Limited Edition Linen Colors

Here are a few of the linen colors I am dyeing....I like the limited editions....a one time color....grab it while you can.....but I will also carry stock colors. Sometimes I dye the first color base and then customize it when I am ready. A rose tine....yellow or amber tint, etc.
These are the basic light colors. Antique Champagne is a light yellowed cream with mottling.  I still need to photograph that one. Second photo shows the Mottled Cream and Victorian Rose Blush.  Here are some of the others: Top left fabric is a light cream parchment. Nice if you like a white/cream fabric.

Third and fourth photos shows some of the limited edition 1/8 and 1/4 pieces available in 32ct.

Nest we have some of the limited edition pieces in 36ct

And last we have some smaller pieces in 40ct.

These are so much nicer in person. You can see the mottling/shading better. But unless you come visit will just have to select from the photos. LOL
If you missed the pricing it is
1/8 is $9
1/4 is $19
1/2 is $39.
Custom order full yards are $70-75.

Thanks for stopping by. I am going to put away the dye pot for today!

Remember your club invoices for floss and linen will go out tomorrow. If you want to add anything be sure to let me know as soon as possible.

Have a nice weekend.

Hand Dyed Linen Colors and club info

It has been a very busy week with boxing floss for the 3 clubs and now the hand dyed linen club. I had hoped to show pictures of the linen colors yesterday but personal things got in the way. I will show some linen on Saturday. Then if you would like to add any to your floss club order I can add it to the invoice. I will have several colors available in 28, 32, 36 and 40ct.
Invoices for the floss clubs will go out on Sunday. If you have any changes please let me know as soon as possible.

The pre-paid (for the year) shipments have gone out today since the floss was ready to ship.

I was asked if I use cold water dyes or hot. I use hot. And the linen is heat set with a 400 degree press.

Thank you again to all of you in the floss clubs and all the new members in the hand dyed linen club. I truly appreciate your business.

New linen, and some Floss and Linen club questions for you

It has been a very busy month with lots of linen going out to new customers. Thank you very much. I will be adding stock colors  soon.
I dyed two colors for the Linen Club for October. A basic mottled cream and a Victorian Blush which is a cream with a very slight mottled rose tint. See second photo. (shown are 36 and 40ct but I will do these in 32 and 28ct too) I may do a small sampler on this linen soon. I think the basic mottled cream will be great with other tints as well.

If you tried the linen last month and want to stay in the club please let me know.
If you want to join the linen or floss clubs you can join at any time during the month for 1 month, 3 months, 6 months,  or auto ship each month until you decide to cancel.

 If your floss club membership is expiring please let me know if you want to continue this month as I will be sending out invoices on the first for all the clubs.
***You can also switch from floss to the linen club. I have had several do this since they have a huge assortment of hand dyed floss from the club.

I purchased 28 count linen this month and will begin dyeing it this week and is available for the October club shipment. Mottled cream, Victorian Rose, Autumn Browns, Parchment, etc. I will try to do a list of colors available in all counts soon.
Fat 1/8 is $9
Fat 1/4 is $19
Fat 1/2 is $39
Full yards available upon request and vary from $70-75 per yard.

Thanks for stopping by. I am headed to the dye pot!

Hand dyed linen give-away, enter now!

I am never too busy for a give-away for my Faithful Followers. Lets give away some hand dyed linen! A free month in the  new Linen Club!

I have been swamped with individual orders this week. I was going to show some pictures and I was simply too busy. I have a few pictures today.....I am never real happy with my photos but this will give you an idea of a few colors.
Some of my antique sampler or parchment are simply mottled a bit with a darker cream on a light cream.

These colors are more mottled and I think the Autumn Browns is my new favorite. I dyed 36ct linen for this one:
I think it is a little darker than this photo and very rich looking. If you like Autumn, primitive or Halloween stitching, you will love this one.
Then I have some Light Caramel, tans, pale green and Sage (bottom and it is a little greener than this photo)

The pricing is Fat 1/8  $9
Fat 1/4 is $19
Fat 1/2 is $39

I have 32,36 and 40ct. So in your comment please tell me what count and color you like.

Lets give away some hand dyed linen.

Good luck to all who enter.

New Autumn Colors Collection and Club invoices go out today

Such a busy invoices will be going out for the 3 floss clubs and the new Linen Club. I want to thank the 21 new members who signed up this week. You can join for as many months as you would like. Quite a few of you also added a piece of linen to your floss club shipments and I thank you. Adding the linen has added a lot more work but I really love dyeing the fabrics. I will show pictures soon.....hopefully this weekend.

The floss club shipments will go out on the 5th as usual. If you would like to add any linen or floss to your order just let me know. I will add it to your invoice.

If you have not received your invoice by this evening be sure to email me.

I have one more new collection of floss that has just been sent out to be carded by my 3 faithful elves. It is my new Autumn Colors Collection. Lots of reds, gold, brown, oranges and an Autumn Green. Here is a peek at what is being carded. They will be back in a couple weeks and I will show them again when carded and boxed and also give a set away so stay tuned.

Thanks again for being Faithful Friends!
