In our first newsletter, we gave away a small sampler that I found locally here in an antique shop. It reads: “Tho Oceans Wide Between Us Roar, Tho Distant Be Our Lot, Tho Should I Never See Thee More, Dear Friend Forget Me Not.” This was the perfect sentiment for the goal of our shop, to reach our friends near and wide, and offer them a place to belong. You can still find this in our first newsletter, but we wanted to put it here for your as well. During this very challenging times, we value our friends and our family most of all. Please enjoy stitching this sweet sampler for yourself or a friend.

Aussie Benefit Stitch
All of us at Sassy Jacks Stitchery have felt the losses and the horror of the fires in Australia so deeply. We wanted to do something small to help. We’ve created this free design for all of you to stitch, with the hope that you spend a bit of time in contemplation, prayer, and positive thoughts for our friends in Australia. For every post of a new finish of this design on our Sassy Jacks FB group, our Sassy Jacks Instagram, or sent to our email through Feb 29th, Sassy Jacks Stitchery will make a financial donation to a charity in Australia helping with the recovery from these horrible fires. We love our Aussie friends and we are overwhelmed with the weight of their loss and the struggles yet to come. We love you and your amazing country and your incredible spirit. We pray for rain and relief from these relentless fires. ❤🐨❤🐿❤🦘❤

New & Notable Arrivals
Sassafras Samplers is so excited to announce the release of our latest Reproduction Sampler, Mary Ann Frane 1796. Mary Ann is just a gorgeous sampler with beautiful colors and motifs. She’s just stunning. We’re kitting her on 37ct. Corn Tassel with Au ver a Soie silks, but also have options available in NPI silk and DMC and other counts and colors of linen. I plan to stitch a personal reproduction for my loft on Confederate Gray. I am loving Confederate Gray from Weeks Dye Works these days.
another fabulous new reproduction sampler, released in time to gather all the supplies for a wonderful Christmas gift. Mary is a Quaker sampler and is just gorgeous. Our friend Bhooma Aravamudan stitched the model for this one and it’s truly spectacular, as Bhooma’s stitching always is. We’ve kitted this sampler with several options of counts in Straw linen from Weeks Dye Works-Zweigart. We have full kits of both Soie d’Alger and 100/3 available for you. Just click on the sampler for all things Mary.
We’re super excited to bring you the first in a series of four new original designs from our own design house, Sassafras Samplers. This in Fenny Snake, design No. 1 in the Spooky Shakespeare series from Sassafras Samplers. The series takes the famous “Boil and Bubble, Toil and Trouble” scene from Macbeth and breaks it into four fun and spooky designs. As an ode to the “Scottish” setting of Macbeth, we’ve surrounded each of the four designs in a border from one of our antique Scottish Samplers. We’ve also included a little bonus chart for those who collect all four designs! Each of the four designs has a band that when put together gives you a small original design “sampler”, also drawing from Macbeth. This bonus chart also includes the borders from our Scottish Samplers. I hope you’ll give this a try and enjoy the stitch! We’ve kitted on Tin Roof from Weeks Dye Works and have this linen available in 32ct. through 40ct. Click on Fenny Snake for all things Spooky Shakespeare!
Do you listen to FiberTalk? It’s a fabulous podcast created by Gary Parr. We love Gary, and Vonna Pfeiffer, The Twisted Stitcher, does a regular guest spot with Gary. Gary and Vonna are sponsoring a Stitch Along (SAL) this coming Lent (2020) featuring Agnus Dei from Modern Folk Embroidery. They’ll start the stitch on Fat Tuesday and work hard to complete it by Easter. Join us! We have the chart in stock in printed form and we’re happy to kit you up with your choice of linen and fiber. We’re recommending a 30ct Parisian Gray from Legacy Linen and a bright white Sulky petite thread (spool… single strand… stitching joy!). If you’re looking for a higher count or silks, we can make that happen for you too. Just give us a call. By the way… Agnus Dei is Latin for Lamb of God. We feature a beautiful version of the Lamb of God motif on our Saxon Sampler in our 2019 newsletter sampler giveaway. I hope I see you on this stitching trail come Fat Tuesday!
What a beauty, right?? This was one of the wonderful releases from the new reproduction design label, Fox and Rabbit. This was their first Nashville as a design company, having visited many times as the shop owners for Linen and Threads. The brought us this wonderful reproduction from a museum held piece, with permission, and many other truly stunning designs. You definitely want to take a look at their offerings. This one is on my list of Need to Stitch!! Congrats Brendon and Karen on a truly fabulous debut!! xx
I just love the new designs from Plum Street Samplers. The super cute Fox Few and this wonderful next edition of the Saltboxes are my favorites. You can see the other new releases by clicking on the saltbox pic 🙂
Fan Favorite for a lot of folks was the new Hands On Design “You had me at Flamingo”. JABCO made a truly wonderful and unique Pin for this one! The flamingo has a little turn in his neck and looks as much like a real flamingo as a counting pin can!! I just fell in love with this one and it’s on my Stitch list for the summer. We have lots of the pins and the charts in stock. Cathy at HOD also released a wonderful new series called Scary Apothecary. I totally fell in love with that one too! And she used the new Perle #12s for her “Life Needs More Chocolate Bunnies”. So much to stitch… and only 50 years left!! Just kidding… I’m living forever with my needle and threads 🙂
Summer House Stitche Workes brought us some wonderful new stitches this Spring. This really great “Liberty & Justice For All”, along with “Sister Suffragette” really resonated with me, and my heart was drawn to the beautiful Eliza Garside 1841 with all its happy flowers. And I really love the new Fragments Series. We’re stitching those all on one sampler piece this year, as well as smalls for a sweet dough bowl. Beth Seal really just brought us a great selection this market. And she introduced a line I’m really excited about called “Modern Organic”. I think lots of folks will love it. They are fun, modern, trendy stitches that can easily be worked on aida or linen, with floss or Perle #12. I’m really excited about these!! Thanks Beth for bringing those to us!!
