Well... the new website was launched in the wee hours last night! We've spent several hours today trying to get our email back...something about the new website using a different server messed it up (blah,blah,blah computer talk that doesn't make sense...) Anyway, it's fixed now! YAY!!! We're still fine tuning the site so some little things will change here and there over the next week or so. By the time we're done, every pattern will show which flosses are used on it..stuff like that. I hope that you'll like it and that it will be easier to navigate. We'd started having SO MUCH trouble with our old site (it actually started just randomly deleting products!) It was more than time for a change. This website is using all the new technology (translates to "all the bells and whistles") and we'll be able to add some other things as time goes by. Check it out! If the link from here doesn't work properly just go directly to www.crabapplehillstudio.com.
We'll be working on the blog next and trying to get it up to date. I tend to start computer-y stuff out of necessity and then not know enough about it to keep the workings up to date. NOW I have two or three people here with me who know all about it, so maybe they can drag us into 2012!!!
All of the new releases are on the website... we just got the linen used on A Gardener's Alphabet in today! YAY!!! So we'll start cutting it and filling the orders we have on the waiting list. When we get those filled, we'll put it back up on the website. I ordered fabric today for all of the new quilts so we'll have kits for those in a month or so too!
Browse around on the new website! If you find anything that doesn't work properly PLEASE let us know so we can fix it ASAP!
