We love creating new things for our customers! We had the Mystery Yarn Tour Club last year for the knitters (we will do it again this fall if you didn’t get on board last year!), so we thought it was time to create something for you quilters out there. We have bounced around the idea of doing a Block of the Month Club for awhile. I tried looking at ones that other shops used, and there are *a lot* out there. None of the ones that I saw had the right feel for our shop, however. I reached out to the extremeley talented Caitlin, of Salty Oat, who had created our Row by Row last year. We talked and she created something for the shop that we are both really excited about! It is modern, clean and fresh. We hope you will love it too!
Here’s the skinny: next week we will open up the registration for our new Block of the Month Club. Club registration is $75 for six months. Starting on the 1st of April and after that on the first of every month you will pick up your monthly block kit which includes instructions and the fabric for that month’s block (we can also ship!). Each month’s block will be constructed with different techniques, so there will be a lot to learn. This is a six month club, so when you are done you will have six blocks completed (15″ finished) and the instructions for placing them in a beautiful quilt which you will now have the complete pattern for. What if you decide you don’t want to join for all six months? You can purchase each month’s kit individually for $15. Here’s the catch with the individual kits: you can only buy that current month’s kit. If you miss a month you will have to wait until ALL the blocks have been released to catch up.
To make things even more exciting, we decided to create three colorway kits for you. All the quilts will be a contemporary grey and white with one contrasting color. Your options for contrasting colors are the following, all coming from the amazing Cloud9 Cirrus Solids Collection: Fuchsia, Grass and Amazon.
Here is a peak at what the blocks will look like, but for the full reveal, you should sign up and join us on Sunday, April 2nd, when Caitlin will be here! We will have the quilt here for you to see in person and Caitlin will hold a demonstration on the techniques used in the blocks. After that we will have the official kick-off party with tea and cake, and (of course!) prizes to win!
Since we like to keep things a surprise, I only have a digital mock up for you so you can get an idea of what is in store. I have chosen to show only the fuchsia option in the mock up. And remember, some monitors are not completely accurate with rendering colors, but with the names of the colors, you be pretty sure it is hot pink, a turquoise and that nice, current green-yellow.
If you have any questions at all, leave a comment, ask us on Instagram (where we will post this as well) or shoot us an email. Who is ready for this club to start?!?!
