Searsport Rug Hooking
Current Wool of the month
April showers bring May flowers.... but APRIL FOOLS! We know there’s still snow and ice for some of you! But under that we know the pussy willows are popping out! Hints of color are starting to show all over! We started with a nice raspberry plaid and worked out from there. Fidget, the white with the black flecks is one of Julie’s favorites and the gray striped Wall Street is a great seller too! And a bright mottled pink adds some pops of color to the whole thing. The embellishment pack this month is fun yarns and ribbons that go with it, a little scoop of beads to add sparkle and a ball of valdani #8 pearl cotton to play with!
Those of you that have followed us from the beginning will remember the old “Wool of the Month” we did for years and years. We have had many ask about it again, so we are bringing it back. But we have made a few changes that will make it even better we think! First off is the size of the pieces of wool, they are square now to appeal to rug hookers and appliquérs. We used to do the long pieces so you could cut nice long strips for hooking. Now rug hookers will get the standard 16-18 in strip, depending on how the wool fulls up and appliquérs get a nice size piece to get lots of shapes cut out of! They measure roughly 16x14.
****Each month we have a pack of extras that you can add if you like. They will be a $12 valuedepending on what we add for embellishments. They will coordinate with the colors of the current month to add something extra to your work wether you stitch or hook. It might be an accent bunch or hand dyed velvet, templates to trace, silk, beads or a mix of all those! But it will all work in rug Hooking or appliqué work ***
The wool of the month is $28. The extras are $12 and vary each month.
If you choose one month we will send the current month now.
If you select 3 months you will get a little price break and we will send the current month and then the first of the next two months you automatically will be shipped those selections.
With the 6 month and the 12 month you get free shipping, a price break and a new wool packet shipped to you around the first of every month for the next 5 or 11 months after the first shipment comes to you!
There are limited amounts each month and when they are gone they are gone. These are 4 fat 1/8 of each wool for a half yard of washed ready to work with wool.
