To help, to continually help and share, that is the sum of all knowledge;
that is the meaning of art.
Eleonora Duse

This year 50% of my Black Friday Sale profits will be donated to NC Food Pantries.

 All artwork is 15% off through Monday night.
The discount is automatically added to your cart on checkout.
All ONLINE COURSES are still 30% off through Monday night the 30th.


Consider one of my newer online courses, Appli-Punto to Go. It's a quick and easy technique: fusible reverse applique with an option to add in a trapunto effect. Three patterns are included in the class (a dragonfly, hummingbird, and elephant) and I've just added a temporary bonus for the holidays - a sweet little Christmas tree that would make a lovely placemat, table runner, or wall hanging.

All artwork, beading supplies, embroidery kits, and publications in my shop are discounted 15% through Monday night.

The discount will be automatically added to your cart, no code necessary.

I've had a large bag of gorgeous earth toned fused glass cabochons sitting in my supplies for several years. It's time for them to go. You can find grab bags of 5 various sized cabochons for $12 (Usually $25). Add the automatic 15% discount and.... that's a deal.

Don't know what to do with a cabochon? Try the Bead It Like You Mean It pts 1 & 2 online course bundle and learn two different ways to create a beaded bezel. 30% off with the code PLAY
