Our World of Thread Will Close May 1, 2016
Dear Patrons of Tatting Corner,
We are so very thankful and grateful for the opportunity we have had getting to know and work with everyone over the last 20 years! Unfortunately, all good things must come to end sooner or later.
My children are of an age that demands more of my time than I can presently give. Add to that the stress of being needed by aging parents who are a five hour drive away. We honestly need to be more mobile to do God's will.
And lastly, health issues have given me pause to reflect on my work, my family near and far, and life in general and to consider what matters to me most.
So, it is with a heavy heart that I am announcing my retirement effective May 1, 2016.
I am certain you are wondering what that will mean for your orders, our stock, the website, etc. Let me explain as best as I can through some questions and answers.
IF YOU HAVE A GIFT CERTIFICATE OR DISCOUNT COUPONS THAT YOU HAVE NOT USED YET. WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO THOSE?
Discount coupons will be honored for the next 7 days until April 5, 2016.
Beginning April 5th we will no longer accept or issue discount coupons.
Gift certificates, on the other hand, are like money in your account, so they will be honored up to the last day, April 30th. Please use all of your funds. After April 30th you will forfeit any funds remaining. We will not issue refunds.
WHAT ABOUT OUR PRODUCTS? WHAT IS OUR PLAN?
As mentioned earlier, I will retire effective May 1st. That will also be the day our web store closes. We currently sell our products at a discount which already makes them one of the best bargains around.
Beginning in April, our product offerings and any specials we choose to run will be limited to stock in inventory. Because we will not replenish stock we encourage you to shop early for the best selection.
WHAT HAPPENS TO OUR WEB STORE AFTER APRIL 30TH?
Regarding the web store, unless someone is interested in buying our business, it will close on May 1. Serious inquiries should be sent to Jennifer@tattingcorner.com as soon as possible.
I thank you for allowing us to share our love of Thread, fabric and creating!
