Silk Tidings
December, 16 2013

Dear Silk Lovers,

Take a look at our newly refreshed home page. You will find links to all our newest products in one place, plus other news.

And, notice the tan navigation bar on the left. We’ve updated how you see the expanded menus. It is now faster and easier to see all the choices under each main item.

Worried about getting all your holiday shopping finished in time? We have gift certificates! We can email the gift certificate to you to print and hand-deliver or we can email the certificate for you. And we’ve listed other quick gift ideas for you.

Handwoven magazine January/February 2014 “The Silk Issue” will be arriving soon, if you don’t have it already. We are really excited about this issue! Read more below.

We will be celebrating the holidays (and doing inventory and year-end book work) between December 20 and January 1. We will not have any official office hours but we just can’t stay away (especially before Christmas)!

So go ahead and phone/email your questions and orders. Just know that after Christmas, it will take us a few days to respond.

Quick Gifts

You don’t have to be spinner to lover our Silk Spinner Hand Exfoliant. Chapped hands from winter weather can snag on silk yarn, thread, ribbon or fiber. The natural ingredients in Silk Spinner will smooth your hands and make them ready for stitching, knitting, weaving or spinning.

Fiber Kits are a great gift for spinners. We have three wonderful kits for the fiber-fanatics on your list. Exotic Fibre Fun Kit, Funky Fibers Box and Silk Fiber Fun Kit

Looking for a colorful poster about silk? We have The Magic of Metamorphosis: Lifecycle of the Silk Worm. And it comes with 5 Bombyx Cocoons.
