I wanted to take a few minutes to tell you about my new floss line for 2016. I have always done limited editions. So when a color sells out, I don't dye that color again. The exceptions are the colors I use in the motto kits. Over the years I have turned down opportunities to sell my floss because I only wanted to do limited editions. Well the time has come. I have had dozens of people ask me to do colors that I will keep in stock and I will do a whole line of colors in 2016. I will start with 130 colors. Believe me....that is a lot of colors to start with. I just placed my order with my DMC rep and the first part of the order will ship next week and the rest has to come from France. Then it will be a dyeing marathon followed by a floss carding marathon. I probably will wait until all the floss is done before I introduce the new colors.
Now....for pricing. I have been selling my 20 yard skeins for $2 for over 8 years to bring you a great value. DMC had 3 price increases during that time and I didn't raise my prices. This time their price increase has forced me to charge $2.50 for my 20 yard skeins. Considering most of the other over dyed companies charge $2.50 for 5 yards, I think my floss is still a very good value.
All of my current inventory will remain $2 until it sells out. I have a lot in this inventory and it is currently on sale for $1.70 per skein if you buy in my ebay store or direct from me. This sale ends on the 15th of this month so if you want to stock up I recommend you do it now and tell your friends the sale will be ending soon.
I want to say that I have turned down many offers over the years to have stores carry my floss. To do that it would have raised the price and the whole purpose of me selling my floss was to save stitchers money. Plain and simple. So I sell my floss wholesale price to all of you.
Thank you for taking the time to read through this. I am excited about this new floss line.......I get to play with dye and experiment with colors! Some of my favorite things to do.
I will keep you posted as to when the new colors will be available. I will offer a large selection.....soft sampler colors, primitive muted tones and a beautiful assortment for all of your stitching projects.
It sounds like the end of this year and the beginning of next year are going to be very busy around here....but that's nothing new!
