"I doubt that you will read (let alone respond to) this message, but I will give it a final try anyway. Years ago, I have send you a message asking whether it was possible to buy one of the plush tea cups from you, since I, unfortunately, always missed the moments on which you sold them. Unfortunately, you never replied. Nevertheless, I would still, after all those years, like to purchase one of those tea cups from you. From what I understood from your post, (I presume) you will never create new plushies again, but I was wondering if you made a few plush tea cups for this Union Handmade show that you would be willing to sell? Please reply via e-mail, if you would like to respond. Thank you in advance."
You have no idea how many people have asked me for a tea cup. So many that I couldn't have possibly replied to everyone that asked. I also have not been using my "teresa at sewing stars dot com" email in ages now.
That said, I would have emailed you but there is no email available in your note. :(
Dear everyone else who commented,
Wow. I mean, WOW. <_< I am so surprised by your lovely and heartwarming comments! I guess I am still suffering from a broken heart when it comes to Sewing Stars. If this were an ex-boyfriend, all my pictures would be locked away in a box. Instead, I just hide away and all my plushies are stowed away in a container in the closet.
I am working on making the booklet of all my most popular patterns and will self publish in order to keep costs down. I also have about 50 copies of the first booklet and 100 or so of the second one in my studio closet as well. When the time comes, all three will be made available for purchase. I will take preorders as you all suggested. That time will most likely be around September, since I am rewriting and polishing the patterns from the rejected book deal to use in the last booklet as well as adding some other patterns I have never done directions for before.
I wish things had been different for me... But they are what they are. I will give what's left in me for a last Sewing Stars hurrah, though.
