21 June 2012: OK we’ve had a chat and looked at timings and we reckon we can slip in a cheeky wee pre-order after the collection is complete We’ll put in a small handful of items; things we’ve done from Machair and some of the Juliets, we may mess about with the specifics though, nothing is decided yet on what they will be!
5 July 2012: “We will only be using colours from Machair and the Juliets and will be limiting it to a few colours/blends but we’d love to get your feedback on what you’d like to see.
It doesn’t have to be the same pattern in the same colours/ fabric combo as we’ve already done, so for instance there could be a JK Orchid or a SN Ceo – if you get my drift!
Alto Bluebell is already a definite.”
7 July 2012: “We will decide on a few different wraps that we will be making and list them on our website, you can place your order in the few days they are up for, we will be asking for payment in full. Then we will weave and make up the ordered wraps, this may take 3-4 months depending on the volume ordered. Does that explain things? So it guarantees a wrap for you but you do have to wait a while.”
18 July 2012: “The pre-order will not be limited, so there will be availability for all who want items…and ring slings will be available in the models we list. We will aim to have all of the pre-order items shipped within 3-4 months, but please understand that it will depend upon demand. BTW, there are some other roses designs soon to be released….We will leave the pre-order up on the site for a couple of days….the method for ordering will be just like purchasing a normal product…you will be notified of receipt of order as usual. No need to stalk the pre-order, as we will make whatever is ordered, and you can place your orders any time during the two days the pre-order is listed.”
The preorder went live on the website on 19/20 July 2012.
22 July 2012, website: The designs in this category have been inspired by the Machair and Juliet releases and are hopefully going to please most of those that have expressed preferences! I’m afraid we cannot please everyone though. This pre-order will not be limited, so there will be availability for all who want items…and ring slings are available in the models we are listing. We will aim to have all of the pre-order items shipped within 3-4 months, but please understand that it will depend upon demand. We will leave the pre-order up on the site for a couple of days….the method for ordering will be just like purchasing a normal product…you will be notified of receipt of order as usual.
28 September 2012: “Little Machair/Juliet pre-order update: we have mostly worked through the SN FMN and Orchid and they should be ready to ship in about a week. Orchid is looking lovely, can’t decide which side we like best!
Shui Long Celandine will be close on their heels, probably followed by JK Gentian and Ceo, then Alto Bluebell. The Juliets will likely be last to come (this order is subject to change btw!).
There are a lot of wraps being made up so its going to take us several weeks to work through them all and send them out but our plan is to focus entirely on the pre-order once the Autumn Collection is done until everything has been sent out from it before listing any new items (apart from the odd grad).
SL Scarista has been woven and will be made up shortly, probably sending it out about the same time as JK Gentian“
