Club invoices for December

I had set up the reoccurring Paypal invoices to start in December. I did a trial run on a customer and it worked fine and it was sent on the scheduled date.

I am getting notifications that Paypal is sending out the December invoices today...don't know why unless it is because the 1st falls on the weekend. They were scheduled for half to go out on the 1st and the other half on the 2nd so we will see how they go. We hope to have all orders shipped by the 6th.

So pay the invoice when you normally to love technology. Just when you think you have it all figured out! LOL

Tomorrow is the BIG day....I start the 12 Days of Christmas give-aways and you don't want to miss out. You can enter each day for the give-aways. I truly love to share and give back to the stitching community. I appreciate all of you.

Stay tuned.

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.

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!

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 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!!
