Gratitude Sale 2018

Gratitude Sale 2018

This year has truly been a year of gratitude for me as I have come out of the haze of mourning my husband’s death two years ago. I see now with clarity how life continued without me being truly present. I don’t want to confuse you, I was physically present doing the work of dyeing, but my mind was still in the pain and sadness of grief. What I must say is that I am so grateful that the Miss Babs staff continued its work around me and that you my customers continued being my customers. 

We have been having the Gratitude Sale for many years, but this year is especially important as a way of thanking everyone for being here during this time, and sticking with me while I swam through the fog.

And you have all made a difference in my life. Thank you! The gratitude sale is a small way of saying thank you. May your coming year be filled with wonder and love.

So with that in mind, from now through the end of the year, everything in stock on the website (excluding gift certificates) is 20% off. 

And now, the fine print:

During the Gratitude Sale, all in-stock items (except gift certificates) are 20% off. No coupon codes are needed.

We will begin shipping orders on Wednesday, December 26. Orders are processed in the order in which they are placed on the website. We are estimating that it may take up to two weeks to ship sale orders - but we have all hands on deck and we will be doing our very best to get your yarn to you as quickly as possible!

  • All sales of discounted items are FINAL. Items sold at a discount are not eligible for returns or exchanges.
  • The sale is on in-stock items only.
  • Yarn winding is not available during the sale.
  • We cannot combine multiple orders.
  • The sale is on online orders only. No phone orders will be accepted during the sale.
  • We aren't able to hold orders, so if you are worried about a package sitting on your porch please choose signature confirmation on shipping during checkout.
  • We will be unable to offer the sale price before December 25 or after December 31. In the event that the website incorrectly sells items at the full price during the duration of the sale, we will refund you the difference so that you get the sale price.
  • We’ll do our best to match multiple skeins. If we don't have matching skeins we will contact you with the choice to ship the mis-matched skeins or refund those skeins. In the event that our inventory is wrong and we do not have part of your order, we will refund that skein and ship the rest of your order.
  • While we do our very best to capture colors accurately, everyone's monitor is different and we cannot be responsible for your display settings. Babettes vary from skein to skein and batch to batch, and the yarn you receive will differ somewhat from the photograph on the website. Searching for the color name in the search bar on the website will give you an idea of the range of possibilities for a color.
  • We are unable to help with color selection via phone or email, and we will not be able to answer the phone at all, due to the volume of orders and our desire to get them out in a timely manner. We will have a dedicated thread in our Ravelry group for general questions.

We know this is a reduction in our normal level of service, but these steps are necessary to get the most yarn out to the most people as quickly as possible. Thank you again!

Dear All,

Just want to thank y’all for making life a bit brighter! Grief is a unique part of life—unless you go through it, you cannot move forward (although it’s much more comfortable to stay where you are). We as knitters give you, Babs, a community HUG. God bless….to a healthy 2019. Thanks to all of you for doing what you do 😎🎄💜
