Tansy Stitcher’s Trio

This pretty new stitcher’s project is featured as a result of my last group of stitchers who came to Pinks Barn for a weekend class. This super group work the etui section of the trio, initially as a band sampler. You can see from the picture below, that as a band sampler it is very attractive – I was really pleased with the colour combinations and it is quite a challenging piece as it includes 25 different stitches or techniques.

My weekend group of stitchers tested the chart and the colours and a great time was had by all! I have since lined the etui with vintage silk, added the button band, the pin keep and the scissor chateliane.

I have heard from Search Press, the UK Publishers, that my order for hundreds of copies of this book will not be with me until the end of June.

I have not processed any credit cards or banked any cheques as yet- We have Jiffy bags poised and will send out the day they arrive.
