2012: New Year, New Shop Updates

We’re just a few days away from a brand new year! With a new year will come new products and updates to current shop policies for GnomeAcres. There’s good news, and not-so-good news.

Let’s do the band-aid approach, shall we?

The Not-So-Good News: Starting January 1, 2012, all prices for hand dyed yarn are going to increase slightly. This isn’t something I want to do, but with the rising cost of supplies, postage and extensive time spent on complicated colorways, it is necessary. This increase really needed to happen about four months ago, but I wanted to wait until after the holidays. I appreciate your understanding.

The Good News: My plan is to add many NEW yarn colorways to the shop in the coming year. I also want to start offering art batts and hand dyed roving. Don’t worry, they’ll all continue to have geeky, nerdy names. :0)

I’m currently working on a new line of Gnominion monsters that will be rolled out in the next couple weeks at the Lost Arts & Antiques shop in Edwardsville, IL, then on Etsy. I will also have them available at the Monroe County Sheep Festival coming up in April 2012.

GnomeAcres is making its’ Phat Fiber debut in January’s “Luxe” sampler box! I’m hoping that this is something I can continue to contribute to on a regular basis.

I have more ideas and plans hiding up my sleeve, but we’ll unveil those at another time. You gotta stay tuned!

Hope everyone has a safe and Happy New Year’s this weekend!
