Saturday was our July EGA Chapter meeting. In addition to a class, business meeting, and luncheon, we had a stash sale. For $5 you could rent half a table and sell what you no longer needed. Also the sellers were donating 10% of their sales to the Chapter.
This photo is my haul.
Let's count it up. One large piece of yellow 18ct canvas that is perfect for my DebBee's Designs "Glitz and Glamour Topaz." Good thing I found the last of my thread requirements for this piece up in Connecticut. That makes 3 of her Glitz and Glamour designs that I have completely kitted.
One small itty bitty teddy bear hand painted canvas.
One handpainted canvas ornament of a flamingo.
One Stitch N Zip kit of sunflowers from Princess Cruise lines.
One crewel kit of thistles.
One DMC US Postage Stamp kit of a Reindeer with Flute. From back when stamps cost $.37.
One kitted design by Lucy Edmison - "Sondra's Pocket." One unkitted design by Lucy called Kaleidoscope One.
Two Rozashi kits by Margaret Kinsey. These have both been started.
One Jacobean Crewel Embroidery design by Nancy Williams that has been kitted.
One Elsa Williams Crewel kit that I have never seen before, involving foxes, hounds, and horses.
One Hemstitching class by Pat Donaldson called "Withdrawing the Mysteries." This has like a 60 page handout. Oodles of info.
One Kimberly Crum pin called "Earthbound" with canvas, beads, and charms.
One stumpwork course by Luan Callery "Fantasy Remembered." This piece was a prize winner at Woodlawn in 2008.
One sampler from A Stitch in Time called "Be Ye Thankful" with all speciality fibers.
Two issues of Piecework magazine, 3 issues of Needlepoint Now, and one issue of Threadneedle Street.
And fifteen charts.
No. I'm not going to tell you how much I spent except to say it was well under $100. And slightly over $50.
A needlework shoppers bargain paradise.
Let's do this again next year!
