This automatic will start shipping to stores this month and will be every 6 weeks.

Each shipment will be for 2 patterns ($5.25 each).  The fabric she uses is 30ct WDW Gunmetal and is priced $5.94 each.

All of the designs use The Gentle Art Threads with Chalk being the primary one.  Additional thread colors are used each month and I will check with you when filling your order to see if you need the floss.

The board she uses for finishing the piece is priced $10.00 each and it comes with ribbon (which can very).  You can finish each one on its own board or change them out as the finishing instructions have you use Velcro.  The boards won't be available until the Nashville market and I will bring them back then.

At the time you sign up please let me know about the fabric and the boards.
