Final Decision on floss club bonus prizes for 2018

Thank you for your input on my idea of the floss club bonus prizes/give-aways for 2018.
Here is what I had posted:
I was thinking of new give-aways for 2018......and I think I will start with a bonus present in the floss clubs. I will dye some special colors each month and 6 skeins will go to one lucky winner. I will put everyone's name in the hat and draw a winner each month. I will dye new colors each month. The present will then be included with your floss shipment. I thought this would be a nice way of saying thank you to my floss club members. All of the floss clubs will be included.

Here is what I decided:
I will draw a winner for the Limited Editions Club each month and the Primitive Limited Editions each month. (The Ultimate Club was closed last year)
 I will dye 12 custom colors each month. If you receive 6 skeins a month you will win 6 skeins. If you receive 12 skeins a month you will win 12 skeins of my special dyed floss.  One winner in each club each month.
I will make a list of members for each club. After you win I will mark your name off the list so others get a chance to win. I have drawn the same name in give-aways that were close together before.  If you win in one club you can still win in another. Many of you are in two or three clubs. I wanted to make it fair so everyone has a good chance of winning.
If you are in the Linen Club I will send 6 skeins if you receive 1/8 yard each month and 12 skeins if you receive 1/4 yard or larger each month.

I will draw names on the 1st and announce the winners. But....you will have to wait to see your surprise floss! I know, that's mean. lol I will then wait a week and show everyone the special colors you received. I have not decided how many of each color I will dye and when they will be available if anyone wants to purchase them. So many things to think about.

So there you have it. Special give-aways for my loyal customers that I appreciate so very much. 2018 will be lots of fun! Of course I will have other give-aways that anyone can enter. We always have lots of give-aways around here. Sharing is what it is all about. The best part of my life.
Remember.......
All you can take with you is that which you've given away.

I thought this would be a nice way of saying thank you to my floss club members. All of the floss clubs will be included.

So.....do you think it should be a surprise as to who is getting the gift each month or shall I announce the winner? Tell me what you think.

I guess I better get to it and dye some new floss!

                                                       The Floss Queen

Join us in 2018 for the Floss and Linen Clubs

In the hustle and bustle of all the Christmas activities I am dyeing fabric and floss for 2018.
The linens will be darker and more dramatic in January. I did a lot of light mottled antique looking fabrics the past few months and now I will switch to more dramatic fabrics. I will show some after Christmas if you would like to order. Or join the Linen Club. You can do auto ship each month with the size and count you like or sign up for the number of months you would like.
28, 32, 36 and 40ct is what I dye.
1/8 yard is $9
1/4 yard is $19
1/2 yard is $39
plus postage.

The floss clubs for 2018......I have decided to continue with all 12 months next year. Come join us......
Limited Editions and Primitive Limited Editions
6 skeins is $14.85
A box of 12 skeins is $29.55
Join for as many months as you would like or do auto ship each month.

Starting in February most of the floss will have heavy variations in them. A few will have it in January too. I did a lot of subtle colored floss last year and now I will change to more drastic variations.

I send Paypal invoices on the 1st (or you can mail a check) and need payment by the 3rd as I ship orders by the 5th. If you have a different date you need to pay, please let me know in advance.

Would you like to gift a friend with a club shipment? Let me know and I can mail directly to them along with a gift card with your message.

I do ship International so send me a message if you want a postage quote. Several of my customers in Canada and Ireland do shipments every other month as I can put two months in an envelope for the same price. It runs from $9.50 to $13.50.

And last of all....if you want to re-new your membership for 2018 please send me an email so I can update my files. A lot of you have already done this and I thank you for your continued business.

Happy Thanksgiving, we have a winner today!!



I want to wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving. A very special holiday if you are here in the states. I think all of us could have a special day each year to be thankful for all that we have.

I am thankful for all of you. Faithful Friends, followers, kindred spirits......who allow me to be a small part of your life and share what I have to offer. Friendship. Giving. Caring. My love of needlework and sharing floss, fabric, designs and trims.

