Closing Shop and Moving On

Well, it is not without a bit of sadness that it is time for me to close my ribbon shop, Creative Trims. This wasn’t an easy decision for me, but something had to give.  There just is not enough time in a day for me to do everything I would like.

As much as I enjoy selling ribbon and all of the other trims in my shop, I don’t have the time to do some other things I would like to do.  I have some Craftsy classes that I have signed up for to learn some new quilting techniques, and a knitting class. I have been wanting to learn to knit as long as I can remember.  And I would love to be able to expand my other shop, The Stitchin’ Chicken. I have so many ideas that I would like to pursue. So after weighing everything, I am letting my trim shop go.
What does this mean for you, my customers?  Some great deals on some wonderful ribbon and trims! I am starting to list some whole spool deals on 3/8″ and 5/8″ dotted grosgrain, one of my best sellers!  Right now is a great time to stock up to do your projects for the upcoming holidays, and stock your handmade items in your shops.  I am offering the 25 yard spools for 1/2 the price of the yardage.  That makes the 3/8″ ribbon $4.50 a spool, and the 5/8″ ribbon $7 a spool.
Each week I will be adding more deals on ribbon spools for 1/2 the price of the yardage listings.  I will be posting the deal of the week on my Creative Trims Facebook page, so make sure you keep an eye out, or ‘like’ my page to see my deals. If you don’t see a whole spool listed for a color that I carry in yardage, contact me through my shop, and I’ll check to see if I have any in stock.  I may miss a listing along the way.
I plan on having the shop closed by the end of the year, so stop by soon to get the best selection of what you are looking for!
Thank you so much for being so great to work with.  And I look forward to seeing you at the shop!

My Shop was Featured!

I was so humbled when Jennifer, over at TheLittleShopof Stitches  approached me and asked if she could feature my Etsy shop, The Stitchin’ Chicken, on her blog. And who can say no to such a request! So it is with great pleasure (and lots of blushing…..) that I thank Jennifer for such a wonderful job! Here is the post!

She even included Creative Trims!  Please take time to go by and visit Jennifer and her store ‘ TheLittleShopofStitches’ where she has some wonderful quilting fabric, patterns and notions for sale.  I know all of you love fabric as much as I do!  And catch up with her over at her blog ‘Stitched Stories’, where you can see what she’s up to! Also make sure you check out her facebook page and ‘like’ her.

I hope that all of you have a wonderful Easter weekend and enjoy time with family and friends.

Thanks so much for your support! And hopefully, I will have some pictures of my monthly quilt along blocks for you to see!
