The blog has been pretty quiet lately, but that doesn't mean we've stopped moving here at the studio! We've been SO busy this past month!
What have we been up to?
Well, we got a restock of True Colors, Tula Pink Solids, and some Pom Poms and Stripes that we were running low of (well, we got a whole 'nother line of Solids and True Colors!)
Those boxes (and this is only SOME!):
So bringing those up the stairs was fun, as was finding room >.<;
(PS- thanks Martha!! You deserve all the kudos for schlepping 280lbs of fabric up a flight of stairs.)
They look prettier like this, don't you agree? ;)
We also got some new needle minders out- these spooky guys are my new favorites for the season!
And more importantly- we have a second charity needle minder, or needle minders, to add to the family! $1 from the sale of each of these guys goes to the Center for Biological Diversity, a charity committed to preserving our environment for future generations. They're also given an excellent rating by many charity evaluation organizations, such as charity navigator.
And now for some boring/shopkeeping news.
We're a constantly growing and evolving shop, and every once in awhile we have to re-evaluate our practices to see if they're still working for us. Recently(ish) we had to up our free shipping threshold, because the math just wasn't coming out on our side. I mean, don't get me wrong- I/we love this shop, but, we gotta pay for the fabric, keep the lights on and the rent paid (no small task in NYC) and eat. The new free shipping threshold is $75.
Also, free shipping pays for free shipping for one order. If you have two orders in one- IE ship now goods and a preorder, we'll charge you shipping for the least-expensive-to-ship order, and use your free shipping for the rest. Similarly, different preorders coming in in different months may also accrue an additional shipping charge, depending on how/when the lines ship to and arrive with us.
Here's the higher math part- if the total of your preorder (the actual total, not the deposit alone) is $75 or more, we won't charge shipping. So if you have two preorders is one order, with a deposit of each line totaling $37.50 or more (so your order total would be $75) you'll get free shipping on both preorder lines, even if they ship separately. (We know this is kinda complicated, feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions regarding your order or before you order!)
Well, we did just get a smaller delivery that we thought you'd like to see, too.
I mean, just maybe. ;)
And look at the selvedges!!!!
Projects and a show-and-tell (an augmented version of Tula's free Center Stage Pattern from All Stars) will be forthcoming! In the meantime, check us out on Instagram (@thetrendylittlegeek) for a video about how to fussy cut without completely messing up your acrylic templates' corners and rotary blades in the process!
Well, that's everything for now- good, bad, exciting, boring, and otherwise! See you around!
