So you want sashiko needles. I hear you! They will be back in stock by the end of the week, if all goes according to plan and the USPS holds up their end of the bargain. White thread will be back as well as a few other sashiko supplies. I’m having to economise when it comes to restocking the shop, and it’s tough to choose which items to order and which to leave until next time. If there is a particular item or color of thread you’re waiting for, let me know and I’ll add it to my list for next month.
I’ve been digging through some of my old show stock and pulling out loads of half-meter lengths of yukata cotton. I often cut short pieces to take to shows so I wouldn’t have to drag around cases and cases of full bolts, and now I’ve got piles of these short cotton fabrics that had been forgotten, all waiting for good homes. Some of the cottons in these bundles have been out of stock since last year when I was doing more shows, so grab what you like before someone else does!
FOLKWEAR patterns are back in stock. I found one remaining pattern on a shelf and wondered what had happened to the rest… then I realized they’d all sold at shows last summer. Oops.
More to come, just as fast as I can photograph, edit, and get it up in the shop!
