Hey, Stitchers! Long time no talk. Been busy doing a little of this and a little of that and stitching. Time once again has gotten away from me.
We are having CHRISTMAS IN JULY in the shoppe. It starts TODAY and runs through SATURDAY AUGUST 1. You do realize how fast this holiday is approaching, don't you? I always heard how time passes faster when you get older, but I'm beginning to think it's utterly ridiculous how fast time is passing.
CHRISTMAS IN JULY offers good savings -- you'll get 25% off all Christmas charts in stock and 15% off fabric purchased to do any of the Christmas charts you buy. You'll receive a 15% discount on all Fall and Halloween charts as that season is also fast approaching.
Blackbird Designs has their monthly stocking charts out up to July. The August chart should be arriving in a couple of weeks along with a newly announced release - a Halloween Stocking Book with 13 Halloween stocking charts. They use 3 R&R fabrics and Weeks Dye Works, Gentle Art Sampler Threads and Crescent Colours to stitch the designs. We've contacted our distributors to get automatic delivery of the chart and supplies so we don't miss out on anything that's needed.
We are accepting pre-orders for the chart and any or all of the supplies. I have a feeling that once my initial order is gone, it may take time to get restocks that may be needed. Their last Halloween book was a big success and I think this one will be, too.
JBW has new ornament charts out and we have them. She also has a hat shopping chart to accompany her previously released shoe shopping chart. This would also work for anyone who's a Red Hat member, just change some colors.
Well, gotta go. Some charts need pricing and threads need twisting . There's always something to do in the shop and unfortunately it's not stitching. Don't forget to check out www.hoffmandis.com and www.nordencrafts.com for new releases. (We can order anything you see on these websites.)
