March orders still shipping

 March 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 6-8 months for this year. We appreciate your patience during the difficult time of getting materials from our suppliers.


I will be helping Tom answer emails once again as he is swamped with shipping and emails.


Paypal might be sending some of the April invoices early....I have asked them a dozen times not to send them early.......and they never listen.

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


We are shipping hundreds of orders over the next two days.

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.
