Day 3 & 4 on our "12 Days of Christmas" and.. Henry Glass Fabrics Blog Hop

 Welcome to Day's 3 & 4 on our "12 Days of Christmas" Online Event!  Did you have a chance to stop over on the website and see all the new goods?  We sold out of a few of our items and were able to quickly restock them today!!!  Also, if you stopped by, you might have seen the most adorable picture of my shop manager, Jodi! Here it is,along with her recipe, too!  It is fantastic!  It is the perfect appetizer for the upcoming Holiday parties!

 Jodi has been with me the longest... She lives 1/2 hour up North and started out having the patterns in her basement.  She would ship a couple of times a week.  That was before the internet existed!  Each day I would have to go to the printer, drop off/pick up and then drive things down to her husband's car daily with my little girls!  I can't believe how much work it was back then... not to mention that Jodi worked for peanuts!!!  Even though there were a couple moments here and there that she did not work with me, she was never far away and recently moved up to be the Manager of BB!  I promised her I would take care of her once I could!  I am sooo thankful she has stuck by my side!  I don't know what I would do without her! 

Not only does Jodi manage {giving me room to breath now!!!}, but she also answers most of your calls and emails.  She also takes care of all the autoship programs, felts wool and is not afraid to step in & help out with whatever needs to be done!  She keeps things afloat for us all!

Today we have a little addition to the event, my fabric company, Henry Glass Fabrics and a few of us designers have came together to bring you a blog hop hosting a "progressive dinner"!  Today is my day on the hop!  I am sharing a "side dish recipe"!  You can also see my new line of fabric, wool & yarn dyes!  Just click the link below and head over and enjoy!



 Ok... Back to our original post...  Yesterday found some great new Holiday kits, pattern specials, gorgeous wool bundles and it was also the start of our "12 Days of Christmas" Puzzle Piece pattern collecting!  Be sure to stop on the website each day to "click and print" a new pattern piece each day!  Once you have collected them all, you can put them together and it makes a FREE pattern from us to you!
I also want to share a sneak peek of some of the offerings from yesterday and today!  

For more fun... head over to our website and enjoy!
See you back here tomorrow!  Stacy

12 Days of Christmas Days 1 & 2 ON NOW on our website!

Image may contain: text

Welcome to our first days of our "12 Days of Christmas" Online Event!  Over the next 10 days, you will be able to enjoy new goods, holiday recipes, a FREE puzzle piece to collect and make into a complimentary pattern from us to you and enjoy decorating ideas and more on our website under the "12 Days of Christmas" category!  You won't want to miss out this festive event!  Let the merry making begin!

First, I am going to introduce you to one of my shop gals!  I will be sharing a bit about them and share one of their family recipes and Holiday memories.  Let's meet Diana!  

Diana is our "shipper" gal!  She prints, pulls & packs your orders!  If she has time, she also ships them!  Not only does she do all that... but she prints all the pattern instructions, getting them ready to be folded/packaged!  Talk about a multi tasker!!!  

Diana is also an early riser and starts her day at 7:30 am!  Even though she is fairly new, and after having her here with us for a couple months, I can't imagine how we did it with out her!  She sure keeps thing humming along for us!

Diana has fond memories of putting reindeer dust and carrots outside in the yard and baked delicious cookies to leave out for Santa with a glass of milk.  The kids would make reindeer dust out of dry oatmeal and glitter and sprinkle it out on the ground.  Since the dust has glitter in it, the reindeer can see it from afar!  For some reason Santa would eat his cookies but there always seemed to be a few carrot chunks left in the yard!  We were so excited that Santa had came!

Here are few things that we kicked off our event with!

Welcome to Day 2 of our "12 Days of Christmas" Online Event! Today we are offering 3 sets of patterns that are half off, a gorgeous Christmas wool bundle, Home for the Holidays "Chalk it Up!", a darling Winter Barn Ornament & more Holiday offerings & cheer!!!!
Today we celebrated with the locals at our "Ugly Sweater" Party! We had soooo much fun! Those who sported their Holiday sweater revived a FREE pattern! Everyone got the opportunity to draw a piece of paper from a bucket to revive a prize! If you were on the "naughty" list... you got a candy cane {at least it was not a chunk of coal!}... If you were on the "nice" list... you received a bundle of wool! The sweaters were fantastic! Kelly and I both wore the same cat sweater! What a riot! We also decked the halls with sparkly garland and Little Debbie Christmas trees!!! We definitely are making this an annual event at the shop!!!!!!

Where have I been?!? Well... working, hosting Santa's Workshop, pulling all nighters {which aren't as easy as they used to be!!} & exhibiting in Houston! We have also been working on a few "secret" projects! We also had Carole, the Quilt Mania/Simply Vintage editor fly in from France for a photo shoot for a book they are publishing for me! I promise... I'm not "slacking"!!! Lol! I also designed a super cute project for my friend Anna, to teach at Sisters, Oregon, during the quilt show! So be sure to watch for that coming out and sign up for her class! The project is themed around that event! I've also been working on 2 more fabric lines! It's nothing but exciting here for us at the Basin! We can't wait to share more with you when we can!!!!

Before I forget, I'd like to say "welcome" to all our new followers & "thank you" to our faithful supporters! You gals are just the best! Thanks for the emails, likes & for sharing your work with us!!! We love our BB community!!!

Our retail shop is getting busier & busier! Today we even had 2 gals stop in to shop when we weren't open! So... we are thinking about being open more & starting up the clubs we've always dreamt of in the new year! IF this is something you would like to see happen... please let us know! It could be hard to juggle- but we sure could give it a whirl!!!!

On the home front... Grace & Hannah are doing great!!! Grace has a timer set on her phone that is counting down the days until she gets her license! Lol! It's not until Feb!!! She's busy dancing, meeting up with friends at Caribou & recently got the cutest hair cut/color! Han is enjoying college! She's spoiled with us being so close! {But- I wouldn't have it any other way!}. She enjoyed her first deer hunting experience with her boyfriend & his family last weekend! {No, she'd never shoot a deer!}. She's going out again with them this weekend! Can't believe she's doing it!!! Lol! On a sad note... we had to put down one of Grace's guinea pigs, Pia. Poor little girl got so sick. We are hoping her other guinea pig, Oreo, doesn't get lonely!!!

Time to wrap this up! I'll be back in action posting & sharing again on a regular basis! I'm super excited!!!! Hope you head over to the website and check out the NEW goods!!!! Don't forget to comment over on our FB Page for a chance to win!!!!! Have a great weekend!!!!
