Hello All! It seems so long since I was last sewing for you guys despite it only being a few weeks, but I put my time to good use and made myself a new capsule wardrobe for 2018 ( my Dragon Ball Z dress is my new favourite item!) and I've also had several meetings with Lisa, my assistant to plan out new ideas and products for this coming year.
There are a couple of things I am really excited about that will start to happen over the next few months.
One thing I'm looking forward to is releasing mystery boxes for sale, after asking you guys about it last year and getting a great repsonse I have decided to offer these to you in limited quantities once a month. These will hopefully be ready for sale by the end of February latest and I will have more information about them closer to their release date, I can tell you that each one will be different and will have a higher value than what you paid for them in them. There will even be some exclusive "mystery box only stock" made for them and I'm even planning on some colaborations with other small businesses for them too!
Another thing I cannot wait to release is a range of "boutique" bags, these will be bags designed by me, made with vinyl and designer and fandom fabrics and machine appliqued with designs also. They will come with their own dust bags and certificate of authenticity. This is something I have been planning for a while but I want it to be right, it will definately be worth the wait!
Something we will be introducing this week is Fabric Friday, we will choose a "fabric of the week" and if you choose to order a custom made item in it you will get 10% off the price if ordered between the Friday and the following Monday, on the Frock It up page there will be lots of new fabrics added too so keep your eyes peeled for that.
Finally the last item I am working on currently is building a Behind the scenes Facebook group for SockJems Creations, this will give group members exclusive early access to certain items before they are made available on our website, discount codes and a chance to suggest fabrics or items to us to be used / made, that way I know that I am working with customers to give you what you want.
2018 will also see us sending monthly email newsletters to keep you up to date with whats occuring at SockJems HQ. Signing up to the newsletters will be a great benefit for you if you haven't and heres a little list why:
- Hear all of the news and deals first before it's announced on our website or Facebook pages.
- We regularly send out money off codes for the web shop through our newsletter which is exclusive to the newsletter and doesn't appear anywhere else (theres a BIG one coming in March ;) )
- New products will be annouced on our newsletters before anywhere else.
- we will send out gift guides at certain times of the year to help you get the most out of your gift giving.
- we will let you know which events we will be attending.
So what are you waiting for? To sign up simply scroll to the bottom of this page and pop your email in the box then you'll be in the link.
I hope you'll enjoy what we have in store for this year
