      Wow, the Micro Forum is up and ready to go! Hooray for our mods! @veena @luv2stitch2 you two are the best!


      @maestraxanth
      whenever you or someone else wants to build the listing for Anna Sopia Bircham, with photo, I’ll be happy to share with the Our Sampler Years FB group. As mentioned earlier, you are already halfway to your minimum of 12, so I doubt it will take long to get to the required numbers.

      Exciting times!

      Okay, I have everything except a picture of the silks for Anna Sophia forum post.

      I added a couple of things such as where to get the chart, stitch count with a plug for picking up the linen here too, and a reminder that if you call a set, you need to follow through and buy your kit!

      I’ll post my draft in the next comment. Feel free to edit as needed– remember,Vikki has the final say!!!

      Looks great to me! I think @Luv2stitch2’s suggestion makes sense, especially for new HDF users, who are unfamiliar with her color names and numbers.

      Also, $90 for a silk kit is VERY reasonable. Just WOW.

      Is it sad I already had all of these in enough quantity to stitch Anna?

      These are in the same order as the list above.

      OMG they are GORGEOUS!!!

      As soon as Vikki approves the wording, I’ll post!

      Thank you all so much! I dearly missed the support and camaraderie of this group!

      I fiddled with this today. They are a lot less garish than I thought seeing the chart picture at first glance. Much more towards my taste. Still thinking…

      If Vikki wants to sell fabric for this one too, the model was stitched on a high count WDW Straw linen, which isn’t that easy to get either. It’s DMC 436(Kodiak Bear 5129.) Just sayin’!

      Wow, looks great!

      One other thing I thought of. Maybe you might want to add that this kit will provide sufficient thread amounts to stitch the design in the called for thread count linen, but that if they stitch at a lower thread count, they might need to purchase two kits. I know it seems obvious, but better to be safe than sorry?

      I was having a conversation earlier with Vikki about setting up Micros in the shop so that people could purchase. I think the plan is that she is going to ask that people not purchase the kit until the listing is closed, as opposed to when it hits 14, but correct me if I got that wrong @handdyedfibers_l7nu4k. Maybe you might want to add that in as well?

      Thank you for the photos, @skrieser amd @jcash. It sure takes a lot of time to pull single micros and then photograph them.

      I know this suggestion is different from what is in the template (I just thought of it) but I am wondering if it makes more sense to list the DMC color first, and then the HDF. Like so:

      (928) Steelies 2447

      This might make it easier to compare and cross-reference with the listing in the pattern.

      Not so much work really…and happy to help! @luv2stitch2 provided all those lovely pictures for the solids and I started labeling them a few or so at a time to keep in my picture files. I am much more of a visual person; so I wanted to really SEE the colors!

      I do like @veenaโ€™s suggestion if the DMC first. Gives you that nice dmc column in the front.

      Yes, DMC first is so much easier for โ€œnew to HDFโ€ stitchers! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

      WOW! You guys are AMAZING!!!!

      I’m not exactly sure yet how I’ll handle the payment/order option. Or exactly if I’ll need 14.
      I realize at some point I’ll have to pin this down. Sometimes though I’m dyeing things you don’t see and can piggyback dyeing onto those jobs and that will impact my decision.

      You can always say if you float these kits on some other board you can always say they can drop me a line to reserve one.

      Okay, the post is done and awaiting moderation (SO glad it is, because dollars to donuts I botched attaching the picture!)

      I CALL FIRST KIT!!!!!

      @maestraxanth, we have no idea why the post went into “pending moderation”. Anyhow, when I clicked on Approve, the post just disappears. But using the Back button, I was able to retrieve your text, so I posted it as a new post. But somehow the photo is gone. I am still looking into it, but at least the post is up now and people can call.

      Okay, it’s fixed now. The image was too large, so I took a screenshot of @jcash’s photo, reduced the size, uploaded to my Media page, and included in the post. Whew!


      @maestraxanth
      , I made some minor edits to the post to increase clarity, but didn’t delete anything you wrote. Hope you don’t mind.

      Thank you so much for fixing the photo, getting the post up, and editing (improving) the text. I’ve been a tech and academic writer long enough to *expect* editing. (I have had editors who made things…. “Less gooder” but you didn’t do that!)

      I’ve called my kit! I know someone is posting the kit to Our Sampler Years. I’ll post it to Sampler Heart.

      Vikki, do you mind if I post it to Instagram, since I know how all the tagging works there?

      Of course Jamie. I hope this works and I truly appreciate all the hard work that you all put into these things, to get them off the ground.
      I always felt that the business grew because of people who wanted something and pushed me to those limits.
