Note from shop owner Hello there my hOOpie friends ... HUGE NEWS in Dande-land!

Let’s start with something absolutely awesome. I was asked to write/design a book for our hoops. YES!!!! I know that you may have seen this on my social media feeds but just in case you didn’t, I was. I worked extremely hard from November through to March to create over 60 designs so that fellow stitchers, just like yourself can stitch up a sea of mini hoop masterpieces. It was exhausting but also exhilarating. I loved every minute of it. It really lit my internal fire. It will be released in early November. YES! You can pre-order it here: https://www.amazon.com/Mini-Hoop-Embroideries-little-masterpieces/dp/1782216650/

AND now to even bigger, but sadly, not so awesome news. Headline:

A Dande-girl without WOOD is a girl that cannot produce hOOps!

Yep, you read it right. NO WOOD! ARRRRRR! I recently received the news that I would no longer be able to get the wood that I have specifically made for my hoops. As you can imagine I went into overdrive trying to find a quick solution and also crashed emotionally while doing so.

I am someone who normally has a plan B, C and D. BUT … with the wood that I use the options are either ridiculously expensive or terrible quality. I could use a lesser quality but, in my eyes this is not an option. It is the quality that makes my original little hoop design stand out above the copycats.

I know every single wood supplier in Australia. I also know of suppliers overseas and I need to seriously think about where to next. It is 100% imperative that the quality remains the same,

I have also been on the hunt, for the past year, for the perfect business to help me scale up production and take on the manufacturing AND distribution side of things. I may just have found the perfect business and crossing all fingers, if this comes to fruition I may just have the solution that I desperately need … RIGHT NOW. It would also mean that I could finally start working on the business rather than in it. Goals!

So … where does this leave us right now? With a heavy heart, it means that I have to close up my Etsy shop, immediately, until I find a solution. If the wood that I ordered had been delivered I would have been fine until the end of the year.
GAH … to say the least!

You can still get Dandelyne hOOps. YES, yes, YeS! As you know I have the best stockists in the world, and many post worldwide. You can find a list on my wenbsite: www.dandelyne.com

ALL VERY HUGE! I know! I apologise a million times over that I cannot fix this immediately. The weight and emotions that erupt every time I think about having to stop production is enormous. I WILL work this out!!!!! Right now, I know it will be a blessing in disguise to step away for a little time and work out exactly where to next.

This community is my powerhouse and your continued support means the world to me. I will continue to share mini hOOp masterpieces. I am not going anywhere. I am just stepping back for a little time to look at lots of different options to move forward.

Big hOOpie love, in a mini hOOp kinda way!
Smiles, Son 🤗

P.S. Although I am feeling up, down and all around right now, I know I will get back on track, and I'll be stronger and better for it. 💪

About

I.LOVE.EMBROIDERY

My passion for the craft of embroidery begins BEFORE the very first stitch. I love the feeling of stretching the fabric onto the hoop and seeing a blank canvas ready for a little masterpiece, choosing floss and rearranging it on my table to get the best combinations, visualising which stitches will work best and then … it is the sound of the needle piercing the fabric … PURE BLISS!

In my eyes embroidery is the new black AND it is addictive … yes indeedy! It can be rewarding and meditative and it can simply, make you smile all over. My love for this beautiful craft is ENORMOUS and is the foundation of my little biz. I want anyone and everyone who is keen to start stitching.

When I began stitching again in 2011, I found myself dreaming about the possibilities of embroidered designs. The main idea that continually circulated in my mind was that of a tiny embroidery hoop. Eventually, it took over and I couldn’t stop thinking about it. Finally the thought popped out of my head and my husband heard it … “I can help make that happen babe” he said. That was the beginning …

Together my husband and I drew up designs and went back and forth until we were 100% happy. It was imperative that the wood was top notch, the design perfect and the quality was tip top 100% the BEST! I think we have done it. We now spend many nights sanding, drilling and constructing each one. It is definitely a labour of love.

My custom family portraits, for the wall, can now be worn as a pendant or brooch framed by my miniature embroidery hoop. The best part … everyone can enjoy my mini hoops for their own little, stitchy masterpieces. It seems my little plan is beginning to take shape. I have created a Starter Kit that takes it right back to basics, so the stitcher can begin with confidence and also have a giggle along the way.

I have big plans for DANDELYNE… and it all begins with tiny steps and tiny things. Little by little I hope embroidery will be A HUGE part of many people’s lives.
