Restocking Schedule Fall 2020

Restocking Schedule Fall 2020

Is there a bag style or colour that you would like but it is sold out? This fall, I have limited resources - both in time and supplies - so I have to be careful to use my resources wisely. I have created a schedule so that you will know when each style will be sewn and available for sale.  I will update the website every Thursday evening at 8pm Atlantic Time.  The quantities and colours that I sew will be variable, depending on resources available in that particular week.

Craft Show & Website Inventory

Craft Show & Website Inventory

Throughout November and December, I will be taking my products to several craft shows. These are busy events and I cannot keep up with inventory management on the website at the same time.  So, all items will temporarily be unavailable on the website during the days while I am at the shows.  Once I am back home in the studio, I will get the inventory sorted out and products listed on the website again. I want to avoid disappointment should you order something that has just sold at a show, and is no longer available.  Sorry for any inconvenience that...
