The Announcement

Like many of you, we are gnashing our teeth as a result of Kathy Barrick-Dieter's decision to retire her design business, Carriage House Samplings. Thankfully, our stashes are full of yet-to-be-stitched CHS designs.  We know we are not the only ones in this situation, because we have had a number of inquiries as to whether or not we will continue to make the hand-grained frames that seem to be a perfect fit with Kathy's reproduction and folk art sampler styles. We are happy to say that YES, we plan to stay busy for a very long time.

So if you are looking for a frame for any of your Carriage House Samplings designs (or The Goode Huswife,  Plum Street Samplers,  Heartstrings Samplery,  With My Needle or any sampler at all that is just screaming for one of our hand-grained frames), just contact your local needlework shop or a shop listed on our Web site.  As always, we are happy to assist you in your search.

And speaking of Dear Kathy, here is a photo of  her Kingdom Come, featured in our Moulding MCA, design Small Swirl over Tavern Gold.

All the best to you, Kathy! And thanks so much for sharing your enormous talent with us. Our stitching hearts and hands are forever grateful.
