Happy, Happy News!!

I have amazing news for you!  This will knock your socks off!!!

Carriage House Samplings is NOT going away after all!!  My baby sister, Marty, will be taking over Carriage House Samplings effective December 1, 2010.  Marty is the best sister a girl could have and I know she will LOVE this new direction her life is taking.  Currently Marty is an Art Director for The Washington Post newspaper and an oil painter.  Her work is fabulous!  You can see it on her website (www.MartyBarrick.com).  She is looking forward to continuing the Hawk Run Hollow Series, which I'm sure will thrill you all to death!  Marty has been brainstorming other ideas as well and I can hardly wait to see what she does!

So, I will continue to fill Etsy orders until December 1st.  At that time, Marty will be filling all orders from her place.  The Carriage House Etsy shop will still be disappearing on January 1, 2011.  Stay tuned!!!

I'll be back soon with more info as it becomes available.  Just wanted to give you the scoop!!

Kathy,

That is GREAT news!

I was so excited~ somehow I deleted my comment from before!

Danielle said...

Yay! Shouldn't be greedy, but will she still sell the old designs as well?

Bertie said...

Great, I will now stop hamstering your charts LOL.

Diane said...

This is the best news I have heard in a very long time! So glad that CHS will continue! Thank you, Barrick sisters!

I have the same question as Danielle: Will the old charts continue to be available? I went through and made a list of about 20 that I still need, but there's no way I can get them all before the end of the year. Would love to still have access to the old patterns for a while yet.

(Yes, I know I should stitch all of the CHS patterns that I already own, but I'll still do those, too! LOL!)

Walfrida said...

Great news!!! Love your designs!!!

Cindy in Virginia said...

Happy happy joy joy!

Laura said...

JulieF1962 said...

SOOOOOOO happy to hear this!!!

Nancy*Glory Bee said...

Does this mean you will be designing too? Nancy

Labores de Mercedes said...

YESSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. I haven't stitched any of your designs yet because I discovered them not so long ago and I had many pending projects but my idea is to at least stitch the four girls and the Run Hollow series. As soon as you said you were closing down I bought the ones I had missing; I don't know when I'll have time but I'll do them for sure. This is soooooooooooo great news.
