NEW THIS WEEK - October 15th, 2008


Give Thanks

Free Project Instructions!

 

It's time to gather together with family and friends and give thanks for all the wonderful things in our lives: The crunch of brightly colored leaves underfoot. A roasted turkey on the table and a cornucopia of garden delights stashed for the cold winter ahead. People to share them with.

This week's designs celebrate giving thanks with a spirited variety of harvest and Thanksgiving embroidery. A cornucopia of apples, pumpkins, flowers, squash, berries, and warm sentiments is here for your embroidery and crafting pleasure.

A set of thankful messages, harvest imagery, heirloom applique, and designs inspired by metal etchings are just some of the diverse embroidery styles you'll find below. And, by popular demand, cheery and chubby birds flock together to celebrate the season in a new Thanksgiving Tweet design..

Scroll down the page for a bounty of beautiful images, and enjoy creating and embroidering expressions of thanks!
