Pardon my absence yesterday — y’all kept us crazy busy with that sale, and there was no time for blogging before my birthday dinner. Thank you for all that craziness, though, and for all of the very sweet birthday wishes. You truly made my day.
Two broader Elsewheres to start. First: I was thrilled to see Jared Flood announce that he would be returning to blogging. Not that he hasn’t been doing a bang-up job with the BT blog the past few years, but I have loved and missed his original blog. So hooray for that. Second: I bought a little bluetooth speaker for my car, now that I have a commute, and have been trying to form a podcast habit. I’m so thrilled Woolful and Knit.fm are out there (and have been happy to sponsor both). I’d love to hear about your other favorite maker podcasts.
That is one impressive mantel

HOLIDAY SHIPPING NOTE: A few people have asked about when is too late for Christmas orders. My answer is it’s up to you. We ship every weekday at Fringe Supply Co., and domestic orders (except oversize parcels) ship via Priority Mail, which is a 2-Day shipment to just about anyone in the US. Orders received this morning will ship today for probable delivery on Monday. Orders received up through Monday morning will ship Monday for probable Wednesday delivery. I say probable because USPS does not guarantee those delivery windows, and of course this is the busiest time of the year. Obviously ordering this morning is safer than ordering Monday morning, but use your own discretion! We’ll be here shipping away as always.
And don’t forget: We have gift certificates!
Happy weekend, everyone!
