New patterns and kits . . . . .

New on the website and available at our next show in Asheville are these two beauties by Crane Design in both patterns and kits.



Fall Gathering

Aren't they adorable!?  I just love them.  Jan used Shakerwood Woolens hand-dyed wools to design these wonderful patterns and the same wools are offered in the kits.

You can access the new kits and patterns by clicking on the pictures above or going to the 'Kits' page of the website or the 'Crane Design' page of the website.

Well, we finally did it .....

We have created a bigger, better website!  It's a little different from the old one ..... a little sleeker ..... much more functional.  

We are able to take credit cards as well as Paypal.  You can purchase gift certificates in any amount and redeem them as well (not that you would buy yourself a gift certificate but you never know!)

You can pick an over-dyed wool color, pick a size and pick a texture to overdye all right in one spot. The patterns and several of the kits are on there.  All the Valdani Perle Cotton and Aurifil Wool threads that I carry are on there.

To celebrate this event, we are offering FREE SHIPPING during the month of September to anywhere in the lower 48! That's right ..... FREE! 

So go ahead and take a look over there.  There is plenty more to add and more tweaking to do but all of that will come in time!

It's hot .... Hot ..... HOT .....

I headed out to work at 5:30 this morning.

It's going to be another scorcher here in the Carolinas ...... a high of 98° today.  The next 10 days is forecast for 95° and above.  I hope I can get some wool dyeing done in the wee hours of the morning for the next few days.  

I really don't like to sweat!

Lookie at what's new ...... !

This is my first attempt at hand-dyeing velvet.

The colors are richer than showing in the photo.  But it was fun to do.  A little more practice and a little tweaking ...... I think these will be added to the booth and the website sometime this summer.

Stay tuned!
