Happy New Year perhaps a little late! We hope everyone enjoyed the holiday season and had a fun time with family and friends. I would like to thank each of you for helping make
e-patchesandcrests.com grow and prosper in 2013. We have even more in store for the coming year so stay tuned!
It's been crazy busy around here since late December as we are relearning how to do everything with the installation of our new system. Our apologies for shipments that have been delayed due to the changeover. It has even delayed our regular newsletter mailing so we've decided to combine January and February together.
I'm also very excited to have my daughter Kara arriving mid February to work with us for a few months. She's been travelling the world for over two years and has some exciting Guiding experiences to share. It'll be great to have her back in Canada and here in Sylvan Lake before she returns to UVic in the fall.
So let's start 2014 off right with 14 new owl patches! We’ve started making owls with seasonal and colour names as requested so keep those suggestions coming in. Also World Thinking Day is just around the corner and in preparation for this event we’ve released the Four World Centers patch and the Happy Brithday World Thinking Day patch.
Since the Flames of Guiding has been so popular, we have created the Flames of Scouting 9 piece set as well. We've also added more patches to the I Have Allergies set.
January's SPECIALS are 15% OFF all Thinking Day, Winter Activities, Hobbies & Games, and Health & Safety crests. For February we are continuing Thinking Day, Valentine’s, Friends and Our World.The discounts will show up automatically in your shopping cart upon checkout.