I truly enjoy my give-aways as I get to share with many of you. I wish I could send everyone a present and if I live long enough then maybe...just maybe..... I will get to do just that.

Today we have a winner for the Be Ye Thankful give-away. Thank you to all who entered. The name drawn was Krissy B. Please send me an email with your address. I will also ask Krissy to tell me what count fabric she uses and what  box of 12 skeins of floss she would like from the many I have shown. The rest of the gift package will be a surprise that she will have to wait and see when she opens the box.

Be sure and stay tuned as we approach the Christmas season of giving. The Twelve Days of Christmas are always fun here at The Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe. If you have been a follower over the years then you know what to expect. If you are new.....this will be special. The first 12 days of December I have a different give-away each day. Be sure to enter all of them and then I will begin to announce the winners on the 13th.

Have a wonderful holiday. We all have something to be thankful for......I have all of you!

It's A Wonderful Life movie tribute in stitches

It's A Wonderful Life is one of my favorite movies, especially at Christmas.
I was contacted by the gentleman who has a traveling museum about the movie and he attends showings at movie theatres across the country. He wanted me to chart the saying (and one of my favorites that I have used all my life)....All you can take with you is that which you've given away. He wanted it exactly as it is shown in the movie when George Bailey is in the Bailey Building and Loan and he is talking to his father. I only had a small photo to go from...a clip from the movie. I charted, stitched and framed the piece and donated it to the traveling museum. Then I was asked by the It's A Wonderful Life Museum in Seneca Falls to provide charts for them to sell in the gift shop. This is the theme they are going to focus on this year when they have their December celebration of the movie with original cast members. Three of the young children from the movie attend the yearly celebration in Seneca Falls.
I have named the chart The Gift. An enduring message and a good example of how to live......
I was also asked to duplicate the antique motto that is seen in one the scenes in the movie......The Lord Will Provide. The museum will also carry these motto kits for sale.
It was my pleasure to provide these items for the museum and as soon as they have the charts listed in the online gift shop I will show you the link if you would like to purchase one. The donation will help the museum keep this movie tradition going.

These are the fun parts of this business. Providing mottoes for all occasions.....to remember someone, a favorite family saying, etc. I have done quite a few custom mottoes in the past 13 years. I lost count after 200. Family names and favorite sayings were the most popular. A few cute ones.....a few silly ones that were given to make someone smile. Sad ones to remember a lost loved one. But all of them were important and it was my pleasure to be a part of them.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful day. It's A Wonderful Life!

Floss and Linen Club invoices have gone out today

All of the floss club and linen club invoices have gone out for today.
Please let me know if you did not receive your invoice as I know Paypal has messed that up a few times and I will resend your invoice if you did not receive it.

Change your club? It's never too late, just let me know. Need to add linen or floss? We can always do that before the shipping label is printed.

Have a great day and thank you to all of you who are in the clubs. It is a lot of work but a lot of fun sending out your goodies each month.
December shipments will all include a gift from me!

Be Ye Thankful give-away, enter now!


It's almost that time of year here in the states......our traditional Thanksgiving on the 4th Thursday in November. The date this year is the 23rd and I am having my usual Be Ye Thankful give-away to celebrate. Since the original day was a celebration of the harvest....I like to celebrate a harvest of friends! And I am very thankful for each and every one of you.

I thought I would put together a nice selection of goodies to surprise one lucky winner. So you will have to wait and see what it is! These surprises usually have a value of $50 or more as I like to include a nice selection. You can suggest what you would like...floss, fabric (linen or aida), charts, motto kit, etc.....but first you have to tell me what you are thankful for!
 I am always thankful for many things....my wonderful family that surrounds me.....the blessings I have received...and the friends and followers I have met which is the best part of this business. From all over the world I have met the nicest group of people that I enjoy chatting and sharing with.


The give-away will be on the 22nd of November as I will be very busy on the holiday.
