Summer has arrived and many of you are already on vacation. In fact, I am leaving for the beach next week and so looking forward to hearing the waves crashing, sipping some cool beverages and stitching.
This issue I am focusing on Samplers and their importance to our embroidery history. Perhaps you have never stitched a ‘sampler’ as such, but I bet many of you have taken a ‘notebook’ class where you learned many new stitches. These samples were then put in a notebook for future reference. Same idea, different format! I hope you enjoy reading about the many different types and purposes of samplers
Our liquidation sale continues as we continue to talk to potential new captains for our ‘good ship lollipop’. One often asked question the past few weeks is how our supply of entredeux is holding. Well for now we still have white, ivory and ecru both on the reels and cards. White Bearissima and Bearissima II are fine as well. I am willing to sell various ‘collections’ of the Bear, so if there is an area that perks your interest, give me a call.
Take some time to study your supplies and future needs, and talk to your friends about the importance of Bear Threads continuing to be THE major player in the Heirloom Sewing Industry!
Happy Stitching –
