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.

Such such great news! I stitched Pennsylvania Alphabet and get requests to see if I still have the chart. I don't think I've ever seen it on ebay.

Wonderful news! If only "The Primitive Needle" designs could be next!

Kathleen said...

Thank you both for having a true understanding of us the stitchers. I know that I won't get to every pattern I own to stitch, but I sure like collecting your patterns just to know I can if I can!

Kathleen said...

The Flowers of Lebanon please!!

Jennifer McEvoy said...

Any chance of shipping the book of spells outside the US?

How wonderful!! I hate to see OOP patterns marked up to sky high prices by a second seller, I would rather the money go to the designer. I love Book of Spells, I can`t wait to see whta is coming next!!

Beth said...

So very excited!! Wonderful news.

Sharon Torres said...

Oh what wonderful news. Can’t wait. Please tell her thank you from me. Thank you too. Xoxo

Anne L said...

This is great news! It's a win win for stitchers and designer alike. The designer gets the money not the reseller-that always seemed unfair to me and stitchers get to stitch wonderful designs that are more affordable. On my wish list is Ellen Birdseye and Carolina to start. Thanks kathy and Anne!

Jennifer H said...

Oh my gosh!! I am so happy to read this! I love her designs and would love to know if the Peaceable Kingdom and Elizabeth Fischer(sp?) will be available again.

Welcome back Anne! You've been sorely missed.

Jennifer H said...

This goes to a jewelry shop
GoodeHuswife.Etsy.com not a cross stitch shop.

Sadly can't read your blog without highlighting the text. very low contrast text doesn't work for many people.
