Hi, I'm looking for either the kit or even just the chart for a Janlynn kit from 1989, #04-729. I contacted Janlynn, but of course they no longer have it. It is 4 oval pictures depicting the 4 different seasons, landscapes with a building. If anyone knows where I can find it, I'd appreciate it!

    Janlynn licensed 'kitting rights' to a lot of designs that were originally issued as charts from other designers and/or publishers. John Sloane's seasonal houses - which would be from the right timeframe - come first to mind. I have the original chart but I do know that these were also kitted by another mfg. Judith Kirby also has a nice book from the same timeframe of 4-season farmhouses but I don't know if it was ever kitted.

    Do you have any more info that would help to narrow this down? If you would like to see a picture of the Sloane or Kirby charts, I can post it to an online photo album for you. Go to top

      Hi, thanks for the reply! The kit had 4 gold frames, but they were on the small size, I think finished size would be about 3 x 4 inches. I don't remember a designer name. I know the summer one had a lighthouse in it, winter was a mill or log cabin, autumn I think had a church, and spring I don't remember, maybe a barn? Or a covered bridge? They all of course had foliage particular to the season, and I think mountains in the background.

      I'm really just looking for some nice but smallish seasonal charts, so I wouldn't mind seeing the photos you mentioned, if they are not the same, maybe they would work as well and be easier to find. Thanks for your help! Go to top
