holy moses...



...i know i've been expecting this. i know that. but opening these boxes and seeing my name on the cardboard bolts. well, oh my, that was something else. it suddenly hit me. my fabric. MY FABRIC!


now i've just got to actually, you know, sell it. because that's also my job. so if you want metres of this, please email me. i've also got 4 layer cakes, 4 jelly rolls and 12 charm packs...(& i know the pre-cuts have flown in stores) so if you can't wait for me to put all these in the shop which i will do as soon as possible (but you know these children, apparently they want to be fed and all sorts) email me with your paypal email address and i'll get an invoice to you today. later. when the kids have been fed and watered. my email address is luciesummers{at}yahoo{dot}co{dot}uk it's all been listed right HERE!

i can't compete with the amazing prices in the states, i wish i could. but import duty, VAT etc etc all that boring stuff takes it's toll. so these are the prices:

SUMMERSVILLE:

FQs: £2.75
half metres: £5.50
full metres: £11.00
charm packs: £9.00
jelly rolls: £29.00
layer cakes: £29.00

MATCHING SOLIDS:
FQs: £1.75
half metres: £3.50
full metres: £7.00

all plus postage...

For a meter / yd of fabric over here in the States it's $9.99 (or 6.18 sterling) plus tax so really your prices for the UK are very decent, reasonable and comparable since they are being sold overseas. Don't feel bad over your prices!

Can't imagine how amazing that must feel, well done!! And I think those prices are really reasonable, remember if we in the UK bought from the US we would have to pay postage on top. And the designs are so gorgeous that they are well worth it! Rachel x

Aren't the Blue & White Tape boxes the very best? I can't wait for mine to show up (Friday?). Can't wait to see your next line. I still need some ABC's.
