I received a message from Anita regarding the availibilty of a Paragon Cross Stitch quilt from 1954 that she had made then and wants to find another one to make for an upcoming family birth. She is asking for my help in trying to source this kit for her, but when I responded to her email address the message bounced back to me because her inbox is full. Oh dear!
I’m hoping she may check back to this blog and see my response, which I will quote here:
“Good Morning Anita: I have seen that quilt kit but have never been able to acquire it for my inventory, although I am still looking. As far as I know, Paragon are now out of business and there are no obvious archives on the web that I can find. I have been trying without any luck to source price lists and advertising material from their active period – no success there either.
I do have in stock a Bucilla Youth Bed size 54×72 Jack and Jill, and a Progress/Tobin Crib sized of a slumbering child. Please check my post of August 11, 2009 for details.”
If you are reading this, Anita, please get back to me if you feel I can be of further help.
