Not So Fast!

by Marcy Singer of Better Off Thread by Amanda Lee

I know, I know. It's just past Labor Day, and nobody wants to rush the Christmas season. But as the owner of The Seven-Year Stitch, I have to be prepared to put out my Christmas-themed items right after Halloween, so today I'm placing my orders.

Some people even had me order things for them in the summer, so they could stitch Christmas ornaments and gifts for loved ones during their vacations. They're wise not to wait until the last minute! You never know what can go wrong with a stitching project. Poor Muriel sewed her sleeve to hers a while back, and it took me two hours to get her unstuck and her project back where it should be.

And some people need to spread their shopping over the course of a few months rather than do everything at once. So while you might groan when you see those Christmas items come out right after Halloween, please rest assured that we merchants aren't trying to rush into the season--we're simply trying to accommodate our customers.

Please check out the trailer for Better Off Thread, coming December 6, 2016:
