Tuesday, March 14th:

I was still in my PJ's this morning when I received a text that a delivery was just 15 minutes away -- my new book, "Most Humble Hands." When my driver arrived, he said, "As soon as I saw your street, I knew who I was coming to see." He was the same driver who delivered my "Red Letter Day" book at the end of 2021.

I never would have dreamed ten or twenty years ago that some day I would be self-publishing books like these. I am so, so proud of how "Most Humble Hands" turned out, and I hope everyone who orders one loves it and finds inspiration in the humble marking sampler.

I really tried to make this book fun to look at, toiling over the scans of antique photographs in my collection, assembling props and art, taking pictures of the models and the original samplers, writing articles and blurbs, and compiling all of it into a book you will have fun looking at some sunny day by a window with a cup of coffee.

Plans are already underway for a third book, but I'll keep details hidden for now. When you purchase my creations, you are helping fund my future endeavors and creations. Some of the money I take in is spent on not only antique samplers, but the props I buy to make these books special. This really is a labor of love, and I hope you can feel it in every page.

Love - 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 -- $5 in the U.S. Really! The more you buy, the better that deal gets, so get a clickin'.


Orders are always filled in the order they are received -- shipping waits can vary from one to seven days, depending on order volume. If you can add it to your cart and pay for it, that means that item is in stock and ready to ship to you (unless it's marked as a "preorder.") If you place an order and see that an item is marked "out of stock," you probably purchased the last one. Items are subtracted from my inventory one-by-one as orders are placed.

I appreciate your business, support, friendship, and well-wishes. They keep me going day-after-day. Cheers! - Theresa
