Change your club? It's never too late, just let me know. Need to add linen or floss? We can always do that before the shipping label is printed.

Have a great day and thank you to all of you who are in the clubs. It is a lot of work but a lot of fun sending out your goodies each month.

Be Ye Thankful give-away, enter now!


It's almost that time of year here in the states......our traditional Thanksgiving on the 4th Thursday in November. The date this year is the 23rd and I am having my usual Be Ye Thankful give-away to celebrate. Since the original day was a celebration of the harvest....I like to celebrate a harvest of friends! And I am very thankful for each and every one of you.

I thought I would put together a nice selection of goodies to surprise one lucky winner. So you will have to wait and see what it is! These surprises usually have a value of $50 or more as I like to include a nice selection. You can suggest what you would like...floss, fabric (linen or aida), charts, motto kit, etc.....but first you have to tell me what you are thankful for!
 I am always thankful for many things....my wonderful family that surrounds me.....the blessings I have received...and the friends and followers I have met which is the best part of this business. From all over the world I have met the nicest group of people that I enjoy chatting and sharing with.


The give-away will be on the 22nd of November as I will be very busy on the holiday.

Floss Club Updates

I have a few updates for the Floss Clubs.
I will continue the Limited and Primitive Limited Edition Clubs through most of 2018. Unless health issue change and I will notify you.

I will be listing singles from the Limited Editions and the Primitive Limited Editions in the ebay store. Regular pricing of $2.45 per skein. That way if you liked a certain color you can purchase more of it. Most of the colors after March are still available in limited numbers. You can email me an order at any time as I appreciate direct sales to save on the ebay fees.

First I want to thank all of you who just finished your 12 months with me. That was a lot of floss!! LOL
If you joined last December for the Ultimate Club, 12 skeins per month, then your last shipment will go out in November. There are 144 skeins in that collection at this time. I may add a few more next year; I added dark browns, a parchment color and a dark purple by request and those are in the November shipment.
If you received 6 skeins per month in the Ultimate Club, then you are 1/2 way through the collection.
New Limited and Primitive Limited Editions are still being dyed each month.

If you pre-paid for 12 months last December for any of the 3 clubs, then your last shipment will be in November.

Invoices will to out on the 1st.

If you do not receive an invoice by late afternoon, and you would like to continue with any of the clubs, then please send me an email. nbelgian@aol.com.

If you receive a Paypal invoice and you have decided to leave the club, then simply cancel the request and we will remove you from the list. Occasionally a name is not marked off the list for the ending month of a subscription.

If you would like to extend your current subscription please send me an email.

If you would like to join for 6 or 12 skeins each month then send me an email.

I want to thank the new members who have signed up for the clubs.
This is a lot of work but it is a lot of fun coming up with beautiful new colors each month. And a BIG thank you to those of you who have finished your subscriptions.

And I think that just about covers the floss clubs. If you have any questions simply send me an email.

Limited Edition Linen Colors

Here are a few of the linen colors I am dyeing....I like the limited editions....a one time color....grab it while you can.....but I will also carry stock colors. Sometimes I dye the first color base and then customize it when I am ready. A rose tine....yellow or amber tint, etc.
These are the basic light colors. Antique Champagne is a light yellowed cream with mottling.  I still need to photograph that one. Second photo shows the Mottled Cream and Victorian Rose Blush.  Here are some of the others: Top left fabric is a light cream parchment. Nice if you like a white/cream fabric.

Third and fourth photos shows some of the limited edition 1/8 and 1/4 pieces available in 32ct.

 
Nest we have some of the limited edition pieces in 36ct

And last we have some smaller pieces in 40ct.

These are so much nicer in person. You can see the mottling/shading better. But unless you come visit me...you will just have to select from the photos. LOL
If you missed the pricing it is
1/8 is $9
1/4 is $19
1/2 is $39.
Custom order full yards are $70-75.

Thanks for stopping by. I am going to put away the dye pot for today!

