filled day with him. We always have a ball when he comes to Tuscaloosa and I'm sure that this visit will be the best yet!

We'll have his latest masterpiece, our very own exclusive "Sweet Home Alabama", displayed for you to see and will be taking orders for the first shipment. It's definitely a piece that every stitcher with ties to our fair state is going to want!

Raymond graciously sent us a wonderful trunk show, too, and it's brimming with loads of his newest designs, as well as a delightful array of finished pieces that are guaranteed to inspire you! These jewels are all on display at the shop right now, so shop early for the best selection.

Knitting Bliss Weekend!

What a wonderful time we had last weekend! It was filled with side-splitting laughter, exquisite hand painted yarn, lots of yummy food (including bowls and bowls of M & M's), expert tips and hints, as well as loads of inspiration from our guest instructor - and new dear friend, Chris Bylsma. We learned to think "outside the box" when it comes to choosing fibers for projects and we experienced - firsthand - the importance of gauge. Learning how to finish your hand knits with precision and finesse rounded out our time together. I've included some pictures from our fun-filled time together for you and hope you'll consider joining us in January 2013 for our next Knitting Bliss Weekend!
