    Thought I'd share an update, which isn't really that much of an update because the answer is the same: we're so efficient that there aren't many usable scraps with which to make Halcyon Organizer Pouches. And, while the previous Halcyon shortage has resolved itself, we are being mindful of our supply just in case there's any future delays.

    Darcy mentioned somewhere that they've gotten very efficient and there is less scrap for OPs.... I'll try to find her comment
    I believe this was in a reply to a comment on the Updates & What's Next blog post from August 28, 2021. Quoted below:

    Amy - August 31, 2021
    Will we see any more halcyon organizer pouches? I know they are made with scraps, so production isn’t always constant, but I would love to grab a few for my knitting/sewing kits and travel trays!

    The fate of future Halcyon Organizer Pouches is uncertain at this time: we’ve become so darn efficient there aren’t many scraps to work with. We might reimagine the Halcyon Organizer Pouch and offer something new in 2022… we’ll see!

    eBay (Germany, of all places) to the rescue. A few HOP in size Mini showed up a week ago. I saw a grey one going for 12 Euro but got these two (together) for less than that.

    I remember this comment, too, but it’s getting really hard to track down sources, since a lot of miscellaneous questions and answers have been popping up in blog postings. The last related post that I can recall specifically on the topic of all fabric options in pouches and double organizer pouches was in the Discussion of New Colors, New Designs sticky thread on 11-11-2021 when Darcy replied to a question by @epeterson

    Love the all-fabric option!! Is there any chance we'll see all-fabric organizer pouches (or double organizer pouches) in the near future?

    We're glad folks requested the all-fabric option... we'd forgotten about it, or at least I did!

    I'll add requests for both to our project app! That said, I think it's unlikely: we're offering quite a few options these days and I think we'd need to narrow them down a bit before offering more, if that makes sense. Maybe as a special production run at some point?
    G42 and others, you can sometimes use the Advanced search function to specify the poster and, if you specify a restricted date range for keywords, pull up relevant posts by that poster using those terms over that period.

    I chatted with Kat the other day - current 'best guess' is OPs being restocked this summer

    We use this abbreviation all the time at work... but weirdly enough, there are NEVER mirror balls dropping down from the ceiling with light shows and funky music when we say it -humph!

    Sure, I follow that the pouches are made from scraps and there may not be many scraps right now. But do you all see the same content on the page that I do? I'd expect it to have a "We don't know when we'll make this again" message. It currently looks like a bug or something on the page.