Remember your club invoices for floss and linen will go out tomorrow. If you want to add anything be sure to let me know as soon as possible.

Have a nice weekend.

Hand Dyed Linen Colors and club info


It has been a very busy week with boxing floss for the 3 clubs and now the hand dyed linen club. I had hoped to show pictures of the linen colors yesterday but personal things got in the way. I will show some linen on Saturday. Then if you would like to add any to your floss club order I can add it to the invoice. I will have several colors available in 28, 32, 36 and 40ct.
 
Invoices for the floss clubs will go out on Sunday. If you have any changes please let me know as soon as possible.

The pre-paid (for the year) shipments have gone out today since the floss was ready to ship.

I was asked if I use cold water dyes or hot. I use hot. And the linen is heat set with a 400 degree press.

Thank you again to all of you in the floss clubs and all the new members in the hand dyed linen club. I truly appreciate your business.

New linen, and some Floss and Linen club questions for you

It has been a very busy month with lots of linen going out to new customers. Thank you very much. I will be adding stock colors  soon.
I dyed two colors for the Linen Club for October. A basic mottled cream and a Victorian Blush which is a cream with a very slight mottled rose tint. See second photo. (shown are 36 and 40ct but I will do these in 32 and 28ct too) I may do a small sampler on this linen soon. I think the basic mottled cream will be great with other tints as well.

Questions:
If you tried the linen last month and want to stay in the club please let me know. nbelgian@aol.com
If you want to join the linen or floss clubs you can join at any time during the month for 1 month, 3 months, 6 months,  or auto ship each month until you decide to cancel.

*****IMPORTANT:
 If your floss club membership is expiring please let me know if you want to continue this month as I will be sending out invoices on the first for all the clubs.
***You can also switch from floss to the linen club. I have had several do this since they have a huge assortment of hand dyed floss from the club.

I purchased 28 count linen this month and will begin dyeing it this week and is available for the October club shipment. Mottled cream, Victorian Rose, Autumn Browns, Parchment, etc. I will try to do a list of colors available in all counts soon.
Fat 1/8 is $9
Fat 1/4 is $19
Fat 1/2 is $39
Full yards available upon request and vary from $70-75 per yard.

Thanks for stopping by. I am headed to the dye pot!

Hand dyed linen give-away, enter now!

I am never too busy for a give-away for my Faithful Followers. Lets give away some hand dyed linen! A free month in the  new Linen Club!

I have been swamped with individual orders this week. I was going to show some pictures and I was simply too busy. I have a few pictures today.....I am never real happy with my photos but this will give you an idea of a few colors.
Some of my antique sampler or parchment are simply mottled a bit with a darker cream on a light cream.

These colors are more mottled and I think the Autumn Browns is my new favorite. I dyed 36ct linen for this one:
I think it is a little darker than this photo and very rich looking. If you like Autumn, primitive or Halloween stitching, you will love this one.
Then I have some Light Caramel, tans, pale green and Sage (bottom and it is a little greener than this photo)




The pricing is Fat 1/8  $9
Fat 1/4 is $19
Fat 1/2 is $39

I have 32,36 and 40ct. So in your comment please tell me what count and color you like.

New Autumn Colors Collection and Club invoices go out today

Such a busy day.....club invoices will be going out for the 3 floss clubs and the new Linen Club. I want to thank the 21 new members who signed up this week. You can join for as many months as you would like. Quite a few of you also added a piece of linen to your floss club shipments and I thank you. Adding the linen has added a lot more work but I really love dyeing the fabrics. I will show pictures soon.....hopefully this weekend.

The floss club shipments will go out on the 5th as usual. If you would like to add any linen or floss to your order just let me know. I will add it to your invoice.

If you have not received your invoice by this evening be sure to email me.

I have one more new collection of floss that has just been sent out to be carded by my 3 faithful elves. It is my new Autumn Colors Collection. Lots of reds, gold, brown, oranges and an Autumn Green. Here is a peek at what is being carded. They will be back in a couple weeks and I will show them again when carded and boxed and also give a set away so stay tuned.




