News, news, news!
Let me start off with what I know you don’t want to hear, because I’m dinner- before- dessertsort of girl: we have to raise the price on Skinny Bugga, folks. We’ve held off for a long time, but we just can’t put it off any longer. On March 1st, the new price on Skinny will move to $30.
I know. I’m not thrilled about it either, to be honest, but it’s necessary. We’ve been losing money on it for a little while now, and it just needs to happen. We have Skinny Bugga on the website, and we’ll have Skinny at STITCHES West (21-23 February, booths 704- 708, in Santa Clara, CA, BTW) too, if you want to pick some up at the current price. A word of warning: we have Skinny Bugga now, but we aren’t taking any more dye- to- order requests at this time. (Current dye to order requests are just fine!)
Let me answer what we think might be some of the initial questions. The price on Bugga will stay the same- this isn’t about cashmere prices, thank goodness. (It’s actually about the price of wool.) To springboard off of that--- we aren’t raising the price of Traveller, either. This is just for Skinny.
While I’m talking about Traveller, though: Traveller is coming back as Dye To Order next week, folks. NEXT WEEK! I’ll be so happy to have this back in stock. We’re facing Snowpocalypse 2.0 tomorrow, but we’re still anticipating our shipment showing up some time in the middle of next week, so keep an eye open; we’ll be making an announcement as soon as it shows.
We always bring a surfeit of goodies to make up for not- so- great- news, so here’s a little something extra: we’ll be dyeing up a storm of Freaks & Geeks this week--- your favorite misfits are coming back to cause trouble this Saturday at about 12:30 pm EST. Come on over and see if anyone strikes your fancy; we always seem to come up with something strange and beautiful when we just let loose and see what happens in the dyepots.
Be well, stay warm, and keep on making,
