We have been busy at the store moving threads around and making room for new fibers. We have brought in the 7mm and 4mm silk ribbon from Dinky Dyes. The colors are so intense and match the beautiful stranded silk. They have about 25 colors now and will be coming out with 20 more soon. It is very durable and can be basketwoven on 18ct. without shredding.
We will also be adding Petit Sparkle Rays, hopefully in the next couple of weeks and are thinking about adding Panache.
Unfortuneately I won't be going to Columbus Market this year and I am really disappointed but I just can't seem to fit it in.
Lani enterprises now has a website. If you haven't checked it out yet, it is great and well worth the visit. http://www.lanienterprises.com/needlepoint_designs.html.
I was messing around with stitches resently and created this stitch that I am calling Austin Stitch. Try is with the same value of of a color but in differant textures. You could use a Gloriana Silk, Lorikeet and Princess Perle in the same color and then find a Kreinik to go with it.
