August has finally arrived, which means cooler weather is on the horizon and our children are heading back to school! With the kids in school, you’ll have more free time to start a new and fun needlepoint project. August is a great month to help students succeed and support education. Join BeStitched Needlepoint in giving back this month and helping fund music education for our youth. During August 1-31, 2014 every in-stock canvas you purchase in store or online, 10% of proceeds will be donated to the Phoenix Girls Chorus. (This does not include trunk show canvases). Phoenix Girls Chorus is a non-profit organization, serving girls and young women through Phoenix, Arizona and the surrounding areas. Their mission is to provide membership opportunity to all girls who demonstrate the ability, desire and commitment to excellence in vocal and choral performance, to enhance the quality of life in the community through music education and performance, and to create public awareness of the positive benefits of the choral art for girls and young women.
