New Year

Happy New Year to you all! Our January newsletter is out....

Tuesday, December 24, 2013


I want to wish you all a very merry Christmas! This year I decided to try to take the commercialism out of our Christmas here at The Wooly Thread. There weren't any Christmas specials, discounts, or countdowns. There were no urgent emails offering great deals. No daily reminders of just so many days left until Christmas. The results.......we've had our best December ever and just about the best month of the year, so a big THANK YOU to all of you who support us. I appreciate you all so much and look forward to another great year with you in 2014. Merry Christmas and God bless you. Over and out!

Ottobre Pricing

On a somewhat less cheery note :( .... Ottobre has just announced that they will implement a price increase starting January 1st. It will come to about 9.6% more than the current prices. So, if you'd like to renew - even if you are not quite yet due to renew - you may do so before the end of the year and lock in the current price. More details will be in our next newsletter.
