EDIT: It has been pointed out to me that December 26th is a federal holiday (just like January 2nd), so Needle Nicely will NOT be open that day. So four days next week and four days again the first week in January. Hope to see you then.
Needle Nicely will be open December 26th through December 30th, 10 to 5 as usual. We will also be open the next week, January 3rd through January 6th, 10 to 5. I didn't realize that, I think, obscure law, that makes January 2nd a federal holiday. Go figure. As I am still recuperating (and Macy and Marcia are both headed North for 2 weeks to visit family and friends), I can use the extra day off. I took massive doses of steroids from mid-November to the first week in December and my body is still trying to cope with the withdrawal symptoms. And my friendly diuretic, with which I have lost 15 pounds of water from my feet and lower legs, persists in giving me a wake-up call every 35 to 45 minutes. I'm sorry I didn't purchase stock in Charmin!
We've been in this location since the first of November 2005. There is a back pegboard wall that nothing can penetrate, tape will not adhere. We've tried almost everything. This time, I think we have the solution. We have attached a piece of fabric to the board above the pegboard. Now we can pin canvases on the fabric. It only took us 11 years to figure that one out!
