Hooked Rugs Spring Newsletter - 2013 * * *
We maybe in the Spring Season but it still is hanging onto a
chill in the air. The trees are starting to show buds so there is hope Spring
will spring soon.
We have taken the dyed wool off the web site for the time
being. For over twenty years we have dyed the primitive swatches. I can't
believe it is that long myself. We no longer can buy the base colors that were
used to dye many of them. This is the main reason for discontinuing them. We
will be putting up new colors in a different format.
We will offer them in fat quarters to begin with. This will
take some time to start up a whole new line but we will work at it and put up a
few at a time. The primitive swatches had a light first value, a medium second
value and a dyed texture as the third value. We may put a few new ones of these
out without a dyed texture. Time will tell what we end up with. Many of you have
made suggestions and we will see how things go. We put out a new swatch without
a texture and it sold out before we ever got it on the website. We will dye it
again and get it up. This particular swatch was something that many customers
have been asking for for a long time. One of the fat quarters will be our teal
color . Teal is selling very big now and we have a teal color that we are happy
with. That will be coming up very soon on the web. We also will be coming up
with backgrounds. I want to make up mixed bundles with a dyed texture in there
to make mottling interesting. We also have Sheep Scraps. These are a mix of dyed
colors in small pieces for applique. These are ready to go and will be coming up
As you can see we aren't sitting around. New dyed colors, new
kits. I wish I could come up with a new hair do!!!!! This is short but we will
let you know more as we move along. Enjoy the Spring.
We have Garden Angels which is a little angel with a watering can and flowers
and also a garden bee flying around flowers in the shape of a heart. These are
new soaps for spring and are packaged in a clear box. They retail for $6.75 and
are a great hostess gift and a lovely soap for the powder room. Very good on the
skin. You all know about the sheep soap as we have had them for sometime.
