Celebration Stash Enhancement

Before I talk more about Celebration, I’d like to send out a big Thank You to Gill, who so kindly sent me the Margaret Sherry “Crafty Cat” chart that I’ve been looking for!

Thank you Gill!  Stitchers are truly a bunch of very nice people.

I love all of the stash I picked up at Celebration of Needlework last weekend. I picked up these goodies in the market:

I caved to temptation and got the souvenier bag, but I have to say that I love it and its twice as big as my current stitching bag.  I can fit sooo much stuff in there.  I also got two biscornu kits from Sweetheart Tree, the Just Cross Stitch Ornament Issue, a wooden thread holder, and some pretty scissors from the Silver Needle booth.  The fob on the scissors is from a Make-It-Take-It class that I did Saturday afternoon.

These are the gifts I received at the Friday Night Charity Event – a kit and hardware, a cute bag, a sampler of Zweigart cuts, and a piece of linen that has been hemstitched.  Fun Stuff!

Part of the Friday Night Event included bingo where everyone won something.  These are my three prizes – I’m happy with all of them.

Here is the chartpack and the class supplies I received with the class I took Saturday afternoon with Jackie du Plessis:

I had such a wonderful time.  In fact, earlier in the week I was thinking about how much I loved The Celebration of Needlework and spending time with my internet stitching friends.  I realized that due to schedule constraints, I only spent approximately 24 hours celebrating!

Soooo, I’ve decided to go to the next Celebration in Nashua at the end of April!  😀  I can plan ahead and spend more time!  So barring any unforseen financial or schedule issues, I’ll be there!  Any one else attending?

  1. Me, me, me! I’ve already shopped around for fares, hotel rooms, shuttle buses – I’m ready!

    Your stash looks vaguely familiar! – Oh, that’s right – I was *there*.

    You’re right, though – we were only there for 24 hours – we need more time next time around!

  2. Great stash 🙂 I’ve enjoyed reading everyone’s accounts of Celebrations, it’s something I would love to get to but I can’t see it happening in the foreseeable future.
