May went by so fast, and then I looked at the calendar, and it's almost JULY? WHAT???

This summer is going fast; I almost feel like a schoolgirl again. I've been going swimming much of the past few weeks, and it takes me back to the days when I would ride my Schwinn, burgundy red, 10-speed bicycle to the South High pool with a quarter in my shoe and a towel around my neck.

I am current with orders again -- only around 100 in the queue, which is pretty average for me. Thanks for everybody's patience during May and June when I had so many fabric orders. It was a ton of work, but fun to see all the pretty stacks of Blackbird Designs fabrics go out the door. I still have most of them in stock (a few are now sold out at my distributor). But for jury duty this week, I was going to start making custom packages for people to buy, but that will have to wait until jury duty is over.

It is hot as all get-out here in Mississippi. So we drink a little iced tea, eat a little ice cream, run to the pool, and thank heavens for our A/C.

I've got new reproduction samplers with model stitchers. Three went to the frame shop this morning. Good stuff will be coming....

Take care - 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 -- $5 in the U.S. Really! The more you buy, the better that deal gets, so get a clickin'.


Orders are always filled in the order they are received -- shipping waits can vary from one to seven days, depending on order volume. If you can add it to your cart and pay for it, that means that item is in stock and ready to ship to you (unless it's marked as a "preorder.") If you place an order and see that an item is marked "out of stock," you probably purchased the last one. Items are subtracted from my inventory one-by-one as orders are placed.

I appreciate your business, support, friendship, and well-wishes. They keep me going day-after-day. Cheers! - Theresa
