Argh! So I need to wait just a tad longer to tell you all the fun news from my studio! Torture for me. Licensing is a bit like that...you really have to have a dose of patience when you jump into this arena. In the MEANTIME, let me show you my girlfriends OH SO CUTE! new fabric, needle-crafts shop on the upper east side in Manhattan. Here is a her website, it is a little tricky because it is Pins and needles NYC (gotta add the city part)...and if you venture to her store tell her I sent you. She has THE cutest kits made up for purchase and it is so homey. You might even get to meet her puppy, Molly, who greets everyone with a friendly hello and sniff! She is offering sewing lessons in the shop and carries embroidery and needlepoint supplies too. If you are heading to NYC, you need to plot a path to the upper east side-maybe I can get Rachel to put a list on her favorite haunts and restaurants on her blog somewhere. I passed by a couple of book stores to stop in, one was Archivia Books. I recognized it from a book signing that Cabbages and Roses, Christina Strutt did there last May. Oh! I just popped over to their blog and they are doing a lovely giveaway of a beautiful red cardigan and toile bag here at a blog called Fashionable Interiors. I love anything from the Cabbages!
