Trying to beat the summer heat?  Come into Chaparral and find a new project.  We're receiving canvases from the June market on a daily basis.  There are a lot of pictures on our facebook page, so "friend" us to see more.

Here are just two of the many that have arrived.  Wouldn't it be fun to stitch this "Wine Country Woodie" using lots of silk ribbons and beads?

Melissa Shirley Designs Trunk Show
This "Day of the Dead" canvas is one of Melissa Shirley's new designs that recently arrived.  We will be having her trunk show from Saturday, August 11st through Saturday, August 25th.  So make your wish list!  All of Melissa's designs will be 15% off during the show.  You can see them at

Carolyn Baird has outdone herself again with this precious series of 13 Christmas hearts.  The canvases are from an assortment of needlepoint artists, and are adorable.  The series will start in September, so call the shop ASAP if you are interested in participating.  You can see all of them on the Chaparral website.

Please stitch quickly as our finishing deadline for Christmas is quickly approaching.  The finishers will not accept any "rush" orders after September 9th, so if you need your piece early - let us know when you turn it into us.  The deadline is Saturday, September 15th, which means you will get your finishing by Christmas Eve.  Happy Summer Stitching!!