Thanks again for being Faithful Friends!

A Linen Club? Yes!

I have had a couple.....actually 5 now.....ask me about the possibility of a linen club.
I was thinking that many of you would have enough floss after being in the floss clubs this year and now you might like to try limited edition linens. The linen I will be dyeing is 32, 36 and 40 count. I may add some 28 the next time I order. I actually might have some 28 in stock but will need to do these others first.

The price for the linens:

13x18" or 14x17"   will be $9.00 plus postage. The same postage as the floss club. $2.67 unless we have a postal increase.
If you still get floss and want to add linen it will add $1 to your current postage cost.

17x29" or 18x26" will be $19.00 plus $2.67 postage.

29x35" will be $39.00 plus $3.45 postage.

I  buy my 36 and 40ct linen from Wichelt and use Edinburgh and Newcastle for my base fabric I dye.
My 32ct Belgian linen I purchased a couple years ago.

So let me know if you are interested in the Linen Club or if you simply want to try the linen. Shipments can start on the 1st with the floss clubs. Yes you can switch from floss to linen, no problem. Or add linen to your floss shipments but I need to know right away. I will be dyeing linen all week. I will start with light, mottled fabrics and start showing them later this week.(or as soon as all these dark clouds go away I can take some photos) Cream, tan, sage, etc. Nothing crazy or drastic. When I have a darker or dramatic fabric I will show it here for purchases.

Month to month on the linen club. Try it once or go on auto ship....your choice. Or simply add it once to your floss order to give it a try.

Thank you for your continued interest and support of my products. I always try to bring you quality merchandise at an affordable price to save you money. I do not sell to stores because they would raise the price and defeat my purpose.

I will have a linen give-away in a couple days when I can take some photos so stay tuned.

Flower Seeds 1899 fabric, floss and frame kits

I had a wonderful visit with my friends and now it is back to work. I showed them my newest kit, a pattern I stitched a couple years ago and sold as a kit to make a pocket to put packs of flower seeds. Well I took it apart and mounted it to foam board and framed it in one of our mini motto frames. This style is rustic as it has no grooves in it to dress it up. Adorable....a little primitive...country...old fashioned......

I simply pinned it with regular pins (since I moved so many things this past week I couldn't find the stainless pins) and then I used score tape, 1/4 inch wide, and put it on the foam board and pressed it down. Removed the pins and finished. The tape is acid free for framing. Then I put mat board on the back and the flex tabs on the frame hold everything in place.


There are a couple options for you....The model shown above is stitched on 32ct Sage linen I dyed. It is also available on antique Cream 32ct linen. To fit this frame you need 32ct. It's a little hard to see in the photo but there is roughly 1/4 inch top and bottom. The frame has an opening of 4-1/2" x 9-1/2". The little kit is complete with the pattern, linen and over dyed floss in shades of rose, taupe and two sage greens. The kit is $19 plus $2.67 postage. If you want to add the frame it is an additional $29 and the postage increases to $6.00 in the states. The frame comes with the backing and the wire hanger attached. You will need foam board to mount your little stitched piece. Actually you could tape it right to the acid free mat board but the back might look a little untidy unless you cover it.
These little frames will be available in about 1 week. We are in the process of making quite a few as they sell quickly. I use them for my mini motto kits.
You can pre-order now, email me at nbelgian@aol.com. Payment is required to order.
When I have time I will stitch the other model on the cream linen and show it to you but I think you can imagine it with a lighter color background. I prefer the sage color myself.

Back to cutting linen and getting the dye pot ready for a marathon.............
                                                    Nancy

I am dyeing more linen in 32,36 and 40ct. I sold quite a bit when my friends came to shop. I will show the linen soon and give you colors and counts available. I will give you the best prices I possibly can until there is an increase in the wholesale cost.
The 13x18" or 14x17" will be $9 each. The 17x29" and 18x26" will be $19.00 each. The 29x35" will be $39 each.

