A Happy Christmas to All!


Amazon Books

A very Happy Christmas to all in our little community here on Needle ‘n Thread!

My sincerest wishes go out to each of you reading this, that you have a peaceful, joy-filled Christmas, with innumerable blessings for you and all those you hold dear!

Let’s wrap up a few details for A Stitcher’s Christmas

Merry Christmas, 2018, from Needle 'n Thread

Getting business out of the way, I drew two random names this morning for last Monday’s installment of A Stitcher’s Christmas, featuring to lovely collections of books from Search Press North America.

Susan O from Ohio and AmyinVt will be starting 2022 with some wonderful additions to their creative libraries. Yay! I’ll email you both shortly!

Thanks to all who participated in this year’s series, and thanks to the small needlework businesses who offered such beautiful gifts!

Taking a Short Break

I’ll be taking a short break from the blog through January 3rd, while I work with Anna, my invaluable sidekick and handy-dandy elf, to situate many exciting things coming up in 2022 here on Needle ‘n Thread. I can’t wait to spend the year with you!

Merry Christmas, everyone, with my best wishes for a Happy New Year!

  5. Dear Mary,
    Merry Christmas!
    May all the blessings of Christmas be upon you and your loved ones. You are a star of joy that shines brightly for others. Thank you for everything you do for us. Especially the fun of A Stitcher’s Christmas. Through your inspiration and passion you encourage us. I hope that in 2022, I will become “a real stitcher” not just one that thinks a lot about it.

    Best regards
