Monday, Sept. 6,

Thank you, everyone, who has reached out with kindness this week. I helped move my dad into a memory care facility last Thursday. He has struggled to acclimate, but will get there with time. He no longer knows friends or family by name (or at all). He did use my name once last week, which was nice to hear. He hasn't used it much for the last few years.

Expo orders I placed are here (some of them) or on the way. I have been starting to put items online. Remember that I do not do holds or preorders. Those get tricky with the number of customers I serve and the problems with delivery services these days. I don't like to sell something, typically, unless I have it firmly in hand.

I have a sampler reproduction that will be in the Christmas issue of Punch Needle & Primitive Stitcher this year. I also am finishing up putting together a book of red samplers that is called "Red Letter Day." That will come out later this fall, and I am so excited about it!

Hope everyone is staying healthy and happy, and that you are all finding time to stitch. - T

I don't carry anything I don't like -- truly! There are so many great designs, old and new, so many samplers to stitch, so many fabrics to fondle, and lots of great fibers, books, tools, trims, and more.... watch for more expansion of products  -- to not only include what's good in needlework, but what's good in .... well, being good!

You're going to love my flat shipping fees -- $3 in the U.S. Really! The more you buy, the better that deal gets, so get a clickin'.
