Hi Stitchers –
Market is just two weeks away and we’re starting to get lots of pre-information! I’ve added a Gallery for “Market News” to the website and will be adding photos as I can.
Unfortunately, some of the news is of price increases. I’m writing of the price increases in my Tuesday Tidbits this week to give you the opportunity to purchase at the “old” price before prices increase on June 1st.
Effective June 1st, Crescent Colours will be raising their prices on Belle Soie (overdyed silk) from $5.50 to $6.50. The Threadpacks from Little House Needleworks, Country Cottages, and Praiseworthy Stitches (Birds, Cottages, Fruits and Scriptures) will go from $12.00 to $14.00. The Seasonal Silk Sampler packs will go from $15.50 to $16.50. You may order all of these items at the old price until end of business on Thursday, May 29th. If we have it in stock, you may get it at the old price until we run out – don’t take a chance though – order now! You can see all the Little House threadpacks on their site at http://www.littlehouseneedleworks.com/threadpacks.html

Also effective June 1st, Caron Collection will be raising their thread prices. Watercolours (one of my favorite all time threads!) & Wildflowers are going from $2.95 to $3.35/skein. Waterlilies will remain at $5.95. Impressions will go from $3.95 to $4.50. Again, you may order at the old prices until end of business on Thursday, May 29th.
The good news about threads is that there will be new colors introduced at market! I personally can’t wait to see the 12 new Watercolours because I love using it in my designs. In fact, Framer Liz is stitching a new design for me using 10 different Watercolours – just a little tease for some of you who love Watercolours as much as me!
Just Nan will be releasing her Gilded Dragonfly Scissor Purse Limited Edition kit. Today was the first day to post a photo and it’s the first in the Gallery! This little purse replaces her original Dragonfly Scissor Purse. Beads, pearls, and Swarovski crystals embellish the design, along with the embossed dragonfly. The back of the purse has a 3-dimensional pink rose made from overdyed wool and silk braid. I know it will sell out quickly so please let me know ASAP if you want to be placed on the reserve list. $40.00/kit
New from Little House Needleworks:
LITTLE WOMEN THREAD PACKS
This "little" series is sure to provide you with endless possibilities for finishing. Beginning with "Quilting", each design will showcase a little woman spending time with something she loves. Stitch the pieces for yourself or give as a gift!
I’m excited to share with you that Nordic Needle will be distributing my needlepoint designs to other needlework shops. I sent them in for consideration a few weeks ago and last week got a call that they wanted to order ALL of them! Personally, it’s very exciting for me and great validation that I should keep designing! I’m really having a ball with it and was tickled on Friday when a customer asked me to autograph the first “Guacamole” pattern sold!
Get your threads and threadpacks ordered this week at the old price!
I’ll "talk" to you Friday!
