Hey guys -- surgery was yesterday, and it went great. There was nothing remarkable about my gallbladder, except that it didn't want to do its thing anymore, so it had to come out. I am sore, but in good spirits.
Mississippi has issued a shelter in place order starting April 3rd at 5 p.m. What does that mean for the online shop? We can continue to pack orders, actually. I live at work, so you know, no rest for the weary (the wicked?)
New things keep showing up on my doorstep, including a re-release by Blackbird Designs (see the top left corner of this page). I also have two new reproductions by The Scarlet Letter, thread packs for the Little House Kringle piece, new Gloriana silks, and more.
A LOT of you are ordering fabric and threads, which is great (you must all be stitching). We are starting to run low on a lot of our fabrics, and our suppliers are giving us varying answers as far as how quickly we'll have more. I should have more XJudesign fabrics in the next few days (two big boxes worth). Picture This Plus is on order (I think I have three new orders in now). Poor Marilyn says they cannot keep up. and it may be a while longer than it normally takes (so, it could be six weeks or more). I did get some R&R Reproductions linens in, and those will soon fly the coop. I do try to hide things that are out of stock, so if you can put it in your basket and pay for it, that means it is here, and we will send it out.
Some of my suppliers are closed, and some are still open. It just depends on the supplier/designer and their local conditions. Market orders continue to come in from my customers -- everything that isn't nailed down is selling. We've got more shipping supplies on the way to us, but are all stocked up and ready to continue sending you the goods.
No matter where this finds you, I hope that you can stay safe and healthy during this worldwide health crisis. I think we stitchers are often uniquely designed to weather such conditions, as we'd rather be home stitching, anyway. Please keep you and your loved ones close -- including your furry loved ones -- and happy stitching!
Love - T
I don't carry anything I don't like -- truly! There are so many great designs, old and new, so many samplers to stitch, so many fabrics to fondle, and lots of great fibers, books, tools, trims, and more.... watch for more expansion of products -- to not only include what's good in needlework, but what's good in .... well, being good!
You're going to love my flat shipping fees -- $3 in the U.S. Really! The more you buy, the better that deal gets, so get a clickin'.
