Bargain Bin Updated and International Shipping Notice

Greetings! It is hard to believe that July is almost over and summer is fading as well. While we are still quite hot here in the sunny south, I know that August will pass just as quickly and we will facing the beautiful autumn weather in North Georgia.

Bargain Bin

I have been working quite a bit on the website by removing older designs and even a few designers that we do not sell much of so the website is easier to navigate. In doing so, I have marked down quite a bit the older designs - great ones - just older to make way for the new stock that comes in daily. You will find the sale items in the Bargain Bin and I am not nearly finished as I should be so check back often. In the Bargain Bin, I do not have huge quantities and in some cases only one item left so if you want it, better to order it now versus putting on your Wish List as I will not re-order those items that are deeply discounted.  Click on the Bargain Bin box on the main page of the website or the highlighted link in this newsletter.

New

Also, do check the "new" category for the new items that are in stock. The latest release in Little House Needleworks' Farmhouse Christmas is available to order (#7 in the series) and we continue our 20% off on Little House Needleworks designs on our website through the remainder of 2018. This latest release is titled 'Cock-a-doodle do'.  Praiseworthy Stitches has released two new designs Santa Claus Lane and Mr. Bones Starlight Ballroom. A popular new design is Threadwork Primitives' 1842 Saw Sampler. Plum Street Samplers continue to be a top designer with our shop and her farmyard series has been no exception so do check out all of her designs and Hen Peck. And in addition to Country Cottage Needleworks' latest release in her 'Forest Series', the designer also released 'Camping Trip' for those of you who enjoy camping.

International Shipping

Starting immediately, with the exception of Canada, I will no longer ship orders to international addresses. Much thought was given to this but with more regulations from countries outside the United States such as the GDPR (EU) Privacy Policy and recenty the GST Tax being implemented in Australia, it is not feasible for me to have the liability of fines or the burden of reporting that is associated with these regulations. While I am sure most of these regulations are targeted to large US Companies, I still have to maintain records and be ready to report should the need arise. While I have plenty of reporting that I have to do to US entities, I do not want to do international reporting as well as I would not have time to ship orders and maintain the shop's day to day work.

The other consideration in regards to international shipments is the expense to ship, long delays in Customs and some cases, countries are not even scanning packages further influenced my decision.

I apologize in advance for this decision to my international customers but I also hope you understand the reasoning. 

Thanks again for your business as always, Marty
