Eighth Day of Christmas give-away!


On the Eighth Day of Christmas,  this give-away will be for two charts of mine. Lets have two winners and each one will get a chart. Jingle as Ye Enter, Jingle as Ye go which makes an adorable door hanger or wall hanging. It also comes with a free ornament pack. The birds are holding small brass bells hanging from a piece of floss in their beaks. I display mine every Christmas. As a companion chart I made a primitive Merry Christmas chart called Decorating the Tree. Cute little birds decorating this tree and as a bonus for both charts I am including all the over dyed floss and bells! These are some of my best sellers for that reason. It comes with all the instructions and pictures for a simple...yes very simple, finish. No hand sewing it closed when you are finished. A simple fold over flap secured with a button.

Each day I will tell you what the gift will be from the 1st through the 12th. You can enter each day.

More Floss Club questions and answers

I was talking with a friend this morning, she is also signed up for the Floss Club, and she and I were talking about people who might sign up a few months down the road...how that would work. Good question. If you signed up for the Ultimate Collection you are receiving 6 or 12 skeins a month until you receive the whole collection of 135 skeins. Unless you just want part as you can sign up for as long as you want and cancel at any time. So I would send you the current selected colors for that month and you will continue until you are finished. Others starting later will finish later.

For the Limited Editions it will be different. You can sign up for any number of months (buy 12 and pay for 11) and you will receive the selected colors for the month you sign up. The past colors are available until they are sold out so if you want more of a color you like from the shipment you should re-order right away. I will sell you singles of any collection. If you sign up in March for instance....Dec, Jan and Feb will not auto ship unless you request them.

I will be sending invoices tomorrow for December's shipment if you would like to join. This also makes a great Christmas gift.

Here are the details I put on the original post:

If you have already purchased some of the Ultimate Collection I will also have another option!

Join at any time, just remember I ship on the 5th of each month.

You can join two ways. You can buy 6 skeins a month, 20 yards each and $2.45 each of the Ultimate Collection (*****you will be buying 5 and get one free!) $12.25 plus $2.60 postage. (states only)

***Adding this note....after several inquiries....yes I will ship world wide if you don't mind paying the postage. Maybe get a friend to sign up and split the postage would be a suggestion. Or maybe ship quarterly.

Or you can buy 12 skeins in a gift box $26.95 (***** you will be buying 11 and get one free!) plus postage of $2.60.

*****OR you can receive special limited editions I will dye each month! Same deal...buy 6 (one free or buy 12 gift boxed and get one free!)  $2.45 each. I will try to do theme colors if a holiday falls in that month.

Now....you can buy one each month, as often as you would like or be put on auto, or you can pay for the whole year and get one month free!!!! email with orders. nbelgian@aol.com

Yes you can change from 6 to 12 skeins if you would like more at any time. So many questions coming in!

You can use paypal or personal check. I will be mailing these out on the 5th of each month so I would like payment by the 4th. I can send paypal invoices to you each month if that works for you.


Back to boxing floss. Have a great day!

12 Days of Christmas starting soon!

It's almost that magical time of the year once again.....and almost time for the Twelve Days of Christmas with The Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe. If you have been following me for several years you know how much fun this is. If you are new to my blog you are in for a treat. This is what I do:
On December 1st I announce a prize and the give-away and you post a comment to sign up for it. I do this each day for 12 days. You sign up for each give-away you would like to enter. Don't complain about having to sign up each day...lol...it's part of the fun. If you miss a day simply go back and sign up. Then on the 13th I start announcing the winners each day for 12 days and ending on Christmas Eve. Lots of posting on my part for 24 days but that is part of the fun and sharing with as many of you as I can.

The Fifth Day of Christmas gift will be one month of the Floss Club, 12 of my 20 yard skeins in a lovely gift box. These make great gifts if you are looking for a special gift for a stitching friend. Gift boxes, a month or more of the Floss Club or a Gift Certificate. I will be giving one of those away too so stay tuned.

And now I must get back to boxing floss for the Floss Club. The first shipment will be on December 5th. So much floss to card......I was telling a good friend that I will be counting floss until the day I die. Then someone will ask "How did she die?" The answer will be "She ran out of floss!"

Have a great day!

The Floss Club great response, thank you!

Thank you for the great response to the new Floss Club. A lot of you have signed up for monthly shipments....this will be fun! I love sending goodies out in the mail....and the first shipment will include a free goodie for the December/Christmas shipment. My way of saying thank you and Merry Christmas.

If you have not signed up you can do so at any time. One month, 3,6, 12 or auto shipment. Read the previous post that tells all about the club. You can add or change at any time during the year. One gal asked if she could change from 6 to 12 skeins if she wanted to and the answer is yes.

Email with any questions you might have. I replied to several customers in Europe....since postage is high at $13.50 for 6 skeins.....you could wait until I have more Limited Edition floss dyed (unless you want the Ultimate Collection which is finished) and I can ship quarterly for the same price of $13.50. Divide that into three and it is reasonable.

Be sure you have signed up for the Be Ye Thankful give-away as the drawing is on the 22nd. AND you can still hurry and post on the Christmas Floss or Hornbook give-away as the drawing is in two days. Good luck to all who entered. I simply love sharing with all of you when I can. I am putting some great gifts together for the Twelve Days of Christmas. You don't want to miss that! The time is going by quickly and I try to enjoy the holiday season each and every day. So many friends...so many gifts to share....I wish I could send each and every one of you a gift and I hope to do that over time.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Join The Floss Club!! And enter a GREAT give-away!!

