OUR ANNUAL SPECIAL OFFER
extended to DECEMBER 31, 2019
AT 20% OFF RETAIL
ON ALL PILLOW KITS
November was such a busy time with Thanksgiving, followed by Black Friday and Cyber Monday that our special offer may have gotten lost in your inbox. We are extending the offer to December 31 to allow us and you to catch our breath. Here is another opportunity to stock up on kits to stitch during Winter’s quiet times.
CORRELATED CROSS-POINT™ KITS
We had such fun pulling images of our kits and other fun photos for our Pinterest “pairings” board. As you know from our website , we always include companion patterns by color with each kit listing. Here is an example, using Pisac as the starting point:
Have fun putting together your own group of correlated patterns and colors. We offer a wide range from muted sea spray and beige, to black and white, to bright Mediterranean blues, to soft sages and bright greens, to deep reds and brilliant tomato, gold and bright yellows. From Color Schemes (from the top bar) you can also find inspiration for whatever your personal color preferences.
Now is the time to add to your collection of cross-point™ pillows, 20% off retail amounts to quite a bit. As with all our special offers, when ordering from the website, PayPal will initially charge the usual Retail cost and we issue the 20% discount back via PayPal as we process the order in house. It’s worked well for over 10 years now. Every order includes your invoice copy advising you of the refund issued. Also, PayPal offers you the option to pay over time.
WHERE DO PATTERNS COME FROM?
As you know from previous blog posts, I enjoy researching the history of universal designs and have written previously about the 8-pointed star that occurs in nearly all cultures across the globe. Recently I found this old map with text that shows how patterns have traveled east to west and north, across mountains and oceans, lakes and rivers. The map is not complete because so many of the same design elements have also appeared in early cultures in South and North America, the Far East, and islands scattered across the oceans. Just as an example, our Karakum pattern shown above has the same elements as pattern Pisac (the first is from North America, the second from South America). On our website cross-point™, I describe each pattern history in a brief paragraph at the top of the page.
I wish you many hours of quiet contemplation while stitching. Whether the pattern is easy or more complex, all kits include our cross-point Technique sheets as well as individual instructions to reduce counting, where to start, how to continue, how to finish. Have fun – cross-point™ is fast, fun and easy! and, if you need help, please drop me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
