Just a quick post to let you know that there are a lot of January sales going on at different embroidery-related spots around the web. You might want to check out your favorite online embroidery shops to see if they’re running any specials!
The one that intrigues me most is Hedgehog Handworks 15% off everything sale for the month of January. If you’re looking for goldwork supplies, now might be a good time to get a better deal through Hedgehog Handworks. They also have some wonderful books on their site! Some are harder-to-find (you won’t find them at Amazon, usually!), while others are more common and can be found cheaper elsewhere. Hedgehog carries Lanto Synge’s book, The Art of Embroidery, which is on sale right now for $76.00 ($13.00 less than Amazon if bought new). They also have some great European monogramming books and so forth that you won’t find readily available in the States, as well as some excellent resources on historical samplers.
Anyway, if you decide to check out Hedgehog Handworks January sale, they require a coupon code at check out.
Update, 2017: The owner of Hedgehog Handworks retired in early 2017 and the shop is now closed.
