On The Road Again

2017 The Heart’s Content Travel Schedule

March 3-5, 2017 Nashville Needlework Trade Show WHOLESALE ONLY ! This annual event is for shopowners only. Our NEW designs for the year are released at this market, and shortly thereafter are presented in you local needlework shops.

May 18-21, 2017  Spirit Of Stitching in Winston-Salem, NC.

Second Annual Festival. The first was in October, 2016  in Richmond, VA. Most successful. Met so many new and avid stitchers and eager students in my classes. In NC I will be teaching five classes, and am most anxious to see you all there. Details will be available on their website soon. I’m sure many of you remember the good ole days of Spirit Of Cross Stitch. We are trying very hard to bring some of that flavor back to you stitchers.

August 23-27, 2017 Galleria Of Needlework, in St Charles, MO. Always aa great experience in charming Saint Charles! We love to return again each and every year. Please be sure to visit their website for classes I will be offering and other details of this fine event.

September 13-17, 2017 Stitching In The Heartlands, Branson, MO. We enjoyed all of you so much last year, we decided to return and offer several more classes. Margaret’s website will soon furnish all the fun ideas. Looking forward to seeing you all there again in September.

September 24 – October 1, 2017   2017 Stitchers’ Escapes Cruise to New England and Canada Boston to Halifax. Jean Farish and I will teach for the days at sea during this breath-taking cruise. I am presently designing a wonderful sampler with tribute to the history of the famous Halifax Lighthouse. Great capture of this magnificent structure of their history. What might top a luxurious cruise on Royal Caribbean Ocean Liner with two designers, classes, shopping in our boutique, and all the fun amenities of a cruise with several other stitchers.

Ports of Call with a day of leisure are:

Boston, MA (depart & return)

Bar Harbor ME

Portland, ME

Saint John, New Brunswick

Halifax, Nova Scotia

My special design will become a memoir of the most famous and quaint lighthouse @ Peggy’s Point, in the Halifax region. The detail of my design will take you back to this lighthouse for many years to come. Come stitch by the sea with us. Meet old and new friends, and those you didn’t even know you had. The comradery of our stitching joins others who share this love of needle and floss. We’d love to sail and stitch with YOU.

Three price tiers of rooms offered. One even includes your private stitching/sight-seeing balcony. Ahhh! Take me away !

Check your calendars soon, as the deadline for signup is fast approaching. May 1st is your deposit deadline.

For further information, please contact Jean, as she is the orchestrator of this Special Stitching Sail.


I really do hope you will join us for this great stitching ‘n sailing experience. Everyone welcome.

See you in September in Boston,

Keep your needle threaded !


PS. I will also participate in the FOUR ONLINE NEEDLEWORK SHOWS throughout the year of 2017.
