The Gentle Art will be doing pre-packs of the threads for this sampler; we do not know yet how many skeins will be in it or the price, but if shops are thinking they'll pick some up at market, Jim said you can let him know at The Gentle Art how many, and that way he can make sure to have enough to fill market orders.
I CAN tell you the colors of the wools/cottons (but again, I do not know yet the amounts):
- Tea Rose
- Harvest Basket
- Faded Rose
- Maple Syrup
- Baked Clay
- Schoolhouse Red
- Terra Cotta
- Old Purple Paint
- Barn Grey
- Cidermill Brown
- Forest Glade (I do know you will need a LOT of this color)
I am also designing the new Jenny Bean Gentle Spring Sampler. It's LOVELY so far and is in beautiful soft and gentle springy (think antique spring) colors. The fabric is 32 count PLATINUM Belfast linen, but Navy Bean in Lakeside would make a nice substitute if you prefer hand-dyed. This will also be going in a Family Tree Co. (a.k.a. Crescent Colours) frame.
I will release more information as I have it, and yes, sneak peeks will eventually come your way.
