It' that's time again!

Alrighty Crafters! It's that time of year again when Costco puts their new line of French Wired Ribbons on the shelf.

This year it looks as if there is a trend towards the browns, golds and warm autumn colours! A few snowmen have made the cut along with a few blues and of course the ever present shades of red. I also found a beautiful tone on tone black stripe. On the third shelf in this photo, in the center is a tone on tone cream 2 1/2 in ch wide gorgeous stripe. I can imagine the elegant bow it would make.

Many of these ribbons have a gold or silver metallic woven edge that is really pretty. Are you the gal on the block who puts bows all over the Christmas tree? These ribbons are perfect for that. Plus, when it is time to take down the tree, you can carefully fold your bows and pack them away. Next year all you'll have to do is pull out the folded bow, finger fluff them back into shape and there you go, all done and pretty again.

This photo didn't capture all of the choices so you'll just have to grab someone's card and see all the goodies for yourself!

At $6.99 for 50 yards, this 1 inch -2 1/2 inch wide, wire edge ribbon is a steal. I have to admit I have a small addiction to this ribbon and fill my shelves with as much as I think I will use in the coming year for crafting projects and wrapping presents. I love that there are so many ribbons that could be used for masculine projects or packages. Just last week I attended a wedding party whose theme included, BROWN... hmm, seems I found this ribbon just in time.

Lisa, yeah, I think just at Costco.

Chronicler, it is one of the good things about the big box. You can borrow mine anytime.

I would like to bear my testimony. I know Costco is true. I will buy all that is has sold, all that it is now selling, and I believe it will yet sell many great and important things for Sal and the children of Sal. Costco, I love ye!
