Homes for America (Melissa Prince and Patricia Sone)

Melissa Prince's new Homes of America series is coming right along.  Two are finished with stitch guides by Patricia Sone.  You can see photos on Facebook of the snowy cabin and the Southern plantation.

There are eight typical houses in all and as they are five inches square, you can stitch the houses you've lived in as well as the ones you would love to live in and frame them all together or make a nice long pillow.

Mod Ornaments (Eye Candy and Sandy Arthur)

Sandy Arthur is finishing up her Mod Ornaments mystery cyber class now and getting ready to start another.  She posted a photo of the finished piece for us all to admire.  (Remember, this was a mystery class where no one, not even the teacher, knew how the piece would turn out.)  Sandy will have the stitch guide for this gorgeous Christmas piece ready for sale.  You can order the guide directly from Sandy's website (second link below) or your local shop can order it for you when they order your very own Mod Ornaments piece from Eye Candy Designs.  Mod never looked so good!

Fancy Stitches Has Guides

Fancy Stitches in Cleburne, Texas has a series of classes each year which are listed on their website.  In exploring the current class schedule I realized they offer kits of threads, stitch guide and canvas for previous classes.  They are still offering Mile High Princess' "Curly Witch with Apples" (stitch guide by Sandy Bailey), Sew Much Funs' "Christmas Friends" (stitch guide by Sandy Bailey), and Shelly Tribbey's "2014 Santa" (stitch guide by Gayle Anderson).  Contact the shop for details if anything here catches your eye.
