SPRING MARKET!

ONLY ON MY FB GROUP 

My dear Wicked Hares, it's a tradition: at the beginning of spring I MUST clean my storehouse in order to create space for new stash... for this reason I have a bunch of treasures to sell at a very special price. From TODAY till... I don't know LOL  I'll post items I want to sell in very limited quantities: fabrics, ribbons, models, thread packs...

HOW IT WORK: For every item you want to buy I'll send you a Paypal request and at the end of the market I'll send you a final request for the shipping costs.

I hope you'll join this very special occasion!!! Only on my FB GROUP! https://www.facebook.com/groups/409661369107263/

CANADIAN CUSTOMERS

IMPORTANT:
My dear Canadian customers, the problems with your custom and postal service do not get better... Packages get lost or arrive after MONTHS. For these reasons I updated the shipping costs on my Etsy shop. The shipping costs are extremely expensive because they include track with UPS courier.
Not trackable shipment is available on request but I WILL NOT REFUND YOUR ORDER.
I'm so sorry to do this...but in few weeks I had to ship for the second time a lot of orders and I can't afford these costs.
If you need to place an order please feel free to send me a private message to me Isobel Argante and I'll try to do my best to help you.
Thanks

PS: Or order from your local cross stitch shop in Canada, for example Traditional Stitches (Calgary).
If you have a cross stitch shop in Canada please feel free to contact me for wholesale conditions.
THANKS <3 div="">

This is the first release for this Club:
LADY MOTH PURSE


The kit: (that is not included in the Club fee), include: the metallic golden latch, the fabric to stitch the moth, fabric for the back and for the inside of the bag, silk ribbon (color may vary) and 2 hand dyed threads (the metallic thread is not included because it's extremely cheeper to buy it in the States and it 'd be too expensive to include it in the kit).
Order the kit sending an email at : ilfiloincantato@hotmail.com

The Moth pincushion: this adorable moth pincushion can be ordered separately too (the moth not the pattern). All the moths I did are different in colours and details, you might receive a different one, please consider this, the picture is just approximative.
Order the kit sending an email at : ilfiloincantato@hotmail.com

NASHVILLE CLASS 2018

Hello 😊
This year I'll attend again Nashville Needlework Market, I'm so excited!!!
I'll also have a class reserved to the shop owners who will join the market

* If you are a shop owner and want to subscribe the class please send me a message: ilfiloincantato@hotmail.com

1800 NEEDLEWORK PURSE
This workshop will teach you a different way to use hand dyed threads, giving the design a more 3 dimensional aspect, the stitches will pop up from the fabric instead of having a flat aspect. It will also include a technique to spot fabric after the finishing. This rigid bag was inspired by a beautiful ancient purse kept in the Purse Museum in Amsterdam (Tassel Museum).



Kit includes:
pattern
linen
hand dyed thread
fabric for back and pocket (might be slightly different)
silk ribbon
photo finishing
