Beautifully Wrapped

Melita ordered something from Amy Bunger's shop (which is closing in 2021, so hurry and order!) and she was very impressed with how it was shipped to her.

Ruth Schmuff also sends out lovely parcels from her shop, Bedecked and Beadazzled.

I'm sure that there are other shops that take special care with their shipments but these are the two I've purchased from and whose packaging is amazing.

BREAKING NEWS: Nashville Needlework Market Cancelled for 2021

Needlework Retailer has announced that the Nashville Needlework Market (normally held in March but scheduled for May in 2021) has been cancelled.

This wholesale market is primarily for counted designers.  Sadly the organizers have also decided not to do a virtual market, either.  They simply can't handle all the work involved.  Stay tuned for 2022.
