Road Trip to Favorite Framer

Hello Friends~

It has been such a long time since my last post. Hope all of you are doing well and enjoying the beautiful weather. I wanted to share a few pictures of the last road trip I went on with Bethany (JoAnn Hoffman's Daughter) JoAnn Roll, Rhonda, JoAnn Hoffman and myself.  Our first stop was to The Crafty Ewe, no pictures there as we were in fabric heaven, buying fabric like it was the last we would ever see!! LOL If you're looking for a certain fabric, give them a call. Their selection is awesome.

Then our next stop was to Just Stitching, We are crazy about the framer there, Bonnie. She has an eye for framing that is just out of this world. Both of these shops are up in Cleveland, and well worth our drive. 

Then we drove to Montrose, to let Rhonda run into Old Navy for a capri buy, then we stopped at Mally's Chocolates, then lunch at EarthFare. It was a great day with wonderful stitching friends.

I'll be posting a day at JoAnn Hoffman's house where we stitched, ate, laughed and Bethany did some hand dying of fabrics we brought along with us. Bethany lives in Florida and she was here in Ohio visiting her Mom, we try to see her as much as we can while she is in town. She is like her Mom, a very skilled needle 
woman, making wonderful samplers as well.  

Best Wishes~

Here is the famous Bonnie, the woman who frames many of our needlework pieces. She comes into Just Stitching to meet with her clients. JoAnn and Rhonda are in deep decision thinking!!!!!

Here is Bonnie with JoAnn Hoffman, who only stitches reproduction samplers. She is an amazing needle woman, at a young 83, I can only dream of doing some of the pieces she has done!!! We adore JoAnn, she is a wonderful friend to many in our stitching group.

Here is JoAnn's Sampler, Ann Wragg. She has picked out a beautiful frame!!!

That's so cool that you know the famous Joann and Bethany! I used to belong to a board that they were members of -- they are amazing! Love seeing the pics of everything and everyone! I want to stitch Ann Wragg someday too -- Joann's is gorgeous!

Sounds like a great road trip. It's great to have a talented framer helping with all those choices. Ann is beautifully stitched.
