Sunday night at the Sawmill…
Please forgive the layout of my blog until I learn how to use templates! Off we go!
Tonight I’m moving forward with many projects and I’m going to introduce you to some vendors I’m building relationships with. The first is DMC the embroidery floss and supply people http://www.dmc.com and the second is PillowCubes http://www.PillowCubes.com!
DMC has now been supporting my classes for the past 6 months and PillowCubes is building a relationship with me through their designer program. Keep reading to find out what I’ve been up to with each of these groups.
DMC Corp has been generously supplying my embroidery classes with floss and assorted supplies along with a bunch of prizes to be raffled at my classes. Big thank you to DMC!!!!
Notice that really nice display of floss! This class took place at Nest on Main in Northport who is also my exclusive retailer.

Here are my prize winners from my recent library class.
The next vendor I’m excited about is PillowCubes!
Let’s find out what is in this box! I placed a small order with PillowCubes I was so excited to open this and start creating!
I know it doesn’t look like much but PillowCubes is an American company located in Tennessee. One of my very favorite states. They have a great selection of both fiber stuffing and pillow forms. Their forms come in both standard and unusual sizes and if that isn’t enough they will do custom work as well. What you see here is two samples of stuffing and 4 pillow inserts. One bag is poly and one is their eco fiber. I bought a small selection of their smaller sized pillows thinking I will use them for amigurumi. Stay tuned to find out what comes of these shapes. In the meantime I cranked out a small 10 x 10″ pillow using one of the pillow inserts.

I’m so grateful to the vendors that help me to be the designer and artist I want to be.
I’m going to end this blog tonight with a shout out to Smiley’s Yarn. www.smileysyarn.com Their warehouse sale was yesterday and today at their Medford NY location. I was fortunate to run into a bunch of my Kings Park Adult Ed students buying up the place. I can’t wait until class tomorrow to be able to discuss all we bought. These guys only sell at a physical location a few times a year but they are available on line. I always recommend to my students to always look at everything because the Smiley’s guys have been know to send out an email blast with a super sale. Sometimes prices going as low as .59 a skein. Yup 59 CENTS! So if you know their products you can score some pretty sweet stuff really inexpensively.
I pick up some YarnArt Harmony. Never worked with it before but it is quickly becoming a favorite…..
This picture doesn’t do the colors in the yarn justice but I’ll hold out with a better picture when this item is finished. Can you possible guess what it will be? Nope not a scarf! But it may inspire me to write a crochet book.
Thank you for spending this little bit of your night with me! Until next Sunday….
