Welcome to my Blog

Hello and welcome to the new India Grace Designs Blog. I've never tried blogging before so please bear with me. Here I intend to post information about what is happening with the business, new designs, exhibitions, collaborations etc. I'd love people to post feedback too, especially if you've enjoyed sewing one of my designs.
I'm starting to take India Grace Designs in a new direction and will hopefully begin selling my 'chart only' packs through shops. I'm redesigning the logo because I feel that the current one doesn't work with a lot of my newer designs. As soon as that is finished I will start pitching to shops starting with the UK , so hopefully India Grace Designs will start appearing at your local needlecraft shops soon.
I am currently taking part in the online cross stitch expo http://www.cross-stitch-expo.org/ it runs from the 1st to the 14th of June and features a range of new designers and some good bargains.
I'm starting a collaboration with Kay's Kullors http://www.kayskullors.co.uk . Kay produces lovely hand dyed fabric and threads and I am designing a range of Hardanger designs using these threads. Hopefully we will be able to launch these later in the summer.
Other designs coming soon - A triptych of Hardanger designs (three variations on a single theme), a Hardanger/Cross stitch birth sampler and several other ideas including a cross stitch Incy Wincy Spider.
