Many of you asked for them. C-Lon responded. Here they are. They are bright, a bit blinding and they will get everyone attention. It is like getting a straight shot of espresso in a color form - they are so bright, they may even glow in the dark.

Monday, July 15 - Re-Opening in Chico CA

It's official. Marion Jewels in Fiber has relocated 200 miles northeast to Chico CA. The new mailing address is PO Box 6776, CHICO CA 95927. New phone is 530.774.2244. We were closed the week of July 4th through July 14th. Unofficially we shipped through July 4th at noon. Any order placed after that time will be shipped in the order received. Shipping resumes on Monday, July 15th.We should be back to normal by Wednesday. Thanks for understanding!

The moving truck delivered on Tuesday, July 9th. It took 3 big guys from 8 am to 1pm to unload all the boxes... not much furniture, mostly boxes, many with cord and thread. Wednesday we got all the computers, printers hook up and reconnected to the web. Yesterday and today, Friday, I have been working all day on the online store to get it ready for its re-opening on Monday. Most everything is in its place. Oops, one more box of C-Lon just arrived. It is my first UPS delivery! - Marion

May 5, 2013 Update
A few new colors of Panaché Ribbon have just been added and the very popular Maroccan Bazaar is back in stock...
April 6, 2013
Panaché Ribbon - Variegated Rayon Tubular Knit Ribbon Perfect for Kumihimo and More...

Knit Ribbon for Kumihimo and More

Bead Cluster Kumihimo Kits

This variegated hand dyed rayon ribbon is perfect for kumihimo. It has a knitted tube structure and it makes a 8 strand round braid of about a 3 mm in diameter. It can be braided as is or with beads. Beads can be added directly to this ribbon as it collapses onto itself making it possible to insert beads right onto it with a tapestry needle Size 24. The beads need to have soft edges such as high quality Japanese glass beads.

Since the Bead Cluster Kumihimo Kit was released, I have received lots of request for this ribbon. It is truly an amazing ribbon. I fell in love with it when I saw it a year ago. It took me till the summer to design a kit with it. Now it is available in mini skeins in 12 coloways. Have fun and try it! - Marion > Panaché Ribbon > See Braids Made with Panaché Ribbon
Just Added - Gold & Silver Tone End Clasps - Magnetic, Toggle and Spirals

These end clasps come in two different diameter. The 3.2 mm is perfect for the Panaché Ribbon or the C-Lon Bead Cord Tex 400 braided in a 8 strand round braid. The 6.2mm is great for larger diameter braids or cords. > Gold & Silver Tone Findings


C-Lon News - Planning New Colors, Price Increases - From C-Lon Newsletter... slightly edited for brevity...

Fun: 20 new colors of the C-Lon Fine Weight Tex 135 Bead Cord are planned for this year. It will bring the representation in this size to 44 colors. It is super news for all who like working with this size as 24 colors was a bit short. We all like to have choices.

More Fun: C-Lon is back to choosing potential new colors to extend the C-Lon Bead Cord Collection. Yes the one that already has 104 colors... This involves choosing shades that fill in gaps in the current collection, getting sample bobbins from the factory, and making choices. It is a long process. It involves choosing samples from thread snippets, getting sample spools, selecting the finalists, and then placing orders for a few colors at a time as it takes lots of money to add a new color. C-Lon has asked my help in this process, so yes I welcome your suggestions. Keep in mind that translating from something like a colored piece of paper or a Pantone color to dyed thread will definitely change the look and 'feel' of the color to some degree. Even from snippets of thread to bonded nylon there are subtle yet noticeable shifts. I will be choosing my suggested snippets for the next month or so. Email me and let me know about colors you have been dreaming about!

Not fun: The factory raised prices in February. C-Lon raised their prices last weeken, It is nothing too dramatic, but some adjustment to prices will have to take place soon as new inventory with higher prices come in.
