Snippets




Remember a few weeks ago I told you a basic schedule of when I was going to start releasing my sampler designs?


Well, forget all of that!


I've changed my mind!

Thanks to some good advice from a very good friend (Carol), I've decided I'll release my first seven designs at one time.

And I'll tell you why!

I'll be selling my designs on Etsy.


And it will save you shipping costs if you can order more than one pattern at a time.


And it give me the time I need to get the chart work done, photography done, charts printed, patterns put together, etc.


But it won't be long!


Most of the samplers are stitched; I'm just waiting for two more to come back from stitchers.  (NO pressure Beth and Sue!!!)


Waiting for a few frames to arrive.  (NO pressure Janet!!)


Then I'll be able to get everything ready!  I can't wait!!

In the meantime, I get to tease you with little snippets!!

My heartfelt thanks to Joanne, Beth, Bonnie, Kim and Kevin for making these little snippets possible. I couldn't do it without you guys!

Have a great weekend!

OH MY Gosh!!!! I wanted one now and more to come!!!!! Everyday, I have been pulling up your blog to see "is one been released todaAY" Oh well.. Kathy,is there anyway to enlarge your font a bit? My fifty something eyes have a hard time with the small font on the dark grey background!!! Not sure if others find it hard to read as well??? Thanks again for designing needleart again!!!!

Oh I can't wait they look delicious! They will definitely interfer with my Scarlet Letter stitching, but exceptions must be made!

Jodi S said...

I agree with your new schedule of releases. I love what I am seeing in the snippets, can't wait to see them and order them!

Charlene ♥ SC said...

The snips are intriguing! Can't wait to see more. Will they also be available in PDF format?

Lois Anne said...

Do I see a Tombstone Angel and a bat that must be Halloween? Cannot wait!

Beth Wiksen said...

You are very welcome, Kathy. It is both a joy and an honor to stitch for you. I am having a blast with the latest pattern!

Cari said...

Kathy...I was wondering why you sell your designs on ETSY rather than through needlework shops. Thanks in advance for a follow-up comment.

Kathy Barrick said...

Hi Cari,

I'll be selling on Etsy and will have Hoffman and Norden as my distributors so shops can certainly carry my designs if they'd like. If I sell on Etsy, my charts are available to everyone. Just trying to make life easier!

Will you be showing and selling your new charts at market next month? When will we get to see them?

Kathy Barrick said...

No, I'm not going to Market. I'll be posting photos of all of my new designs as soon as I return from Montana on February 7th. All of my frames should be here when I get home, so as soon as I get the samplers stretched and into their frames, I'll post photos!

Kathy,
How exciting that you are going to visit Anne. Please give her our best and tell her we also want her to bring her designs back to us! I hope you enjoy your time together and tell us all about it when you return. We all would like an update on our friend Anne.

Can't wait to see your new designs too.
