Feel free to ask any questions over on the Ravelry board….I’m quite aware I was in mile-a-minute mode this week!

Library Nostalgia Pre-Orders

I love the efficiency and convenience of our local library’s computerized check-out system, but I’ll confess I miss those check out cards!  The satisfying ca-thump of the intimidatingly mechanical date stamp.  The type-written, slightly off center, book title.  The feel of the pencil as you gouged out your name in the thick card stock.  With love for all those memories, I will be offering the Library a Nostalgia bag as a pre-order.

The listings will be available now through 9pm eastern on 7/28.  I expect these bags to ship in 4-6 weeks, but that is variable depending on fabric printers and overall number of orders.

ETA:. Response has been greater than I had anticipated!  I will continue to except orders through 7/28, but those ordered after 9pm 7/25 will ship in the 6-8 week range.  image
