Thank You - Success!

A big thank you for everyone who bought a beaded basket Needlework Nibble this year.  The Holburne Museum has just announced that their fund raising was successful and they have completed the acquisition of the beaded basket below.  It will now stay on display for the public.  I am very proud to let you know that the public funds were completed by the donation from Thistle Threads on your behalf in time to claim a grant challenge.

It will be wonderful to go visit this piece at some point in Bath, England.  I hope that many of you will as well.   I really appreciate the support of the Needlework Nibbles, small projects for fun, as often I am able to do some good in the museum world with them.  This leads to good feelings, museum tours, access to objects for more people and the like.  All good things!

Watch for more Needlework Nibbles in the next few months.  There are a bunch of them under development, some for great causes as well.   If you are interested in one of the beaded basket nibbles, let me know (tricia@alum.mit.edu).  I am taking a waiting list and once I get to a few more people I can have some more rims made.
