New year, new projects

Every new project generates excitement at NeedleWorkPress, much the same way great enthusiasm greets the new year. We're so pleased that the 1745 Boston Band Sampler gracing the cover of our 2015 Book of Days will soon be available for you to stitch more than 250 years after Martha Edes took her precise and colorful stitches. We're equally thrilled to bring you a 1799 reproduction we're calling "A Mother's Sampler" because of the precious little girl standing next to an adult woman on one side of the sampler. There are a couple of other surprises in store as we prepare for Needlework Market, scheduled for the end of February. We hope the year ahead is a happy and healthy one for you, with plenty of time for stitching new treasures! Happy New Year from Maegan & Vickie.
