|Spring is almost here! At least by the calendar… But we’re still all wishing for a warming trend… In the meantime, the sun is out longer, giving us better light to stitch by, so take advantage of it before the ground thaws. Hats, cowls and mittens are still in demand. And it’s not too early to start thinking about next year’s holiday season, especially if you intend to needlepoint something.
We have a lot of traveling going on this month, as do many of you. Luckily, we have the best staff in the world, so while we’re away, you can always find a helping hand at 3 Kittens.

|Needlepoint Coaching Services are private 1-hour sessions that give you the chance to focus on your own projects with one of our staff. Here are some of the things you can do in a Coaching session:
- Collaborate on a stitch guide
- Learn how to work with silk ribbon or beads on your canvas
- Tweak an existing stitch guide
- Get guidance on reading charts and working techniques in an existing stitch guide
This is an opportunity for you to have some concentrated time and have one of our staff give you their undivided attention. Interested? Please ask us for more details and how to book a session – try it, you’ll like it!

Leigh Design’s Russian Santa Club
featuring our exclusive
Club includes five elements – the Holly Hills Santa, the Merry Mistletoe Santa, the Birdland Santa and the Northern Lights Santa, with our exclusive Snow Maiden canvas arriving as a companion piece to the Northern Lights Santa. Each detailed guide will include color photographs and charted stitches as well as surface embellishment techniques to evoke the elegance and beauty of these distinctive designs. Our vision for this collection is to finish them as domed-top stand-ups. Each one will have a stitched decorative border as a base and a beautiful blackwork background.
If you would like to stitch more of Leigh’s fabulous Santas, we will have stitch guides for all eight in the series – just let us know which designs you would like to add to our Club when you register.

| Did You Know?
We have two types of email news that we send out. On the first of each month (or soon thereafter) we will send out our full newsletter. In between, on Fridays, we send out our Friday News Flash. Occasionally – like this month – the first falls on a Saturday, meaning that you will get a news flash on Friday followed by a newsletter on Saturday. In May, we will have a newsletter on a Thursday, followed by a news flash on Friday. It’s just the way the calendar is!
