Get Yer Red Hot DoD Magnets Here!

Tapestry Fair has quietly added to the magnet and accessories part of their website. They now offer Day of the Dead magnets using Manuel Salas' artwork, and there is more!  Check out the cat magnets, for example, or the rose.   Peggi at Tapestry Fair says that Manuel "makes the bottlecap part and then sends them to me for glitter, resin, magnets and packaging. These are done like traditional Mexican folk art with much stronger magnets."

Tapestry Fair offers little "bottle cap" style frames to showcase your favorite smaller magnet, magnetic bracelet cuffs so you can wear your favorite magnet, non-magnetic scissors fobs in case you don't want to magnetize your scissors, bracelets to wear your magnets and scissors fobs until you need them, and lots more fun things.  Have a good browse while I try and decide which Day of the Day magnet I "need"--MG-14 and MG-15 are my current favorites.  Which are yours?

Peggi, can we expect more Manual Salas ladies in the near future?

  1. Hi Jane - Funny you should ask, because I just finished another Manuel Salas lady a few days ago! I don't want to spill the beans yet with a photo, but I think one of our local shops will be offering her, with a stitch guide, as an exclusive......so stay tuned to the Blogs and she will show up. I'll be bringing her to the TNNA winter show for pre-orders, hopefully with a few "friends". Thanks for the mention.
