Moving Along

It's been a busy weekend at Scarlet Threads... Here's the latest!

So, we had a great time at our apron picture taking party tonight.  I don't have the results yet, as I wasn't the photographer... but it was great fun.  Soon there will be new photographs of the aprons on real-live women on the website.

I think we were the only models ever that had regular snack breaks where we ate gingerbread, hot dogs, and a Reese's cheesecake thing.  We also had celery... but with peanut butter.

So, needless to say, these are "real" women photographs... not crazy airbrushed ones.  And we had a great time.


And, Jacob and I picked up our first batch of aprons from the seamstress today!  I can't tell you how excited she was when we paid our first bill.  Ladies - guess what... she made over twice the average local monthly wage from this first batch of aprons she sewed.  And she did that in just about 2.5 weeks!  I don't think she's ever had so much business before.  She's thrilled, and I'm thrilled.  I wish you could be here to see her face, because you, friends, are the ones making this all possible.


I also went to the fabric market yesterday and bought enough fabric to make more of your favorites -- the Savannah and the Phoebe.  I can't believe how quickly they are selling!  We're trying to keep up with you!  We're still working out the exact shipping dates, but sometime this week we will begin selling more of those aprons and they will ship from the states sometime in early December.  We hope to give you one more chance to order those Scarlet Threads products in time for Christmas!


If you want to order either an Anna or a Molly apron and get it sent to you in the upcoming November 20 shipment, you need to place your order in the next 24 hours!  (Order must be received no later than Monday afternoon in the states.)  We're packaging those up in the next day and getting them ready to mail, so you only have a little more time to get your order in.

  1. What a great praise report, Carrie! I sure wish I could've been a bug on the wall when you paid her for the first batch of aprons. Such a wonderful way to bless someone and let them hold onto their pride. God is going to do great things through this organization...I can already see it happening. The sky is the limit!! <>< Still think they need to make matching ones for little kids... I'd snatch one up for Khloe in a heartbeat!! If they'll do a custom order...then have them make me a mini-Savannah! :)
