What's New at VEAC?

Christmas is Getting Closer!


Well, I have been very busy getting more Christmas projects to you. The list is growing by leaps and bounds. Before going into what is new, here are a few things you will want to check out, too!

If you haven't been over to lately, you should. They have all kinds of wonderful crafts to make. Two that caught my eye recently were the Vintage Tag Christmas cards and the Christmas chenille dolls. Be sure to check it out!

If you are in the San Fancisco Bay area, be sure to check out The Great Dickens Christmas Fair returning to the San Francisco Cow Palace Exhibition Halls for four weekends in 2010, including the Friday after Thanksgiving, from Friday, November 26 through Sunday, December 19, from 11am 'til 7pm. You still have time to visit. It sounds like a lot of fun!

Betty (a VEAC subscriber) wrote to me about it. She's one of the performers and has taken the time to teach embroidery to the 10 and 11-year-olds who are acting with her! Don't you think that is fantastic?

OK... here's some of the new items you now can find at Victorian Embroidery and Crafts:
