"THINGS UNSEEN" MYSTERY SAMPLER
BY
LIZZIE KATE

Call or email by October 9th to reserve yours.

Lizzie Kate has announced she will be doing a mystery sampler entitled "Things Unseen".  The sneak peek is to the left and promises to be perfect for year round display with heart felt words to live by.

This will be a 3 part sampler with the first one shipping to stores November 3rd.  Each pattern is $9.00 and includes a 3 part bonus pattern.  The sampler stitch count is 165W x 205 H and the bonus piece is 154W x 34H.

The fabric used is Wren from Picture This Plus and will be available in 14 & 16ct Aida and 28 & 32ct linen.  The Aida fabric is priced $14.50 and the linens are $20.50.  You choose the fabric at the time you sign up and it will be with part 1 of the pattern.  The fabric for the bonus pattern is of your choosing and sold separately.

The floss pack is made up of 14 WDW threads which will include an exclusive new color especially made for this design.  The floss pack is $32.20 and will give you enough to stitch this plus the bonus pattern that is included.  Due to some colors needing multiples and the exclusive new color, it is recommended you purchase the floss pack.

The embellishment pack includes a bunch of goodies including 2 exclusive Helen's Rose buttons from JABC that were designed by Lizzie Kate.  This is optional but will really enhance your piece.  The price is $17.00 per pack.
Even though the pre-order date has passed you can join at any time.  The first part of the pattern, fabric, floss, and buttons should arrive early November.
