March 2018 Newsletter
You will receive this just before Easter Sunday and if you are still sewing Easter clothes it will be ‘not so funny an April Fool’s Joke’. So I do hope you are finished and can enjoy the weekend, spring weather, lovely flowers and Easter bunny chocolates!
There are a couple of very interesting articles in this issue with more ideas and uses for laces. Also, I hope you find the Swiss stamp article as amazing as I. I wish we could do more in the USA to promote embroidery and sewing.
It is worth searching your local town for the many guilds relating to sewing that may be available to you. There is the Embroiderers’ Guild of America, numerous needlepoint guilds, Sampler guilds, and of course the Smocking Arts Guild of America. It is as easy as googling smocking or sewing or needlework guilds to find one. Many offer memberships for out-of-town or out-of-state folks. They all offer amazing newsletters, classes and even correspondence courses. This is one time that ‘you do not need to be present to win’.
As Easter 2018 comes to a close we here at Bear Threads are looking toward the fall and of course spring of 2019. In the coming months you will find that many items of which we were out of stock are in production. But MOST IMPORTANTLY, we will be having some NEW EMBROIDERIES coming soon and how lovely they will be. These are really old fashioned classics that I have been planning for some time. I am as excited as anyone! You all know my designs are classics and my quality is the very best. These will not disappoint you. For now, don’t forget our new lace set, and the fact we have added Aqualine Blue to the Bearissima color range. I guess you might say we are ‘on a roll’.
For now that is all and I hope you enjoy the issue.
Happy Easter and Happy Stitching –
