I LOVE Christmas! Thank you for joining in the celebration for my Christmas in July give-aways.  I appreciate all of you and thank you for supporting my business. It is my pleasure to share with you and give back. Remember.....All you can take with you is that which you've given away!

We have lots of winners today!!!!
Lets start with the first give-away which was a custom box of your favorite colors. There were two names drawn.
stoker stitches and Carolyn Zook. Congratulations! Please send me an email with your address and favorite colors.

Next we had the linen or aida give-away. 1/2 yard of stitching happiness goes to Christina Marie in NM who follows by email. Congratulations!

When you are finished with the club simply send me an email to be removed. The first name drawn was someone who had not paid the club invoices for several months and had to be disqualified. The second name drawn was Jacqueline Campbell. Congratulations!

Last of all we have the Surprise Package of 30 skeins! The lucky name drawn was Roger Morales. Congratulations!

Thank you for sharing my July celebration of Christmas and the 4th of July. It was lots of fun!

I will have another give-away next week. All the gifts will be sent out this week. Be sure to send me your address if your name was drawn.

I will be dyeing a new all blue collection and all green collection later this month. I will have lots of sets available and remember you can preorder with payment.

Have a great week!

Severe storm and our power is out

Due to a severe storm today we are without power. Trees and power lines down all over our road. We were very lucky. Using our generators and I will have email access.

I packed over 200 orders and they went out today but there will be  a delay in the club shipments for the next few days,

Great news for club members with the DMC price hike

DMC is having a huge price increase for the wholesale cones only, coming soon. I always do my best to help all of my customers save money and I will keep the current pricing for the club members and still offer the free skein. Nothing will change there.
DMC also changed their minimum from $1,000 to $10,000 per order for best shipping prices. These increases are huge this year.

The collections will increase from the current price of $29.99 to $33. I am already increasing the Ebay set prices as I was going to do that any ways with their high fees. Buying direct is the best way to go right now as I will wait to increase the direct sale prices until next month.

I will also increase the individual skein price shortly....probably to $2.75 each in September. All individual skein orders placed before September 1st will be $2.45 prices. If you have been waiting to order...now is the time to do it.

Always doing my best to bring you the best value for your money.

God Bless America new pattern and chart

My newest chart is one I adapted from my God Bless America pattern I did years ago for a perforated paper kit. My own copyright protected design.
This one is charted for cross stitch....cover shows pattern on linen with the stitching program. I will need to send mine out to a model stitcher as I am simply swamped this summer with dyeing floss.
The design is motto size on 14 or 28ct and will fit most antique frames...or the frame you select. 18.6" x 6.4".
16ct is 16.3" x 5.6"
18ct is 14.5" x 5.0
Charted for DMC but you could substitute my America the Beautiful floss for most of the chart. Add a little green and brown and you'd be all set.

I will give a couple  charts away on the 4th for the give-away. I will list the chart in the Ebay store and they are available direct from me. $9.99 plus postage.
My charts include the chart cover, pattern information page for the above listed 3 fabric counts, chart pages are 2 sets. One set of symbols pages and one set of color block pages so you can use the chart type you prefer.

I love this country...and it really was blessed!

Favorite Rose Collection and 2 free skeins, limited quantity available

I previously had a Favorite Rose Collection for sale....and I kept 30 sets to have a special sale with two extra free skeins included.
If you love Red and Roses...you will love this set. 12 skeins plus 2 free skeins and they will sell out quickly so let me know as soon as you can if you would like one. nbelgian@aol.com
The free skeins are a dark green and the Deep Red Texas Rose. Perfect for stitching roses, with the beautiful greens for stems and even the pink/white rose. The set is $29.99 plus postage. Gift boxes available but it adds more to the postal cost.

I'm not going to do a give-away for this set simply because after it is posted all over the internet they will sell out too quickly and I like to give my regular customers first chance.

I am still working on the next collection of More Treasures from the Attic Trunk and also dyeing a second dye lot of America the Beautiful that is just sold out today. Stay tuned for give-aways on those collections.

Thank you for stopping by.

Happy Mother's Day!

I want to wish all of you a very Happy Mother's Day. To celebrate our Mothers everywhere. Some are in heaven......we remember the loving time we had to share with them. Some are far away.....we miss them and wish we could be together. But we celebrate all they did for us and cherish them.
To one who bears the sweetest name,
And adds a luster to the same,
Long life to her, for there's no other,
Who takes the place of my dear Mother.
I am one of the luckiest people in the world because I still have my Mother who turned 96 last month. We talk for at least a half hour each day....she patiently waits by the phone for me at 9 every morning. I cherish each day that I have with her.

I am taking the day off to be with my son and grandsons....the best guys in the world.

I hope all of you have a wonderful day!
                               Love,

Updates

The last orders of Mother's Flower Garden will ship tomorrow. I still have sets available if you'd like one. $29.00 plus postage nbelgian@aol.com
Heirloom Peony, Clematis, Hollyhock, Sweet Pea, Snapdragon, Butterfly Bush, Phlox, Mother's Favorite Petunia, Hibiscus, Primrose, Tea Rose and Royal Tulip.
 
