It's Friday the 13th & it's time for a Devilishly fun sale ... and as hot as it's been, I think the devil would feel right at home ...
But back to our fun!
All day Friday, from the stroke of midnight to the stroke of midnight, all the creepy, crawly, scary, spooky designs are 20% off for your trick-or-treating fun!
Before you get down to the blood & guts of the fun, I want to ask you to read ALL THE WAY to the bottom for some houskeeping info: there are a few points of clarification that apply to every day, not just Friday the 13th!!
Skeleton Crew - from Cricket Collection. Holy skull & bones, Batman!! Lise just finished framing Jacki's "Skeleton Crew" & WOW!!! We were lovin' this when Jacki brought it in for framing, but now it's AWESOME! The frame has skulls & bones all around ~ what could be better for this piece? We have all her color changes here too! If you're nearby, stop in the shop & see this, as
we are holding it for ransom until Jacki brings us more treats we have it on loan until Jacki comes to take it home!!
Heads Up ~ the spoolkeeps are here!
These little spoolkeeps are A-DORABLE!!! Each kit includes EVERYTHING you need to make these little spooks: buttons & pins, the felt ball, the spool, the WDW wool, fabric pieces, ribbon & perle cotton. All you need is a needle, floss & some glue!
A quick note: they are also available with just the buttons & pins & felt ball ~ you would have to add everything else. We are carrying the complete kits (because we know WE don't have time to go searching for all the other stuff, so you probably don't either).
Gus the Ghost ~ Wendy the Witch ~ Mumford the Mummy
Frankie the Monster ~ Barney the Bat ~ Baskin the Kitty
It's here! And it is jammmed full of spooky treats for you to stitch! This year's issue has larger pictures as well as little ornaments ~ 48 designs in a $9.99 magazine! I have to say, this is no trick, it's the best treat in town. Don't miss your chance to get yours ~ once they're gone...they're gone.

SOME TASTY NUGGETS TO MAKE YOUR SHOPPING LESS STRESSFUL
We do our level best ... what, exactly, does that mean? And can you do an "unlevel" best?... to provide as much fantastic stuff as possible in the shop & on the website. On line we are trying to do a better job of listing all the "go with" goodies you'll need. In the shop we're working on keeping as many of your favorite things in stock as we can. Given our restraints ~ time in one case, & space in the other ~ there will be times that things may be out of stock. Keep in mind that we will get anything you need back in the shop ASAP & will call you if you'd like to pick it up or we'll send it out if you live further away. One other note about the website ~ actually 2, & then we'll move on ~ we do keep things online that we don't have in the shop ONLY IF we know we can get it for you in a reasonable time frame (no more than a couple weeks). Right now we are having a real struggle with one of our more popular designers as far as their shipping response time & I am dangerously close to pulling all their things offline because I HATE for you to have to wait. It may still happen. Also, while we are focusing much more & supplying all the info you need, we find that Neverday never gets here ~ you know, the day where we can go back & update info, change prices or note the necessity of a substitute. There will be prices differences from time to time. If they are materially different, we will contact you first. This summer has been particularly harried as we try to make it possible for those of us who work here to go on vacation, be with family for medical reasons & take care of kids.
Bottom line: bear with us! We're sure that the inventory fairy will one day magically appear & make all our supplies & info perfect. As Cindy says, "we're just a ticket away"!
Okay stitchers & ghouls, now is the time to stock up on treats that you don't have to X-Ray before you enjoy them!
