Inspirations #65 and more

We just got word that the new Inspirations #65 is on its way and due here by the end of the week. Along with this shipment is coming the new A-Z of Heirloom book (see blog post from November) AND a very few copies of More Beautiful Embroidered Blankets. Most of the books are already spoken for, but we will have a few extras.

Country Bumpkin describes the book: "This colourful and vibrant collection of embroidered blankets brings you eight all-new and original projects, featuring adorable blankets with teddies and baby elephants, a magnificent beaded blackberry wreath and a resplendent bouquet of pastel blossoms.
And as a special treat, the all-time-favourite ‘Fruits of the Hedgerow’, originally published in Inspirations issue 8, reappears as a bonus pattern in this stunning new edition to Inspirations Books that is not to be missed!"
Price: $45.

Dinner Party

Ruby Shoots

Star Bursts

Honey Drops

We just got our shipment of brand new crewel kits. This line of kits is not the traditional crewel, and definitely not your grandmother's crewel, but 'The New Crewel', by Katherine Shaughnessy.
Check out these designs. Each kit contains everything you need to complete the 3" x 3" project:

pre-printed linen fabric
Appleton crewel wool thread
complete instructions
and even a blank greeting card with envelope

These are quick and easy projects to complete - even for the novice.

Here's what we have. They should be on our website in the next few days. In the meantime, if you want one, just let us know. Price $19.95 each or $14.95 each if you buy 2 or more.

Cyber Expo

Just a heads up that next month we'll be having our own Cyber Expo at the same time as the Sewing and Stitchery Expo in Puyallup, Washington - February 25th - 28th. Not everyone can attend this huge event in Puyallup, so we've decided to make our 'booth' available to everyone online.
We'll have some really great deals and discounts - more than we've ever offered before.
More details will be coming right here in early February. Stay tuned............
