The Great Organization Project of 2023 continues ...
As some of you may know, I have been re-organizing my website to make the search for items easier and more like browsing at a store!
I have so far completed Fabric, which is now by count, brand and colour! As well as noting on each listing the sizes that are instock and ready to ship! (no size note means it needs to be ordered). For Supplies, you will find sections for items to help while you Design, Stitch or Finish your project! Patterns have a dedicated "IN STOCK" collection so you can hunt down your next new project and know it will be on its way in a couple of days ready for you to start stitching!
And now .... Threads!
I saved the best for last .... and by best I mean the most complicated of all my projects! Threads are going to be organized by THREAD MATERIAL, THREAD BRAND & THREAD TYPE. This way you can browse the different types of metallic threads or silks to see what is out there to stitch with. I have also started an section of IN STOCK collections as well.
The Gentle Art (GAST) has been updated so that all the colours are now together alphabetically for easier searching. The 5 yard skeins are now about 80% in stock and I am doing monthly replenishment orders. There are now only a few colours that are still on backorder and these are noted on each listing!
Find it under Thread Type - Floss, Thread Material - Cotton or Thread Brand - The Gentle Art (GAST)
Just Cross Stitch - Halloween Edition!
One of the most popular magazine is the Halloween edition of Just Cross Stitch ... packed full of mini stitching projects, make them into ornaments, decorate bags or frame for a touch of Halloween on your desk at work!
(The Christmas Special Edition is also coming soon!)
It's Almost Halloween!
Fall is normally when I look to Halloween for project ideas, although some of you are always thinking about Halloween!
I have a few collections and items that work great for this time of year! I am updating the Stitching the Seasons collections all the time with new items. Please let me know if there is a pattern or item you would like me to look into carrying in the store.
New this year is my Halloween Countdown Calendar ... Just like it's cousin the Christmas Advent Calendar, this large mystery item gives you a small mini present each day as you countdown to October 31st ... So 31 gifts!!! This year my Countdown Calendars are packaged in mini burlap bags that you can use for storage or re-gift to a friend. The bags are all stored in a shallow basket that can be used to contain your current project.
(Christmas Advent Countdown Calendar is also open for pre-order)
New Cottage Garden Thread Order being submitted in September!
I started carrying this great Australian hand dyed thread company in the fall of 2022! They are wonderful to stitch with and come in a rainbow of bright variegated colours. I have a large selection in stock but not all the colours. I will be placing an order in September so if you would like to try these and I don't happen to have your fav. colour in stock, I'll be able to get it for you!
I will also be starting to order the Perle Cotton versions of these colours. If it's available in floss I can get it in Perle #8 or Perle #12! If you are placing an order just add the colour numbers to your order notes! or email me to start the process.
Lots of Fabric on Order!
I have been ordering from Picture This Plus for a couple of years. I have a monthly order for fabrics that are slowly making there way through the dyeing process (and I do mean Sloooooooowly).
Each time I have a Picture This Plus order in transit I add it to my Coming Soon section that you can access directly from my newsletter or you can filter my fabric by Brand collections! (For Needle & Flax, it is in coming soon when I add it to my "To be dyed" list with the supplier!)
Below are my hand dyed fabrics that are in stock and ready to ship! Remember that each listing will note the sizes in stock currently (Small ONLY (1 piece) ... or Small, Medium and/or Large (1 peice))
Always in Stock
* NEW for fall 2023 - DMC Perle #12 balls are now Always in stock!
There are some items that everyone needs to be in stock when you want it ... for me DMC floss is one of those items. It always frustrates me when you go into a store (who will remain nameless) and they are out of stock on most of the thread. You are all excited to start a new pattern and you are pulled down to Earth, your bubble bursts, your dreams are shattered .... well a little over the top but you all know the feeling.
I am going to create a core group of items that will always be in stock (barring unforeseen disasters ... like the zombie apocalypse or a ship stuck in the Suez Canal), I will try to have 2 skeins of each colour in stock.
Included in my "Always in Stock" are ....
DMC Perle Cotton #5 & #12! (other sizes by special order)
Weeks Dye Works Stranded Cotton
Appleton Crewel 2 ply wool (skeins only)
Classic Colorworks Cotton floss
Mill Hill Seed Beads
There is a drop down menu under the "THREADS (ORGANIZATION FOR 2023)" where you can see all the threads that have the entire collection in stock!
