VEAC, Issue #1 -- Where's Your Whisk Broom?
January 06, 2006

Welcome to the FIRST VEAC newsletter

Here is Victorian Embroidery and Craft's first newsletter. I am so excited to be able to bring this to you. Just as a reminder: This e-zine will be published monthly with publication due out the first week of every month. Occasionally you may hear from me more often but only if there is something time sensitive for you to take action on if you desire.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for subscribing. I would also like to send a special thanks to those who e-mailed me with their kind words, comments and suggestions. I want this site to be one of a family where everyone feels free to contribute.

I hope to have a blog started shortly. The blog will list any additions to the site immediately. Those who choose not to receive the blog will receive a list of additions with the monthly e-zine. The purpose of the blog is to keep you from receiving multiple emails a month with site updates, overfilling your mailbox.

What's New!

A new item has been added to the site. There now is a Craft site with something in it! LOL. It seemed a long time in the making but I finally was able to get something there. I will, of course, be adding many, many other crafts as time permits. It has been slow going, but as with anything, the more I do it, the faster I get. There should beat least one new craft item per month (as well as new embroidery and other needlework instructions).

This month's craft is a Whisk Broom Holder. Yes, you read right! In my research I learned that whisk brooms were used everyday, particularly when dressing. They were used to brush lint and dirt off of clothing. You can click here Victorian Crafts to find the link to this particular craft. Who would have thought that item I throw under the sink (I think that's were it is) could be a thing of beauty? Thanks to Victorian ladies, it can be.

Please feel free to contact me with any comments, suggestions, or requests. If you are interested in a particular item, let me know. I'll see what I can find for you. Also, if you have expertise in any Victorian needlecrafts or general Victorian crafts and would like to share, by all means, let me know. I would be glad to add a "Guest Author" or maybe "Subscriber Craft Submission" section to the site. Of course, your submission would be attributed to you as the author or designer.

Thank you again for subscribing.

Warmly,

Mary
