Here at the Parish we love our handwork. Each month our Hand Embroidery Club meets for a lovely tea party and an afternoon of handwork. In June we will be starting two new Blocks of the Month. Both from Crabapple Hill Studios. One is called Deck the Halls and the other is Snow Globes. These are great projects to bring that festive touch to your home during the holiday season!

Snow Globes
Deck the Halls

Each of these projects features a coloring technique and then the hand embroidery of course. It really has a lovely finished effect.

Not into hand embroidery? We also love our applique here at the Parish! Kathy prefers the 'prepared' applique approach, which gives you a needle turn look. Watch our calendar for an upcoming class.

We are also getting into wool applique. Here are some photos of the Words to Live By project I'm working on for Shop Hop.

And if you've been watching our Facebook and newsletter we are now carrying Hand Dyed wool from Olympic Wool Works. The gal is from Port Angeles, so when you are purchasing her wools from us you are supporting two local businesses!

Hope to see in for these new additions. Happy stitching and may your bobbin always be full!
