Followers of Nova Scotia Quilts have been wondering where I have gotten to.
I am most definitely still in business. I am settledin and living on thee edge of the small community of Souris, in a lovely cottage on the shore of Colville Bay in the east of the province. The view and the colours inspire me!
SOME WORDS ABOUT THE CURRENT MARKET IN VINTAGE QUILT KITS:
Over the last five years, it has become next toimpossible to source the earlier kits from the 30’s through to the late 70’s.
When they do appear on the secondary market they often have issues, and if not, are prohibitively priced.
Unfortuneately I have been unable to find any at allover the last three years. This does not mean however that my inventory is depleted and when I checked I found at least eighteen very desirable vintage applique quilt kits only a few of which have issuessuch as partial completion or missing pieces. Most are fresh and unstarted and some date to the late 30’s and early 40’s prior to the start of US involvement in WW2.
Over the bext two posts I will be showing these kits with current pricing and encourage you to act quickly on these treasures as it appears the market has moved o to the kits produced in the 80’s and 90’s as the boomers start to downsize. As my inventory shrinks
I doubt very much if I can replenish it so act now!
Stay tuned – more in the morning!
And remember that I have also got planned some popsts on my updated inventory of wholecloth kits and traditional cross stitch quilt kiys
