Handcrafts Online sale

For anyone interested who doesn't already know, Mary Kathryn is having a "Spring Cleaning Sale" over at her web-shop Handcrafts Online. She's updating the sale page frequently - things coming and going. And she's also offering free shipping on orders over $25. I was turned on to her by Michele and I love love love ordering from her! DH reigned me in this morning when I had filled my "shopping cart" much too full and was toying with the idea of pressing "check out" and entering my billing info. Why did I even ask him about it? ;)

Speaking of Mary Kathryn, she did the most wonderful thing for me. I've mentioned previously about my fear of the LNS. I'm much too intimidated to venture in there just yet. But I want to get started on some of these projects I've collected and I need nice linen for that. So Mary Kathryn sent me a bunch of little linen samples - all labeled with printed descriptions and placed in little baggies. She took her own time to do that and even sent them without a dime from me for the scraps or shipping! It is so kind. I received them in the mail today. And my goodness are they lovely to touch! It is really true that stitchers are some of the sweetest people out there!

I totally understand your fear of the LNS... I once went into my LNS to ask for advice on a project and they told me I "had done it all wrong"...
Isn't it wonderful that there are amazing people like Mary Kathryn out there willing to go out of their way to offer help and advice!! Now please stop enabling, I'm on the wagon... LOL!!

And that is how a conscientious owner runs her business - with fair pricing, excellent service, and the willingness to go above and beyond to help out a customer.

It's easy to see how Mary Kathryn has earned herself such a good reputation, and it makes me wonder why there aren't more ONSes that don't follow her example.
