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.

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

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.

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.
