 Dealer Newsletter :: September 2012 

Dear Industry Partner,

It's FALL … the time when the knitting season begins to heat up! In salute to that, this month's newsletter banner features Maple Leaves Scarf knitted in Mountain Colors Winter Lace., color Prairie. I hope you enjoy seeing it and that it inspires you to put suggestions for fall-themed HeartStrings designs on display for your customers.

By the way, this little guy pictured to the left above kept me company for a long time along a trail to Lake Lawn in Rocky Mountain National Park. It was a beautiful day hiking and a nice break from helping John move into his new patio home in Colorado. I really like the area, so I am planning to visit again soon to catch the Fall colors in the Rockies!

Studio closed September 25 - October 17, 2012
Please order stock you need prior to Tuesday, Sept 24. Subsequent orders will be shipped as soon as possible after Wednesday, Oct 17.
Sincerely, Jackie E-S

Laura L of Fort Wayne, IN writes: " The pattern is of excellent quality: well-written and obviously test-knitted. I am accustomed to "tweaking" patterns to improve them as regards to technique or terminology. This pattern is great right out of the gate. Thank you for the obvious quality control that went into this product. "

MAPLE LEAVES SCARF (top right) Easy to knit on just a few stitches and enjoyable to wear in a variety of ways. This delicate lace scarf is designed with a knitted lace pattern stitch where the silhouette of yarn over eyelets looks like maple leaves. Pattern #A30
