You're invited to join the 2018 Threadventure!

Grab your calendar, a notepad and a pen…

We have some planning to do! I can hardly believe that it’s only three short weeks until we head out on our 2018 Threadventure. Can you?! (Wondering what the heck a Threadventure is? Click here to read all about it. ;))

Not sure if the 2018 Threadventure is for Y-O-U…

Well, if you’re always on the “look-out” for terrific new stitches to use on your needlepoint projects, then you’re going to L-O-V-E it! It doesn’t matter what your skill level is because there’s something for everyone! 

And the added bonus? You’ll get some awesome tips for threads you can use to create a variety of textures on your canvases. So, you see – if you’re a stitcher (novice – advanced!), then the 2018 Threadventure is the perfect way to add to your needlepoint skill set. And the best part? It’s going to be sooooo much F-U-N!!!

Grab a your calendar and a pen...we have some planning to do!

Ready to get started?

Go ahead and turn to May 31 on your calendar, and then mark every single Thursday – including May 31 – all the way through August 30. Why? Because Thursday’s are when we’ll hop on the Serendipity Express to our next Threadventure destination and I don’t want you to miss anything! Sound good?

Now, let’s make a list of what you’ll need to “pack” for our virtual needlepoint vacation…

  • 13 mesh needlepoint canvas*
  • 18 mesh needlepoint canvas*
  • size 22 tapestry needles
  • size 24 tapestry needles
  • needle threader
  • stretcher bars (I use 8″ x 8″ bars for my doodle canvases.)
  • tacks
  • scissors
  • laying tool
  • Fray Check (or a Thread Zap)
  • water soluble blue marking pen
  • Rainbow Gallery Fiber Notebook packet or threads from your stash

*I’ll be using 8″ squares mounted on stretcher bars. Click here to send me a note if you don’t have a local needlework shop or if you need assistance obtaining any of the supplies. I’m happy to help you. Just tell me what you need in an email and I’ll get back with you ASAP. 🙂

In case you’re wondering where we’re going on our Threadventure…

Here’s our first month’s itinerary:

  • Road Trip Launch Party: May 31 (details coming soon…)
  • We’ll start our 2018 Threadventure on the beautiful Gulf Coast in Seaside, Florida on June 7.
  • Next, we’ll head north for a cool escape to the Blue Ridge Mountains and Asheville, North Carolina on June 14.
  • Then, it’s up to historic Washington D.C. on June 21 for a visit to our national monuments.
  • And we’ll wrap up our first month in bustling New York City on June 28!

Wondering how all of these “stops” relate to your needlepoint hobby?

Well, that’s the surprise (and “adventure”) part of our Threadventure! Just remember that we’ll be using those gorgeous Rainbow Gallery threads to learn and practice all kinds of different decorative stitches that you’ll be able to use on your needlepoint projects.

Keep an eye on the Serendipity Needleworks Facebook page for updates and click here to join the Serendipity Needleworks Facebook Group if you’re not already a member. (Why should you join? Well, it’s FREE and I have some surprises up my sleeve for group members. Plus you’ll get to meet other super-terrific folks who share your love of needlepoint!)

Until next time…happy stitching!

XOXO!!!
Stitch with a smile!

 

PS: Be sure and type “I’m IN!” in the comments box below if you plan to join us! The more the merrier!!!
And remember – you can use threads from your stash; it’ll still be oodles of fun! 😉
