7/12/17 Progress on the new website continues– nearly 800 products have been transferred, most with new photographs. Still working on the shopping cart/ download/ payment functions but it's coming together.

Bead prices will increase September 1st, as will many of my book titles. I'm also making a slight change in the tiniest seed beads– the 14/0s will now be 15/0s (same beads, just keeping up the numbering used by the factory). The "18" in front of the color number will be dropped, so the color numbers will be consistent throughout all the bead sizes and styles– color #05 is White pearl, so 11/0 beads, 15/0 beads, bugles, squares will all be labeled size, then color number (size 11/0 color #05 as always, size 15/0 color #05 instead of #1805).

7/1/17 A new website is in the works, and I'll have a beta version up later this month. Stay tuned!

8/16/16 Registration is now open for my "Simple Elegance" sampler online class  (a glimpse is shown above) which will begin on Oct. 15th. It's a counted needlepoint project using perle cotton and metallics on #18 mono canvas. Click here for the class brochure.

8/15/16 The phone system isn't working and won't be repaired until the 17th– it's a neighborhood wide problem, apparently. If you've tried to call or left a message with no response, please email susan@sj-designs.net.

6/12/16 Just added– my entire stock of vintage Marlitt rayon floss in 74 colors. Very limited quantities! These skeins date from the '70s and '80s when it was still produced by the German company Springer (before Anchor acquired it) and to me they've always seemed smoother and more supple than the later production runs. All the colors can be purchased HERE.
