A Cozy Country Christmas

Free Project Instructions!

 

Cozy up to Christmas with an exciting new array of designs, just in time to deck the halls for the holidays!

Those that still believe in Santa Claus will love new designs that feature the Jolly Old Elf in a classic, primitive style. Words like "Believe" and "Joy" and "Love" and "Warmest Wishes" spread holiday cheer to wall hangings, door hangings, and pillows.

Buon Natale, Feliz Navidad, and Frohe Weihnachten. Any way you say it, it means Merry Christmas! New saltbox houses with winter and holiday motifs have "Merry Christmas" in different languages arched above or below. Beautiful on towel sets, quilts, and sweatshirts, too.

And there's more! Stitch a four-panel country scene, with Santa flying through the night sky, or red-and-green squares of Scottie dogs, goose, rabbits, and other holiday helpful critters.

Make Christmas homecomings bright and heart-warming with these new designs, filled with cozy, country flair!

Add color and creativity to
your home with a fabulous
Stuffed Fabric Wreath.

Autism Awareness Lace Ornament Cover
(A Design Request of the Week!)

Darla. T. from Michigan has already made an impact in the lives of many. With her creation and sale of the Breast Cancer Awareness lace ornament covers to local Santa shops, she has been able to donate portions of each sale to the Karmanos Cancer Institute to aid in the research of breast cancer.

Having had such success with Breast Cancer Awareness, Darla took up a cause closer to home. 
She says, "My nephew has Autism and when my brother-in-law saw the Breast Cancer ornament he said, 'What about a puzzle piece for Autism?'.  I thought it was a great idea! I plan to do the same with the Autism ornaments and donate the proceeds to our local chapter of the Autism Society of America."

With Autism affecting 1 out of every 150 births, and having no known cause or cure, it is important to help raise awareness of this disease. This delicate, lace puzzle piece ornament cover pays tribute to those battling the disease as well as those helping to fight it.  Thank you for such a wonderful and inspiring suggestion, Darla!
 

Available in three sizes:
6.40"X4.14" and 4.82"X3.12" and 3.87"X2.50"
