Drum Roll Please, Introducing Our New Website

We can hardly stand the excitement, so had to share with you all the fun details about our brand new website that launched earlier this week.  Check out the new site online HERE.

Check out all our new customer-friendly features below:


First and Foremost:  Search Box!

One of our most exciting updates is the ability to search the site.  

Looking for a particular pattern?   Type the name of the pattern in the search box and it will come up. 

Looking for a specific color number of wool felt?  Type in the number and it will pop up.  

Looking for a project with sheep?  Type in the word sheep and all our patterns with sheep on them will pop up.  

You can also use the two little drop-down boxes below the Search box, to pull up a list of Brands and Designers.  That will bring up all the products that we carry in either category!


Filtered Search:

Fine tune the choices on many of our popular categories to narrow down your options.

On the Wool Fabric OR Wool Felt Central pages, you can click the boxes beside the color you are searching for and it will narrow down the offerings to just that color.  



On our Patterns page, you can filter by the type of Pre-Cuts the project takes.  This way if you have a charm pack you are wanting to use, you can filter by Charm Pack patterns and see the patterns that we carry that use a charm pack.




Create an account:

You can now create an account to keep a history of your online purchases.  Login when you shop and you can check your previous orders and create a wish list of items you'd love to add to your collection.  (For local customers, just a note, the online account will only show your purchases made through our website -  it won't show purchases made in our physical store).


Shopping Cart:

Our cart now displays photos of the products you are ordering.  No more guessing what you've added to your cart!


Quantity on Hand:

Each individual item shows how much of that product we have in stock.  Now you'll know how much of that sought-after fabric we have available.  Just a note, though, fabric sometimes isn't an exact science.  The site rounds our yardage to the closest yard, so sometimes we may physically have just a little more or a little less than the site shows.



Wool Felt Patterns:

Our Wool Felt Patterns Department is one of our largest and most popular product groups.  Now you can choose to view either the ENTIRE group of our over 300 wool applique project titles HERE

OR you can choose to narrow down your search and view by either:

Wool Felt Patterns by Designer, such as Cath's Pennies, Penny Lane Primitives, etc



OR

Wool Felt Patterns by Style, such as Penny Rugs/Banners/Ornaments and more!



There's tons more features that we know you'll love.

Head on over and check out the new site.

After you've had a chance to look around, leave a comment below letting us know what you like best about the new site.  You can also post a comment on our Facebook page HERE.

We'll draw from the comments on this blog post and on our Facebook page from a $25.00 gift certificate on April 27th.

Wow Your new site is awesome!! The colors are soft on the eyes, it's so very easy to search for items now. I love how each fabric link shows how much fabric is left in stock and that we have the 'option' to search by fabric designer. Way to go, in two words "LOVE IT"

I really enjoyed your website even before the upgrades. Your changes make quick peeks more efficient.
Especially useful is how you've broken the directory into the specialty departments, i.e. designers, manufactures, etc. This makes looking for a favorite easy.
Another feature I appreciate is the photos on the bottom of the page that allow me to go back quickly to items I just viewed.
Keep up the good work, I hope to visit Nebraska someday & your store!
