~ All I Want for Christmas ~

 Good Thursday Morning Friends & Folk ~
it is the day before our Holiday Open House!

wow, that went by faster than I expected it to ~ lol

I still have much work to do in the Shop & Studio...
... finishing up 'finished goods', dusting, polishing, etc.
then my hubby & I will head into our deep woods to cut fresh greens
to tuck in amongst our offerings ~ making for a truly simple Christmas!

🎄 🌲 🎄 🌲 🎄

I want to share something NEW with you,
that Peter has been working on ~ {he's always working on something for us}
Since I have been smitten with embroidery for a couple of years now,
I have used many different hoops and stands...
~ but by far, this is my all-time-favorite!

Introducing our new
"Embroidery Station"©
from Notforgotten Farm™

Peter used the 8" x 12" {approx.} base to one of our Stitcher's Trays 
{{ you know, the ones that clamp to the arm of your chair/sofa }}
but he left off the hinges so that I can use this on my lap or on a table...
the tray now serves as a perfect base to hold my box of threads 
and has a magnet for my pins/needles ~ 

then he added an adjustable wooden dowel to hold my beautiful
Klass & Gessmann Embroidery Hoop!!

if you're not familiar with these heirloom quality wide-rimmed 
embroidery hoops, you must try one for yourself!
these hoops have a burned makers' mark of a little cottage on the outer rim...
they are now made in Bulgaria {formerly made in Germany} from polished beech hardwood.

Peter also added a turned wooden knob for the hoop to adjust to just the perfect angle!

here is my work in progress in my hoop, attached to my tray below:
This Embroidery Station isn't just for 'embroidery' ~
use it for your cross stitch, crewelwork, 
wool applique and even small rug punch or rug hooking!

here it is flipped up, so I can check the back of my work:
my little box of wound-threads fits just right on my station!

With a quick twist our Embroidery Station comes apart easily for travel,
 and is lightweight and sturdy...

my hoop shown is an 8" Klass & Gessmann, 
~ we will offer our customers both 6" and 8" hoops for this station.

Price for the Embroidery Station with 8" K&G hoop is
$112.00 {plus shipping for Etsy or phone orders}

We will have a few Embroidery Stations available 
{with 8" K&G hoops only at this time} here in the Shop 
this Friday & Saturday at our Holiday Open House!

These will be available in our ETSY shop after the Holidays ~

Blessings from the Farm
