SANQ - Basket Issue

This new issue of Sampler and Needlework Quarterly features an article about 17th century beaded baskets I wrote as well as photos of historic pieces and it features Rachael Kinnison's amazing basket (for the contest I ran earlier) on the front cover!!

If you are interested in a copy, SANQ sells single copies on their website OR you can sign up for a subscription and get the current copy free plus the next four.  Go to their website for more info:

Congratulations Rachael on making the cover!!

If you want to see Rachael's newest ventures in 17th century beadwork, you can follow it on her blog:  She is making an authentic jewelry case like Martha Edlin did along with her casket.  Scroll down for the King - he is amazingly done!
