Mrs. Gritzy paid us a visit the other day and she brought a fabulous new selection of adult and child-sized aprons with her! One of my favorites is this coffee bean apron:
Mrs. Gritzy also knits great kitchen scrubbies and washcloths, among other things. You can find her on Facebook here.
ALL of her aprons are available in the shop or on our website! We are currently re-vamping our online shop and are adding new items every week. Bookmark www.eclipsegalleryshop.com and check back often. Here’s a direct link to the aprons.

Lookout–we just got in 11 new hand-sewn bags by Gayle Gentry!! These have become very popular and it’s easy to see why–each bag is a unique blend of style, quality, and function. Gayle is a local Algoma artist who creates not only these bags, but also wallets, hiking belts, and **coming soon** summer dresses!
I know a lot of ladies have been waiting for these to arrive, so come in soon to get first choice! Gayle has even create one bag that is a slightly smaller version for the petite gals.
Here are a few examples:
Join us on Sunday, the 24th, between 3-5 pm!!
This will be the first meeting of the newly formed Stitch ‘n Sip group (sorry we had to cancel the last one!) and we hope that as time goes by that lots of people will be able to come to this informal and fun gathering. Bring your own project (knitting, sewing, embroidery, crochet, etc.) or work on a community or charity collaboration that we provide. Whether your work is alternative or traditional, beginner or advanced, everybody is welcome here.
The sipping part is that I will be serving wine, coffee, and water. You can feel free to bring a different beverage and a snack if you like. Also, if you have any fiber/textile books or magazines that are interesting and inspiring, feel free to bring those to the meetings as well.
I’m excited to announce that the gallery has sponsored a Dream panel for the upcoming Dream Rocket fiber community collaboration organized by Jennifer Marsh and the International Fiber Collaborative. Check out this website to learn more about this ambitious project and then come to the Stitch ‘n Sip meeting to add your contribution to the panel. Our work will then be installed on the Saturn V Rocket in Huntsville, Alabama!
Also, I have started a blog for the group, which you can find at http://stitchnsip.wordpress.com. We can keep updated with each other and post pictures of our projects. If you would like to be an admin, just let me know what your email address is and then you can post directly on the blog.
