Sales of Kits and Patterns

My Four Queens

Sometime in the summer of 2019, I hope to bring back all four queens for people who wish to fill in their series.

 

If you would like to be on my list for notification about the queens, please email me:

2019 Heart Sale: Suspended

I usually have a hearts sale in February each year.

In 2019 I have suspended the sale.

 

Likely the next time I will offer anything for sale will be in the summer of 2019 when I offer the four queens one last time.

 

 

Selling My Kits and Patterns

I only sell kits and patterns at certain times during the year.

You can find out about my sales by signing up for my Newsletter.

 

How to Follow my Sales

Sign up for my Newsletter.

To sign up, email me:

GayAnnRogers@me.com

 

Will your email in box be flooded with Newsletters?

No, I send out a Newsletter a few days before a sale and another sometime during the sale. That's it.

 

 

When do I usually have sales?

Usually three times a year: in February, in May or June and in mid-October.

 

In 2018 I had an extra sale of the Last Queen in August.

 

In 2019 my first sale will likely be in the summer. I need to spend the spring reconstructing my website.

 

 

Requesting Old Patterns

What about old patterns, how can you get the one you want?

If there is one you have your heart set on, email me: GayAnnRogers@me.com

I won't promise it, but if I receive other requests for it, I will try and bring it back.

 

 

Who are my Four Queens?

Elizabeth 1,

Catherine the Great,

Eleanor of Aquitaine

Queen Victoria.

The series is complete.

 

What if you missed one of the queens?

Will you have a chance to complete the series?

If all goes well and I have the supplies, I will offer a limited number of 'make up' queens to people who have signed my interest list.

 

To sign up on my interest list, email me:

Queendom Website’s Own Jargon

 

MacSoph

MacSoph is my trusty little Apple MacBook computer.

 

Actually I have two MacSophs, now. They both work on Queendom Website, particularly during Sales.

 

Back in the late 1980’s DH and I had an SE and an English friend named that computer ‘Sophie Enchilada’ a bit of ridiculousness that stuck and our computers have been ‘Soph’ ever since. As I said, I now have two MacSophs.

 

DH

DH is my 'Dear Husband' who helps me by running Mail Jail. Actually he does most of my bookkeeping also since I am so bad at it.

 

The main thing to know about DH in connection with Queendom Website is the concept of ‘First Thing in the Morning’.

 

First Thing in the Morning means just that to me: it is the first thing I do in the morning.

 

DH has a different concept: First Thing in the Morning can often mean before 4:00 in the afternoon. DH isn’t a morning person.

 

This arises in connection with ‘Mailing Packages First Thing in the Morning’.

 

How Queendom Website Got its Name

Not long after MacSoph and I started our website, a friend said to me, your website is just like your own little private kingdom.

 

I replied, “yes, but not a kingdom, it’s a Queendom and I am Queen.”

 

And that’s why I usually have an abundant number of crowns and Things Royal on Queendom Website.

 

E-Week

E-Week is my big once-a-year sale usually in mid-October. I have other sales during the year but E-Week is my extravaganza.

 

E-Week is named after Merchandise Night at seminars. Merchandise Night at seminars is an evening when teachers and other vendors sell their wares for 2 hours or so. Now I have E-Merchandise Week, shortened along the years to 'E-Week'.

 

Early Morning Sales

During E-Week, Early Morning Sales happen on Saturday morning at 8:00 sharp California Time.

Early Morning Sales have special items, often limited in number, for a short period of time. If I do say so, they are a special part of E-Week and they are great fun!

 

Mail Jail

Mail Jail is the shipping division of my little business and it is the main reason I don’t have things for sale on Queendom Website all the time.

 

I used to be mired in packages until December; at last year's E-Week I was in Mail Jail until February which was way too long.

 

So I found Jay who has taken over Mail Jail for me. He is so efficient at it and I am delighted that he is willing to do it.

 

Kit Hell

Every needlework teacher knows about Kit Hell. That’s the time before a class when you do nothing but order supplies and then divide them up into kits.

 

Even though I am retired from travel-teaching, I still have a bit of Kit Hell now and again.

 

Bead Mania

If you have ever spilled 10,000 seed beads, you will know about Bead Mania.

 

This is all the Queendom Website Jargon I can think of right now. If I think of more of it, I will post it here.

 

 

Queendom Website's Production Team

Queendom Website's staff includes:

Queen (me),

Queen Consort (DH) who manages Mail Jail and now has become a staff writer,

and Queendom Website's Faithful Subjects, MacSophs II and III (my trusty little MacBook computers).
