Just want to chime in here and let you all know how much I enjoy what I do. Today I'm sitting in my cozy house with 25 degrees and snow outside. I'm connecting with the whole world via The Wooly Thread. I'm sending shipments to Lativa, Israel, France and the United Arab Emirates. Earlier this month, shipments went to Jordan, South Africa and Japan along with the more usual international destinations of Canada and western Europe. I even had an order from Yemen earlier this year. We have suppliers in Lithuania, Finland, Australia, UK, Canada, and even South Africa. I enjoy geography and used to enjoy international travel, so this is fun for me. Thanks for being a part of my business - I would not be here were it not for you.

I've had several people call and ask where they can get Susan O'Connor's new book "Monograms". I asked the publisher and here is that info: ......it is available from Stitchology https://www.stitchology.com.au/ . I did see a listing on Amazon.com for them, too.

Every year about this time, I try to find some 'goodie' for all of us. In years past, it has most often been chocolate of some sort, but this year I came upon something I'm really excited about - Copper Pot Caramels! What I especially like is that this company was started about 5 years ago by two young women who make these caramels themselves and... they do it right here in my town. I'm so excited to support local woman-owned businesses .Here's a link to their site and a short video that tells their story. http://copperpotcaramels.com/

After a verrrrry long hiatus.....several of the A-Z books are back! Just today we got our shipment of these 6 A-Z books: Embroidery Stitches 2, Goldwork, Heirloom Sewing, Thread Painting, Ribbon Embroidery, and Smocking. They join the other A-Z titles we already had in stock.

What a busy month for new products! Both Inspirations and Ottobre magazines will release new issues this month. The new Curve Runner rulers have been mailed and will be here this coming week. Then - just today- the new kits we ordered from Australia's Anna Scott arrived. I just finished posting them to our website, so if you are interested, check them out on our website. We have now these 3 designs in stock and ready to ship.
"Inspirations" magazine issue 87 will be sent out in about two weeks. In the meantime, I'll be posting pictures of some of the projects you'll find in this newest issue. The first one is the cover - this project is called "Briar Rose" - it is a 3-D project.
