The Burlington Country Historical Society has re-focused its mission of telling the rich history of the County to children and their families through new interactive exhibits. The sale proceeds of the needlework and furniture from the Society’s collection will be used to develop these participatory exhibitions and interpret the significant roles of transportation, agriculture, the military and Underground Railroad in the development of Burlington Country, New Jersey.
Excuse me. What about women’s history? APPALLINGFrom:

A quality I like about Sandra's pieces is the simplicity and calmness they have and yet remain strong artistically. When so many designers bend towards a shock value with humor, color and style Sandra Gilmore's pieces are not about this. Below is a child reading a book to his/her stuffed toys; a phrase about seeing the moon and one good old fashioned Frosty the Snowman. Is it just my age that appreciates these? When a canvas is also just good art it looks great in simple stitches, or is just one kind of thread. Basketweave in Splendor? Needlepoint doesn't always have to be about outdoing the piece you just finished. Oh, or if your like me and hardly finish anything its nice to have a simple piece to have on hand when your too tired to think or need to give your mind some time off.
The Sandra Gilmore Once in a Blue Moon Trunk Show continues till the end of the month. See a portion of the canvases on our web store, or call for a specific favorite.

Sandra Gilmore, otherwise known as the designer of Once in a Blue Moon, is truly a master of the needlepoint canvas. This is one of best received trunk shows the Nimble Needle has sponsored and most everyone has trouble deciding which canvas they like best, with many buying multiple pieces. Her canvas's are painted with great precision, otherwise known as stitch painted. Often canvas's that have alot of detail are nothing but a guessing game when the needle hits the canvas. Not the case here! Stop in and enjoy. For an overview, her designs can be seen at their web site. All trunk show canvas's are 20% off, including the threads for each if bought during the trunk show. I will be posting many of her canvas's on my web store, so for those who can't come by and see for themselves please take advantage of this "internet trunk show".
