Hello fellow rug hookers!
Julie Stamper here, and it’s been a while since I’ve posted. Lots of changes have happened at Bee Line Art Tools, so here’s a quick recap of what the busy bees have been up to!
In August, I left Bee Line Art Tools for another job opportunity in our community, but I continue to hook in my free time. Shari Soltow, who has been in charge of customer service and helping me with everything for the past few years, took over as Customer Service Supervisor for Bee Line Art Tools and is now hooking! Yay!
Isn't she adorable!? Look at the rug she started!
Since Shari and I started together when Bee Line took over Townsend Industries’ rug hooking business, she’s been involved from the beginning, and knows the equipment inside and out. She has spoken to many of you on the phone and through e-mail, and she attended the XXX Hook-in in Minnesota a couple of years ago and met a number of people in the Minnesota rug hooking community. She is very familiar with the ins and outs of both the cutting equipment and the frames, and can help you with any questions you may have about your Bee Line Art Tools Equipment.
While I’m busy with my new position and my family, I still keep in touch with my friends at Bee Line, so you may occasionally see a blog post or something on facebook or twitter or pinterest from me on behalf of Bee Line, but Shari is your go-to gal on all things cutter.
I’m still working on my Grannie’s Flower Garden rug – at Sauder I basically pulled all the wool out and started over, so hopefully over holiday break I’ll get a chance to do some hooking and can post progress pictures with my new colors!
Hopefully you’ve all had a terrific year, and from the Bee Line family to yours, Happy Holidays!
