Please note that Dill Pickle Gear will be closed for the holidays from December 21-31. Orders for in-stock items placed before 4PM on Sunday, December 21st will be shipped on Monday the 22nd; orders placed after that will be shipped in the New Year. Have a wonderful holiday!
***First of all, come visit the Dill Pickle Gear shop in person at Vernon Street Open Studios on December 6-7 from noon-6PM.
The address is 6 Vernon Street, Somerville, MA. We’re on the third floor in Studio 54. And you can check out Bikeyface in the same room! More details at http://www.vernonstreet.com/open.html***
We’ll also have kits including all the materials you need to make our free sewing patterns. They contain printed-out instructions and pattern pieces, specially selected fabrics, plus binding material, zippers, stiffening material for hat brims, etc. They’ll be on the website after the weekend, but you get first dibs if you come to Open Studios.
And the survey’s in, and we have a new stock color. Actually, there are two new colors! Khaki and Stormy Blue were neck and neck with Olive coming in third. Stormy Blue won out, but since the top two were so close and we like both of them, we’re going to turn them both into stock colors. Don’t worry if you voted for olive or wine, though! they’ll still be available as “custom” colors. And all the other stock colors (red, navy, gray, and black) are sticking around too.
The new colors aren’t up on the website yet, but they will be very soon. In the meantime, here’s a preview:
Although the supplier calls the new color Khaki, we’re going to call it Sand instead. Khaki encompasses a wide range of colors with the most common being lighter than this shade, so we’re changing the name to something less confusing.
Hope to see you this weekend!
