Dear embroidery friends,
Since the beginning of the pandemic, many things have changed.
The project I would like to introduce here was born in my mind when I found myself, like many others, banned from working overnight. With my store closed, my friends and clients gone, and isolated at home, I realized that I had an extraordinary asset to put to good use, this BLOG!
If I started its publication already in 2016, it was first for fun and then over time more and more seriously. Now I think I have in my hands a very valuable tool to be able to continue doing what I love, SHARING!
So here is the new extended offer that I am proposing to you from now on.
– First of all, the blog is of course free for every visitor.
– You can also choose to subscribe to an annual offer that will allow you to continue to receive our weekly newsletter and to freely download all the patterns made available as you have been able to do until now. This offer will also allow you to take advantage of a gallery where you can publish your creations for the benefit of our community of embroiderers, as well as a discussion forum where you can share your comments, and questions and even receive personalized assistance in your projects…
If you choose to join this subscription, you will also receive with the opening of your account a personal coupon that will allow you to make 8 purchases with a 10% discount in the Canevas Folies online store during the subscription period.
– It is also possible to subscribe to an offer allowing you to receive the newsletter and download the designs for the duration of one month. This offer is renewable manually.
– For visitors who do not subscribe to any of the above offers, there will be a charge for downloading the drawings.
I hope that the new direction I wish to give to this blog will meet your approval and that you will be part of the community of friends of Canevas Folies. We will continue to enjoy great moments of embroidery together.
I thank you in advance.
Kind regards,
For more information…
