Laura's Lahaina Breezes, Stunning! UPDATE

It's another beautiful geometric charted canvaswork design from Laura J. Perin. Her latest creation, Lahaina Breezes, was inspired by a batik cotton print, and what an inspiration! The colors are a divine blend of aquas, teals, and blues.


We're offering this as both the chart and the kit. We are in the process of collecting all the threads and should have them in a few days.

While you're over there at scarletthread.com, check out a new pattern we're carrying, From Molehill to Mountain. It's not really new, just new to our site, and it's more than just a pattern: It's a 157-page book packed with instructions and diagrams for this intensive color study.


We're doing it as a year-long project in our local chapter of the American Needlepoint Guild, which has prompted us to talk to Pam Gardner, the designer of this fascinating piece, about perhaps doing a cyber class with Scarlet Thread. You may have noticed the poll at the top of the blog. Please look at the pattern and let us know whether you would be interested in participating. If there is enough interest, we'll proceed with ironing out all the details. Check out Confessions of a Remedial Stitcher for some pictures of what our chapter members have been doing.

Don't forget to check out the New section of the Catalog. We're always adding things, most recently to Brenda Kocher Designs, DebBee's Designs, and Northern Pine Designs.
