Shop Update Tonight!

imageThere will be a shop update tonight at 9pm eastern.  This is a sewn to order update for my largest project bags, so expect two to three weeks for shipment.  I have lots of slots open, so the listings will stay up through Monday morning if they aren’t sold out sooner.

Thank you so much for your continued support!

Where is This Week’s Episode?!

I have so much to talk about, but there will be no episode this week.  Sub-zero temperatures have led to school closings and job postponements, so finding a moment of quiet to record hasn’t happened.

Of course, this is an opportunity for gratitude.  Thank you so much for allowing me a flexible work flow that allows me to roll with the punches of snow days, and even allows me to harbor the children of friends that are not so lucky!

There will be an update of all Aran Sweater bags Friday 1/9 at 9pm eastern.  I’m never quite sure how many of these large bags to offer, so this update will be sewn to order.  All materials are in stock, and I expect them to ship in two to three weeks.

There are quite a few slots for each color.  If they do not sell out, I will offer them in a large wedge/sweater update on Friday 1/16.

Thank you all again!
