This next week Needle Nicely will be celebrating its 30th year in business in Vero Beach. In celebration I've put everything in stock in the store (canvases, fibers, books, accessories) 25% off from October 17th through October 22nd. That's for walk-ins and mail-order, so if you liked something I have blogged about and would like it, just email me or call (firstname.lastname@example.org or 772 567 6688).
And it's a 25% off sale because I am currently paying 6 1/2% for credit cards so technically the sale is 31 1/2% off for credit card sales!! But that's a rant for another day.
And just for the record, I'm prematurely grey and only 35. I started needlepointing at a very early age.
In other news, I received the model back from the finisher for the disco/ornament bag (I showed photos of available canvases and the stitched canvas on April 20, 2011).
As you can see, I decided to keep the cording solid red since we also used it for the purse welting.
And this shows how thick the finished product turned out. Just big enough for a driver's license, a credit card, and perhaps a lipstick!
And to cover other old news, I received an official letter yesterday from the Florida Department of Revenue concerning my August sales taxes. They wanted me to know that they had noticed that I hadn't filed them. Of course, there was no mention that I had paid September a month early. I'm glad I went through the hassle Wednesday of calling and holding while my September coupon payment was correctly credited to August. And, yes, I'm holding my breath to see if my coupon with August crossed out and September written in gets properly credited to my account. Life in the fast lane can be so exciting!
And to mention yet another bummer--Trubey's distributor confused the dates for her trunk show celebrating 30 years of the business she originally opened. So, the Trubey trunk show will begin October 20th or thereabouts. Thank goodness I called Wednesday to check the status. Duh! The show was shipped on Thursday. I assume they sent it by mule train rather than 3-day so I should get it by Thursday.
