New Design ideas!

One of the big pieces of feedback that Tako Fibers has been getting is "The silkscreened image is so pretty on its own, I don't want to embroider over it!" So, my next idea for kits is to have a multicolored silkscreened image where you only embroider over parts of it. The silkscreened artwork would be part of the design. I have a kit from the '70s that uses that technique (even though its kind of an ugly image) and I think the idea is super. What do you think?

I am also super excited, because I have finally opened up a wholesale account at Brown Sheep! Yay! I am planning on selling crewel yarn by the yard in my Etsy shop, as well as packages of complimentary colors. Also, I am going to be selling hopsack by the yard so that more people can do crewel embroidery without needing to make one of my patterns! yay!

Happy new year to everyone, have a safe and happy eve! We are going to see We Wrote The Book on Connectors tonight at the Blue Moon! Awesome night, fun time!


  1. I saw you at UCU! I think selling yarn and whatnot is a great idea. Oh, and have fun at Blue Moon.. that'll be a good show!
