Happy shopping!

Clicking on images makes them much larger and easier to see.


Each seller sends items and I cannot be responsible for their accuracy as to whether all the threads are there or if there is enough fabric, etc to complete the projects. I try to make sure that it is right, but cannot guarantee. Thanks for understanding.

Do let me know if you would like to downsize too!
