Featured Shop-Trudette4Crochet

Trudette is the owner of Trudette4crochet, a place where you will find the most adorable crocheted items.  She is also a full time artist and like many of us has more than one shop on Etsy.

Her supply shop is full of darling little crocheted flowers that would be the perfect finishing touch to one of your projects.  She also crochets lacy lids that would make something very special such as a jar of homemade preserves or maybe a quart of your grandmother's soup the perfect gift.  The ideas are endless.

Featured Supply Shop-NAKPUNAR

As promised, I am continuing my features of any followers of my blog.  I so appreciate all of you.

Nilufer is the owner of NAKPUNAR, a place where you can buy lovely Emery pincushions, Emery filling for pincushions and various colors of DMC Perle Cotton threads as well as some other fine supplies.

It's always nice to learn something new and that's exactly what happened when I was reading Nilufer's profile.  Did you know that the filling in an Emery pincushion is actually a hard rock mixed with other minerals that actually cleans your skin oils from the pins and needles when you insert them in the cushion? Not only that but it sharpens them as well.  All those years I was sewing and I never knew that.

Nilufer resides in Brooklyn and has been selling on Etsy as a supplier since February 2008.  She has a great inventory so be sure to stop by.
