The Crewel Gobelin Newsletter - March 2013

Hello Everyone

What's new

The TNAA Nashville Needlework Market held annually in March is one of the events that we look forward to each year, as many of our favourite designers release new projects and charts there.

Our first shipment has just arrived, so we have lots new projects to inspire you.

Dear Daughter There are new Blackbird Designs booklets. Maria Selby Humphrey - 1831 is another fabulous rendition of an antique sampler which also includes a pinkeep shaped like a drum. Honeybee Hill is a charming, fresh design based on bees. Dear Daughter is very sweet sampler that would surely be a treasured gift to any daughter.

There is also a new Reward of Merit pincushion, May Basket if you are looking for a quick project or a gift for a stitching friend.

Shakespeare's Peddler has a new reproduction sampler. Elizabeth Milner 1848 which would look beautiful stitched in the suggested Gloriana silks.

Ellen Chester, of With My Needle has released a Mini Quaker Sampler which works in wonderfully with her earlier releases.

If you are interested in antique alphabets, we now have more stock of the Alphabet Samplings Book which includes twelve complete alphabets that can be stitched into your own sixteen page sampling book, or used again and again as monograms.

Coming soon

Imitation and Improvement: The Norfolk Sampler Tradition by Joanne Martin Lukacher would be a wonderful addition to your book collection if you are interested in historic samplers. The book offers more than 350 pages of information about the distinctive samplers stitched in Norfolk between 1730 and 1830. As well as a wealth of detail on samplers, it gives a very interesting insight into British culture in the late 18th Century. If you would like us to put a copy aside for you when they arrive, please let us know.

We are looking forward to receiving our first delivery of charts from french designer Gigi R. Her beautful designs are based on antique samplers and her newest release, Sampler from Saxony, ATS 1871, is inspiring.Gigi also has a superb range of monogram samplers, with a chart specific to each letter of the alphabet, in store very soon.

Stacy Nash Primitives have a number of new charts - we love the whimsical chart featuring a cat and some cheeky mice which we expect soon. The Colonial Homestead Pinkeep Drum and 1902 Paris Sampler Bag which we have in stock have also both been very popular.

Happy stitching,

The Crewel Gobelin
