Announcing "ACCOUTREMENT DESIGNS" - a new accessory business

ac·cou·ter·ment or ac·cou·tre·ment - əˈko͞otərmənt - a noun meaning - something that is not necessary in itself but adds to the convenience or performance of the main piece of equipment.

Accoutrement Designs is a new accessory business focused on the needleart industry. Currently offering scissor fobs and magnets for holidays, special events and interest. For that extra touch to fit your mood, project or holiday.  A popular idea is to use the magnets as pins.  Fobs can be attached to just about anything you want to identify as your own.

My story:
In 2007 I got an idea to make scissor fobs as gifts for friends.  This led to many fobs marking holidays, trips, milestones...for our scissors, threaders, needlepoint projects and project bags.  They have become much admired and desired and I was encouraged to make them available to others.  "Fob Friends" was created and led to "Mag Friends" and the creation of Accoutrement Designs.

This blog was created to help facilitate the new "grapevine" or "word of mouth" that the internet has created for our immediate "need to know" gratification.  I soon hope this blog will be linked to the website. Still a work in progress (WIP). I will be posting pictures of products available through your local needlearts shop (LNS) and other retail stores that will be carrying the "Accoutrement Designs" line.  Products are currently available wholesale only and a list of retailers will be provided.  If your LNS or retailer is not currently carrying our products, please introduce them to us.

May you experience the wonderment of friends.  If you receive one of our products as a gift, then you are a true friend.
