What's new at L*K? Two REALLY SPECIAL Limited Edition kits!
We brainstormed before our annual Nashville Market, trying to think up something unique and totally fun for our customers! We decided to do some really inclusive, "full-service" kits, with all sorts of extra goodies included. Linda started designing and shopping for cool finishing fabrics and fun embellishments. Check out the results below!
K67 Song of Spring Limited Edition Kit
We could have called this design "bunnies and birds"! Lots of our favorite spring-motifs and lovely muted colors combine for a real spring treat.
K68 Do Your Best Limited Edition Kit
Taken from a longer sampler verse, we love the simple phrase "Do Your Best". I remember my Mom telling me this, and me (repeating my Mom!) giving my daughters this timeless advice. So simple, yet so meaningful and appropriate.
New for 2014... our first seasonal Flip-its ever!
We used a lot of our favorite sampler motifs and themes on this series, and each one comes with 3 tiny buttons. It's our smallest Flip-it series ever, with 4 seasonal parts. If you're ready for a breath of spring and summer, check the details below!
