Announcing the Hand dyed floss winners for today

Another fun day of drawing names...I truly wish I could send some to each and every one of you. What a postage bill that would be!
So it's time to announce todays winners:
Valerie Kalyani
Miss LindaLee

You each will receive 5 skeins (20 yards ea) of my hand dyed floss.
You need to email me....I truly don't have time to track you down, so please help me out.
I will need your address.
I am dyeing more floss this week...sounds like another give-away  real soon.
I must admit...my floss is just a side line for me. So many stitchers who bought my perforated paper motto kits liked the floss they asked to buy some separate. I started listing some and the rest is history.
Let me back up a bit...when I first started doing the kits I bought hand dyed floss wholesale from other companies. I paid $1.45 for 10 yards. I thought that was an outrageous price since I need to put $6-$8 in floss in each kit. So I bought cones from DMC and started dyeing my own. Piece of cake! Then I started selling it because customers requested it....and I was so mad that the other companies charged so much...that is why I sell it so cheap... so a lot of stitchers can have a nice floss selection at an affordable price. At $2 for 20 yards...I have stitchers ask me if I am crazy?! I guess if I was a large company I would need to charge more...but I can afford to be generous with my stitching friends and as you all know...I love to share!
Have a great day. Congratulations to each of you.


P.S. I truly need to add another comment...I hope you don't mind me speaking so boldly about my floss price compared to other companies. I truly do not mean to offend. I am only stating facts the way I see them. I guess the older I get...the bolder I get!


  1. I bet it's fun to do too, seeing all the gorgeous colors coming out. Grats to all the winners.

  2. God bless you Nancy. You are a truly GOOD person. :)

  3. Congratulations to the winners!!!

  4. Congratulations to the lucky winners! That is interesting to read about how you ended up in the floss-dyeing business, Nancy...

  5. Congratulations to all the winners I have been lucky to have won one of Nancy's givaways, I now perchase from her on her Ebay site I love this ladies generouosity.

  6. Congrats to the winners!!
    What a generous lady you are, Nancy!!

  7. I don't see any problem with your prices or saying it as it is. Congratulations ladies xxxx

  8. Nancy, you made me giggle! It is one of the perks of getting older, isn't it!!I love your floss, even though I haven't got tons of it. But it is so much nicer than the WDW that cost an arm and a leg and seems so much thinner to work with than yours. I now have a metal peg board with all my hand dyed flosses hanging on it like a store does and when I need to sub colors out, its so much easier to do. Your floss hangs right there for me to use. I think I have your purples and burgundy's mostly because I used up all your great greens I had!

  9. Congratulations Ladies. Isn't it great how your business can be flexible enough to change direction so we all benefit!

  10. Congratulations ladies on winning some wonderful thread. It is beautiful and thank you Nancy for dying and supplying it.

  11. Nancy, you are awesome!! Thanks so much for sharing the love.
