Some recent acquisitions and some that are pending….

Recently, I’ve sold many of the vintage quilt kits I have in my inventory; and at the moment I’m very busy sourcing and acquiring new items to re-build inventory.

Thank you to all the patrons who have enquired about specific kits. My advice at the moment is that if I get back to you that I have a specific item, move quickly. This morning I sold another  vintage Tobin/Progress applique Tree of Life kit  that had just arrived at my house, and wasn’t even posted yet! A scarce item, but I will try to replace it. I have another return customer who has asked me to source a kit that isn’t in my inventory at the moment – so that is another way to avoid disappointment.

I thought I would show you several vintage cross stitch kits, the first three I have just acquired and are in transit. The last one I’m in negotiations about at the moment, but have not yet formally acquired. I am not quoting price as I like to receive the item and be sure it is everything I expected before pricing it.

  

Above: Paragon #00169  Iris,  double size, no thread kit – stunning

Above is Bucilla’s # 3218  Acorn Harvest, a double measuring 81×108; no threads

Above: Bucilla #2323  Briar Rose size 90×103; no threads but I have an alternative suggested thread numbers for those who would prefer a more subtle colouration – lovely tones of rose, not in your face at all.

The quilts below I hope to confirm purchase on soon.

 Above: Paragon – sorry I don’t have a number for this one yet – it is a king 108×103 – beautiful! Acquisition confirmed on Feb 15/11

Contact me if any of these offerings interest you and I hope to have them in my hands soon to inspect and formally offer for sale.

Meanwhile, stay warm and comfy as winter starts to wind down.

    I am very interested in the Paragon Assisi Rose kit that you show above.

    I had purchased this kit in 1971 and completed the quilt in 1978. In 2006 it was stolen from my home in a burglary.

    I had intended to give the quilt to my daughter someday. I would be so excited to remake it and be able to do so.

  • Terry Metz:

    I just sent an email to you about the Paragon quilt kit, but I called it Assissi Rose. I had the wrong name – it is the Renaissance quilt. (Burgundy, Red and pink).

  • Earline Hopkins:

    I want to locate a Bucilla quilt kit No. 3218 in a King size. Do you have one? Would it be for sale?

  • Earline Hopkins:

    Bucilla quilt No. 3218 is called “Acorn Harvest”. I am looking for a king size.

  • janet:

    Hi Earline: I have yet to see this kit in king size, which is 108widex103long. I have it in stock in 90×103 and it comes complete with the vintage floss kit to complete it. The price is $290USD for the quilt kit and floss and postage which includes tracking and insurance will be about $25USD to anywhere in North America. If you wish to purchase – contact me: janet@novascotiaquilts.com
