Well hello there lovely people !
I'm so sorry the blog posts have been a bit sparse lately. The Easter holidays meant it was time for my own family holiday to the USA for 3 whole weeks !! We were lucky bunnies and were able to spend the whole of the school holidays with my parents in Florida. Taking the chance to completely relax and not having to keep a constant check on the website, emails etc was a real treat.
Fortunately for me, I have 2 wonderful ladies that work with me and who were able to hold the fort whilst I was away so I knew that Blooming Felt was in safe hands, and I didn't have to worry about a thing.
But now, of course, it's back to normal. Wading through the pile of paperwork along with a VAT return once I got back was no mean feat. And of course, finding that we were low on quite a few of our lovely goodies meant lots of stock re-ordering. Fortunately, most of the out of stock items have now been re-ordered and should be back very soon. So if you're waiting for any of the Woolpets kits keep an eye on our blog / Facebook page / Twitter feed and you'll be one of the first to know when they're back. We'll also be introducing 2 new kits to our little Woolpets menagere !
So, what other news?
Well, whilst I was away, LOTS of new goodies arrived at Shedquarters. Here's a little taster of what we've added to the site over the last week or so ....
They're all now loaded onto the site (see them in the "Just Arrived" section) and are ready to go to new homes.
Sadly, Royal Mail have decided to hike their prices by a considerable amount. Because of this we will, unfortunately, be having to increase our own prices slightly and will let you know the new prices shortly. In the meantime, take advantage of our current low 1ST CLASS postage cost (a number of companies will try to tempt you to them by offering a lower postage rate, but you'll find that it's a 2nd class postage service which can take up to 4 days to get to you, and of course, we all want to receive our goodies asap don't we, so don't bother with offers like that !). Don't forget that if you register with our website, you'll also be eligible to receive Loyalty Points on your purchases with us. These loyalty points can then be used against future orders with us - it's just our little way of saying "thank you for shopping with us".
Other exciting news is that we have, this month, been featured in both Let's Make Cards magazine - we were the Guest Expert for all things FELT related and there is also a fabulous 2 page feature in Simply Homemade magazine showcasing a number of our felt products. We are very pleased to be partnering with Simply Homemade and you'll be seeing quite a few of our products within their pages over the coming months.
So - where have you been featured ? Do please let us know - we'd love to hear about it
