Hi Fellow Stitchers!      

    We have an new face/voice in the shop!  Kristi (aka Murph) started this past Friday initially learning the cash register POS system ... and she had a 'baptism by fire' (meaning we had JUST gotten started when we had a Stitchers Retreat Road Trip arrive in the shop!  For the next couple of hours she was overly overwhelmed with me chained to her side but never lost her cool.  And at the end of the day, she thanked me for that first day!  You're really going to like her .. great personality, sociable and funny.  She'll be working the register this coming week until it becomes second sense.  Then we'll start on more shop stuffs for her.

    I'm going into the shop to work by myself tomorrow .. door will be locked, phone and emails will not be answered, and classic rock will be cranked up!  I have another 5 shipments to open and attach your requests to...as well as bins and bins of orders to be rung through, and more fabric shipments to be cut.   (If you're reading this Murph .. don't worry .. you're going to have TONS left to ring through on Tuesday and the rest of the week .. there's that much to do!)      And Diane will be working on Saturday too .. so there will be 4 of us in the shop .. my fingers are crossing we'll 'finally' be able to get the 'mess' cleaned up!!!

    We finally got our missing Fox & Rabbit shipment of linens from this past March in ... took forever to get linens in from Germany and dyed, then shipped from Australia, and then LOST in our local post office.  Success on Tuesday when we (the USPS and I) found the shipment on a shelf and I brought it back to the shop.  That's what I'll be cutting for you tomorrow.   We also got two shipments (from orders placed in February of this year) from Picture This Plus .. with a note that they are no longer (at.this.time!) dying Lugana or 32ct Linens due to not being able to get the base fabrics in.  So .. if you want either ordered, I can 'try' but they are NOT filling backorders .. just canceling those two fabric types right now.   The other issue is R&R Reproductions .. I cannot get their linens as their distributor cannot get their linens .. and a large amount of 'new coming charts' are calling for R&R.  I can try to find a close substitute, but ... it's going to be hard.  Please understand.   Fibers are also slower to come back in ... and the world wide pandemic continues.

 

So without further delay .. here's what has just arrived at Hoffman Distributing ...

    For those of you asking/anxiously awaiting info about our Camp Stitchalot Stitchers Retreat for 2022 .... I haven't worked with the hotel yet.  There is some 'stuff' happening behind the scenes here at the shop and I'm not exactly sure about scheduling it yet.  IF I do, it will be around the last weekend of March/first weekend in April.  BUT .. because of employee shortages now, I won't be able to have the shop open as well .. just the 'in hotel on the road boutiqu' for shopping.  Too many details still plauging me ... too much stress in the shop still .. bear with me.  I'm thinking/working on it .. just can't do anything .. yet
