Welcome to 2018, and a new year of sewing adventures, fun and creativity. Easter sewing time is here and Bear Threads has new fabrics and laces for your spring creations.
First of all, we are so excited to be offering a newlaceset,thefirstinseveralyears.Manyof you ordered it at the Birmingham Market in September market. The design is fabulous for both boys and girls, as it is a simple ‘dot’ lace without a floral or frilly design. It is also the perfect pattern to mix with your other favorite lace patterns. While we had hoped to ship the marketordersinthefall,onlytheedgingswere delivered in October/November and the insertions were shipped in December. Alas, all have arrived and we have the entire set of edgingsandmatchinginsertionsnowinhouse in both White and Ecru. We will be shipping the first week of January.

Also in our lace shipments were many of the laces several of you had on back order, particularly in the ‘gooseneck’ design. Please call us to confirm your order and needs.
