Cajun Corner - Vol. 4, No. 50

Cajun Corner – Vol. 4, No. 50 – December 30, 2012


Bon Jour!  Welcome to Cajun Stitchery’s weekly email and welcome to our family.



Don’t forget to visit us at,, and, often.   We are also on Twitter and Facebook.

It is almost 2013.  Have you made any resolutions for the upcoming year?

2013 should see Cajun Stitchery’s workshop move into the house next door.  Finally, we will be able to spread out and have room for all of these machines, fabric, thread, etc.  Oh, that will be so nice. 

Hopefully the Etsy Store will take off in 2013.  Although the Etsy Store has been in existence since 2009, it has never really taken off.  It has more and more sales each year, but still not the quantity that it should.  There is potential in that store.  The owners just need to learn how to work it.

The first in-the-hoop purse that we made and listed on Etsy has been purchased.  Let’s see how long it takes for the next one to sell.  You never know if it was the purse or the embroidery that sold.

Also on March 5, 2013, Cajun Stitchery will celebrate its 4th anniversary. 

George will begin working, hopefully, full time at Cajun Stitchery in 2013.  He will be doing the embroidery for logos, tee shirts, ball caps, etc.  We have to keep George busy, so place your orders for your teams, organizations, groups, etc.

On a sad note, George’s mother passed away last night.  She was 88 years old.   It wasn’t really unexpected, but you never are ready, either.  She and dad had been married for 68 years.  She was a wonderful woman and loved crafting.  She embroidered, made jewelry, and just about any craft you can conceive, she did it.  She was a navy veteran of WWII.  Her occupation was a medical claims adjuster for CNA Insurance Company.   She raised three wonderful children.  She will be missed.


Happy New Year

Found the following at
Cliché is something that has been repeatedly used to the point of losing original meaning. The word "cliché" comes from the days of moveable type, where each letter had to be set by hand into a framework before printing. Commonly-used phrases were kept, pre-set in clamps so they could be regularly used without having to reset all the letters individually each time. The clamp that keeps letters together to form these oft-used sentences or phrases is called a cliché. Some of the popular cliché’s include:

Good things come to those who wait.

Boy meets girl. Boy falls in love with girl. Boy loses girl. Boy gets girl back. The End.

A penny saved is a penny earned.

There's plenty more fish in the sea.

You can't teach an old dog new tricks.
