New & Notable Arrivals
It’s not May 1st yet, but it is time to reveal Hands Across the Sea Sampler’s 2019 Queen of the May!! Miss Lucy Navier 1818 is stunning! She does have some specialty stitches but Nicola has included many pages of stitch diagrams and close-ups of motifs to help you get each stitch just right. This is just a really beautiful sampler; very worthy of being crowned 2019 Queen of the May! We’ve kitted it for you with two options, both of which include a gift of an exclusive to Sassy Jacks needle nanny featuring the gorgeous tree from Lucy’s sampler. You can choose from 37ct. Corn Tassel from Legacy Linen with AVAS Soie d’Alger silks or 53ct. Sycamore Seed Pod from Legacy Linen with AVAS 100/3 silks (thinner for the higher count linen). The sweet little needle nanny is only available with the fabric/fiber kits and will not be sold separately. I hope you purchase a copy of this gorgeous new booklet from Hands Across the Sea Samplers and I really hope you stitch this beautiful sampler. You can click on the photo for all things Lucy 🙂
We are super excited to offer you the full line of Sulky Perle #12 in both solid and blended/variegate d colors. Perle #12 is a great substitute for two ply of floss and has a beautiful sheen. Several designers are offering conversions for it with their new charts, including Hands on Design and Summer House Stitche Workes. Sassafras Samplers will be offering some fabulous Halloween original designs this summer with this gorgeous perle! You can buy it individually by the spool or in the set by first and second 80 colors. We’ll soon offer smaller selections as well. I’m so excited about these that we included one in our Jack’s Stash for March! I hope you enjoy.
Elizabeth Weston is only one of the four gorgeous new reproduction samplers released at the Nashville Needlework Market in March. She’s simply gorgeous. We’ve offered her kitted with 37ct. Wild Honey Linen from Legacy Linens and the accompanying Soie d’Alger from Au ver a Soie. This is such a beautiful sampler. Take a look at the other new ladies in waiting from Hands Across the Sea Samplers by clicking on the photo. Let us know if we can help you kit her up. We also have some very beautiful higher count linen from Legacy Linen as well.
I had a fabulous encounter at Nashville with a really wonderful new to Nashville designer, Stephanie Webb of Lindy Stitches. This beautiful design is only one of the gorgeous beauties from Lindy Stitches. You can check them out by clicking on the picture of my favorite, Birds to the Boughs.
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!!
