Deerfield Weekend.

And what a weekend it was.  We had such a great time.  Booth set up was a breeze - must be because we just do it so much.  My friend who helps me couldn't make it so my husband came and we made a nice weekend out of it.  After the booth was set up and the crowds came through on Friday we had dinner with Sheryl Blais ... a magnificant jewelry artist.  Check her out at  Her stuff is amazing.  Tell her Michelle sent you.

Joining us for dinner at Bertuccis was her niece Kate and our friend Joy Lancastle Schuyler, herbal chef and herbal remedy maker.  Her products are so soothing.  When you have an ache or a pain as I did during the show, her herbal wraps are the only thing that works.  Her scents are a dream and she's a hoot to boot.  Visit her at!/pages/Chepachet-RI/Rhode-Island-Soapworks-inc/113921631969476

We were very happy to see Denise Davis from Sassafras Hill Primitives once again.  She is one of the nicest women I have ever met and she does unreal PRIMS!! 
She was sold out and still has more shows to do this year. 

Saturday was just  crazy but we did offer our free (yup free) workshop  This year we made a wool felt Christmas Tree ornament and the girls AND BOYS just loved it.  I made a new friend name Ryan and he had so much fun making his. 

We had a great time once again.  Next year join us.  You will definately have a great time.

If you were at the Deerfield Show and found out that we had totally sold out of our new Cardinals In The Pines, finished creations, kits and patterns, you're in luck.  We have restocked and now have the pattern and kits available for you.  The Pattern is $8.00, the Kit (which includes all of your wool, you floss and a full size pattern) is $52.00 and the finished item (by special order only is $70.00. 

Everyone was also wild about Snow Moms by Penny Lane Primitives (she's so awesome) and we once again have that pattern in stock as well.  Interested in a finished creation??  Email us for delivery times.  It's getting close to the holiday so we can only take so many orders prior to Christmas.

Sweets, peppermint sweets.  Yup we ran out of that kit as well and we are restocking those as we speak.    Kit is $22.00.  Pattern is $8.00

We had a wonderful show season and after a very brief holiday, we are finishing up our special orders.  If you have an order pending, IT'S COMING......

It's Deerfield time again and after a very busy year we are really looking forward to seeing all of our friends. We will once again be vending with lots of great new finished items, new patterns and some wonderful kits done in 100% wool.

Workshop you say....of course we say. Both Saturday and Sunday (we will let you know the times), we will be offering a workshop, kind of a make it and take it. This year it will be a Christmas ornament....sssshhhh that's all you get. Make sure to sign up early as these workshops fill up fast and are limited to ten people in each class.

So make sure you stop by our booths 256 and 257 to sign up.

Did you Vote??

Did you Vote - I hope so...

This weekend is the beginning of a whirlwind of activity for Rocking Chair Stitches.  After a brief vacation (always much too short, don't you think), we will be heading to Boston, Massachusetts and our first time vending at the Boston Christmas Festival.  We are looking forward to it as a first timer and all the New Englanders that will come to visit 100,000 strong at this award winning event.  We will be demonstrating as always, introducing a couple of new patterns and welcoming a helpful friend from Pumpkin Patch Primitives from nearby New Hampshire and we are stoked.!!

Join us if you can and if you can't check out our blog and our website over the weekend for a special surprise or two.
