Design of the Month – May 2018

DESIGN OF THE MONTH FOR MAY
Pattern: CELTIC KNOT
SPECIAL OFFER AT 20% off RETAIL

old blues, tan, sand

CELTIC KNOT #CEL-01

My Celtic Knot pattern was inspired while perusing pages from the Book of Kells. Many of those beautifully hand drawn and hand colored pages contain interlocking or scrolling vertical bands at their edges or around text. Translated to needle and wool, my design is a combination of interwoven vertical bands for a small pillow (15″ wide by 11″ high) , suitable for all levels of stitching experience, and available in 7 color choices.
Perhaps you are considering teaching someone to stitch cross-point™? Now is the time to take advantage during this special offer. The regular retail price is $59.00 but available this month only for just $47.20, plus shipping.

Companion pillow kits example:

teals, bronze, soft greens

NEW COLOR – #CEL-07

Introducing a new color addition to this popular pattern in teal, bronze and soft greens, also allows for the inclusion of a whole range of companion pillow kits in teal, sea greens, bronze and tobacco. An example of the many options available this month:teals, sea greens, bronze in companion pillows
All of these are available from the website Pattern pages. Celtic Knot is available in 6 other color choices with companion pillow kits listed on the CELTIC KNOT pattern page. Companion kit orders apply to the particular Celtic Knot number ordered.

As you know from previous offers, when you order online from the webpage, PayPal will bill the regular retail price and we issue the 20% discount back to your credit card via PayPal when we process the order at our studio. So far, in over 10 years of doing it this way, we have had zero problems or complaints.

Happy stitching!

Design of the Month – SOUMAK April Follow Up

MORE ABOUT SOUMAK COMPANIONS available this month at 20% Off Retail

As the designer of my cross-point™ pattern collection I often visualize what a pattern group will look like in a room setting. One of the most fun patterns for me to design and color was SOUMAK. In the March blog post I talked about the origin of this historic pattern. The 01 colorway (as do the other colorways) has within its own companions, including the large square not shown above. These colors of blood red and greige would be perfect for leather upholstered furniture or for a masculine office space.  A whole room setting can be build around these colors adding the following additional companions:

MORE PAIRINGS

The same applies to the other 4 SOUMAK colorways shown on the Pattern Page on the website. Pairings within the pattern, plus additional companion kits in the same color combinations, can create a whole room of cushions. Continue reading
