Carolyn Pearce Strawberry Fayre heart etui 4: urgent ruler announcement!!!

The Carolyn Pearce Strawberry Fayre etui requires a mother of pearl ruler for one of the pockets inside the etui. These mother of pearl rulers are getting so hard to find though – several people have given me website details where they believe there is still stock of them left….only to find that the shops have none left, or the shop itself has closed down, and so on.

EDIT – This one sold within 10 minutes of me posting this, sorry! BUT….I have found ONE shop that has JUST ONE LEFT – so, if you’re quick, whoever can contact them first, gets it!!!  (Obviously, I’ve already bought mine  🙂  )  It costs 10 US dollars, plus shipping.

So, contact Penny at My Special Stitches for what appears to be the last mother of pearl ruler in the world!

EDIT: THIS ONE FROM MY SPECIAL STITCHES HAS NOW SOLD.   See in comments for links to any other places that people may have found  🙂

    1. Sorry – they’ve all gone screwy today – WordPress is playing up, and I’ve had to retrieve the posts themselves, scrambling the comments :-((( I’ve retrieved them as one long list, which I’ll post below.

        If you’re not dead set on this being a ruler, but something that is mother of pearl that is about the same size and shape, take a look at MOP Chinese gaming counters. They are abundant on ebay and etsy, and look like they would fit the opening nicely.

        Thanks for the link, but that shop closed down in 2016, but their pages are still findable online 😦

  1. Stitchvillle USA has one left. Just saw it as I left the shop this afternoon. They will be open again on Monday.
