We had such a wonderful time in Nashville at the needlework market! We've finally recovered (mostly) and are back to blogging.
Our lucet Make it! Take it! Sell it! hands on demos were a great success! Thanks to everyone who participated. We hope all of you had a chance to practice on your trips home, and are getting comfortable with the technique. If you do have any questions, please e-mail us and we'll work you through it. We'd love to see shops teaching their customers this traditional craft. We plan to have color photos from the instructions posted soon here and on our website, and we're trying out some different materials so hopefully you'll be seeing more designs using this cord soon.
We even taught our stewardess about the lucet on our flight and she's looking forward to giving it a try. It was such a fantastic trip!
Be sure to pick your favorite colors to stitch Taby's Needle Cushion. We've shown it here in Raspberry, but are working on blue, green, hot pink, and even black! It uses a matching color pearl 5 for the lucet cord trim, and coordinating felted wool for the back and the needle strip.
We recently received our newest reproduction back from our fantastic stitcher, Deb. We're working on the frame and chart layout, and will be sharing a sneak peek with you very soon.
Until then, back to the workshop!
