Lots of interest lately in the sparkly yarns! Our silvertoned Stellina yarn, Sheila's Sparkle, will return to stock in two weeks. And, we introduce the goldtone version, Sheila's Glitter, at the end of this week! It is priced just as Sparkle, and we have a good quantity of it in stock right now, enough to go around.
As promised, the price increase will go into effect on March 1, 2011. We will be ready to send printable pricelist revisions next week.
One of my assistants, Sarah, has cut her hours recently as she prepares to go to pharmacy school in the fall. She has been working so hard to get some required courses under her belt, and this semester, unfortunately, has had to pare down her time at Wool2Dye4 to Thursdays and Fridays. Sarah is mistress and guru of all things 'Excel' around here, so that's why the delay in producing a printable new pricelist.
I suppose I will have to get serious and learn about Excel! There is actually a four hour short course in April on mastering the most common formulae. That is the class for me. This date is definitely on the calendar.
We will be making an announcement about a charity project that we've been working on, and we'll start to talk about this sometime next month. The background is that Wool2Dye4 has been looking for an opportunity to particpate in a charity on multiple layers of involvement, a program which we can continue to support as we go forward. So, we have come up with a unique yarn which we will have dyed and which will present opportunities for our customers and for us to give back. Yes! Color at Wool2Dye4. Just one yarn, though, will be produced so we had to look very hard to find just the right color. Here is the address of the one color we have chosen have dyed and which we will carry on the website ... http://www.pantone.com/pages/Pantone/Pantone.aspx?pg=20821&ca=1
It is Pantone's Color of the Year 2011. More about our project next month. But, take a look at the color and ready the description about courage and strength. Just the sort of words we would choose for our charity, ourselves!
