This will be my last post for a week or so. On Monday I go into hospital for surgery on the Tuesday. So, I had better share the last of my news whilst I can.
Firstly: people are not collecting their prizes which is making life a little difficult for me. If you donated to my fundraiser but have not had your number drawn, then can you please email me with a choice of prize. First come first served..in fact you had better put your top two and I will try my best not to muck it up. Anyone who misses out on a prize can chose a pdf chart from my website..in fact if you would prefer a pdf chart, just email me with your choice of chart. That way everyone gets something!
Secondly...and I am so excited with this news. But let me remind you of the background. I sent of for a single thread from sew and so. One thread, which was sent in a normal letter envelope. Can you guess how much the postage was? £ 5.00 stirling. Yes, I kid you not. I emailed them to query it but didn't get a reply.
So I applied to become a DMC stockist here in the heart of Ireland. And so I will be buying threads at cost as a licensed DMC stockist...with me so far? I researched far and wide, and begger me but someone is actually selling them CHEAPER than DMC provide them!
I have no idea how they are doing it BUT someone suggested I get them from the USA where they are cheaper yet again. But to do that and still be cheaper, I would have to lie and hope VAT and Customs don't catch me. Hmmmm...Customs and Duty. Do I want to risk that? No I don't!
Another person suggested I buy the cones and do my own....hmmm well yes, I could but for two things. First, it goes against DMC's terms and conditions. Cones are not meant to be broken down for resale, and secondly....seriously? Who has that much life to waste? Not me that's for sure!
So I have come up with an idea that I hope you will like!
