Primitive Floss Club winner today

We have a winner drawn today for one month free in the Primitive Floss Club. These are limited editions that I will be dyeing each month, all new colors, perfect for samplers and primitive stitching....or any stitching!
This new line will also have the DMC conversion on each tag if it is possible. I list the closest match. There are times there are too many shades in a skein to match it to a color. 

The winner will receive a box of 12 skeins, 20 yards each.
The name drawn was Jeanne Hammell. Congratulations Jeanne! Please email me and give me your address. nbelgian@aol.com.

Stay tuned for the next give-away! You all know how much I love to share......remember....It's only what you've given away that you can take with you.

Primitive Floss Club invoices go out today

The invoices for the Primitive Floss Club will go out today. You can join any of the three clubs at any time during the month. I had a gal join yesterday for the Ultimate Collection of 135 skeins. This is a great way to add to your floss at a reasonable price. With 5 skeins you get 1 free and with the box of 12 you get one free skein.

Next week I will post a picture of the floss for these new clubs so you can see what the members are receiving. It is dark and rainy today so it isn't possible to take pictures.

I was asked by a follower what have I been up to.....floss of course! Dyeing all new colors for the Primitive and Limited Editions.
After I get a couple months ahead on these new colors I can get back to a couple of patterns I want to do. And experiment on a couple of fabric covered boxes I will be making out of heavy chipboard and mat board. I am amazed at the strength of the box after putting two fabric covered layers together. And I am dyeing some great cluny lace trims to go on and in the box. I will show pictures when it is completed. I think I will do one with a stitched top and the other with a fabric covered top and a few embellishments on it.

I am also working on a custom pattern for the traveling museum for the It's  a Wonderful Life movie. I will do two patterns for that one. A simple pattern like the one in the movie and a fancier one for me to hang on my wall. It is my favorite saying:
You can only take with you that which you've given away.
I like to hang things on my walls that mean something to me. Favorite antique mottoes, my own stitched sampler patterns and quotes and sayings that are a part of who I am and hope to be.
I am a bit eccentric....ok, if you have been to my house I am very eccentric! lol    Gotta love who you are.

So this should answer the question of what have I been doing lately. I don't post as often as I should but I put in such long days trying to get everything done and time gets away from me. I promise to post more frequently and add more pictures of my current projects.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Valentine's Day Floss give-away, enter now!


                     Wilt Thou Be My Valentine?
I was looking at floss this morning and trying to decide which box of floss to give away for Valentine's Day. Reds are perfect....of course.....but I am sure there are others who don't use a lot of red.

Then I thought I would give the winner their choice......perfect solution.

If you like Red and Cream then this set is perfect for you.
Red-and-Cream-Collection-hand-dyed-floss-GIFT-BOXED-12-20-yd-skeinsFour different cream colors and 8 reds in a gift box with a bow and a card.

But if you like softer primitive sampler colors...then this set is perfect for you.
Grandmother's Favorite Quilts. Each color has the name of an old fashioned quilt pattern.

Did you receive your floss club invoice?

Paypal has been having trouble for 4 days. It won't let me print shipping labels and gives me an error code. After talking with Paypal they told me they are aware of the problem and will get it ironed out soon.

A customer sent me an email this morning as she has not received her floss club invoice. When I tried to resend it I get another error and try again later. If you did not receive your invoice please email me. Most of the members have paid so there are just a few left.
As for shipping....if they don't get it ironed out by the 5th I will hand write labels and take them to the post office so I can get tracking numbers on each one. What a pain.....

So please let me know if you did not receive your invoice. Thank you.

A New Year, new projects, new Floss Club

The first day of the new year........a fresh start for all of us. Lots of projects planned as I am sure you all do the same. No resolutions really, just projects, fun things to do, and lots of floss!

I will be sending out the invoices for the Floss Clubs today. Remember you can join at any time during the month and receive the current selections.

