That’s a quote from an old Joni Mitchell song, which has been running thro’ my head in the last couple of days – and you really can’t miss the signs of preparations for the festive period at the moment – not least the bombardment of pre-xmas emails encouraging you to buy … and I’ve just sent one out too ….. and hopefully you’ll find something among my craft stock that will catch your eye!
I don’t list everything on both sites, there is some overlap, but there is a different range on each site. If you want to put together an order that includes items from both sites, you are welcome to order them direct and I will even give you a discount if you do! Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’ve bought in a job lot of mixed coloured merino tops – suitable for felting and spinning – these are just a couple of them which I have put on as auction listings on ebay (85solway) – so go and have a look – they’re all starting at 99p – and if you win a few lots, don’t worry about postage, because I always cap the postage at £2.50 for all packages that weigh up to 750 gms (2nd class UK only), so buy as many items as you want, from any of my listings, and make sure to ask me for a revised invoice so you don’t pay any more.
I also have some fixed price listings for merino & silk fibres.
HAVE SOME SPARKLE ON ME!
As a special offer for Club members, anyone buying unpackaged fibres – there are also some lovely mixed selections packaged nicely enough to give as gifts– will get a bit of sparkle to add to the mix – have a look at the listing for trilobal fibre which is a transparent nylon fibre that reflects back the light and gives a sparkle to any yarn you spin, and can also be added to your felt or incorporated in paper making. I will add a small amount into you package FREE! (It goes a very long way!) Please ASK for this by quoting the title of this blog!
I have also put new items up on my etsy shop – if you’re getting into baking for xmas, there’s a range of silicone bakeware, including really great oven gloves and silicone baking mats, chocolate moulds etc. The cake moulds can also be used for making soap.
I’ve also added a new “About Julz” page so you know who you are buying from, and the Club Notice Board is available for any notices you want to put up, including adverts for xmas fayres, or things you want to sell.
LAST POSTING DATES FOR XMAS – please keep in mind these are the dates that Royal Mail say they can guarantee that items will arrive before Xmas – there’s usually a bit of lee-way in them, and if you do order late, I will do my best to get stuff out quickly, as long as you pay 1st class postage. If you are sending items on as Xmas presents, then please allow the corresponding extra time.

I can also offer overseas customers a special service. If you are buying a present for someone in the UK I will happily send it direct to their UK address, giving you the added advantage of only paying UK postage, and knowing it will get there more quickly than if you have to send it yourself. I will also add a note in the package to say who its from and of course will not enclose the invoice!
I look forward to taking your orders – smile!
Don’t get too frazzled or overspend this year – just enjoy yourself!
all the best
