Random Updates!

Finally posted on the web site: As described in my previous post, new patterns by Pineberry Lane and Notforgotten Farm are in stock and finally made available on my web site. I actually had the patterns for several days or so before having a chance to actually sit down and update the site! I won't re-post pics here, check out my last post to see a couple of samples. Better yet, visit my web site and click on What's New for the whole write-up and all the pics - clicking my Simple Folk banner will get you there.

Restocked and also ready for purchase are some popular patterns from Country Stitches that recently sold out including Sarah's Garden, a charming cross-stitched pocket or "huswif"-style sewing needful. Two doll patterns by Pineberry Lane are back including Herman & Petunia, which sold out quickly before Easter.

Shepard's Shade by Threads That Bind is finally back in stock, this one has been hard to get but we have a handful. I saw a newer one by TTB called Chalkboard Lesson too and that is available as well. Both for punchneedle.

Mark your calendars! The 2nd Annual Fiber and Folk Art Flea Mart, presented jointly by Simple Folk and Primitive Pastimes will be on Saturday, July 25th from 9am-4pm, rain date Sunday, July 26th, same times. Location is Primitive Pastimes, 410 Walnut Hill Rd., North Yarmouth, ME. This is Kim Dubay's shop/studio and the event will take place in her garage. We'll be clearing out inventory in order to make way for new stuff for fall. Get great deals on patterns, books, supplies, woolens, handmade and imported folk art and lots more. Call Kim for more info: 207-829-3725.

On a personal note, I've just celebrated my birthday at the beginning of the week. Kind of a milestone birthday - and I'm not telling which milestone! - but birthdays and New Year's always cause me to take stock of where I am in my journey through life. Still at a bit of a mental crossroad in terms of my business but I've got time to carefully consider a few options before choosing my next path. Stay tuned!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Happy Birthday!
The Flea market sounds fun. We were supposed to head up that way this week, but had to cancel, so maybe we will come up that weekend and check it out.

Hey Debbie, would be great to see you in July, hope you can come! We had a lot of fun last year and there were a lot of good deals to be had. Thanks for the birthday wish! ;-)
