Create Your Own Short Stack!

Remember these? We call them Short Stacks, sort of like a yummy stack of pancakes, they are smaller bundles of coordinating fabrics from various lines. The one shown above is from Aster Manor and we have 4 bundles in this group! We thought that with the economy how it is, you might want to grab some fat quarters but not necessarily an entire bundle of 40 which can run close to $100, so we decided to split them up. Well, it turns out that even though we created some really cute bundles of of fabrics, everyone has a different idea in their head of what fabrics they want and we've gotten many requests to pick and choose fat quarters from different bundles. Regina and I have thought long and hard about this, because it's a little more of a time investment to let people choose one or two FQs from different bundles because at that point, we'd have to rescan all the remaining fabrics and then change the listing for those bundles. But, we aim to please so we think we've come up with a compromise that will make everyone happy! That is why, if you look at any of our listings for Short Stacks, you'll see that there is a second picture that looks just like the first, except that there are labels on each of the different fabrics, just like this:

That way, if you look at this bundle for Aster Manor and decide you really only like the redish ones, you can tell us that you like AM-2, AM-4, and AM-9. And we'll know EXACTLY which ones you want! But to make this even easier for you (and for us a little) we're going to create a special listing called Create Your Own Short Stack (CYOSS), which will be for a minimum of 6 fat quarters. If you see the three red ones in the picture above and oh, say you see three more in another bundle, you can choose the CYOSS listing and in the MESSAGE TO SELLER section, just let us know which ones you want. Then you can process the sale through Etsy and Pay Pal, paying for 6 FQS (they are all priced the same at $2.75 each) and we'll pick out your FQS, package them up and send them on to you! Easy Peasy! But wait, there's more! If you decide you LOVE the bundle we've already put together, you can purchase it instead and in some cases, you'll even SAVE a little money! (There is a slight upcharge if you choose your own since we have to do the rescanning and reslisting.) The preselected bundles run between $2.50-$2.75 per FQ, so you can definately save some money if you like the entire bundle. So, does that make sense? We want this to be as easy and fun as possible for you! Oh, and if you want MORE than 6 in a CYOSS, we are happy to accomodate you, just send us a quick convo by clicking the "contact craftygirlsworkshop" link on the side of our shop. So click the following button (or look for it in our shop) and start shopping!
