Hi Everyone!  
Did ya’ll miss me last week (please say yes, don’t know if my poor ole heart could handle a no…lol)?  I didn’t get a newsletter out last Friday 😦  Bad things happened at HeartStrings over the last week. My sites got hacked, store, forum, gallery… No customer info was compromised – just a bunch of nasty code written over everything. It’s all better now and my webmaster is going to make it even better! Watch for some changes coming soon 🙂 Good changes…
I am behind on answering email…if you have one out to me, expect a response tonight or first thing tomorrow morning.
~ Have a great week and may blessings be yours ~

PrimiStitch Club embroidery designs out!!!

Wow – it was a rough month this month but I managed to get PrimiStitch Club designs out, only 3 days late!  lol  I knew saturday was the 14th and tuesday was the 17th but somehow missed the fact that the 15th fell somewhere in the middle… 

…to top that – my website got hacked and that threw me into a tail-spin.  What purpose did some idiot have to come into my site and post all kinds of stupid code all over my pages?  I mean really don’t they have anything better to do than mess with those of us hard-working folks???  Yea I’m pretty ticked and upset about it. 

Anyway – this is my monthly embroidery design club.  Every month you get 10 great prim and country type designs.  It’s starting it’s third year!  I was afraid it wouldn’t get past the first 3 months!  lol


Well I hope everyone has a great thursday!  It’s Survivor and CSI night!!!  It’s mom’s night to veg out, eat popcorn and watch some tv!  I look forward to thursday night all week!!

Happy Stitching,  Stephanie

It’s Thursday… busy busy

It’s Thursday…I know… so what!  There’s a thursday every week…lol  Thursday in the world of me means designs to get ready for friday release.  It’s stitching and snapping pictures, converting designs and zipping, uploading and writing listings.  It’s a busy day for me. 

 Today, so far, has been even more busy than normal.  I wrote an article for Stitches Magazine that I hope to get published.  It’s for their ChitChat column.  I hope they like it.  🙂  I’ll keep you posted on whether it gets selected for the magazine or not.

 New on HSE’s homefront – a new monthly club is coming soon.  The old club, PrimiStitch Club, isn’t going anywhere, this is a new addition.  I don’t have a name per say just yet but will soon.  It’s an entirely exclusive club.  The only time these designs will be available on HeartStrings will be through this club.  It’ll be cheap, maybe $5 a month, $50 for the year.  I’ll keep you updated on the progress and when it’s open for member signup.

I added a new page to HSE’s site.  It’s Previous Releases and it will show what new designs are available every week in thumbnail view.  It will be a quick and easy way to see what was put out a couple weeks ago. 

Well back to my machine.  It’s stitching out a gorgeous willow tree design for tomorrow release.  I’m partial to willow trees and saltbox houses, if you can’t tell by my site! lol  I really like this one and think it’s going on a pillow for my couch.  Now to just keep the dog away from it….Huckleberry seems to have a fondness for embroidered items.  Maybe the threads taste good??? 

Until tomorrow when I post new releases.  Have a great thursday!!!

HUGS, Stephanie
