Look Out Market - Here We Come!

Saturday, August 17, 2013


     Getting ready for market can be overwhelming at times. Lots of details to keep in line....and many patterns to proof. Luckily we have great people that help check everything twice! I dropped this sweet one off at the printer yesterday and they made big promises of having it ready for market. (They keep their promises better than me!)  

     Sisters is our newest book. I found two early 19th century samplers from England on E-bay . I called Barb, and we decided to purchase them after about 2 seconds of discussion. They were made by sisters with the last name of Shields.

     The samplers they’ve stitched use similar motifs, but clearly reflect the nature of each girl. The older of the two used more sedate colors than her younger sister, who used orange and black with wild abandon.

     The different tones and personalities of the samplers inspired the pieces in this booklet. You’ll find reproduction charts of the original samplers as well 2 other samplers made with Halloween in mind and one just right for Christmas. Barb and I had lots of fun with this one and hope you do too!

     The book will be sold at market first and then available to shop owners from their distributors. 




     Above is Away We Ride, a single pattern designed by Barb. I love all of the windows in the witch's house. She can see someone coming from miles away! If that isn't enough to scare a person away....the tree of poison apples is sure to do it.


     Midnight Ride was designed by Barb to fit into a 6" sewing box by Lone Elm Lane. Stephanie Elmer makes these boxes by hand and they are wonderful. And to make good things even better, Stephanie will be at market too. Her Shaker boxes will be available, and she has designed some wonderful pieces to stitch herself. Just wait until you see those!
     Since the design is easily removed from the lid, we have decided to so a seasonal series for this sized box. Barb has the Thanksgiving one already stitched....I just don't have it into pattern form and won't have it for market. But Midnight Ride will be there just in time for Halloween!

     We will also have 2 exclusive market kits. I will show pictures of those next week.

Hope your weekend is lovely. We have the best weather here! It feels like autumn.

Until later,

Alma

Yes, we are to finally be able to see each other just like strangers. Strangers meet initial minutes, endearing and love, love and separation.
