I just can't resist!

I have found a wonderful supplier in the UK for all American folk/whimsy samplers! They are called The Thread Bear and I am experiencing wondeful, fast service from them. I wanted to know if they could get hold of this: A_Most_Noble_Pursuit_sm
"A Most Noble Pursuit" Collaberation sampler plus the linen plus the thread pack of NPI silks. I had a wonderful email off them within a few hours saying they could get the chart and sort out the linen with very reasonable prices and they were also looking into the thread pack prices for me too. They also were very thankful to me for bringing this sampler to their attention! If they haven't got what you want on their website they can still get it to you and their prices seem very very good.
I am wanting to get La D Das Polly Wolly Doodle Polly_Wolly_Doodle_sm and the threads to go with it and I am also thinking about joining Blackbird Designs Loose Feathers Club which cost £5.25 every two months for an exclusive design and for an extra £7.25 you can get the R&R Reproductions pre cut fabric to go with it which is a good price I think. I have been wanting to do a Blackbird design so this may be a good opportunity. If you are in the UK (sorry if I sound like I 'm spamming lol they just seem darned good!) you should definately check this company out. Will let you know what I order and how fast I get it. They said about a week for orders from the US which again is pretty good and postage is reasonable too. Will keep you updated but I have a very good feeling about them. Yay!!!

Hi Hazel. Yes ive ordered from thread bear and they are good. I ordered a few Brightneedle charts from them and they came all wrapped in lovely tissue and ribbon!! However...i often find it cheaper to buy from american stores because even with postage it can still be cheaper than the UK. Crazy isnt it?!! For floss i normally order from sewdiscounted or sewandso (uk based)which you'll find if you google them! This is turning out to be a long comment! Have a great weekend!

What lovely new projects you have coming. I'll have a lot of fun watching your progress as you are working on them. Glad you found a company that is so responsive to you, that makes stashing even more fun.

I know the joy of finding a shop that will happily supply the stuff you actually want - you want to shout it to the rafters!! (and share the joy!!)
I've got Polly Wolly Doodle in my stash too (my mum used to sing it to us when I was little). I love the design Lori came up with for this song - so colourful and vibrant.

I'm not much for samplers, but I've always loved that Noble Pursuit one. Sounds like you've got some nice goodies coming! And isn't it fun to discover a new place to shop online? :)

If you don't want to buy all the Blackbird Loose Feathers that come out, Shakespeare's Peddler ( allow you to buy only the ones you want. Although, if past ones are anything to go by they're all gorgeous! :0)
