Cross Stitch Patterns from Fine Art by Scarlet Quince   Scarlet Quince News
March 2005
 
     
Dear stitching friends,
We have added a partial list of shops and websites that carry Scarlet Quince patterns or will special-order them. If you are fortunate enough to live near one of them, please support them! Retailers: if you would like to be added to the list, please let us know.

We will once again be featured in The Needlework Show, April 20-25. It's a wholesale trade show without the travelling! Retailers can register free through April 15.

 

We have two pattern awards this month! Elizabeth Anderson of Hamilton, New Zealand, received The Dream - Henri Rousseau which she was the first to suggest, and a stitcher from West Virginia received Irene Cahen d'Anvers - Pierre Auguste Renoir. Thank you both for your great suggestions!

 

Model Stitching Update

Lots of people answered our request last month for model stitchers. Thank you to everyone who responded. We are still working through all the emails, so if you haven't heard from us please give us a bit more time. We promise that we will give everyone a definite answer, and if we aren't able to use your help right now, we will keep you in mind for the future.

 

It has been brought to our attention that DMC has discontinued a few colors in the UK. These colors are still available in the United States; we're not sure about the rest of the world or where DMC is going with this. The good news is that they are colors that were very close to other colors. If you run into this and are unable to find one of these colors, here are the replacements:
