Do you have a needlework wish list? Oh, c’mon…. you know you do!
Are you hankering to try some new threads, like fine silks, some crewel wool, some cotton floche or coton a broder?
Do you need a good hoop? Maybe one of these sit-on hoop stands is on your list?
Well, whatever it is, I thought I’d let you know this little bit of news…
Update 2017: Joady, the owner of Hedgehog Handworks, retired in 2017, and regrettably, the shop is no longer with us!
Hedgehog Handworks is having their Shipping Sale right now! They’re offering free domestic shipping (U.S.) and half price international shipping on all orders placed between now and August 31, 2015.
Saving on shipping is a pretty big deal for those of us who live in rural areas or in cities that don’t sport a local needlework shop. Since sales on embroidery supplies are usually pretty rare, I’m always on the lookout for them, or for good shipping deals. This is about the best shipping deal you can get!
Hedgehog has some new items in, too. They’re carrying Soie Tressage, a new line of tiny silk braids that can be used in soutache embroidery, stumpwork, or even for finishing. I’ll show you some of these up close in the future. I’ve been dying to play with them, and I’m happy to see they’re out and available.
They carry a wide selection of needlework tools, including Hardwicke Manor hoops in various sizes and shapes, tambour embroidery tools, and beautiful Dovo scissors.
And then there’s my favorite page on their site. They carry a great selection of hand embroidery linen – that is, linen that’s perfect for surface embroidery. You can buy the linen in fat quarter cuts, which are good-sized chunks of fabric, perfect for several small projects.
Anyway, in case you don’t get Hedgehog’s newsletter and you didn’t know about the free shipping sale, I thought I better let you know about it.
Every little bit helps! After all, what you save on shipping means … more thread!
