Lizzie Kate, With Thy Needle and Thread and More!

Goodness! July flew by but with good reason. I relocated the shop to a larger space that is greatly needed so the pains of moving was multiplied with shop inventory, equipment and other things. So, I lost a week with inventory either packed up or on the moving van. However, we are slowly getting back to normal whatever that is. Thank you so much for understanding! July has historically been the quietest month of the year for Frog in terms of orders as well as new releases but that was not the case this year!

With Thy Needle and Thread

Summer Schoolhouse Series from With Thy Needle and Thread has been a huge hit. There are four releases with a total of six designs that are 'smalls' that are stitched over one on 28 Ct Mushroom Lugana. I am offering a "Starter Kit" that includes the first pattern with the fabric cut and fibers for the series in addition to the rick rack and needle nannie. The second design has just been released and I should have in stock by Friday of this week. The designer has updated us that there will be a 'school box' available to showcase your finished smalls but no details as yet. As soon as I know more, I will update you.

Lizzie Kate Spirit of Christmas Mystery Series

Lizzie Kate has announced a Christmas Mystery Sampler that will be released in three parts starting in September. Shops have to get their initial orders to LK by August 10th. However, we can add to this order until they ship their first shipment on September 1st. I am taking pre-orders for those of you who want to be in the very first shipment but this is not a limited edition so order when you are ready or until you see all three designs. As with all pre-orders, please order separately as your overall order will not ship until the stock is available. Currently I am offering 4 kits with the four fabric options available now but will be adding just the pattern closer to release date if you want just the pattern. The fiber packs may be something you want to consider, however, as there is a new Weeks Dye Works fiber being introduced with this release. If you wish me to invoice you via Paypal for Parts Two and Three as they are released (or just send you a link to order online when in stock), please note this in the comments field of your order.

GiGi R Designs

I continue to stock this popular designer's wonderful designs. I have been with GiGi from the time I opened my shop - almost 8 years ago. So, if you are looking for any of her designs, I probably have it in stock or can order it for you. Here is a link to view all her designs.

Bargain Bin

What can I say? The Bargain Bin remains most popular with discounts ranging from 10% to 40% but do know that the deeper the discounts, I typically just have one or two in stock with no reorders. The purpose of the bargains is certainly to give you the best price I can offer but also to continue to move stock out so I can bring new stuff in. Click on this link to view the Bargain Bin and once you get to the page, look to the left side of the page for the various discount levels.

Flash Sale Tote Bags

I have just a few of this wonderful tote bags in stock - quite large, well made and priced below what I paid for them. A great gift idea for you or a stitching friend. This is for domestic orders only - due to weight and size, international shipping will be higher than just sending a normal order.

New Items

As I wrote earlier, the designers have been busy this summer and since my last newsletter, much has been added to the New Designs Category.

Fall Market Harvest Hop

This popular show will launch for shops to order September 7th-12th. This is a wholesale show only but I will be posting all the new designs for your review and ordering. So check back from time to time as I will post the new releases as soon as the designers let us know what they will be offering in the show.

Thanks again for your continued support as I know you have many options to purchase your stitching supplies but I continue to work to offer an easy to use website where you can shop at your leisure, simple checkout with credit cards or Paypal and as quick shopping as possible.

Happy Autumn Stitching, Marty
