New Prairie Schoolers / JCS DVDs

New:  Prairie Schoolers


Updated: Not listed in the PS Inventory quite yet nor as the latest designs, but you can direct link to the booklets and Annual Santa.

Booklets:







Miss Fortune - 97h x 75w - a witch holding a crystal ball with "13" inside it. What's with all the 13's? (The 2 Halloween minicards I stitched I reversed the numbers to 31.)  (Not sure of direct link)

Annual Santa - 75h x 56w - a caroling Santa singing "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" (Thanks Pam and Nancy!) 

Freebie:  Frolicking Santa with bag and tree

New: Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornaments 1997-2013 DVD

In addition to Just Cross Stitch's 2 DVDs of each and every page of it's back issues from 1997 through 2010, fully searchable, including the Ornament issues, Just Cross Stitch has just issued a Christmas Ornaments 1997-2013 DVD with 1000+ patterns, fully searchable PDFs and printer-friendly charts. Check around for the best prices. And be sure to make at least 1 back-up copy, preferably not to USB, or to both a DVD and a USB.  You never know what's NOT going to work when you really need it.
  

(I give up trying to fix the formatting - grrrrr! )
