These gnomes by Stacy West of Buttermilk Basin are so darn cute, your customers won’t be able to resist giving wool a try.
This is just a sampling of her ornaments. There are dozens to choose from – berries to Halloween. Why not kit some up for a make it/take it and invite your customers to come in and stitch for awhile. Hot chocolate and a visit with friends at your shop may be the highlight of the season!
Sew Cherished has added more banner designs to their line. The Summer garland will be arriving early next month
Each pattern is 4-1/2″ in diameter and the pattern includes 7 different designs. The perfect choice for portable handwork!
Stitch by Stitch is perfect for a sewing room.
‘Tis The Season
Snowflake Squad. I blew this one up as far as I could so you can see the detail and personality in her patterns.
These patterns are all designed to work with the Circle Garland by Kraft Klub.
The garland include seven 5 inch round chalkboard circles and is 67 1/2″ long. Simply make quilt blocks or wool work of your choice and affix them with magnets. The circles have a chalkboard finish you can write on with chalk, too.
Where the Sun Shines is due in early next month. The rest are in stock now. What a great way to use up wool scraps! Wouldn’t they make great individual ornaments or gift tags as well?
Gift-giving has never been easier! These delightful ornament bags, designed by Rachel’s of Greenfield, are just the right size for gift cards or other treasures of your choice. Each envelope-style ornament bag has a different decoration on the front and fastens on the back with an old-fashioned figure-eight closure. The kit includes woolfelt®, embroidery floss, and gold string plus precise patterns, and complete instructions to make 6 gift bags.
There are lots of kits to choose from.
These kits are a great way to keep those mask makers engaged. This is my plan:
This year I made GALLONS of Chex mix, filled quart jars, and put them in gift bags. My children and grandchildren had a ball leaving these gifts on the doorsteps of friends and on the desks of their favorite teachers. Hopefully, we will be able to celebrate the holidays this year up close and personal, but we want to continue the tradition. I drew squares the size of each woolfelt piece onto freezer paper. Then, I traced the templates for that color within the square. Since my family and friends are making multitudes of these, we can run as many copies of the template sheets as we have kits – and only have to trace them once. Now, the instructions say to trace the templates right onto the wool felt, but ironing the freezer paper onto the woolfelt with a warm iron was much faster. Why not provide a template sheet to your customers as that “value-added” bonus with the purchase of each kit?
This Gypsy Quilter Appliqué Freezer Paper is over-sized and worked well!
And, what great handwork while sitting in front of a fire…..
The pattern name is even adorable! Sew Cherished created the Snowflake Squad to help you with your winter decorating. Using the interchangeable banner and attaching the appliques with magnets – these little banners change out really quickly for a big impact. Each wool applique measures approximately 5″ in diameter.
This is the winter version of the Gouly Gang pattern I shared a few weeks ago. Made of hand-dyed wool, each pumpkin head is approximately 4″ x 4″. Designed to fit in the banner with magnets, they could easily be made into separate ornaments as well.
Both patterns are designed to work with this 67.5″ garland from Kraft Klub. Simply affix the wool work with magnets. The circles have a chalkboard finish you can write on them with chalk, too.
Here are the magnets designed to work with everything above! They are1″ inch enamel magnets that come in a 12 pack.
Don’t you love having a handwork project this time of year? Let’s sit in front of the fire and stitch away!
I love these wool designs by Dawn Shuck. The height is an added bonus since you can still display pictures, etc. beneath them. And the magnets make it easy to change out the designs.
These are great projects for those newbies that came from knitting or cross-stitch. These newest additions to the line are expected at the beginning of October. And, don’t forget to order your stand! From Kraft Klub, Black Round Stand# KK8864-B.
I LOVE this new round the year series by Sew Cherished! All of her designs have that awe factor that you just can’t resist! These 10″ wool circles are the perfect handwork project and would be a great wool Round of the Month!
We already have pics on the website for the first three. The next three are entered – but we don’t have the pics yet! Don’t you love a surprise – especially when they are this cute???
I love the stand because it is 22″ high so it adds height to any display. Smaller things can be showcased around the base to create a charming vignette! The designer used sew-in magnets to attach the wool design!
The patterns and stand are all due to arrive later this month.
Many of you have had to close your stores during the quarantine and are looking for ways to connect with your customers. Kitting these Gathered Hearts patterns and mailing them as a block of the month might be just what you need!
Let’s face it! Most of your customers are home and would love some handwork while binge watching something on T.V. Receiving a kit in the mail will bring a smile – and much needed sales to your shop! New patterns and images are being added so you can see ALL of the patterns in the Gathered Hearts series. Some are in stock, some are due to arrive in April. Check our website for availability.
