The Cat's Out of the Bag!

We are tickled pink to announce our new book, A Schoolroom Alphabet: Twelve Cross Stitch Projects Based on an Antique Handkerchief, due out in time for Valentine's Day! The amazing folks at Kansas City Star Books worked with us to bring you a stunningly beautiful book full of practical projects based on an alphabet handkerchief originally from the Collection of Betty Ring. More about the book real soon, but we had to show you a photo of a class we taught last night featuring actual fabric-printed images from the handkerchief. No two projects are alike, because everyone in class stitched and assembled their chosen initial, adding embellishments of their choice. Thank you, sampler lovers, for allowing us to share our creative ideas with you. We had great fun!  --Maegan & Vickie  P.S. The woven table runner is by Vickie's talented sister, Kathie. It's a favorite winter staple on the dining room table.
