Embroidery patterns are here. Printed with heat-transferable ink for your ease and convenience, our FOUR new embroidery patterns make stitching beautiful needlework fun and relaxing—perfect for your holiday break.
EVERY PATTERN INCLUDES
• 11" X 17" pattern sheet with heat-transferable ink.
Each design can be heat transferred multiple times.
• Instructions for a variety of transfer methods including
• Illustrated guide to basic hand-embroidery stitches.
These first four patterns feature birds, flowers, paisleys, butterflies, repeating borders, frame designs and more. Stitch a quilt label to match your next Lottie Da quilt or trim out your next apron with a charming cherry border. There are countless ways to incorporate this rewarding hobby into your creative repertoire.
We did it! The new patterns are completed in time for Christmas. Now we can go a-wassailing, then come back home to sit and stitch while snuggled up with our troop of bug-a-boos. I love holiday break—only a few more days till my kids are home for a couple of weeks.
Everything comes back from the printer today and we'll work into the night to begin shipping tomorrow so you can have your hands on these great new patterns right away—and have a fabulous holiday break making beautiful projects for yourself and your loved ones!
Ask for them all at your local, independent fabric store. It always helps to make requests. Not every shop will know these are available. In fact, if you want to bring in a pattern catalog to show them, email me and we'll send you one to drop off at your local shop.
Quilters will be especially excited to hear about the Fresh Flowers quilt labels and frames pattern. Several of the designs coordinate with fabrics I've designed, such as Sprig, and Dauphine. With these frame designs, you can match your quilt label to the quilt itself. I've never seen this before—so I'm calling it revolutionary.
The Blooming Borders pattern includes a variety of designs in repeat. In other words, transfer a border multiple times to the length that suits your project. One of these repeating borders (the bird design shown at the top of this post) coordinates with the Mockingbird print from my Garden District collection—which will be out next year on quilting cotton (wink, wink).
In short, embroidery is seriously fun and relaxing. And I hope to make it even more so by providing beautiful designs, all ready for your use. As I've mentioned before, it's "like coloring in slow motion." But, with much more substantial and long-reaching results.
For me, this is like birthing another baby—an art baby. I've worked long and hard on every aspect of this new pattern collection to get every nuance and need met with style. I couldn't be more excited to send these out to your ready hands and see the beautiful things you create.
You guys are amazing. Thank you, as always, for your cheerful support.
A BIG Happy Holidays to you!
