AND NOW TO MY BIG NEWS!!!
This stay at home quilting lady is going to turn into a snowbird – and I will be spending the wintert, starting later in November in the lovely hills and mountains of Panama, above the Pacific coastal plain. Here it is rarely over 80 degrees and it is a paradise for birdwatchers and nature lovers in general.
SO – I need to tell you that my online business will be on hiatus for the six months starting with November 15th!
What this means to you:
1) I will accept no new orders for my vintage quilt kits after the second week in November, and ALL payments must be received by the 15th November as that is the final shipping day
2) I will continue to answer emails with questions and will put holds on your wanted items, but no payment or delivery until the third week in May please.
4) ANNOUNCEMENT!!! Starting right now – if you buy more than one item from me, shipping will be free and in addition I will offer 10% off all merchandise purchased.
REMEMBRE: YOU WON”T BE ABLE TO PURCHASE ANY OF MY GREAT VINTAGE KITS FOR THE ENTIRE WINTER< SO STOCK UP NOW AT THESE GREAT PRICES>
ABOVE is a waterfall on a river near where I have rented a small house – a birdlover’s paradise and great for outdoor enthusiasts in general.
I’m hoping to start a few workshops on handquilting, handpiecing and needleturn applique using small group instruction wih a maximum of 6 people per group.
Below are two pictures of a selection of cushion sized wholecloth squares I have chosen to take along with me – I will be kitting these up with backing, binding, Quilters’ Dream batting and YLI thread, along with a selection of Piecemakers quilting needles. Sound like fun?
Perhaps you’d like to order one of these kits and quilt along by email with the group on whichever day we end up meetimg?
Contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org – the other workshop I’m thinking of is one I have always called barefoot quilting – no sewing machines, no rotary cutters no glues or embellishments and minimal cost through tips on savvy shopping and internet use. Just a needle, thread, a ruler and a pencil and scissors! Sound interesting? Lets talk about it – maybe a series of tutorials this winter on http://www.novascotiaquilts.com ?
BEST NEWS OF ALL!!! I had attemped to order this lovely kit which makes up into either a 40 inch in diameter tablecloth or which can be used as a tree skirt. It was back ordered and I recently tried to contact the supplier to see how things were shaping up – their site is disconnected and I fear they are toes up! That triggered a flurry of searching and I finally found a supplier who has, it appears, processed my order – so I am expecting two only of these lovely kits – preprinted quilt top, backing and binding to whch I can add batting and thread – and even a needle too! Contact me quickly – these two won’t last!
PRICE: CHRISTMAS WHOLECLOTH KIT _ YOUR CHOICE OF ANTIQUE WHITE OR NATURAL 40inches complete w backing and bimding $150USD + $25USD shipping = $175USD – specoify if you want thread batting and needle to get going right away on this beauty!
ABOVE is the gloriously retro “Snowflower” kit in double size and this time I lucked out – the floss kit comes with this one – in the beautiful aqua and lighter olive green that is so Mid Century. This kit will make a wonderfyl statement with your sleek Scandinavian and Eames style furniture and you’ll so enjoy working the embroidery and then handquilting it to make it truly your own heirloom!
PRICE “Snowflower” by Paragon in double/queen size complete with original Peri Lusta floss kit $290USD + $35USD shipping w insurance and tracking = $325USD
And BELOW: I finally found another Bucilla Imari – this is a classic that has become very hard to find and is just the thing if you have a bedroom that is in a traditional style – can’t you see it offset by one or two pieces of lovely Imari export Japanese or English porcelain? Traditional and very lovely colours are listed for you to supply. No floss kit.
