Stuff my Stocking Day 12

Today is the last day of my 12 day "Stuff my Stocking" promotion.  For the last day I'm offering something everyone can use, even if they don't sew! Yes, I know. . .there are people who don't sew. . .(but not anyone I know!!)
The Proportional Scale is a simple little tool that makes life so much easier! If you've ever sat at your copier making copy after copy, trying to re-size something, then you need this. Its great for resizing patterns, quilt designs, photographs and more. You can re-size from 1/2" to 50"! All you do is line up the inner wheel (your original size) with the outer wheel (your desired size), and the arrow points to the percentage where your copier needs to be set. Click here for the demo.

For example, the other day I wanted to enlarge an applique motif. My original was about 4-3/4" and I needed it to be 7-1/2". In the past, would have kept making copies enlarging a little each time, till it was too big, and back to reduce a little. Instead, I set my scale to line up me original size with my desired size and I only need to make one copy, saving time, ink and paper. And when you're resizing photos, this is especially valuable!

This is the perfect companion to my Cheaper by the Dozen book, to re-size valance patterns!
The Deal: Retail Price - $10.00
"Stuff my Stocking" Special - $6.00

Thank you so much for participating in "Stuff my Stocking"! You have until midnight Friday night to purchase any of the sale items still in stock.

Bonus Offer! Just for reading down to the bottom of my post, I'm offering you free shipping on anything on my website, today only! If there's anything on my website  you'd like to batch with your "Stuff my Stocking", you can add it for no additional shipping!Offer expires, midnight December 14, 2012.

Holiday Greetings!
To celebrate the twelve days of Christmas, we're offering our first annual "Stuff my Stocking" promotion. Here's how it works:

Each morning, starting with December 3rd, you'll receive an email announcing that day's promotion. We've picked out twelve of our best selling products small enough to stuff in a stocking. If you want to take advantage of the discount, all you have to do is reply to our e-mail or call and say "Stuff My Stocking," and we'll put that item in your stocking bag. (To particpate, you'll need to go to and sign up for our mailing list by clicking on the tab in the upper right hand corner of my home page.)

At the end of the 12 days, we'll ship your stocking at a flat shipping rate of $7.50. We do require a credit card number on file so that you can be charged appropriately at the end of the promotion. Please do not send your credit card information by email. Call us with your information: 518-297-2699. Quantities are limited to our stock on hand; the first emails received will get their stocking stuffed. You will receive email confirmation if we put any items in your stocking.

Feel free to take advantage of one, two, three or all twelve specials - it's up to you! Each promotion is good for that day only, so your "Stuff my Stocking" e-mail must be received before midnight. This is a great way to reward yourself this holiday season, a great idea for holiday gifts, or maybe a great way to have someone else (spouse, child) stuff your stocking; you know you'll appreciate the gift and it will still be a surprise on Christmas morning!

Hi All!
I've just returned from the International Quilt Festival in Houston, and I have two more teaching trips planned before the end of the year. I was in Houston with my dear friend, Beckah Krahula, for the launch of her new book, One Zentangle a Day! (Already on the best seller list!)

This week I fly to Greensboro NC to teach at Sewingly Yours, in Lewisville.  I'm offering a half-day Roman Shade workshop, and my 2-1/2 day Window Treatment workshop, where everyone will make four custom window treatments. I'm very excited about returning to see my friends at Sewingly Yours. The Roman Shade class is sold out, but there's still a spot left in the Window Treatment workshop, for anyone interested. 

The week after Thanksgiving, I'll be in Fairfield OH, teaching at Seams Sew Easy! I'll be offering a trunk show, showing many of my new techniques, and a one day workshop featuring this project, which can be made into a wall hanging, table topper or pillow.  

I want to thank everyone for reading my newsletters and blog. and remember my zipper special for November! Buy any two zippers, and get one free! Call or email for details! 
Happy Thanksgiving!