I will be sending the invoices for the new Primitive Floss Club on the 15th if you missed that post. Scroll back a few posts, same details apply as the other floss clubs.

I will try to post some pictures after everyone receives their floss. First I like them to have the surprise of opening their new colors.
And speaking of new colors, I think my dye pot will be busy all this month. I will be dyeing the limited editions for next month, primitive colors for the new club, and I have a huge amount of floss to be dyed for the Kansas gals to card for me. I should take a minute to tell you how much I appreciate all their hard work carding all these boxes of floss for me. I now have Eves!!! I send out boxes of huge hanks of floss and the elves card it and send it back in neat little bundles of cards. This has helped me tremendously and I am so thankful for all the work they do. Way to go girls! Just think...if I move to Kansas I can drop off the boxes....and get to visit too. Doesn't get any better than that.

I hope we all have a great year...filled with good things, lots of stitching, surrounded with good friends and loved ones.

                                  Happy New Year!

Primitive Limited Editions Floss Club coming soon!

I survived Christmas and am packing the floss for the Limited Editions and the Ultimate Floss Clubs. Invoices will go out on the 1st.
You can join in any club at any time. I want to thank you for the great response I have had for the clubs.

I am always adding more....you know me well by now! And I was thinking that I get so many compliments on the Primitive colors...why not do a Primitive Limited Editions? It will be the same pricing as the other clubs. Buy 5 skeins and get one free and on the box of 12 you will be buying 11 and get one free. In the states it is $14.85 for 6 skeins each month or $29.55 for the box of 12 skeins with postage included.
20 yards per skein as usual.

This will be for the 15th of each month. Buy 1 month, 3, 6, or 12. If you pay for 12 months in full you will receive one month free. Quite a deal. Invoices will go out on the 15th.
Yes International  members may join and you can get quarterly shipments so your postage would only be $4.50 per month.

Email with inquiries or to sign up.
nbelgian@aol.com.

I will dye some gorgeous, very primitive colors each month. I will dye a good amount of each color so it will be in stock for at least a month or two if you want to order more singles of a certain color.

I better start warming up the dye pot for a marathon!
Thanks for stopping by!

Free floss each month with the Floss Club

A very busy Christmas season is over, Santa Nancy has mailed all the gifts....time to dye more floss for limited editions.
Have you joined the Floss Club?  Quite a few of you have joined and I thank you.
You get a free skein each month. 20 yards of over dyed floss goes a long ways. If you purchased that from another company it would be over $10. So if you bought 6 skeins (and you are getting one free) 120 yards that would be over $60 from other companies. You will pay $14.85 delivered as my floss is wholesale to you. The 12 skein box also has one free skein.

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. I can also combine  shipments and mail bi-monthly or quarterly. Maybe get a friend to sign up and split the postage would also 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  month, 3 months, 6 months or be put on auto invoice on the 1st of each month, 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.

I will have new boxed floss sets in early January as I will be dyeing floss all this week. It's always fun to start the new year with new floss colors!

Thanks for stopping by. Time to start on the dye pot.

A few Christmas decorations

I am always asked to post some of my Christmas decorations.....and this year I was so busy I almost forgot. Here are a couple pictures.
I filled my antique cart with Santa sitting in his chair and positioned some of my Motionette elves around him. Their arms and heads move and some of them have lighted candles. They are simply adorable. Some of the elves have a saw or a hammer and work benches. Rudolph's nose is lit and his head turns from side to side. I know....it should have been a movie clip so you could see them all moving.



Santa Nancy needs a bigger house! My next house will have a Christmas room and I will finally be able to display everything. My son says I need the toy store in the Home Alone 2 movie.....I agree!
 
Thanks for stopping by.

I want to thank all of you who took the time to enter each day and leave your beautiful compliments and comments. It is my pleasure to give back to the stitching community.

On the 8th Day of Christmas......Santa Nancy gave to me:

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.
 
The two names drawn this morning were Cathy Smith and Patricia Geary. Please email me and give me your address. nbelgian@aol.com
