Gift Box Sets for Christmas

After my post yesterday regarding the Gift Certificates I was flooded with mail for requests for gift boxes. I had some questions asked regarding custom sets......  I am more than happy to put together a custom set of colors for gift boxes but they have to be colors I already have dyed as time is running out for boxing sets.
I can do... lets say...a set of pinks to reds...yellow to oranges to browns....blues and purples, etc. I have done one color sets in the past and will do more next year. Greens, Browntones, etc. We can do boxes of 12 skeins or more if you want a larger collection. I will add a custom card for you with a message if you want me to ship direct to your friends. That's another option to save time. nbelgian@aol.com

I am dyeing the floss for the Kindred Stitcher and Primitive Stitcher this weekend. I will start carding them in a week and hope to have them finished by the end of the month. We are talking a carding marathon folks....these take time to card. I have hired a new gal to help but these still take time. There are 28,000 yards of floss in a collection that we put into 111 boxes! 240 yards to a box.

I had wanted to dye Primitive Dried Flowers before Christmas but I am not sure I can get that one done. I have a dozen new flower sets coming out this spring along with a dozen all one color sets.

Let me know if you have any questions regarding gift boxes or custom sets. I am always here to help with your holiday gift giving.
And you ALL know I love to play Santa!

Gift Certificates for the holidays

It's almost that special holiday time of the year....of course we celebrate all year long here at the Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe with gift giving. Sharing is the best part of life.

I have Gift Certificates available all year long. During the holiday season I usually have a Black Friday Special.....this year it is a discount on gift certificates. A $25 gift certificate is $22.50. A $50 gift certificate is $45. A $100 gift certificate is $90. This special will run through November so if you want one I suggest you get it as soon as possible. I limit this offer to 100 gift certificates.

To purchase a gift certificate you tell me the amount and then you will receive a Paypal invoice from me. Then I can send you the certificate in an email or a hard copy. Certificates are numbered for my reference. I can also send the certificate in an email for you as a gift.
Gift Certificates now available,any amount
Email with any questions. I also give Gift Certificates away during the holidays.

Be Ye Thankful Give-away, enter NOW!


It's almost that time of year here in the states......our traditional Thanksgiving on the 4th Thursday in November. The date this year is the 22nd and I am having my usual Be Ye Thankful give-away to celebrate. Since the original day was a celebration of the harvest....I like to celebrate a harvest of friends! And I am very thankful for each and every one of you.

I usually have one winner drawn for this give-away but since I have so many new followers, I will draw TWO names! Two lucky winners to receive a gift.

I thought I would put together a nice selection of goodies to surprise the lucky winners. So you will have to wait and see what it is! These surprises usually have a value of $50 or more as I like to include a nice selection. You can suggest what you would like...floss, fabric (linen or aida), charts, etc.....but first you have to tell me what you are thankful for!
 
 I am always thankful for many things....my wonderful family that surrounds me.....the blessings I have received...and the friends and followers I have met and that is the best part of this business. From all over the world I have met the nicest group of people that I enjoy chatting and sharing with.


The give-away will be on the 21st of November as I will be very busy on the holiday.

Floss and Linen club invoices

All of the floss and linen club invoices went out a few days ago. There were as couple, as usual, that don't go through the first time and I resent them. I have put everyone in the auto invoice system Paypal has just started and I hope this corrects any problems we have had. IF you did not get your invoice, please let me know. There were a couple messages from Paypal that inboxes were full.

Thank you for your patience with the invoices. Making sure hundreds of invoices are correct takes quite a while.

Stay tuned...I have my very favorite give-away next!!

Different colors for floss club shipments

With so many people in the floss clubs there are several different sets of floss that go out for each club. You might not get the same as someone else does. I am often asked why did my friend get different colors? Simply because there are different sets that go out for the same club. You may have one of four sets for limited editions or primitives.

I hope this helps. I answer a lot of emails with those questions.

Nancy

So many new collections!

When life throws you a curve ball you better get a new mitt and be ready to catch it! Life has gotten pretty hectic around here and way too much work for one person. I have hired two full time employees to start with me in September and I am thrilled to have the help. We should be able to have all orders out by the 7th of each month from now on. It takes two days just to send out invoices...two days to print shipping labels and 2-3 days pack orders. And I want to thank all the new club members....I am so thankful for all of you.

