Sharon Garmize, a true master in the needlepoint world, no longer makes these kits! From Sharon's website: Needlepoint has been one of my favorite forms of the needle arts. In the mid 70's I began designing needlepoint. My specialty was silk gauze. I became well known in the miniature field with my work on 40 to 84 count silk gauze. My work appeared in many publications during that period and in the early 80's, I was selected to be a subject in the book, Masters in Miniature, 12 Artists at Work.
Most of that work is in private collections and several museums including the Carnegie in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and the Toy & Miniature Museum in Kansas City, Missouri. I have been privileged to lecture at the Cooper Hewitt in New York City, the exhibit at the National Geographic Gallery in Washington DC, the Museum of the City of New York, Allentown Art Museum, Pennsbury Manor in Pennsylvania and the Flagler in Florida. My miniature silk gauze needlepoint has traveled in exhibits world wide.
I will gladly combine orders for shipping. I will refund any postage overage of $2.00 or more.
