New Collections and Lots of changes coming to my current floss inventory

I have a lot of new floss collections in the works, as usual! The dye pot will be busy all of July dyeing beautiful colors for these new sets. Two sets have been dyed and will be going out to be carded next week.
Here are a few in the works:

Southern Appalachian Wildflowers
Let Me Call You Sweetheart
Farmhouse Memories
Primitive Shades of Browntones
The Olde Spinning Wheel
Penny Candy Collection

And I have a few more I have been thinking about takes a while to pick colors and names.  I think Texas Wildflowers will be later this summer. There is a huge assortment to choose from.
One more that was mentioned was Cactus Flowers....I looked at the online types of cactus flowers and was shocked at how bright and vast the varieties are. And I have a few more collection in mind so you will be in store for lots of new floss all summer. When each collection is available I will be taking orders (preorders at any time) and there will be  give-aways.

I have lots of changes coming to my current floss inventory, primarily the singles I have in stock. Not the Ultimate Collection, that will remain the same.

The 1840 and 1795 singles from those collections will be removed from the ebay inventory and put into the grab bag assortment I have listed. I will include all of the other singles I have currently listed. That's about 90 colors in all. If you need any of them before I remove them be sure to let me know.
It's time for new

I will be listing singles from the Limited Edition monthly sets and the Primitive Limited Edition sets. So if you wanted more of a color that you received in the floss club it will be listed. I had a lot of extras of most of the colors and I wanted to clear out my old singles and refresh the store inventory. A lot of you purchased extra singles after you received your monthly club selections and I thought I would give others, who did not join a club, a chance to purchase a few of the colors.

The advantage to belonging to the club is to receive one free skein each month. A free 20 yard skein is a nice savings and pays for your postage.

I think that is all of the news for this week! I will be dyeing floss all weekend and then printing, cutting and drilling the cards. All to bring you beautiful floss collections.

Have a nice weekend.

Updates for The Floss Clubs, please read

I have a couple updates for the Floss Clubs. First I want to thank the new members.......I love sharing my floss with all of you.

If you joined in January for 6 months, please update and let me know if you want to extend your membership. I send auto invoices on the 1st of each month and mail before the 5th.

If you would like to join, here are the current options:
Limited Editions or Primitive Editions is taking new members. The Ultimate Floss Club is full. Due to the large number of skeins in this collection, it takes 12-18 months to get the complete collection.

Thank you for joining the floss clubs. The response was fantastic and it is always nice to meet new members. If you would like to join, you can email and join at any time during the month.

Have a nice Father's Day

I hope everyone has a nice Father's Day. Some of us have lost our Fathers.....mine passed away 20 years ago.  But I have  been blessed with grandsons and I get to help them celebrate today with their dad......we always have fun celebrating holidays together. The best part of helping to raise this second family.....even if I am the only girl in a house full of guys! LOL  But having them here with us for the last 16 years has been wonderful.

I will work a bit this morning as there is always a lot to do with this business. I will box floss that is going out to be carded. Some collections and some singles.....always so much floss to card.
Today the dye pot will rest but starting tomorrow it will be going every day, I have several new collections in mind and I think you are going to like them. I will show them to you after they are carded (if I can wait that long....I usually give in) and of course we will give some away. We ALWAYS give some away!

Have a nice day and thanks for stopping by!
