The May flowers are already in bloom and thoughts are turning to vacations, weddings and summer BBQ’s. We will be doing our share of summer’s fun activities as well, but first and foremost we have our Liquidation Sale with which to continue.
Each week I talk with customers to who still do not know we are ‘For Sale and/or closing’. We have sent fliers through the US mail, as well as many E-blasts over the past four months. We continue to look for a new ‘mom and dad’ for The Bear. However, if the ‘good ship lollipop’ docks without a new captain, all of our beautiful fabrics and trimmings will be gone, as they are registered proprietary designs. Many of you have been very prudent over the winter months to stock up on your favorites, but I encourage all of you to do the same soon.
A synopsis of our Liquidation Sale is included. We have prepared some packets for those of you who would like the information mailed by post. Just give us a call!
Also, I recently took a couple of photographs of the many and varied ribbons that have been acquired over the years. They are available in single small pieces, so do inquire of those as well.
Now to happier and more pleasant topics! Over the past 35 plus years I have been in the textile business, I have written articles and lectured on the process of how lace is made. But recently I came across a Leavers Bobbin which I thought might be of interest to our readers. I hope you enjoy the article and pictures.
Enjoy the latest edition and Happy Stitching –
