After Market Product Information

On a dark and dreary morning in August 2014 #FromTheCauldron announced the birth of Dark Plum Mini Pom Pom.  This is a great substitute for the trim used on #ALongAndWindingRoad by Blackbird Designs.  Barb, Alma, Cathe Ray and I played around with some of the trim and found that this was a great match.  I am working on getting a model completed with the trim attached.  If you are interested in this new color for this project or any other project please contact Hoffman Distributing Company, Inc or From the Cauldron/Dames of the Needle for your trim 'fix'.  We sell direct to shops so please contact your local needlework shop if you are an end consumer and want to purchase this trim.  The picture does not do either piece justice!

Blooming color hanging.  It is just waiting to be shipped to new homes.  Here are Hallow Moon, Fra-Orange and Vam-Purple....wonderful Halloween colors. 

 Red Velvet Cake Pom Pom and Faded Rose Cluny Lace waiting to be packaged.
 Hallow Moon is a wonderfully bright yellow color and just waiting to be used for a new Halloween finish or for a cute summer find.
 Raspberry Pearls, what can I say it just screams bright and ready to go.  Lovely color!!!
 Wonka's Blueberry, it is just bursting to get in a box and come live with someone. 
Newt's Eye, some have said it does not look like an eye, but it is a great green that can be a crazed eye.  Wonderful Halloween Color that can also be used for that great summer design finish....All the new colors are on their way to Hoffman Distributing Company and to shops that have already placed their order.  Look for these colors and if you cannot find them at your local needlework shop have them order them for you.  

Off to work on new designs and brew more color from the cauldron....I see something with bright colors in the future.  

All of my primitive fans do not fret....I have two colors in production for you.

Back again......

Well, the children and I managed to survive the holidays without an oven and heat....interesting times. Then an unexpected move-that was wild, finding a new home during the holidays and moving without time to pack. Then as most of the world saw-hit by two snow storms....that was fun. We are still moving into the new home. Our 'fill in' stuff and my work supplies are in storage till we can find room. I am living without a basement for the first time in over 20 years and that is an interesting adjustment. I will probably have to keep some things in storage, so I will need to figure out how to adjust....or I can kick Isa out and take over her bedroom.....laughing. Well, I am off on my first trip since last year. Quite the interesting adventure since my suitcases were still in the storage unit under a pile of boxes that I did not want to go through. But I am almost pack and ready to leave early dark hundred tomorrow March 14th, 2014. I am flying out to teach at A Thread Garden and I am doing my Shaker vs Quaker lecture for the Orange Cost Sampler Guild on Monday the 17th....I better wear green....and then I am off to Houston to teach at the 3 Stitches March Retreat. You can contact these groups and see if there is any room to squeeze you in for any of the classes... The dye is cast is being taught at A Thread Garden and the Quaker Scissor Fob and the Pin Round is being taught at Orange Coast Sampler Guild. I cannot show a picture of the piece I am teaching at 3 Stitches retreat, because it is a surprise, but you can only get it at the retreat and trust me.....it is wayyyyy to cute!!! Well, I am off to run around like a mad person till I leave.....ebeth

So Miguel and I are very proud of her for making it through her first semester with A/B. May all of you have a very Blessed Holiday. Please stay posted-for new colors and designs. I have a new color coming out the first of the year and also a new design! Also do not forget that TNNA Nashville Winter Market is just around the corner and there will be lots of new designs flying out on to the shelves in your local needlework shops. Ebeth
