Summer is about to come to an end, the leaves will soon be falling, and yes, as every year, Christmas is coming! But for now, there is still nearly 4 months to sew, sew, sew for cherished gifts and cute Holiday clothing. Last month – August issue of BEAR IN MIND – we shared some trims and ribbons for your holiday projects. I am hoping you have some projects well under way!
Also, coming soon is the Birmingham Market. It is a one day show, Sunday, September 11. That is one week after Labor Day weekend. We will bring with us some of our sale merchandise, and as usual we will take orders for other items. Remember it is a CASH AND CARRY MARKET. We do NOT take credit cards, so come prepared accordingly!
Further to squash any rumors, we are still in business. We started the liquidation SALE because we had such a huge inventory. Of course the benefit to you is that we have always been ‘in stock’, and you get your orders in just a few days. Unfortunately, there are those folks who are vicious and malicious, and are spreading rumors that we are ‘gone’. That is simply not true! We are for sale, and will be around for a long time.
Now, to our current issue: Whenever I say ‘well’ as I formulate a thought with my husband, his reply is ‘That is a deep subject’. Well…. I am starting a two part series on color in embroidery.
THAT is a deep subject and one I cannot cover in one issue. When I first started doing embroidery and other needle arts there was Bates and DMC embroidery floss, and Appleton wool. OK, I have just dated myself! We have come a long way from those days with so many more options of fibers, thread sizes, and shades of colors. I sincerely hope this series opens some new doors for your creativity. Read on as we get started.
Hoping to see you in Birmingham, and as always,
