Treasures in the Attic Trunk winner today!

It's always fun to announce the winner of a give-away. Today a name was drawn for Treasures in the Attic Trunk.

I love antiques. I love old trunks and I have a nice collection of them. And the treasures that you put in these trunks are from a life time of memories. Dried flowers, wedding treasures, baby clothes, etc. So I put together a nice collection of memories. And I dyed them beautiful colors. Soft, antique looking, perfect for samplers, primitives, flowers, etc....and here they are:
Some of the color names are: 1904 World's Fair, Wedding Quilt, Grandmother's Violets, Dolly's Dress, Garden Gate, School Sweethearts, Love's Promise, Summer Jasmine, etc.
Memories and treasures one would store in the attic trunk.

Congratulations Shelby Biggs! Please email me and give me your address. nbelgian@aol.com

I will be showing two new collections today so stay tuned. And be sure you have signed up for the drawing of Antique Dried Flowers. The drawing is in two days. The drawing for the Tribute to Sisters will be July 14th. I will give away another box of these Treasures in the Attic Trunk next month.

Have a great day!

The Old Spinning Wheel and Southern Appalachian Wildflower sets

Two beautiful new collections will be ready soon. I was asked to show a few pictures of the colors. I have these two collections ready to card (they will get sent out this week) and here they are:

The Old Spinning Wheel. One of my favorite VERY old songs.....

There's an old spinning wheel in the parlor
Spinning dreams of the long, long ago
Spinning dreams of an old fashioned garden
and a maid with her old fashioned beau.

I love that song! Every time I start humming it I think I should do a nice collection of floss....so I finally did.
These are the colors:
Lamplight Spinning, Hand Dyed Fibers, Country Linens, Lamb's Wool, Hand Spun, Primitive Fibers, Spinning Wheel, Loom Shuttle, Shepherd's Crook, Antique Loom, Carding Wool and Cottage Yarn.

I will hold 10 sets back for me to card and send the rest out to be done. You can preorder now. The first 10 can go out in a few days or be mailed with your floss club shipment on the 1st. The rest will be ready in 3 weeks.
I will be printing, cutting and drilling cards all day for 5 collections. That's 1320 cards for each collection and 26,400 yards of floss for each collection. 6600 cards and 132,000 yards of floss. Thank goodness I have 3 helpers carding for me now.

The next collection is the Southern Appalachian Wildflowers. There were so many to choose from! I could do a hundred collections of these! Of course we will do just one for now. There are so many other collections I want to get to.
Here are the 12 I selected:
Wake Robin, Catesby's Trillium, Beardtongue, Downy Lobelia, Bluestar, Smooth Rockcress, Fern Frond, Gray's Lily, Flame Azalea, Indian Paintbrush, Columbine, and Southern Red Trillium.

I will do the same for these. I will hold 10 sets back for me to card and send the rest out to be done. You can preorder now. The first 10 can go out in a few days or be mailed with your floss club shipment on the 1st. The rest will be ready in 3 weeks.

These are $27.99 plus postage. nbelgian@aol.com to reserve yours now. I do require payment with preorders. Makes things simple.

AND......on the drying rack I have Farmhouse Memories. I might be able to get a picture later today to show you those.

I am still dyeing floss for the Penny Candy Collection, Primitive Browntones and Let Me Call you Sweetheart. After those are done I will do Cactus Flowers and The General Store Collection. I have 3 more after those...but you will have to wait! LOL  We have to save some for a surprise.

Back to work....it is going to be a very long day....week....month....year.....lol

New Collections and Lots of changes coming to my current floss inventory

I have a lot of new floss collections in the works, as usual! The dye pot will be busy all of July dyeing beautiful colors for these new sets. Two sets have been dyed and will be going out to be carded next week.
Here are a few in the works:

Southern Appalachian Wildflowers
Let Me Call You Sweetheart
Farmhouse Memories
Primitive Shades of Browntones
The Olde Spinning Wheel
Penny Candy Collection

And I have a few more I have been thinking about .....it takes a while to pick colors and names.  I think Texas Wildflowers will be later this summer. There is a huge assortment to choose from.
One more that was mentioned was Cactus Flowers....I looked at the online types of cactus flowers and was shocked at how bright and vast the varieties are. And I have a few more collections in mind so you will be in store for lots of new floss all summer. When each collection is available I will be taking orders (preorders at any time) and there will be  give-aways.

I have lots of changes coming to my current floss inventory, primarily the singles I have in stock. Not the Ultimate Collection, that will remain the same.

