2018 Holiday Stitch-along Ornament Club FAQ
Become a member and join the felty fun. One new ornament design will be revealed every 2 weeks from October 8 through December 3, for a total of FIVE unique ornament patterns. Join the club and get a jump on your holiday crafting!
How does it work?
Register for the club in my shop, starting October 1st. When you join the club, you’ll receive a confirmation email with an Introduction and Materials List PDF to download. Starting October 8th you’ll receive an email with the first ornament pattern! Then every 2 weeks a new ornament PDF pattern will be added to your account. (You’ll receive an email with an updated file 10/8, 10/22, 11/5, 11/19 and 12/3) Join the club at any time and receive all five patterns!
What do I need to participate?
You will need to have materials for each project, access to a computer, the internet, a printer and Adobe Reader. A camera and a Facebook account are optional but highly recommended so you can share your work with the rest of the club!
Will you be selling supplies?
Yes! I will be selling a very limited supply of Ornament Club Supply Packs with all of the materials you’ll need to make at least one of each of the 5 ornament designs. Visit my shop to purchase. They sell out every year so plan accordingly if you’d really like to purchase one.
I’m a beginner, can I join?
Absolutely! Each ornament PDF pattern comes with clear instruction, diagrams, photos and is suitable for confident beginners. Hand sewing will be used for the projects as well as some machine sewing and basic embroidery stitches. Felt is the primary material being used as well as ribbon, buttons and other easy-to-use items.
Can I buy the ornament patterns individually?
The PDF pattern for each ornament will be available for purchase individually in my shop at full retail price. Individual ornament patterns will be released one week after the pattern is delivered to club members. Note that purchasing the Club represents a significant discount over purchasing each pattern separately. No refunds can be given for buying the patterns separately and then, at a later date, purchasing the complete Club..
Why are the ornament designs a secret?
That’s the fun part of this stitch-along club! Each month will be a surprise when you receive the newest ornament pattern in your account. And aren’t the holidays all about surprises? If you’re game for show and tell, there’s a Facebook group for the club to post your creations and to connect you to other members of the club. I’ll also be sharing tips, techniques and variations of the ornaments on my blog.
Can you give us a hint?
Nope! But you can take a peek at previous year’s designs to give you an idea of the type of ornaments we’ll be making.
How do I sign up?
October 1st Early Bird Sign up begins! You will be able to purchase the Club for $25 in my shop. Starting October 8th the price will go up to the regular club price of $30.
When does the club end?
The Club ends on December 31, 2018. After that date, the bundle of 5 ornaments will still be available but at the non-club price of $35. Each ornament will also be available for individual purchase here in my shop.