The linen we were waiting for that was on back order arrived Friday and we worked fast and furious to get the last orders processed. The good news is that we have a 6 month supply on
most of the counts now. May linen will be dyed this week and hopefully all linen and floss orders will go out together the middle of the month. We know you are anxious to get your shipments.
 
There is always a glitch with Paypal....I see a few of the invoices went out this morning that were not supposed to go out until the 1st. Just ignore them until the 1st!  And we had trouble with printing labels on Paypal for several days so when they quit working we switched to the other mailing service.
 
If you have questions you can email me at any time. Posting comments here I might not get to for a while so please email requests/questions. nbelgian@aol.com
If you get a reply from Tom, that is my son and my business partner. He does quite a bit of the work with me now.
 
Thank you

A winner today and Floss Collections available

I have been swamped with emails asking what collections are still available. They are posted on the side of the blog. Some wonderful stitchers on Flosstube have been showing the America the Beautiful and the 3 skein Primitive Patriotic set......yes they are still available.

The Mother's Flower Garden will be shipping later this month and you can order it now and I am offering a free skein for the first 100 sets instead of 50 as I carded more of the bonus skein.

We have a winner for the last set of the Treasures in the Attic Trunk. I will dye a similar set soon......

The lucky winner is Robbin846. Congratulations! Please send me an email with your address. nbelgian@aol.com

I love to pick names for floss.....I am already thinking of new names for more treasures in the attic trunk! Stay tuned...there is always a new floss collection around here!

Update on the floss club: all floss orders (floss and linen ship later in the week) will be shipped by tomorrow. The last few labels are being printed as the internet was on and off all day yesterday.

One more note.....when you are finished with the floss or linen clubs please send me an email so I can remove you from the recurring invoices. You must be a member in good standing to enter all the give-aways.

Thank you and have a great Sunday!

Floss Club shipments

In case you missed the earlier post, the floss club now ships by the 15th of each month. I have had several of you ask when they will ship.....it just takes a tremendous amount of time to pack over 500 orders so please be patient. I will start with shipping labels today and tomorrow.

I want to thank all of you who understand the time it takes to put these orders together. As you know...or if you are new to my floss...I am wholesale to the public. Simply to save you money. I get requests all the time from shops to carry my floss and I simply say no thank you. I sell direct to my stitching customers so they get the great savings of buying floss for almost 1/4 the price of some of the other over dyed companies.

The linen and floss combo orders will ship by the 25th this month. They will go out earlier next month.

Thank you for your business and your patience. Both are greatly appreciated.

Treasures in the Attic Trunk give-away, enter now

I have some "treasure" to give away today..... and I think you will like this one if you missed out the first time around.
This set is sold out.

I will dye a new set of treasure soon....but here was the first collection of Treasures in the Attic Trunk:
I love antiques. I love old trunks and I have a nice collection of them. And the treasures that you put in these trunks are from a life time of memories. Dried flowers, wedding treasures, baby clothes, etc. So I put together a nice collection of memories. And I dyed them beautiful colors. Soft, antique looking, perfect for samplers, primitives, flowers, etc....and here they are:
Some of the color names are: 1904 World's Fair, Wedding Quilt, Grandmother's Violets, Dolly's Dress, Garden Gate, School Sweethearts, Love's Promise, Summer Jasmine, etc.
Memories and treasures one would store in the attic trunk.

I will give away one set and I have 4 sets for sale. I know they will sell fast so contact me if you would like one.

Invoices for April and Paypal again....

I get notices from Paypal when my recurring invoices go out...and I received almost 30 notices this morning for invoices that should go out on the 1st.....Paypal's response was that because the last day of the month is on the weekend they sent them out now. So I said....they are not supposed to go out until the 1st. Monday. She had no clue......as usual....so remember that even if they mess up and send them early they are not due until the 1st or the 2nd as half of them go out on the 2nd. If you need to pay on another day that is later than the 7th please let me know.

I am carding the America the Beautiful floss and shipments will start tomorrow and go through Monday. I am a bit slower these days with this bad hip that is non-stop pain if I sit, stand or walk. As I have said before, Old Ain't for Sissies!

If you would like one of these sets they are still available. I will dye a second and third dye lot with this collection. :))
Email me with any questions please...I don't get to the blog page as often as I would like. I am up to my ears in floss! LOL

Have a great day.

I have had a lot of requests for single color sets and I will be working on them all year. I doubt the dye pot will get a rest for quite some time.

Back to work....I sent my guys to Indiana to pick up an antique sewing cabinet so I have all day to keep busy...busy...busy!
Have a nice day....thanks for stopping by.

Changes in Club shipping dates

I want to thank everyone in the floss and linen clubs....this is a huge success and I appreciate all of you.

I need to expand the shipping dates for all of these orders. So......
floss clubs will ship from the 3rd-15th of each month.

Linen and Aida (even if it has floss) will ship from the 15th-25th. I had over 120 extra linen orders this month and it takes time to process and dye the linen for you.

As one customer told me...she makes a payment and she gets a shipment each month and it doesn't matter which day. Sounds good to me. LOL

So please be patient with your orders....if you do not receive a shipment by the last day of the month then email me and I will check the package. You can always check tracking in Paypal on your orders.

Thank you!
Nancy