I have had many requests over the past few years for a Floss Club. I thought I might be a bit too busy for this....and then I thought it would be a great way to share with more stitchers...so here are the details!
Two choices for floss!


I gave this a lot of thought. I know many of you would like the Ultimate Collection of 135 skeins (I will be adding more colors next year). It is $333.  With DMC conversions on each label. Lets do this:

If you have already purchased some of the Ultimate Collection I will also have another option!

Join at any time, just remember I ship on the 5th of each month.

You can join two ways. You can buy 6 skeins a month, 20 yards each and $2.45 each of the Ultimate Collection (*****you will be buying 5 and get one free!) $12.25 plus $2.60 postage. (states only)

***Adding this note....after several inquiries....yes I will ship world wide if you don't mind paying the postage. Maybe get a friend to sign up and split the postage would be a suggestion.

Or you can buy 12 skeins in a gift box $26.95 (***** you will be buying 11 and get one free!) plus postage of $2.60.

*****OR you can receive special limited editions I will dye each month! Same deal...buy 6 (one free or buy 12 gift boxed and get one free!)  $2.45 each. I will try to do theme colors if a holiday falls in that month.

Now....you can buy one each month, as often as you would like or be put on auto, or you can pay for the whole year and get one month free!!!! email with orders. nbelgian@aol.com

Yes you can change from 6 to 12 skeins if you would like more at any time. So many questions coming in!

You can use paypal or personal check. I will be mailing these out on the 5th of each month so I would like payment by the 4th. I can send paypal invoices to you each month if that works for you.

********LETS DO A GIVE-AWAY!!!! I THOUGHT THIS WOULD BE A PERFECT GIFT FOR ONE OF THE 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS I HAVE EACH YEAR. YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS THIS. I will give one free month to a lucky winner. 12 skeins boxed!

This would make a great Christmas present for a friend who loves to stitch.

If you would like to purchase a month as a gift for a friend I can do that too. I can send the floss direct with a gift card or send them a Gift Certificate for a free month.

***Rules to enter the give-away:
Same as always. You must be a follower. Click to follow by Faithful Friends. You must post a comment here.

****Post on your blog, Facebook or stitching group and get 100 more entries!

Drawing to be for the 5th Day of Christmas. I will show this drawing on the 5th and then after the 12 days are announced I start doing the drawings for each gift. Drawing to be December 17th.
Good luck to all who enter.

Be Ye Thankful Give-away! Enter Now!!!!!

It's almost that time of year here in the states......our traditional Thanksgiving on the 4th Thursday in November. The date this year is the 24th and I am having my usual Be Ye Thankful give-away to celebrate. Since the original day was a celebration of the harvest....I like to celebrate a harvest of friends! And I am very thankful for each and every one of you.

I thought I would put together a nice selection of goodies to surprise one lucky winner. So you will have to wait and see what it is! These surprises usually have a value of $50 or more as I like to include a nice selection. You can suggest what you would like...floss, fabric (linen or aida), charts, motto kit, etc.....but first you have to tell me what you are thankful for!
 I am always thankful for many things....my wonderful family that surrounds me.....the blessings I have received...and the friends and followers I have met which is the best part of this business. From all over the world I have met the nicest group of people that I enjoy chatting and sharing with.


The give-away will be on the 22nd of November as I will be very busy on the holiday.
Rules: You must be a follower at the right. Click to follow by Faithful Friends.
You must post a comment here. Post on your blog or facebook and get 100 more entries. We want lots of stitchers to have a chance to win a gift. You must check back to see if you are a winner as I don't have time to hunt you down! lol

Thanks for stopping by...and good luck to all who enter. Let the comments begin. So tell me what you are thankful for. I am thankful for.............
Nancy

Remember......All you can take with you is that which you've given away.

New Christmas floss and a give-away, enter now!

I know Halloween is just around the corner....but as I sit in the middle of dozens of boxes of Christmas decorations (so I am done by Nov 1st!)......I thought I would show the new Christmas floss and mini floss minder hornbooks. These will be available this week directly from me before I list them on ebay. I like to give my followers a change to get them first. You still have plenty of time to stitch those Christmas ornaments.

Lets start with the floss. 12 new limited edition colors...I added a deep blue this year to the line.  I also have a free gift with the first 40 (updated from 20) BOXES PURCHASED AS I HAVE PUT MORE CHARM SETS TOGETHER. I found some adorable Santa and reindeer sewing charms and fell in love with them. I will be selling these sets for $3 but they are FREE with the 20 first boxes sold. Lovely detail on these charms. I could only find the Santa in the silver tone....wish I could have found it in the bronze tone as I did find the reindeer in bronze.


These boxes are $29. nbelgian@aol.com

Now I have the hand made mini hornbook floss holders. They measure 2-1/2" x 5". 3/8" thick. The design is etched in the wood. I did them in Poplar and Oak and did a clear finish on them. I did stain one as shown in the photo but then it doesn't show the stitching detail as much. These are $19 and are available through me. Email with inquiries. If you want yours stained it takes 5 days for the stain to cure. Otherwise it will have the clear finish. Also available plain with no design, you can stain them, put a design or write something to customize them. Tie a ribbon or scissors to the comfort grip handle.




Lets have a give-away! You were waiting for that part I know!
