We are really excited to welcome another great sponsor
to The Cafe ...PINK PERSIMMON\
Pink Persimmon is a clear stamp company owned by sisters Darcy McNairy and Judi Andersen.  "We love stamping and crafting together.  It all started with our very creative Grandma Lottie who helped foster a love of all types of needlework and crafts.  Time spent together with our Grandma is something that we both remember clearly, sitting by her side as she stitched on linen towels, or made adorable felt Christmas ornaments."  Judi is the creative director for Pink Persimmon and she brings a fun vintage style to her stamp designs.  Darcy runs the business side, so they make a great team together.   All their stamps are made in the USA with a high quality clear photopolymer material.  You will love the the quality of these stamps.  See all their stamp designs at their website

We share something in common with Pink Persimmon...
 Denise January!
She serves on their DT as well.
