Heads up, Ladies! Jan just shared a link to an Ebay auction of Suzanne Hinshaw’s Charming Embellishments shadow work by machine embroidery collection. The opening bid is $100.
The description reads: Wow – hard to find Suzanne Hinshaw’s Shadow work by machine. Charming embellishments. New in package, I opened it to photo for listing. It states that it is for Husqvarna Viking machines. Not sure if the format works on other machines. Stated on floppy disk Hus/.Shv format Designer One.
This great package includes the floppy disk, book, and placement guides. It has 25 shadow work by machine designs. Cherries, poppies, Happy Birthday and Holiday Christmas and Hanukkah. Copyright 2000.
Free Priority shipping for winning bidder.
But around 2003 at Martha Pullen’s School of Art Fashion in Huntsville, I helped Suzanne in her booth at the teacher selling night. The price of each collection was $125.
Designs from this set were used on a Christmas collar for my granddaughter. Several of the other designs were used for more projects.
If you’ve been looking for any Hinshaw designs, this is one opportunity. But be cautious. I won the Ebay auction for the only collection I do not have, her Ladies and Babies collection. It was a plagerized copy that soneone had color sorted so it wouldn’t work. A full refund was given.
The fact that this set comes with the book and templates makes it seem legitimate.
So there you have it. I know nothing more about this auction than the description I have copied and pasted so you won’t find Janice Ferguson’s Good Sewing Stamp of Approval. I hope one of you ends up with this great Hinshaw collection.
Thanks, Jan, for letting us know about this.
