Important floss and linen club updates

Posting important floss and linen club updates  once again.

We are shipping lots of orders and will have all the current club orders out by the last day of June.

Starting July 1st both clubs will be available on Ebay and Etsy.

You will NOT be getting the regular Paypal invoices from us. We have notified Paypal to stop sending those invoices. If you do get one, as Paypal can be slow with changes, DO NOT PAY the invoice. 
****If you have any old unpaid invoices do not pay those either.

Please order on the other sites. Our available floss sets are show there.
***Important price increases are reflected there. Wholesale floss prices increased drastically over a year ago and we continued to keep the prices low as long as we could. Our shipping costs have gone up and other wholesale prices are on the rise.

The listings for floss will be for 6 or 12 skeins. Titles will be Limited Editions or Primitives for July and then will change each month.

We will list in batches each day so we can keep to shipping within 24 hours of orders placed. We will list more each day from the 1st-15th of each month. You can then purchase the club and amount you want and re-order if you want more.

Linens will be listed each month and you can purchase colors and counts you like. This will be much easier.

From our previous post:
We thought it would be easier than adjusting invoices for postal increases since they will calculate exact postage for you, current supply increases.....and you can purchase the months you want or extras of any club. Paypal and many other payment options with either site and orders are shipped within 24 hours. The best part.

This will help us since many of you have occasional vacation holds.
Or when you need to skip a month. Or pay on a certain date.
Or buy an extra month for colors you like. Change of address or club shipments, etc. It gets crazy changing your invoices for you so now you can purchase the sets you like or you can alternate primitives with limited editions. Or change linen counts.

Ebay site is here. We have had the store since 2005 for motto kits, floss, charts, chenille trims, etc,

Etsy site is here

We think this will be a lot easier for us not sending invoices and we thank you for working with us. We appreciate your business and the great response we have had to the change to both sites and the huge volume of orders since our last post.

Victorian Christmas, Classic Christmas, Antique Dried Flowers and other flower collections are coming soon.

Floss and Linen clubs will be available on Ebay and Etsy starting in July

Starting on July 1st you will be able to purchase the floss or linen clubs on Ebay and Etsy (you can also use your Etsy gift cards there). We thought it would be easier than adjusting invoices for postal increases since they will calculate exact postage for you, current supply increases.....and you can purchase the months you want or extras of any club. Paypal and many other payment options with either site and orders are shipped within 24 hours. The best part.

This will help us since many of you have occasional vacation holds.
Or when you need to skip a month. Or pay on a certain date.
Or buy an extra month for colors you like. Change of address or club shipments, etc. It gets crazy changing your invoices for you so now you can purchase the sets you like or you can alternate primitives with limited editions. Or change linen counts.
We will list the new club sets and linen colors on the 1st of each month and restock as needed on each site.

We currently have the floss collections available on each site......and list new ones as we have them.  There are three new collections (not floss clubs but new sets). Price increases for floss have been added.
Classic Red Roses, a 6 skein set

Sleepy Hollow the Headless Horseman, 6 skeins

Sleepy Hollow and Ichabod Crane, 6 skeins


Ebay site is here. We have had the store since 2005 for motto kits, floss, chenille trims, etc,

We think this will make invoices a lot easier for us and we thank you for working with us.

April and May orders still shipping

 April and May orders are still shipping. A lot of customers paid late and are getting caught up so we were flooded with orders.


We now have all the back ordered inventory and are stocked up for 10 months for this year. We appreciate your patience during the difficult time of getting materials from our suppliers.


You can wait until you receive the current orders before you pay.


Thank you for your patience.

Important updates and a thank you to our suppliers

 Last year was difficult for the manufacturers everywhere. With many restrictions and lockdowns they continue to do their best to provide us with merchandise.

I have been told by my distributor that Zweigart is still 4 months behind in production but they have added a third shift to help them and hopefully they will get caught up. They have been struggling since last spring.


We were pleased to receive a pallet of 19 boxes of floss cones delivered by the freight company, 715 pounds of floss! The DMC sales rep told me they are working with 25% staff in the warehouse. We have been working long hours to dye and card floss. I do the floss 12 hours a day and Tom does emails, packing and shipping. I know it has been difficult for some of you who are anxious for your orders. We understand. We have enough floss to get us through 6 months and should have another shipment in 60 days.

January and February clubs are still shipping and should be complete by early next week. March should ship by the end of March. This has been no easy task to catch up after we received back ordered inventory.


We thank all of you for understanding. Covid has made everything difficult and stressful for all of us. We will get through this.

Thank you

Nancy and Tom

Thank you for your patience

 We continue to thank you for your patience as we process orders. We have received another shipment from Zweigart and DMC and we are working as fast as we can to get the last of the back orders out to you.

We are finally getting ahead on inventory as we order as often as inventory becomes available. Getting stocked up is a huge relief as Zweigart in Germany is still 4 months behind in production and it is not getting any better from what we hear. Placing another order next week should put us 4 months ahead with our inventory for the clubs with floss and linens. We quit taking special orders so we can supply club members.


We know this has been difficult for you to be patient and we truly appreciate all of you. We will continue the clubs this year and hopefully things will ease up and get better in the future.


Be sure to tell your friends to sign up to follow the blog for email updates.


Thank you.
