To promote your stitching this summer, I’ve cut my pattern prices for a limited time. Now is the time to stock up on all those patterns you have been thinking about making. Check out the website under patterns for all the different patterns available.
Wild Mountain Vine is my latest pattern. It is so much better in person, as my students in my recent New Hampshire workshop will tell you. This quilt is a great one to use up scraps or make in Christmas colors. The hand embroidery sets it off nicely. I did use the “Carpenter’s Star” set of stamps to make this beauty, or you can use the templates included in the pattern.
But, don’t stop there…
Now, for a limited time until my stock runs out, I’m running a sale on the Feathered Star set of stamps. This set used with the Carpenter’s Star for the center comes out PERFECTLY every time. I even used the “sequential” method of piecing the points to speed up the piecing. (Instructions are shown in the pattern accompanying the stamps.) This set will be going away when my inventory is gone. I’m sad to discontinue it, but I have to make room for the new stamps I’m working on.
Now for the sad news… I’ve had to raise my prices on SOME of my stamp sets. I have absorbed the wood cost price raises for the last 6 years and my stamp guy has absorbed the cost twice. I really didn’t want to raise the prices, as you can imagine. Luckily, the price has only gone up $1 – $3 depending on the size and the amount of wood used in the stamp. I’m hoping this will be the only increase for a while. My stamps are mounted on hard wood, so they are sturdy and meant to last a long time.
Next week I answer the important question everyone has been waiting for… Why did the chicken cross the road?
