"Starting August 16th Thru August 19th 2018, Cross Stitchers from all over the world will descend on a small Oregon town, Seaside, for the 3rd Annual Heaven and Earth Designs Convention, or HAEDcon, as itGs known in the Cross Stitching world. A Stitching Convention for cross stitching you say? Well things have changed. Gone are the days of cute teddy bears and flowers. HAEDCon is a convention sponsored by the locally owned company, Heaven and Earth Designs. Attendees come to see finished stitched pieces, socialize, and shop! Cross stitchers from all over the worldGIceland, Australia, the United KingdomGare just days away from meeting new friends, meeting old friends, and meeting the artists behind the work they stitch. Everyone has great ideas about spending four days stitching, but from past experience the amount of talking, laughter, GStitchtalkG, and adding to oneGs stash is a must for any attendee.A loyal following quickly came to Michele and Bob Sayetta, who packed up six years ago and moved from Minnesota to a small coastal town in Oregon. Starting in 2002, the Husband and Wife team changed how people viewed cross stitch. They began by creating the most stunning hand dyed fabric to be used for stitching. MicheleGs talent for color came naturally to the Californian-born computer programmer. This was the beginning of Heaven and Earth Designs. They then moved onto converting famous artwork into cross stitch charts by artists all over the world. Adding to these works of art, Michele and Bob also hand craft many coveted stitching tools. As well, they also feature beautiful linens and cloths from well-known manufacturers such as ZWEIGART, as well as stitching floss from DMC, direct from France. Heaven and Earth Designs has a small dedicated team that send out hundreds of the now famous Gpurple packageG to fulfill orders that range from a chart to fabric, floss and tools. The Heaven and Earth Designs Convention also features artists whose stunning pieces have been transformed into cross stitching charts. Returning for her third year, artist Aimee Stewart says, GIf a unicorn wearing roller skates and juggling polka dot lemurs streaked by just now singing the Macarena at the top of its lungs… it STILL wouldnGt be as fun as HAEDCon!GAlso joining Aimee this year are returning artists – Hannah Lynn Disney, Rob and Jean Carlos, Jeff Haynie, and, for the first time, we welcome artists Randal Spangler and Joan Marie.
