What's going on out at the fairgrounds this weekend...(updated Friday night)
I'm trying to sit down here at the computer (between dye baths) and put on a few new additions that I'm taking to the shop this weekend...I'll be updating this along probably all afternoon at the speed I seem to be going today! So bear with me!
Our Legacy 2011 Calendars came in...well, two of them anyway...Simply Shaker by Karen Cruden and Folk Art by David. I did not order a ton of these since we have to close for October. Both have great pictures (12 different ones in all)...$14.95 each (WOW discount applies)
We also got these two calendar styles in pocket calendars as well. Great to throw in your purse or computer bag...$6.95 each...(the picture makes them look big, but they are a nice small size)
And don't forget about the Pure and Simple Calendars...$19.95...there are a few left!(Picture of it in the previous blog.)
We were able to get more of those really cool halloween mercury bead garlands back in. This is it for them! Very old looking in alternating black, silver and orange beads. Perfect for your halloween feather tree or entwined in a garland. 9' long...$7.95 each
For all you wool dyers out there (or if you just need good neutral textures to add to your stash!), I've made some "dyer's bundles"...consisting of 5 - 1/4 yard pieces of some great textures (and 1 solid). You get 1 1/4 total yards of wool for $24.95...wow girls, don't forget your discount! (There's a limited number of these available this weekend..if you need one held, let me know!)
Attn WOW GIRLS!!
The September wool treat will be at the shop for the next two weekends for you to come by and pick up (if you live in the area). There will also be some of the August wool treats there as well if you didn't pick yours up. For those of yall that live far away or can't make it in, I'll be shipping your treats out after we close for the State Fair. So don't panic...it's all coming! The September color is called "Garland Green"...great for all your upcoming fall and winter projects!
Attn Settler's Pride BOM Girls
There will not be a kit for September (since I've run a bit behind with the August kit!) For the girls who are pretty well caught up, you'll have to get your top pieced together before the next 3 blocks come out or you won't be able to go any further. The next kit will be the laurel wreath that goes around the center house block and will ship out in October. If you have any questions, just send me a quick email!
Three new patterns are coming in this weekend...more fun stuff for the holidays!!
Jack the Cat Mat..$5.95 pattern price (putting kits together!)
Hootie...$8.95 pattern price (putting kits together!)
"JOY" Trio of pillows...$8.95 pattern price (kits coming!)
I'm trying to get the kits on these three new patterns done..hopefully this weekend...but definitely next weekend! The wools have been dyed and will also be at the shop in case the kits don't get all cut and packaged!
1/2 and 1/4 yard cuts of washed black wool will be back in stock! $10 each for the 1/2 yard pieces and $5 each for the fat quarters. If you need more, I have it on the bolt as well!
Shawn found some fun die-cut 40's-50's skeletons and cats for halloween...those will be coming into the shop...cute vintage ones to add to a halloween collection at a cheap price...$10 each....
