    Hi Just wanted to thank you for sharing. I was not aware of Laura Wheeler before. I am a quilter and have a kitchen & bath design business so quilting is my addiction. I am always so happy meeting and sharing with other quilters, they are so giving.
    I will look at more Laura Wheeler, thanks again

    I have just discovered Fiber Fantasies and was wondering if you have a cross stitch pattern from a Crinoline Lady / Southern Belle. I am going mad trying to find one. Thanks, Cheryl

    I have some of the southern bells that are silver in colour for transfer. Does anyone know if I should be worried about lead? And what year is this from? I only have the postage amount to go by. Thank you
