Hello everyone, hope you are well and had a good Easter weekend?
I am delighted to let you know that the Lala Land pattern pack is now available in the Embroidery store.
As you know this pattern has been designed for the Fairtrade foundation, if you missed the information on this and the little video about it you can find it here: Delivering Happiness. The full proceeds of the Lala land PDF in the digital store and $15 from the proceeds of the pattern pack in the Embroidery store will be donated on a monthly basis.
The initial response to the PDF pattern was absolutely awesome and we have raised over $500 so far. I promise to let you know exactly what we donate every month in total. You can also find the iron on transfer for this pattern here.
Iron On Transfers
Iron on transfers are a quick and easy way to transfer the outline to fabric without having to trace it, no more wobbly lines! Keep a stash of fabric & needles on hand, purchase a couple of transfers and you can download any PDF pattern from the Digital store at any time, day or night. This means you have an instant embroidery project, ready to start stitching. The good news is that you can now purchase the fabric, needles, transfers and cotton bags direct from the Digital store in one easy checkout.
Here is what some of the customers have to say about the iron on transfers:
Alice Sheridan of Pennsylvania, USA, shared some ideas on how she uses her transfers – thank you Alice, so innovative, this is brilliant!
“I use the cardboard from the package to insure the transfer does not bleed through to my ironing surface. And, I use freezer paper to hold the transfer and fabric so it does not shift while ironing. The transfer stays with the freezer paper in the envelope for future use. I love your transfer papers, so much easier for me than trying to trace patterns … hands not so steady now.
Our EGA Region is having an “Opportunity Basket” for the region meeting,. A copy of your book “White Work with Color”, and your transfer papers for that book and material will be among the items in our basket.
I also use the transfer patterns on the reverse side of your cotton project bags, then stitch them with simple stitches. The president, Kathleen Kellar, of our guild chapter wanted to have a bag with “Gatsby” on it, so I did that for her. I love these new bags, I can iron on any of your great designs.”
I also use these good quality organza bags for keeping my project threads in, they are sheer so you can see the colours inside and make a great alternative to plastic bags. The planet will thank us!
I would love to hear from you if you have any other ideas as to how to use the iron on transfers or project bags. Just type a comment on this blog or use the contact page in the store to email me and I will share it.
Meanwhile, wherever you are in the world, have a wonderful weekend, keep smiling and happy stitching!
