This is probably the biggest announcement that Tawny Bee will ever make.
I’ve been struggling with this decision for several months now, but now is the time.
Tawny Bee will be closing up shop before September 2014.
With my daughter Lane starting Kindergarten in the fall, it’s time for me to go back to work. So it seems like the right time to close the virtual doors. I’m not finding any joy in it anymore and would rather focus my sewing talents on projects that I especially want to make instead of those that I feel I have to make to keep the shop afloat.
I have sewn the last item for my Etsy and Zibbet shops this week and will leave all listings up until they expire. I’ve reduced shipping on all items to “free” within Canada and the United States and have reduced shipping to destinations worldwide. I have also removed any custom-make items. Whatever is left is what is for sale.
Of course for those of you locally who know my products and would like me to make things for you, I’m still going to be doing that. No worries – you will get your minions, potty trainers, mama cloth etc. I just won’t be making any other items to place in the online shops and won’t be keeping any stock.
More details on this announcement to come in future posts.
It’s going to be a big adjustment for me but I believe it’s the right one to make for my future.
Thank you to all my fans and customers throughout these almost 6 years. I have appreciated your business and support more than you will ever know.
