If you want to trade up to the NEW Ault’s Rug Hooking Cutter or purchase our drop-in, lift out cutter heads, we will take your old machine in on trade. We can do this by mail, phone or in person. Phone 4190347-9957 for details.
OH, BTW, our cutter heads also fit another popular wool stripping machine. We cannot mention the name but if you are a rug hooker, you know the machine we are talking about.
We all know there is a lot less rug hooking that happens in the summer. Not everyone slows down or quits for a while but many do. We are posting this to tell you of our current summer hours for the store. This does not effect our internet customers since we read email and receive orders every day. We ship internet orders as soon as we can, generally that or the next day. If any of the following changes effect your trip to our store, please call us to set up an appointment.
July 4th, Independence Day Schedule-We will be closed Friday and Saturday July 1 and 2, 2011. The FREE Hook-in for the 2nd has been cancelled.
The Month of August-Please set up an appointment with us by calling 419-347-9957 or take your chances that we might be in the store.
Labor Day Hours-We will be closed Thursday, Friday and Saturday, September 1, 2 and 3, 2011. The FREE Hook-in is cancelled for Saturday September 3rd.
Our regular hours until posted otherwise are : Thursday and Friday 1-4:00 p.m. and Saturday 10:00 a.m. -2:00 p.m. Always remember you can set an appointment to come to the store at other times if the above hours do not fit your schedule.
Wool At 1/3 off our regular price for summer purchasers!!
If this summer is like those of the past, we expect business to slow down a little for the next few months. Maybe you won ‘t be hooking as much because of the hotter weather but you can catch some HOT deals in our wool department. We have some wool on bolts for less than $19.00 per yard, with a one yard minimum.
For June and July our regular wool here in the shop is greatly reduced to around $24.00 per yard, with 1/2 yard minimums. This is the same wool we have been selling here in the store for about $36.00 per yard. So, stop in soon and get wool for 1/3 off our regular price.
Remember, we do have swatch kits available if you cannot get to the store in Shelby, Ohio. Swatch kits sell on our web site, www.aults.com ,for $5.00, including shipping. After you look over our newest assortment in the kit you can order directly from us. We have a 1/2 yard minimum on orders you place from the kit.
If you’d like to talk about our swatch kit or any thing else related to rug hooking please feel free to call our toll free phone at 866-659-1752. Hope to hear from YOU soon.
If you can travel a little ways this Saturday you might want to participate in our FREE hook-in. It starts any time after 10:00 and ends whenever you decide to leave (not later than 4:00). Bring a project to work on our purchase a new pattern and start hooking. Gloria will be in the shop to help you do some color planning and Tammy and Julie will be around to help you also.
Our shop is located at 49 East Main Street in Shelby, Ohio, 44875. Phone-cell 419-347-9957
We have had lots of comments and questions about how I am doing with the recovery from triple broken pelvic and broken hip. I am still on a walker but about reday to get to use a crutch, then a cane and then hopefully normal walking. This has, however, slowed down my shipping of orders. I think I am about caught up on shipping cutter heads and our new Ault’s Wool Facbric Cutter. Should finalize those orders yet this week. Then we hope to get back onto our regular schedule of filling machine orders the week they come in.
On another health note, Gloria goes to Columbus late next week for the trial installation of a neuro-stimulator to see if it helps with her pain issues. Please pray that this procedure helps and that they can soon install the permanent, totally enclosed one.
Big, Big Woolen Sale Coming Soon
We are getting ready to announce a big discount on all of our in-stock woolens. We should have done this weeks ago because the shelving units for holding bolts of wool are full and overflowing.
Please watch this site in about the next 10 days for the announcement.
Ault’s Wool Fabric Cutting Machine and Cutter Heads
Regarding the Ault’s Wool Fabric Cutter machine, we have shipped out over 30 machines and about 75 cutter heads since the first of the year. We plan to be up to date on shipments by this time next week. Then we should be able to fill orders quickly.
FREE Shipping on Fraser Cutter Heads
Here is another price reduction announcement. For a limited number of Fraser cutter heads we will give FREE shipping if you call us toll free at 866-659-1752 by 5/15/2011. We currently have all Fraser sizes in stock. If you need a new or replacement Fraser cutter head, don’t miss this change to save $7.50 shipping. Remember, this deal only applies to called in orders.
Hello All!! This is just a note to alert you of a fall I took two weeks ago. I have broken hip and pelvis bones. I am restricted to getting around the house with a walker and cannot put any weight on my right leg or foot. Expect to be this way for 6 to 7 weeks. This means I am also having trouble getting to the store to ship items or to meet with customers. And, Gloria is only availbable to wook in the store for a small amount of time because of her back issues. Looks like she may be approved for installation of a spinal cord stimulation device in the next few weeks.
So, what does all this mean?? It means we will continue to accept web site shopping cart orders and we will ship those items as soon as we can get them ready to ship. I have a friend who can do some assembly and packaging of items you order. If you need to come to the store we will gladly set up an appointment to meet you there.
We have also had to cancel our very successful hook-in vending event in Saline, Michigan. We have vended there several years and we really hate to miss this event. But, to vend we need to be able to pack, move, display and sell items. Not too easy to do using a walker.
Julie and Tammy, two of our local rug hookers, are hosting a free hook-in on February 5th, 2011 here in our store at 49 East Main Street, Shelby, OH 44875. The hook-in starts at 10:00 a.m. (or when ever you get here) and finishes around 3:30. Bring a sack lunch and we’ll provide hot and cold drinks. Or, walk across the street for a Subway meal. All wool sold during the hook-in will earn a 10% discount.
As most of you know we developed our own wool fabric cutting machine. The cutter head that fits our machine also fits existing Townsend machines. Our new machine retails for $399.95 and our cutter heads retail for $124.95. We expect to start shipping machines and more cutter heads yet this month.
We do have a brand new genuine Townsend cutter head in our stockpile of supplies. It is a size 6 and is available from us here at Ault’s. We have checked out the operation of this cutter and find that it works perfectly. However, it was dropped on the floor and has a boo-boo on the corner of the cutter. This has nothing to do with the cutters as they slice your wool.
We do not have this on our web site since it is a price reduced item due to the marred surface. We will ship it for $5.20 postage and sell it for $99.95. This is the only place you will see this deal. To purchase it please call me directly at 419-347-9957 and ask to purchase the marred Townsend No.6 cutter head. Please do not reply to this post thinking you will be able to purchase it this way. Call only to purchase.
If you are coming to our store in January 2011, we suggest that you call first. January is a time for us to be flexible. Part of the month we will be out of town but we check Internet orders from our web site every day so if you want to order rug hooking supplies, go right ahead.
Thanks for your support of Ault’s during 2010. It was a tough year for our business as well as most niche retailers. We are hoping that 2011 will be better, especially with our release of the new Ault’s Wool Fabric cutter machine.
Happy New Year!!!!!!!!
Larry & Gloria
