Next weekend (September 17 and 18, 2010) we will be setting up to vend at the “In The Spirit of Friends” show. This is a one-day show from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00p.m. at the Malabar Farm State Park at 4050 Bromfield Road, Lucas, Ohio. There is a $2.00 admission charge. Vendors of country antiques, hooked rugs and rug hooking equipment, primitive folk art, grungy handmades, will be present. We will be vending wool off the bolt for $18.95 per yard. Our store will be closed both days so come to Malabar Farm to see us.
I had a phone call from one of our customers this week saying she was having trouble placing an order while using our shopping cart. She is a customer that had ordered from us at other times. So, what was the problem?
We recently changed the shopping cart and our web site so that I can manage the site easier. This change means that even our existing customers need to register the first time they place an order on our site. This registering is a one time event and it provides us with your mailing address so that we can send your purchase directly to you.
Hope this change does not give our new and existing customers a problem. Please visit our web site at www.aults.com to check out our new look.
During the balance of September 2010 we are offering free shipping on Fraser 500-1 machines when you order at least one additional cutterhead and mention the blog. This is a savings of $15.00. To take advantage of this FREE shipping deal you need to call our toll free number at 866-659-1752. The shopping cart cannot handle the details of free shipping.
What a surprize when a major wool fabric cutter company announced the closing of their business back in June. Many rug hookers scrambled to get the cutterheads they needed to supplement their cutterhead supply. We had hundreds of calls asking about the availability of the cutterheads and the machine.
Since then we have been busy determining how we can need the needs of our customers and other rug hooking enthusiasts. Soon we will be announcing our solution to the problem. Remember, when the crisis occured we suggested not to panic because someone would eventually pick up the challenge of supplying a machine and cutterhead. That time is drawing near. Please keep watching our blog for an important announcement coming soon!!

We are placing some very nice wools on sale here at Ault’s. Gloria just loves to buy all the new patterns. Sometimes every yard she gets sells out quickly. Other times they sell slower. We currently have some wools that will be great in rugs but they have been here a little to long. By discounting the price on these wools we can move them out of inventory and replace them with the latest wool from the woollen mills.
We know how difficult it is to sell wool “sight unseen ” so we have made up a swatch kit of all the wools we have discounted. You can order the swatch kit by calling us Toll Free at 866-659-1752. The cost of the kit is $5.00, which includes shipping to you.
OH! Better tell you the price of the wool. This wool is on the bolt and has not been fulled so you can process it your way. The minimum piece size is one yard. The price is $18.95 per yard. We do not accept returns on sale items.
As of a few days ago our web site changed a little. There are some new graphics and the shopping cart looks different than the other one we used. You will find little summaries and pictures of the items we have on the web site. Just click on the summary and you’ll be taken to the full text and picture and there you can place your order. We charge sales tax for orders sold to addresses in Ohio. The shipping charge is calculated after you place your last order. As always, if your order is not available for shipment the next day, we will send you an email to alert you of any delay in shipping.
