Good news and bad news

First, the bad news, from the TNNA market this past weekend: Lee's Needle Arts is closing after 40 years in the business. Theresa Lee has decided to retire. Good for her, bad for the needlepoint world. Lee's has brought us wonderful leather goods and beautiful canvases to enhance them. You can see many of the company's designs here and here. If you've always wanted some of these lovelies, get them now! Farewell Ms. Lee! Please enjoy your well-earned retirement.

But there's good news out on the web today, too! The catalog for next January's Callaway Gardens School of Needle Arts is up. I've never been to Callaway, but I've heard wonderful things about this relaxing stitchy getaway. I won't be able to go in the next few years either, but it's so much fun to read the course descriptions and drool over the lovely pieces. I'd have a really difficult time choosing which class to take. At first glance, I'm enamored of four or five of them. Have fun window shopping!
