Wishing You A Happy Thanksgiving

I am having a happy holidays sale on my patterns at Ravelry.  If you buy anything from black friday till Dec 25 you will receive a 15% discount. This is only good in the Ravelry store not etsy.  Not sure if ravelry requires a code but if it does it would be happyholidays.

This is the first time I have done this on etsy so I think to get the discount on my etsy store items you will need to type in happyholidays in the code area at check out.  But it may just happen on it’s own please let me know so I have reference for the future.  It will also be a 15% discount on items in that store doesn’t apply to shipping special orders and things of that sort.    All PDF’s through etsy will be shipped through email after the Holiday ( Monday the 29th) as I am having fun with my family hope you are to.
