New Laura J. Perin Design: Long Autumn Panel

That's right. Another new design from Laura Perin, the second long sampler panel, and this is a beauty! Laura just sent us this preview so we could have it ready for you by the end of the week.

Like One Long Panel, this purple and orange design is based on a single Caron Collection Watercolours, with DMC #5 perle coton, YLI ribbon floss, and Kreinik braid completing the colorway. She's provided an alternative colorway in teals and oranges. The two Watercolours are vibrant!

We'll be offering Color Play: Long Autumn Panel as a chart, kit, and thread pack. Preorder yours now! We expect to receive the charts in the next few days.

An Exciting New Designer, Threedles

While browsing the recent online Needlework Show, we were excited to discover Threedles Needleart Design, showcasing the artistry of Kurdy Biggs. We think you'll find these two charted needlepoint designs fascinating and irresistible.

"Looking Glass" is a stunning 12.75" diamond offered with three different colorways, based on Black (pictured), Blue, and Yellow canvas. It uses a wide variety of threads and stitches and looks to be an interesting stitching experience for the intermediate stitcher.

"Seasonal Rays" is a visually arresting small piece, 6.5" square, perfect for toting along wherever you go. There are four colorways based on (surprise!) the seasons: Spring, Summer, Fall (pictured), and Winter, all using a nice variety of threads and stitches.

Hurry over to the Catalog and check them out. You don't want to miss these!
