New Embroidery by Kathy Schmitz

Kathy Schmitz has added several samplers to her series. The patterns include the hand embroidery design and stitch directions to complete a 8″ x 10″ finished piece. The patterns include 10 different embroidery stitches – perfect for an embroidery class! The 12 weight Valdani threads used are mostly variegated which adds that depth of color that we all love. And isn’t it nice not to have to change colors?

And who could resist redwork? 14 ornaments with complete finishing

Both of these patterns use Valdani Turkey Red:

The Valdani 12 weight is in stock. The patterns are due to arrive in June, perfect take-along summer projects!

New Block of the Month from Bonnie Sullivan

This new BOM from Bonnie Sullivan of All Through the Night will be shipping around the first of the year. Bonnie appliqued wool on her high quality flannel for a vintage, dramatic look. With 9 blocks in the series, you will definitely be able to finish it in a year! The blocks are 16″ square so the embroidery and appliques have room to shine.

It is gorgeous on a light background as well.

This the background that Bonnie used. It’s Espresso Windowpane Woolies Flannel from Maywood Studio. Yes it is a subtle plaid….

Valdani offers an assortment of her favorite Pearl Cottons so you will be ready to stitch.

Having handwork is such a joy! We know this is going to be popular so place your orders now!
