If you're taking my Mystery class through Shining Needle, it's supposed to start Sunday, February 1st. HOWEVER, I just posted the fist lesson. Go check your email and thread your needles!! Until later, Kathy
I'm so pleased to show you photos of some of my students' work! They've had such fun stitching Serenity and several have completed it. It's such fun to see the different colorways come to life! First up is Pam B's - it's called "Flowers of Italy". She was clever and added her initials to the piece - can you find them?!
Next is Highland Garden - it was one of the most popular colorways!
And here's Arnhem Heath, the ever popular purple and green!
I'll be teaching this project at Needle in a Haystack in Alameda, CA next month - if you're wanting some Serenity, come join us. You can see all the info here.
one of the craziest months as the Nashville wholesale market is the first
weekend in March. For the first time ever, I had completed stitching all of my
designs by the end of December and managed to eke out a new Holiday Delights in
January! I felt great being ahead of the game but after finishing the stitching, there's the instruction writing,
printing, stuffing thousands of patterns into plastic bags (I do have help,
thank goodness!), communicating with my shops and distributor, packing the
models and patterns to travel to market, and more boring but oh so necessary
administrative details. Did I say
I love this time off year?! I really do as I look forward to market like a
fabulous dessert - I get to see all my shopowner friends and other designers.
We all generally work our fingers to the bone while having a fabulous time with
some belly laughs and the promise of delightful sales. At this
point, you're thinking, enough, show us the new designs - here they are! Yo…
I hope you all had a wonderful Holiday. I finished a big project just before midnight and look forward to showing you soon. In the meantime, Tis the season for a sale!
