WOW!! Look what I just found! It’s on it’s way to me as I write, so I haven’t yet examined this treasure to find out if there is a date on it anywhere. It seems to have come packed in a box with a black and white picture on the cover. This type of packaging indicates a quite early kit.
There is a minor amount of foxing that in my experience is likely to come out with laundering using a mild oxygen based fabric wash once the quilt has been completed. If it doesn’t come out completely it will be much reduced and lightened.
This is a very special find….. I have not had one as good in over two years of active searching. The applique appears to be complete and done by an expert hand. The embroidery has yet to be done and is clearly stamped and the floss to do the work is there. It is unclear whether the binding is present, but it will be easy to match if it isn’t.
Contact me mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to put a hold on it.
PRICE: $350 USD + $20USD shipping = $370
Be sure to check back often as I post still more lovely vintage kits in lots of time for Christmas giving. Free shipping!!
Yesterday. I lit my woodstove for the first time this fall. This brought home to me the fact that summer is gone and Christmas is just around the corner. I got to thinking about what I might do to pass on the spirit of Christmas to my customers and came up with two, no – check that – three ideas to make your shopping with me a great experience.
We all like a deal, and free shipping in these days of fuel surcharges and escalating postal fees is certainly a good deal! Until December 31, 2010 I will be offering free shipping to any destination in North America, and will go 50/50 on shipping anywhere else.
But that’s not all: with each purchase I am offering a set of three of my sweet smelling handcrafted lavender sachets at no cost – yours to keep or to pass on as a gift to a friend or loved one.
And…… This year I’m offering gift cards for sale denominated from $50 USD and up. Each certificate will come with a lovely quilt art card suitable for framing by internationally renowned quilt artist Laurie Swim, whose works hang in major collections in the US and Canada. Check out her website at: http://www.laurieswim.com I’m sure you will love her work!
So check out my website and check back often – starting tomorrow I will be listing some very special vintage quilt kits which seldom are seen anymore.