The 1840 and 1795 singles from those collections will be removed from the ebay inventory and put into the grab bag assortment I have listed. I will include all of the other singles I have currently listed. That's about 90 colors in all. If you need any of them before I remove them be sure to let me know. nbelgian@aol.com
It's time for new singles......so.......

I will be listing singles from the Limited Edition monthly sets and the Primitive Limited Edition sets. So if you wanted more of a color that you received in the floss club it will be listed. I had a lot of extras of most of the colors and I wanted to clear out my old singles and refresh the store inventory. A lot of you purchased extra singles after you received your monthly club selections and I thought I would give others, who did not join a club, a chance to purchase a few of the colors.

The advantage to belonging to the club is to receive one free skein each month. A free 20 yard skein is a nice savings and pays for your postage.

I think that is all of the news for this week! I will be dyeing floss all weekend and then printing, cutting and drilling the cards. All to bring you beautiful floss collections.

Have a nice weekend.

Updates for The Floss Clubs, please read

I have a couple updates for the Floss Clubs. First I want to thank the new members.......I love sharing my floss with all of you.

If you joined in January for 6 months, please update and let me know if you want to extend your membership. I send auto invoices on the 1st of each month and mail before the 5th.
Email nbelgian@aol.com

If you would like to join, here are the current options:
Limited Editions or Primitive Editions is taking new members. The Ultimate Floss Club is full. Due to the large number of skeins in this collection, it takes 12-18 months to get the complete collection.

Thank you for joining the floss clubs. The response was fantastic and it is always nice to meet new members. If you would like to join, you can email and join at any time during the month.

Have a nice Father's Day

I hope everyone has a nice Father's Day. Some of us have lost our Fathers.....mine passed away 20 years ago.  But I have  been blessed with grandsons and I get to help them celebrate today with their dad......we always have fun celebrating holidays together. The best part of helping to raise this second family.....even if I am the only girl in a house full of guys! LOL  But having them here with us for the last 16 years has been wonderful.

I will work a bit this morning as there is always a lot to do with this business. I will box floss that is going out to be carded. Some collections and some singles.....always so much floss to card.
Today the dye pot will rest but starting tomorrow it will be going every day, I have several new collections in mind and I think you are going to like them. I will show them to you after they are carded (if I can wait that long....I usually give in) and of course we will give some away. We ALWAYS give some away!

Have a nice day and thanks for stopping by!

Floss Club invoices go out tomorrow. Would you like to join us?

The invoices go out tomorrow for the 3 Floss Clubs. Would you like to join us? And I want to thank the 8 new members that joined last month. This is a great way to build a nice collection of floss at an affordable price.

You can change your club at any time, add other merchandise to your order....just email me in advance and let me know. Quite a few of you added the new flower sets and I thank you.

I send invoices out on the 1st and mail before the 5th. Most orders go out the next day after you pay. If you want to extend your membership be sure to let me know.

I had another inquiry for International postage costs. To most countries the USPS charges $13.50 (yes....that's crazy!) for a couple ounces. BUT.......we can ship 2 or 3 months floss from the club for the same $13.50. So you can pay quarterly for one club or get all three clubs for the same price. You could also split the shipping cost with a friend. So you have several great options to help with our high postal costs.

Thank you for joining the floss clubs. This is a lot of work but also a lot of fun and a great way to share since you are getting a free skein with each order.

Have a great day.

Price change due to Ebay, please read

A little information you might want to read.

 I am wholesale to the public simply to give stitchers a great deal and save you money. Plain and simple. I turn down requests from shops to carry my floss because it will raise the price for you. I discourage designers from using my floss in their designs because I will not put it in shops. I know you all appreciate the great price of my floss. I went into this business to prove that you can be generous with people and it simply isn't about making money. It's about sharing....and helping people on a tight budget who would like to stitch more. And having fun with lots of give-aways all year long. And if you have been a follower of mine you know how much I give back.

All of my repeat customers always buy direct from me. After their first Ebay sale I ask for direct sales. Ebay fees are high. And we have to pay 10% of the postage. But now they have dropped our discounts as top rated sellers. They used to entice you to be a top rated seller and then you received 20% off the fees you paid to list and sell items. Well they have dropped that to 10% and that is just not acceptable to me. Their fees are steadily going up and discounts going down for sellers. So.......

The prices in my ebay store will go up 10% very soon. I ask my regular customers to browse the ebay store but purchase directly from me if you want the sale price.

I hope you understand my position. I can sell wholesale to the public but I can't take a loss. I'm generous....not dumb! LOL

Thank you for listening. I know quite a few people who are leaving Ebay because they have had enough. I will work with them a little longer and then maybe do a separate web site. All I need to do is find enough hours in the day to get all of this done. I have more important things to do....like dye floss! LOL
