If you would like to get a Bluster Bay shuttle as soon as possible, please check with the retail stores that carry our shuttles. Many of our retailers should have shuttles in stock. We just shipped an order to Webs in Massachusetts:
We also just sent a variety of shuttles to The Woolery in Frankfort, Kentucky:

On Oct. 18, 2016 we had to acknowledge our current volume of orders is such that we cannot fill shuttle orders for delivery before Dec. 25.
Fortunately, we have some great retailers that have shuttles in stock for your holiday gift shopping. Please shop with the stores that stock Bluster Bay shuttles or consider giving a Bluster Bay gift certificate.
We ARE still taking shuttle orders. However, due to the large number of orders we have received this Fall, our current estimated delivery time is about three months.
Bluster Bay is a one-person wood shop where Terry shapes, sands, polishes and wraps each shuttle. His personal attention to detail insures that the shuttles are wonderful to feel, look at and use. Thanks to everyone who understands that this level of craftsmanship takes time but is definitely worth the wait. We will get the shuttles you order out as soon as we possibly can.
Sometimes the shuttle-maker becomes a photographer. This morning a batch of 11″ Honex-tensioned end-feed shuttles had their day in front of the camera before being shipped to Village Spinning & Weaving Shop in Solvang, CA.

How does this look?
Nice stack of shuttles!

Here are some of the shuttles that were still just slabs of wood in a photo posted last Sunday. Today Honex tensioners are being installed as the final step before sending them off to customers.
All finished, labeled and ready to be put into a shipping box. The newly completed Honex-tensioned end feed shuttles, along with many others, are on their way to Weavin’ Place – SAORI Style in Folsom, Louisiana.
