Cards on the Web


Cards that our very own Cindy designed have been posted on the website of one of our suppliers.
Whenever Cindy teaches the Quilted Cards class, she designs some new pieces. The technique comes from a traditional Japanese Doll making technique but substitutes Kimono fabrics with Washi (Japanese paper). Hanko Designs is our supplier for kits and beautiful Washi. One day, at the encouragement of our sales rep, Cindy sent some photos to Hanko Designs. A few days later they asked if it was OK to put them on their web site, with acknowledgement that they were from The Mercantile. Cindy said yes. Jump forward several weeks and they are now on their site (along with dozens of other beautiful samples)! Click the link above, then click on the retail web site. Once there, click on the card samples link near the top of the page. Cindy's samples are #12.
We carry the Washi Paper Quilting Kits here at The Mercantile, as well as a selection of Washi and card stock to mount them on.

Where Go The Boats?

(1)

Dark brown is the river,
Golden is the sand.

It floats along forever,

With trees on either hand.
(2)

Green leaves a-floating,

Castles of the foam,

Boats of mine a-floating

Where will all come home?
(3)

On goes the river

And out past the mill,

Away down the valley,

Away down the hill.
(4)

Away down the river,
A hundred miles or more,
Other little children

Shall bring my boats ashore.
