I hope you are all sitting down when you ready this post (mostly so you don't faint from the shock of seeing me post on my blog)! I often think of things I want to write and don't find or make the time. This year I WILL DO IT!!
Lots of new happenings including weekly specials, flash sales, fabric destashing (shop and my own personal stash) and new fabric lines discounted. I also have shop hours now if you want to come in person. Below are more detailed descriptions of the new happenings.
Weekly Specials. Each week I will be choosing fabric, precuts, fabric lines, notions, patterns, kits, etc. and will be offering those items at a discounted price. Whether you follow me on Instagram, Facebook or here, you will see a photo come up with the caption "Weekly Special". You can visit my Etsy shop, search for "Into The Woods" (or whatever the weekly special is) and see the reflected discounts. At the end of that week the prices will change. For example: The week of January 4, 2016, the following special is in place.
"Into the Woods" by Lella Boutique
Layer Cakes and Jelly Rolls $23.95
Remaining yardage in shop is $6.50 per yard
I will have random flash sales that may only last a day or two, there won't be
much notice, and it will be an opportunity to purchase items at a discount for
a short period of time. As a heads up this time I will hold a flash sale
on Wednesday, January 13, 2015 so keep your eyes and ears open.
Fabric Destashing. If you follow me on Instagram you have seen a
little bit of fabric destashing going on. I will be selling some of my
own personal stash this year. I have way too much and know that there is
never going to be enough time to sit and sew everything I would love to.
I will also be selling more scrap bags, end of bolt bundles, items that are
purchased on sale which I can pass on to you at a great price, etc.
(Free Spirit fabrics are a good example of this as I have several in the shop
for $5.00 per yard). The best way to see these items is to follow me on
Instagram. These sales will remain in effect until the items are gone at
which time the post will be deleted
Discounted fabric lines. I'm saving what I think is the best news for last. With each new fabric line that comes in beginning the day it arrives, I will be offering a discount on yardage and precuts for ONE WEEK. (You are likely to see yardage discounted $.50 per yard from my regular price, layer cakes and jelly rolls marked down $1.00 each, and fat quarter and fat eighth bundles discounted). I will be blogging about fabric lines, precuts, items I have ordered here. In addition, in my Etsy shop I will keep a thorough list of the fabric lines and designers and the months the items are expected to arrive. This will help you "plan ahead" if you want to receive the discount. Rules are ... the day the fabric arrives the special starts. One week later regular prices will be in effect. Watch for the following:
"Strawberry Fields Revised" by Fig Tree & Co.
Yardage $8.00 per yard
Layer Cakes $26.95
Jelly Rolls $26.95
Charm Packs $7.85
Mini Charms $3.10
Fat Quarter Bundles $105.00
Fat Eighth Bundles $55.00
Hours. The shop is
now open Wednesday evenings from 6 to 9 p.m. It's a great way to come
browse in person, visit, and save a few dollars. I have lots of items in
the shop that aren't online (i.e. patterns, fat quarters, fat eighths, even some
yardage). You are also welcome to order online and send me a note
you want to pick up and shipping will be refunded to you.
Rules: If you purchase on Etsy shipping overages over
$1.00 will be refunded (the postal service is increasing shipping prices again
on January 17th). If you are sent a paypal invoice, please pay promptly
so that others will be able to purchase items and not have to wait to see if
they are available. Once the sale is over, regular prices will go
I know this is a lot to take in and I hope you bear with me
while I incorporate all of these changes. I think you will find it
Happy New Year! and more importantly Happy Sewing! Evie~
