We really enjoyed meeting so many of you at the York, PA Country Folk Art Show!

The show in York last weekend was really fun! What stood out was how happy the stitchers were to find Carriage House patterns from the 1990's readily available. Tim used a grid of our charts to create a colorful booth, plus, Kathy was there with her wonderful French Sentiments jewelry! Here's a surprise: The biggest seller was 1824 Valentine Bird, which is a punch needle chart designed by Kathy in 2007. This show was known in past years for punch needle enthusiasts; in fact, a woman taught the craft at those shows... Thanks again to all of you who stopped by! Marty

Correction on Island Sisters... wrong linen count on The Kernel

You can tell I'm new at this: the column headers on the Floss List of Island Sisters are reversed!  The column listed as NPS should read DMC  (and DMC should read NPS). Also, NPS 844's equivalent in DMC is #3821 (not 8822).

And The Kernel was actually stitched on 32 count Relic (not 36). Sorry for any confusion! Marty
