In the past few weeks we have been able to dramatically reduce the out of stock problem with Zweigart fabrics. Because this affects your business directly, I wanted to keep you informed.
Zweigart fabrics that Yarn Tree carries fall into one of three categories: Zweigart's regular line colors, USA Collection colors, and hand over dyed colors.
Zweigart's regular line colors. These are stock colors from Germany and will now usually be in stock at Yarn Tree. These colors represent a large percentage of the sales of Zweigart fabric and are the colors most likely to be stocked in stores.
USA Collection. These are custom colors from Needleworkers Delight and are distributed by Yarn Tree. Availability will be less dependable.
Hand Over Dyed Colors. These are Zweigart fabrics that have been hand over-dyed for Needleworker's Delight and distributed by Yarn Tree. Availability will be less dependable. Also, hand dyed fabrics have more variation in color from piece to piece.
In the Online Catalog section of our web site (http://yarntree.com/cross-stitch) we show which colors are USA Collection or Hand Over Dyed in a pop-up window. I hope this information will help you when deciding which fabrics to use for your designs and models.
Keep on Stitching! Beth
