Just a little FYI

Howdy all!~ I wanted to give you all a heads up. My local needlework shop, ok it's about a 40 minute drive but about as local as it gets, put a bug in my ear. They said that many of the overdyed floss brands raised their price on Feb. 1st, which meant the needlework shops were doing the same. They , Cecilia's Samplers, are not going to raise the prices until June 1st! If you have experienced a jump in price where buy your floss and would like to save some money, consider checking them out. Margaret and her crew are very helpful and quick to get orders out. There is usually always a little something extra in the package when it arrives. Things I have gotten have been calendars, free patterns of course, and rulers, to name a few. This is the place where I have gotten all those rement bags of linen for $1 a bag. There are usually 6-8 pieces in the bag of various brands, counts, and colors.They don't always have them, but sometimes they do. They are perfect sizes for ornaments , needlebooks and other small projects.
Hope you get a chance to check them out.
take care,


  1. Thanks for the info Sharlotte! I'll check it out.

  2. I just had to check out Cecelia's . . WOW . wish I was 40 miles (or less) from there.

    You mentioned the $1.00 remnant bags. Do you have to pick them up at the store or do they mail them also?

  3. Ooo, good to know! I'm off to check it out. :)


Thank you for your comments. They just make my day! Thanks for your visit today!
