A New Year. A New Beginning.
Prepare to be amazed!
NEW EVERYDAY DISCOUNTED PRICING
Starting Monday, January 11, 2016 everything in our store will be 20% OFF everyday. No coupon needed. No expiration date. Yes, you read that right. We have slashed our prices and they will become our everyday discounted prices! That means we probably won't be having any sales in 2016 since our products will be on sale every day, every week. A win for you; less headache for us.
For our astute shoppers, you will recognize that you can still get double discounts through our Customer Appreciation Program that provides you with an additional 5% OFF coupon for every 125 points you earn. Read about our points program elsewhere on this page. As a customer of the Tatting Corner, you are automatically enrolled.
But wait! There's more.
LOWEST PRICE GUARANTEE
We will not be beat on price. So we are implementing a Lowest Price Guarantee. If you find a lower price for the exact same item anywhere online in the U.S. within 14 days of your purchase from our store, we will credit your account the difference in price for that item once we have verified your claim. Please refer to Help > Lowest Price Guarantee for more detail.
FLAT SHIPPING RATE REGARDLESS OF ORDER SIZE
Due to our new everyday discounted prices, we have to adjust our shipping program and we hope you understand why. There is a real cost to businesses to ship orders and that cost is about to increase again thanks to new USPS rates. Do not be fooled by free shipping offers from other stores. You end up paying for shipping one way or another or businesses could not afford to offer it. They generally make up for shortfalls through large volume sales or higher prices.
By lowering our everyday prices, we can no longer afford to offer free domestic shipping for orders that are $55 or greater. Instead, we hope you will appreciate that we will offer a low, flat $6.95 shipping rate for domestic orders of any size! That is a fantastic rate for customers with a large order. Rates for our international customers might see a few changes due to USPS planned increase mid-January 2016.
So, the start of 2016 brings us a new year and a new beginning: Low, discounted everyday prices. Our Lowest Price Guarantee. And a low flat domestic shipping rate.
Be amazed and enjoy!

Customer Appreciation Program
Loyal Tatting Corner customers will now earn discounts on future orders regardless if their purchase includes items already discounted. Previous awards gave discounts only on full-priced items.
All current customers are automatically enrolled in the program. Tatting Corner customers earn one point for every dollar spent, excluding applicable taxes and shipping. For every 125 points, customers receive a coupon good for 5% off their entire order including items that may have already been discounted.
If you have been a long time customer of the Tatting Corner, you may have already earned more than one coupon. If that's you, you can expect to hear from us in the near future. We will send you the coupons you are entitled to so you can begin immediately enjoying discounts on your purchases.
To learn more about this program please visit the Customer Appreciation Program page.
THE DESIGNER'S CORNER
Each month we will be introducing you to a different designer, some just starting out, others well-seasoned and published. Besides an introduction and display of some of their work, the designers will share a free pattern with you! Every order placed during the month will receive a copy of the pattern.
We're excited to bring you this feature. There are so many great designers out there. We want to share their story with you!
If you are a designer, we'd love to tell your story here and display some of your work. Please contact us at Jennifer@tattingcorner.com. Thank you!
Our Featured Designer For February: Kaye B. Judt
Kaye B. Judt is our designer of the month for February 2016.
International teacher, designer, author, lecturer are the titles she can hang her hat on. But the number of folks and students that have learned so much from her gentle kindness, patience and willingness to teach and help are her more important accomplishments. Kaye's breadth of knowledge in the embroidery, tatting, quilting and more is staggering. I have known this designer for over two decades and while that may not be enough, she is the type of kind friend that everyone should have in their corner.
Kaye has three wonderful books that are great technique books: Oh My Stars!, Motifs for Marie, and my personal favorite, A Little O' This, A little O Tat. Kaye is a wonderful teacher and her sharing made the Tatting Guilds so much fun with projects that members were able to finish.
Her background in electrical engineering makes her a perfect illustrator. Readers/students enjoy her methodical teaching methods.
Thank you Kaye for sharing and teaching so many to Tat, embroider and quilt!
In recognition of our designer of the month, all orders during the month of February will receive a copy of Kaye's pattern, Three Star Heart (see image). Look for a link in your order's email receipt.
Happy New Year
Happy New Year! I always love the beginning of a new year...the promise of what is to come. We can start fresh and improve upon the lessons of the past.
I also look forward to the winter snows so that we can stay inside. The artist in me loves to be snowed in with the bright, white light of the freshly fallen snow shining into my studio. It gives me inspiration and time to create and plan.
My children also love this time of year for the hot chocolate they get to drink.
So why don't you too grab a nice cup of hot chocolate and let's go find the needlework you love…or…find a project and order some new thread or tools or whatever you need and let's create some new art that our family and friends will admire and love.
After all, isn't that what creative art is all about?
