Time Keeps on Tickin'

So far February and March have been super-duper for us here at The Purple Pecan. We're so blessed to have so many loyal customers AND have new customers! It is so exciting. We love what we do and wish we could spend all of our free time designing, sewing, and creating.

Also important to us is creating unique, high quality designs that are custom made as orders are placed. We also strive to keep our prices competitive and reasonable. We draft our own patterns and often draw and digitize our own applique designs. We LOVE what we do and want to be able to provide great customer service. Currently our turnaround time is 10 business days, but we will likely be extending that time to 10-15 business days for a short while to allow us to catch up (at least a little bit).

Because we live in a college town, Kathy finds herself working full time as a real estate agent for several weeks during the Spring when 40,000 students find themselves looking for housing next year. Because a faculty member in her department was diagnosed with breast cancer, Anne had to take on a 4th class for this Spring semester. Add into this our children, family obligations, and Kathy's pregnancy and we can feel very overwhelmed.

We love what we do very very much and appreciate our lovely customers. We are blessed with your support for Mom-owned business. We promise that we are working diligently on creating high quality, completely custom items for your family. Thank you for your patience and support.

All our love,
Anne and Kathy
