Design Team call… and punchinella galore!

I know you design team applicants (and those waiting with bated breath to see who will join our illustrious team) are probably thinking we’re making you wait on purpose.  Au contraire!  No, no – we have been delayed in our very official decision-making process by (first) the roof to our inventory room collapsing (thank goodness minimal inventory was hurt or killed) and (second) by our pivotal decision-maker-in-chief taking to her bed with pneumonia for the past week.

I, for one, have been thinking a lot about the new team and all the fun we’re going to make… bear with us just a little bit longer… we’re getting hopeful that we’ll be able to tackle it this week.

Kay then.  Now that that’s out of the way, we are now offering bulk punchinella in a variety of colors and flavors. You can now get it by the yard – and at half the price of our standard variety pack.  Yeah, we love you.  No need to thank us.  🙂

Of course, our punchinella variety pack is still available, as well, which is perfect for getting a bunch of … well… varied pieces rather than big-ass long ribbons.  All a matter of your preference…

In any case, either option is dirt cheap, and if you haven’t had the chance to play with sequin waste, you certainly are missing out!  Check our our Flickr group for some examples – we have several artsy womens who are big fans of the negative-sequin trim.

We also have some specialty shapes for just a few cents more – click the images to go straight to the shop listing.  Or simply type “punchinella” or “sequin waste” into the search box at the top of the page on the right.
