Trish Burr's New "Moonlit Owl" kit

These adorable owl kits from Trish Burr are on their way from South Africa! The "Moonlight Owl" kit includes all the threads plus Irish cambric linen, needles and booklet. Price will be $65. They won't be on my website until they arrive, but you can reserve one via email if you'd like. Since they've been so popular, I couldn't get as many as I wanted, so my stock will be limited.

News Flash!

News Flash! In all the years (20+) that I've been working with Appleton, I've never known them to introduce any new colors, but now they have. Colors 887 and 888 (on the far right) have been added to the 'pastel shades' group. Here's a look at the new line up - note that the colors are not exactly as they appear on your screen - they are much prettier. I only have a single skein of each, but have ordered a quantity and hope to have them by the time the next newsletter comes out. The first picture shows the entire line up in crewel. The second one shows just the two new colors in tapestry weight.

Ottobre Design in Spanish!

As you are enjoying your Memorial Day and thinking back about those who served, take a look ahead at the adorable outfits we can look forward to in the next Ottobre issue - children's fall issue #4/2014. I am so excited about this next issue of Ottobre Design - not only because of the cute designs, but for the first time it will be published in SPANISH !! I've ordered some Spanish editions, so let me know if you are interested. Here are some new pictures and information about the next issue coming out the first week of July. Practical outerwear clothes and comfortable under layers for outdoor activities and playgrounds: pants, coveralls, beanies, fleece jackets and hoodies. An aviator hat and jacket for a little pilot. The season's most wanted outdoor clothes which also look great! Cute and comfy organic-cotton baby clothes: a bodysuit, a jersey hoodie, denim-look jersey pants, leggings and a pinafore dress. A lightweight, super-soft organic-cotton coverall for cooler days and evenings. Casual yet neat autumn clothing for preschoolers and schoolchildren. Pants, long-sleeve tees, tunics, skirts and dresses for girls. Cord pants, sweatpants, hoodies, tees and a biker jacket for boys. The cover picture will be revealed in our June 1st newsletter.
