News about Beverley

As I posted earlier, the summer school classes with Beverley Sheldrick have been cancelled. WHY?? Beverley discovered a lump in her breast and does indeed have Breast Cancer. She will be having surgery later this month in New Zealand so all teaching engagements are stopped for the time being. I do know that she has said " other than a wonky looking boob...I am feeling fine and it will be fine!!" I wish I could jump across the ocean and be there, but sadly that will not happen today. Please keep her in your prayers!!

So now the shop is settling into summer with this gorgeous weather [so far]. New things into the shop include:

SEW CUTE COUTURE by Gail Doane. IF you don't have this book and love smocking and embroidery...this book will give you a lifetime of inspiration. Complete with patterns and full color photos...I have already dreamt of five sweet outfits using either fabric from the shoppe or from my home stash. A wonderful book for smockers !!

288 beautiful colors of FINCA cotton floss by PRESENCIA arrived!! When I say beautiful...I mean soft, and grouped by color family not number!! Made in Spain, there is also varigated floss...and three metallic...silver, light gold, gold. I am pleased to have this floss...and hope to expand to the complete collect for Perl Cotton and SEWING threads.

Additional handkerchief linen is in...Tan/brown. White.

Oliver n S patterns are up front...and hopefully come fall a trunk show!! along with her new pattern. And if all goes really well...I hope to have the designer in for a day of sewing class using her newest pattern. Details/dates coming!!

Again, I have to say THANK YOU to all for the support and encouragement I receive from all who shop with me. As I continue to try and up grade, update and continue filling inventory I thank you all for helping keep my little slice of heaven going. Todays' economy is not encouraging, but so far...we continue.

Enjoy summer stitching....more news soon!!
