Does anyone know if this company still exists?  I've been googling it
and find a lot of references to their old stitchery kits but nothing
providing a current contact.

I'm trying to track down some of their threads from an old kit in order
to finish the piece.  It's a Jiffy Stitchery kit called Hummingbird and
Azaleas.

Thanks kindly.

Cheers,

I happened to be in Michael's this morning and saw a couple of kits marked
Sunset.  IIRC Sunset was the company that put out Jiffy Kits.

   These Sunset Kits were from Dimensions.  Maybe Dimensions bought Jiffy
and if you get in touch with Dimensions they could give you some help with
your threads.

I hope this helps.

Jan had written this in response to
http://www.sewgirls.com/needlework/Re-Sunset-Designs-42050-.htm  :
Laury - If you haven't already found them, Jiffy (Sunset Designs) was in
Reading PA and it was affiliated with Dimensions.  Dimensions is at
www.dimensions-crafts.com and they say they can provide additional thread
for projects.  Their current website doesn't mention Jiffy or Sunset
Designs but they may be able to help.  Good luck!

Re: Sunset Designs


Hi, Barbara,

Thanks for the link, but unfortunately this isn't the kit I'm working
on.  I've scanned the photo into the album called Pending Projects on my
online album: http://polgara.shutterfly.com/ .

Thanks for checking and thanks for the heads up.

Cheers,

Laury

I would like to but it's half finished and I don't want to have to undo
and redo it!!  :->  It also matches two other projects so I want to have
them all alike -- I like the symmetry.  In any other case I would do
exactly what you've suggested.

I took a look at your works, Mirjam, and they are very unique and
creative.  I always enjoy seeing other people's creations.

I once was in the middle of a sweater and decided to knit a matching
skirt =3D needed same wool , Alas , even looking and phonong all wool
shop in the area ,,,  didn`t find enough wool ,,,,Thus i ripped only
the sleeves of the sweater which got some added other color [ps i
usually knit without seams , thaus it is some work ,,,, mooved part of
that colour to the skirt ,,,
Of course in a cat picture this isn`t the same ,,,, but maybe if
change the colour slightly , [as close as you can find it to the
original , and than after finnishing , take the `new` color and add
some `hairs ` here and there amongst the `Old color`, it will be ok ,,
after all cats in anture aren`t that perfect with their hair
colors !!!
Thank you for looking at my site and the compliment.
Alas works that haven`t been exhibitioned aren`t on the site.

no longer  sunset designs.It is a fitness club.
Maybe you can take your art word to the local craft store and see if you
can fine a close match.
Just think Mother changes it colors all the time. Maybe take the new
color that you purchase and put it in the art work someplace you have
already done. Introduce it and continue on.

Re: Sunset Designs


Laury, did you ever do anything with that half done cat I sent you?
Just curious.

No, I'm afraid it's still in my UFO box.  First I need to splice in
another piece of canvas and track down the pattern and the materials.
Can you tell me the name of the designer?

Thanks kindly.
