New Tatting Shuttles, Threads, and Books

Thank you to all of our friends who told us about the amazing new shuttles from Clover. They are in the latest Japan box and on the way! We are also restocking picot combs and the lovely Daruma threadOlympus metallics were just restocked and we have copies of the latest Applemints tatting book in stock too.

Clearance Yarns and Items
We are downsizing our yarn selection and increasing our in-house dyed lines.  Snag some fabulous yarns at 40% and treat yourself to some notions and needles while you are at it.  

Changes to Groups and Appointments

If you are local, our in-person groups on Thursday nights from 6:30-8pm and Saturday mornings from 10:30am-12pm are suspended while Tina is gone on her Arne & Carlos Cruise.  Appointments are ramping down and Tina is putting most of the shop in boxes.  We will have a person packing orders while Tina is adventuring, so shipping and porch pick-up will still be available.

IOLI Conference

Did you hear?  The International Organization of Lace, Inc. Conference is back in person for 2022!  Kelli is so excited to be teaching an online tatting class Sunday, plus a 4 day morning tatting class too.     There is still room in her classes and plenty of time to sign up.  We hope you'll join Kelli & Tina at the IOLI Conference in Mesa, AZ for a bit of "BlackSheep on the Road" and some fabulous classes!

We Support Ukraine

Tina and Kelli have been working on some patterns and kits for sunflowers for Ukraine.  Kits are available now with all profits going to World Central Kitchen or Global Giving

You can order your Tatted, Med. Knotted Lace, or Embroidery kit here or order just the PDF pattern here.  The PDF pattern will include all of the sunflower patterns we create in all of the needlearts. 

Blanket-A-Long with Purly Shell Pirates!!

Heather and Danielle, the Purly Shell Pirates, asked if we wanted to host a Temperature Blanket-A-Long and in true BlackSheep fashion, we said yes and no. We are making blankets, but with a twist.

This is a VERY relaxed Crochet/Knit/Stitch/Tat-a-long that you can join at any time.  We have a Facebook group where we can chat and share inspiration.  Tina's Grandma's Flower Afghan pattern is free to participants and Kelli's BlackSheep Blanket-A-Long pattern is too.  We also have kits available in various colors, yarns, and palettes.

Plus, we decided it would be fun to have a stitch-a-long option too.  Tina is stitching a monthly square and you can find those kits here. Kelli is also tatting a temperature table runner and has a free pattern on our Knit/Crochet-a-long page. If this sounds like fun to you, you can join the Facebook Group here or find out more info here
