I also started a Ribbon Share. This is where I buy all the ribbon in each color and divide it out to everyone so they get some of each color instead of having to buy a whole spool. I know for me, even being a demonstrator, I have lots of half spools that never get finished before they’re retired. And of course, how fun to have every color to choose from! This is how it works: I have 5 spots for each share, you pay 1/5 of the cost for buying all the colors of that ribbon; I purchase all the colors; then, I split them out and give everyone 2 yards of each color (with a few exceptions). So, if you want 4 yards, you just sign up for 2 spots. I hope I explained that well…just let me know if you’re confused.
The exceptions are: Baker’s Twine is 5 yards per person and the Demin, Crochet Trim, and Organza are together in one share with yards per person as 2yds/1yd/3yds respectively. I’ll have the clipboard at all my events this month, but if you want to get a spot for a particular style ribbon (or several of them), let me know and I’ll mark you down. I won’t purchase until I have several ribbon types full. I’m intending this to be a local share, but if you’re reading this and don’t mind paying shipping, let me know.
