New Kelly Classes & Clubs!

I am most excited to tell everyone about the Classes I am teaching and the
New Club that I designed.


 Starting with Alison's Club...

A Winter's Village II

for Alison Hodgkiss at A Stitch In Time in San Marino, CA.
It is the sequel to the First Winter Village:

They were actually designed to be one Large Winter Village,  
with 9 gourgeous buildings and 5 charming small pieces.
However, for the sake of our Stitcher's
sanity, Alison and I decided to split them into two different Clubs!
Just image all of these wonderful pieces on a buffet in your dining room at Christmas!

Feelin' a Little Bit Witchy!



WHAT?

Has Kelly lost her Mind?
It's nearly February...time for Valentines, not Witches!

HOWEVER, 

I am thinking ahead.  Really.
Look who has Arrived!

Ratt Z. Witch 

KCN 9136 & KCN 9136 SG

available thru your LNS



 She is stitched, finished and Stitch Guides are Printed!

Rattzy joins a long line of Witches in the Kelly Clark line...
We have her 1st cousin:

Elvira Spidah

KCN 9138 & KCN 9138 SG

available thru your LNS

(Elvirah is quite the vixen, and no one has figured this out,
but she is a TRUE Black Widow...her husbands mysteriously
die or dissappear and leave her their$!)

Then we have her Auntie Stirah: 

Stirha-Cauldron copy.jpg

Stirha Cal Drone`

KCN 9127 available thru your LNS &  

KCN 9127 SG available only thru Amy Bunger 

Stirha is a real troublemaker!  No one but Amy knows the secret recipe' she is
stirring up in her Caldron, but it definitely contains 'eye of Newt'
so my guess is that it is a lethal concoction!

Next is 1st Cousin on Dad's side of the family:

 Katt Z. Witch

KCN 9125 available thru your LNS &  

KCN 9125 SG available only thru Robin King 


Katt is demure and shy and a touch snobbish!  Don't Tell!  
She is into the Dark Arts and feels that mere Witch-Craft
is beneath her...
plus, she is always ready to dole out a dose of
Cat Scratch Fever from one of her 
Black Cat Minions!

Then we have Legions of Little Witches:

Alexis Arachnid & Marni Morbidia

KAH 13 & 15 with SG's  available thru your LNS

Alexa Stitched.jpg Marni stitched.jpg 

 


Cruella Crow-a-Bout & Felicia Felinius

KAH 14 & 16 with SG's  available thru your LNS

Cruela Stitched.jpgFelicia Stitched.jpg

 Jacquelyn Jack O'Lantern

KAH 18 with SG  available thru your LNS

Jacquelyn Stitched.jpg


So, indeed Rattzy is in Good Company!

She is stitched, finished and Stitch Guides are Printed!
Have your LNS call

Kelly Clark Needlepoint at 

The Colonial Needle Company 

to order today!
If you want to put a new Witch in your 2016 Halloween Display, 
there is no time like the present!
