Vacations, updates and new arrivals!

Hello! I trust that the holiday season treated you all well and you are ready to start 2017 filled with plenty of sewing and crafting projects. I, for one, am eager to start the year off right (in the sewing room of course!). I have several projects planned for this year, which I will share the details with you on another blog post.

While I am hot off of my break from Christmas holidays, I am somewhat reluctantly having to shut down the shop for a wee bit longer while my husband and I enjoy a holiday in Mexico. It has been 10 years since we have taken a vacation alone together, and I'd say we are past due! This opportunity came rather unexpectedly but we jumped at the chance. We will return on January 15, and I am hoping, hoping, hoping, that Tilda's Bumblebee arrives shortly afterwards. It will be listed in the shop and announced the moment it does. We usually receive it a bit later than our Australian friends. It was just released there so will be here very soon!

I also received a huge order (23 bolts!) of discontinued, no longer available, but absolutely gorgeous older Tilda lines. There's some real treasures there, including accessories, paper goods and of course, fabric.....lots and lots of fabric! It will also be listed as soon as I am back. The absolutely most exciting part is this lot of goodies came to me at discounted prices, and I will be sharing those savings with you. Any fabric in this grouping will be $10/yard, which is unheard of for Tilda lines! Think backings and yardage for borders etc. This was a one time special and I will never be able to get these discounted prices again. The accessories will also be discounted from the regular price. I have kits, scissors, ribbons, paper goods and so much more. I am just giddy with excitement. My husband is a wee bit worried I will keep it all for myself. While this is awfully tempting, I know my limit and will enjoy a small offering, but list the rest on the website.

With that I will leave you, while I pack to leave the snow behind, to welcome sand and sun.

Happy New Years and as always, thank you so much for supporting my little shop.

(ps if you placed an order from my shop over Christmas, not to worry, it will be shipped out before our vacation. If you'd like to order something before I shut down again, please do so before midnight, January 3, as I am taking the last mail first thing on the 4th before we leave. Any orders placed between January 4-15 will ship when I return. Thank you.)
