At the beginning of the New Year, it isn’t unusual to find some online needlework shops with sales going on – sales you might not normally see during the year. Here’s a couple spots running discounts right now, if you’re interested in picking up a few items for your needlework stash…
Hedgehog Handworks has a 15% off everything sale going on. You’ll see some lower-than-anywhere-else prices on Gilt Sylke Twist, at $16.83 / spool. It might be a good time to pick up some of their more recent colors! Also, if you like floche, you can get the 32 yard twists for only $1.06 right now. I am sssoooooo tempted to build up a good stash on this thread….
Dora’s Southern Heirlooms is having a moving sale. Right now, you can get 50% off all silk ribbon. I think the plan is to switch sale items each week, so it might be a good site to keep an eye on.
Country Bumpkin is having a sale through January 9th – 50% off select items. I’m actually really excited about this one, and I will admit I ordered a kit I’ve been hankering for! With the exchange rate and the cheapest possible shipping, it was a pretty good deal. They’ve got magazines, books, selected kits, gift packs, and other stuff on sale. If you’re visiting their site from the States, make sure you switch the currency (on the left side bar) – it makes quite a bit of difference as you’re looking through the sale items!
So, if your New Year’s resolutions included trying out some new needlework techniques, maybe you’ll find something in the above stores to help you out on that. Of course, if your resolution was to resist building more stash… uh…. well. Just ignore this post!
Update, 2017: Obviously, the sales are no longer relevant, but as it works out, these shops are no longer in business.
