http://www.cajunstitchery.com/ and click on "gallery." I sent an email to this effect to several of our customers, suggesting that since Christmas is approaching, they might want to look at the gallery to get ideas for Christmas presents. Immediately, 2 orders came through. Both wanted things in the gallery that are handmade. Please understand that all of our handmade items are sold via our Etsy store at http://www.cajunstitchery.etsy.com/. The main Cajun Stitchery does embroidery on ready made items. Goto www.companycasuals.com/cajunstitchery to see some of the ready made items that we have available. The obvious reason is because it is time consuming to make things. I love doing it, don't get me wrong. Even a simple handkerchief or napkin takes time to make and that is before any embroidery is applied. If I accepted orders for handmade items, the price would be outrageous and the time required to fill the order would be preposterous. But I do love making things, in my own time, without any boundaries. Those are the things that go into our Etsy shop. They are pure creativity. They are new techniques and things I just want to try out. Feel free to give me ideas and suggestions for handmade items. I may make them and put them in our Etsy shop. If it's handmade by Cajun Stitchery, please purchase the item from our Etsy store.
C'est tout, mes amis!
