I will have more hand dyed Limited Editions linens soon. I do have a couple questions for you and I would love to hear from you.
I have dyed quite a few yards of 32ct in the past and they sell out quickly. I will also do some 36ct and 40ct this time too. Small batches of each color. I love limited editions and they can be substituted for called for colors or just be creative and use you own mix of fabric and colors. I will show you these colors when they are finished. And I will also have a give-away each month for linen. No plans for a linen club....yet!
Yes I know there are a lot of companies that do hand dyed linens. But I do try to price my items less expensive to save my stitching friends some money.
My question today is what size pieces do you prefer to buy?
My fat 1/8 will be 14 x 17". $10
Fat 1/4 will be 17 x 29" $20
Fat 1/2 will be 29 x 35" $40-42
Unless wholesale prices change again. If I get a sale I will reduce prices on that batch.
What type of shading do you like? I like to do a nice mottled look and not real drastic. These will be more mottled than pieces I have previously dyed. Some will have two colors for effect.
I tried to prices these to give you a nice discount.
I have sold full yard pieces in the past but 1/2 yards seem to be enough for samplers and the smaller pieces were requested many times. I might add some full yard pieces each month. They will be around $70-76, depending on the count.
I am amazed at the wholesale prices when I just purchased linen last week. Prices have definitely gone up since I purchased a few years ago. Some have doubled and there were no specials or sale prices. Of course not. Everyone is dyeing linen these days so they don't have to offer sales to us. Good old supply and demand.
I just dyed some beautiful colors for a retreat and I will start dyeing more after the floss club orders go out in a few days.
Floss Club invoices go out tomorrow. If you need to change anything (some switch clubs to round out their collections) or if you need to add any singles or boxed collections please let me know as soon as you can.
I would love to hear from you regarding the size pieces you usually buy or any questions you have for me. You can post your answer here to email me. firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks so much for your time.
