Some of my favorite stores are offering discounts or free shipping but for a limited time during this Black Friday and Small Business Saturday.
Heavens to Betsy is offering an additional 15% off wool above their tiered pricing special. So hurry before all the wool is gone. I placed my order early to ensure I got what I wanted. One color was Donkey Cabbage which is hooked in that square center section, the top part surrounding the light colored odd shape. I purchased some at her rug camp and since I liked it decided to buy yardage of it. There is a little red spark in it which I think plays nicely off the red and tones down the brightness of the other red.
Spruce Ridge Studios is offering a Small Business Saturday discount on patterns, so check that out as she has some great designs. My friend adores all Lori Brechlin's patterns and plans to buy more during this sale.
Also Searsport is offering free shipping to people in the USA who place their order before Monday. It also included frames, etc. So take advantage since shipping isn't cheap. I took this opportunity to order the Townsend-Beeline #10 blade (1/2").
Woolley Fox is offering a 50% sale off a select number of patterns. That is quite a nice sale also.
For you newbies, this is a way for you to save a little if there is something you want. And as far as tips, I'm in the process of binding the Long Island Farm rug and am taking pictures of the process so that will a future post for you to check out.
Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I know that I came home from my son's house with a full belly. And, came home with the dark meat and bones (they only like the white meat) so plan to make some soup. So Thanksgiving turkey is a gift that just keeps on giving. Warm wool wishes.
