The Goode Huswife (again)!

We've run into a glitch with eBay.  They have temporarily removed our listing for The Book of Spells, but it should be back within 24-72 hours.  Evidently some well-meaning soul thought Anne wasn't the real Anne and reported the listing as fraudulent.  We will get it straightened out very soon!

Thank you for your patience!

The Goode Huswife



I have VERY exciting news for you!  Anne Brown, The Goode Huswife (pronounced The Good Housewife) has decided to re-release her old designs.  And she has enlisted my help.  In the days, weeks and months to come, you will find her old designs in MY Etsy Shop (www.KathyBarrick.Etsy.com), Anne's Etsy Shop (GoodeHuswife.Etsy.com), and on Ebay under Anne's seller name:  AviothFR15.

Actually her first re-release is already on eBay.  It is The Book of Spells and here is the link:

 https://www.ebay.com/itm/162795050300?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1558.l2649

This is going to be quite a process!  There is a lot of work to be done.  Please be patient as we work through the nuts and bolts of having her designs reprinted.

What prompted this decision?  Anne was recently made aware of some of her old designs being sold on eBay that were obvious illegal copies, for outrageous amounts of money.  She hates the thought of stitchers being ripped off for her old designs.  The only way we knew we could stop this was to re-publish her designs ourselves.

In the meantime, please refrain from purchasing Anne's old designs at severely marked up prices on eBay.  Anne's legitimate reprints are on their way.  

If you have requests for certain designs, please feel free to email me kathybarrick@gmail.com or convo me on Etsy.  I may not be able to respond to each email or convo, but will start a list of your requests.

ANOTHER NEW DESIGN!!


Just picked up my new charts from the printer this morning!  Meet Maddie!  She is already in my Etsy shop:  www.kathybarrick.etsy.com

Charts will be going out to shops on my auto and to my distributors very, very soon.

Beth Wiksen stitched the model and mounted it onto an antique butter paddle.  Love how it turned out!  She has reproduction butter paddles available   You can contact Beth on Facebook @ Beth Limb Wiksen for details.

I still have one more new design coming out in the next week or so.  It's a follow-up piece to And Heaven & Nature Sing and it's called "Repeat the Sounding Joy."  Can't wait to show it to you!!

Have a great week!
