We have a pattern award this month! Lisa H. from Issaquah, Washington suggested The Garden of Earthly Delights - Hieronymus Bosch (shown below), and we've sent her a copy of the pattern. (She wasn't the first person to suggest it, but our email to the first person bounced. Remember, if your email address changes, don't just resubscribe with the new address -- use the "change email address" form on the Member Services page to update your address for the newsletter AND any pattern suggestions you've made. Or if you didn't do that, email us to let us know your old and new emails so we can update your suggestions. Even if it was two years ago.)
We've added color swatches to the floss labels! Here's what they look like:
This will help make sure that when you're finished stitching with a symbol, that you don't put the floss back on the wrong bobbin. (This is mostly a problem with blends, where you may be returning the floss to an empty bobbin.) It is also helpful in finding the bobbin you need, if you have a lapful of bobbins.
Now, we know what you're thinking ... you already have floss labels but these are nicer. For that very reason, we have a coupon for 35% off color floss labels! When you check out, use coupon code LABEL2011. It's good through September 30.
Incidentally, we have also changed to a label material that is supposed to stick better to plastic. It does ... if it's smooth plastic. If you have plastic bobbins that have uneven divots left by the manufacturing process, you may still have to press the labels down a few times before they permanently adhere.
