Spring is in the Air --- or is it allergies!
If you are like me you can't wait for the flowers to bloom and add lots of colour to your world ... Here are some patterns if you can't wait!
della Q - Everyday Collection: Train Case
della Q recently reimagined the original Maker's Train Case, and I could not be more excited to try them out!
This is how they describe them:
Made for our wanderlust makers, we’re excited to share our reimagined Train Case. When the case is closed, you can knit or crochet from either side through a metal opening. When it’s open, you can easily read your pattern on the lid as it can be held in place with included magnets. The removable handles can be snapped in multiple directions to more securely store your case or to grab it easily on the go.
12"w x 6"h x 5"d
Inner tray: 11"w x 5.75"h x 1"d
New to Embroidery Marketplace
I am always adding new items to my website as customers talk to me and give me feedback on the products they love and use. The EZ Frame NO Basting scroll frame is my newest "NEW ITEM"!
If you are looking for a versitile product that can grow with your crafting then this is perfect. Start with the Starter Set to get a selection of scroll rods, extender bars and knobs. Then over the years as you start new projects you can purchase addtional scroll rods to fit your fabric as your projects get bigger and bigger!!
Update to Kreinik Metallic Threads
During the Covid19 pandemic both supplies of the thread and the spools themselves had supply disruptions. As of 2022, all the Kreinik threads are now being sold only on the wider spools. This means that Kreinik thread will need to ship as a parcel with Canada Post. For all Provinces east of Manitoba the most economical option is the Canada Post Flat Rate box.
I have updated my automatic shipping but please understand if there is some 'glitches' while I get this new shipping adjusted. If you place an order and the shipping is more that $25.00 please let me know as most items will ship for less than this and it might be an error!
Thank you for understanding
Always in Stock
There are some items that everyone needs to be in stock when you want it ... for me DMC floss is one of those items. It always frustrates me when you go into a store (who will remain nameless) and they are out of stock on most of the thread. You are all excited to start a new pattern and you are pulled down to Earth, your bubble bursts, your dreams are shattered .... well a little over the top but you all know the feeling.
I am going to create a core group of items that will always be in stock (barring unforeseen disasters ... like the zombie apocalypse or a ship stuck in the Suez Canal), I will try to have 2 skeins of each colour in stock.
Included in my "Always in Stock" are ....
DMC Perle Cotton #5 (other sizes by special order)
Weeks Dye Works Stranded Cotton
Appleton Crewel 2 ply wool (skeins only)
Classic Colorworks Cotton floss
Mill Hill Seed Beads
Chameleon Stranded Cotton
* Price increase for DMC will be effective August 1st - $1.25 per skein for solid colours
Special Order Hand Dyed Fabrics
Picture This Plus and Weeks Dye Works fabrics are a beautiful selection of hand dyed fabrics.
Due to Covid19 and supply issues there are delays in the dyeing process. As a labour intensive process, hand dyed fabrics can take upwards of 20 weeks (5+ months) to arrive ... but well worth the wait!!!
Below is a selected collection of Hand Dyed Fabrics that are in stock, not all sizes are available. Email with any questions! The entire collection of in stock hand dyed fabrics are under the "Fabric" drop down menu at the top of this page.
Many more colours are on order too!