New floss collections coming soon! Aside from dyeing 48 new colors for the clubs each month I am in the process of dyeing and carding new collections. The Bewitched Collection (all grays and variegated shades of gray), The Victorian Christmas Collection, Return to Sleepy Hollow, The Kindred Spirits Collection, The Primitive Stitching Collection (or shall we call it the Primitive Stitcher?), etc. The list goes on and on. I hope to have 15-20 new collections by Christmas!
I will start next week showing two collections a week and then they will be available to purchase. I have quite a few pre-orders already as the collections sell out quickly. I will do 111 boxes of each collection and 222 of the Victorian Christmas. I will show the colors when they are ready for each collection. Lots of variations in each color. And we will do a give-away for a free box for each collection so stay tuned.

I will try to find time to post more often. And I really want to list linen colors on the side of the blog for stock colors I will carry. The Winter Sky, a light mottled gray, has been very popular for the Tis the Season SAL. And I always have the Antique Sampler light mottled tan....and I think I will name the Buttercream Eliza that I did for the Eliza Bell Cox SAL pieces. It was a very popular color.

So stay tuned. Lots coming your way very soon.

Linen club invoices go out today

The last of the linen club invoices will go out today. It has become necessary to add a third day to invoices. If you have not received your invoice for any of the three clubs by this evening then please send me an email.

I truly appreciate your business and all of the club members. This month I had the floss for the SAL and so many people added it to their club invoices. Or boxed sets, collections etc. I think I will have to ask that we start doing separate orders for these items as it has become too much paper work to add items to more than 50 orders. Pulling a few orders was easy enough.....but then it got crazy! lol   Such a great response for the SAL floss. I am almost sold out of the third dye lot! Not sure if I will dye a 4th.......I am thinking about it.

Have a great weekend. We will be doing a packing marathon with my guys helping me. The bulk of the floss club will go out Monday with the SAL orders. The remaining club orders with linen will go out Tuesday and Wednesday so I can get back to the dye pot on Wednesday. I will start with the Victorian Christmas Collection so stay tuned. Lots of collections coming soon.

If you like hand dyed linen....or Aida...you will like this give-away.

Lets get to the give-away!

One lucky winner will receive 1/2 yard, a $39 value from me, and I post world wide. YOUR choice of fabric count....neutral or colored.
I have 16 and 18ct Aida. Linen in 28, 32, 36, 40 and 46ct.

Announcements and Shipping begins today

Shipping begins today for all of the clubs and will continue through tomorrow. SO many orders are packed and ready for shipping labels.

A big thank you to all of the new club members and blog followers. So nice to have you with us. Be sure you sign up for each of the Christmas in July give-aways. Winners will be announced next week.

The floss packs for the Tis the Season SAL will be ready on the 15th and invoices will go out at that time. 9 skeins, 20 yards each, is $22 plus postage. I hope to have a picture later this week to show you the floss. I am having trouble uploading pictures to my computer.

I hope to start showing pictures of basic linen colors I have. I know a lot of you have seen the basic mottled cream, tan, sage, slate, etc.
When I get those done I will post on the side bar for stock colors. 28, 32, 36, 40 and 46ct linen. I also have 28ct evenweave.

Need floss for a special get together? I am dyeing floss for several people next week for special gatherings and promotions. My floss is $2.45 for my 20 yard skeins. I need 50 skeins per special color when ordering. If you just need a selection of floss then there are no minimum requirements. I am happy to work with you on your projects.

Have a great week. I will be up to my elbows in the dye pot! LOL

Her birthday is on the 16th and we all want to wish her a very Happy Birthday. And to all of you who have a July birthday......I hope you all have a very special birthday celebration.

New Floss Collections coming soon!

Lots of new floss collections coming soon! July will be filled with dyeing LOTS of floss and great new collections.

Some of my best sellers have been the Halloween/Sleepy Hollow and the Victorian (Burgundy, reds, golds, greens) Christmas. I will be doing a new collection for each of those. All new colors....perfect for holiday stitching. I will also have a new patriotic collection of our favorite red, white and blues. Lets add another Autumn collection......and the list goes on.
These will be dyed and carded in July and August.  Throw in a few flower collections......Then I will do a few special collections and end with a Spring/Easter collection of pastels. As I said, LOTS of floss! And there will be a give-away for a box of each collection as it becomes available.

I have been asked to dye the floss for another SAL, Tis the Season with the beautiful Cardinal. I will be dyeing those colors next week even though the SAL doesn't start until Labor Day. I will have pre-orders when the floss is done. We are still working out the floss requirements.

Lets not forget that Christmas in July will soon be here! I love the give-aways and being able to share with so many of you. It will be a fun filled celebration....mixed in the the 4th celebration....and some very nice gifts to give away. Don't miss it!

July 1st will be the announcement for the Birthday Club winner, floss club winners, and the 1st day of Christmas. To say I am busy is an understatement but I love every minute of it.

So stay tuned.......

Thanks for stopping by!
