2012 Catholic Homeschool Conference

Half of Catholic Embroidery's Shopping space at the conference

This year marked 4 years of our attendance as vendors at the St. Louis Catholic Homeschool Conference. With the entire lower level of the Cardinal Rigali Center filled with Catholic vendors of all sorts, the best of educational and Catholic-based items were not lacking... from textbooks and reading treasures to host of holy cards and and the best in beautiful images of our Faith in all forms of art - including stitches. It was a day enjoyed by hundreds of Catholic parents and teens. It was a pleasure to meet with old friends and new.

Customers enjoyed special prices on almost all of our items!

The apron table was a favorite amongst attendees

Our new embroidered rosary cases were an Easter basket ideal

Catholic Embroidered Key Fobs - a style for everyone

Every year, we host a gift certificate giveaway game of "guess the number of stitches". This year's feature design was the Agnus Dei - Triumphant Lamb of God. Attendees placed guesses that ranged from 100 to 50,000 stitches. The winner with the closest guess was Amy B., who guessed 15,000 stitches. 

The exact number???

16,144 stitches
That's approximately 100 yards of thread!
Congratulations, Amy!

A big thank you to all who visited us at this year's conference. We look forward to seeing you next year!
