A "NEW DAY" for Oley Valley Primitives

Oley Valley Primitives is now alive and well and ready to serve the world with our line of penny rug patterns - finished goods and craft supplies! We are NOT of the computer generation and it has taken us a LONG time to figure this out but we are up and running at www.oleyvalleyprimitives.com. 

We have been offering our penny rug goodies on The Pattern Cupboard.com, in our eBay store, on The Prim Pattern.com as well as The Prim Mart, all with great results. We were way overdue in starting our own website so we knuckled down and signed up with DIYeStores to complete the task. We are still learning and ask alot of questions but their "help" desk it top notch. They have guided us every step of the way.

We have been designing craft patterns for more than 30 years and it is a pleasure to be able to offer our designs to basically everyone on the planet! Recently we has a lady who spoke only Spanish order a pattern. It was a bit confusing as we are NOT bi-lingual as to how we would communicate with her. We used Google translator to convert our email and the pattern into Spanish for her. She was DELIGHTED and said so many times....Gracias, Gracias, Gracias!

We are getting finished products ready now for our upcoming local craft shows beginning next month and the place looks like a bomb hit it! Every table, every corner, every nook and cranny is being occupied by some sort of cratfy body part from arms and legs to heads and tails! Glue guns, fabric, needles and thread are everywhere. Oh well, such is the life of the professional crafter! My dear hubby has had to make some adjustments and his only rule is that I do not pile "craft stuff" on HIS favorite chair!

Yesterday was a FUN day away as I went trapsing over the country side with my "sis" Sue in search of Fall decorations. We came home with a load of pumpkins ~ gourds and mums so now I can sit and gaze out the window at them while designing my latest penny rug and pattern.

Rain is in the forecast today so it is the perfect time to warm up my scissors and needles and get busy.
Have a GREAT day!