Hand dyed linen, 32,36 and 40ct coming soon

I have been dyeing lots of linen in several counts the past couple weeks. I will start showing it to you next week as I am busy getting ready for 10 stitching friends to visit me on Tuesday (the ebay store is on vacation hold for another week) and I wanted to have some of the new linen dyed. I started with gentle mottled colors in several shades and a few semi-darks.

I have had 4 ladies ask me if I would consider a linen club of my limited edition colors. I will consider it. Maybe....but no promises just yet. I will have a quite a few colors, counts, and sizes each  month to show you.

Three Birthday winners today!!


Thank you very much for all the birthday wishes and blessings. I count you all as friends and life is good! I am not thrilled about turning 65 today........but each year we have is a blessing from above.

Three names were drawn from the hat today......three lucky winners who will receive a box of floss from me as I share my birthday celebration today.
Lydia Stevenson
LaNelle
and Grandma Judy

Congratulations!!!! I hope you enjoy your gift from me. Please send me an email with you address.

I am taking today off......most of it. A work-a-holic can't take an entire day off! lol Besides....I have bolts of 65 yards of linen that needs to be cut into pieces to dye......part of my next give-away after I get a bunch of colors and counts dyed. I am doing 32, 36 and 40 count linens. Gorgeous linens even before they are dyed. And they will go into the new linen cupboard that I splurged and bought.....which I will show when it is full of linens.

Thanks again to everyone for a wonderful birthday celebration.

                              Love,
                                          Nancy

Did you get your floss club invoice this morning?

All of the invoices have gone out for the floss clubs this morning. 3-1/2 hours of sending invoices but I am finally done. Please let me know if you did not receive yours or if you need to add anything to your order.

You can join the floss clubs at any time during the month. And you can add other items to combine postage.

Thank you once again. I appreciate all of you who are in the clubs. I really enjoy creating and sending out all these new colors each month.

Have a nice day.

Nancy

Hand Dyed Linen questions for you

I will have more hand dyed Limited Editions linens soon. I do have a couple questions for you and I would love to hear from you.

I have dyed quite a few yards of 32ct in the past and they sell out quickly. I will also do some 36ct and 40ct this time too. Small batches of each color. I love limited editions and they can be substituted for called for colors or just be creative and use you own mix of fabric and colors. I will show you these colors when they are finished. And I will also have a give-away each month for linen. No plans for a linen club....yet!

Yes I know there are a lot of companies that do hand dyed linens. But I do try to price my items less expensive to save my stitching friends some money.

My question today is what size pieces do you prefer to buy?

My fat 1/8 will be 14 x 17".  $10
Fat 1/4 will be 17 x 29"         $20
Fat 1/2 will be 29 x 35"         $40-42
Unless wholesale prices change again. If I get a sale I will reduce prices on that batch.

What type of shading do you like? I like to do a nice mottled look and not real drastic. These will be more mottled than pieces I have previously dyed. Some will have two colors for effect.

I tried to prices these to give you a nice discount.

I have sold full yard pieces in the past but 1/2 yards seem to be enough for samplers and the smaller pieces were requested many times. I might add some full yard pieces each month. They will be around $70-76, depending on the count.

I am amazed at the wholesale prices when I just purchased linen last week. Prices have definitely gone up since I purchased a few years ago. Some have doubled and there were no specials or sale prices. Of course not. Everyone is dyeing linen these days so they don't have to offer sales to us. Good old supply and demand.

I just dyed some beautiful colors for a retreat and I will start dyeing more after the floss club orders go out in a few days.

Floss Club invoices go out tomorrow. If you need to change anything (some switch clubs to round out their collections) or if you need to add any singles or boxed collections please let me know as soon as you can.

I would love to hear from you regarding the size pieces you usually buy or any questions you have for me. You can post your answer here to email me. nbelgian@aol.com.

Thanks so much for your time.
