Best Club EVER!!!
I was going to write a post about the Christmas presents I have completed since Thanksgiving. I thought that posting my progress would keep me on track to finish all I need to make BEFORE 2AM Christmas morning!!! Good intentions and all that malarkey!!
So I wake up this morning and go through my routine of deleting the five thousand emails telling me how to cure what ails me, enlarge things, lose weight, buy the best____ I've ever owned and a myriad of other things. Once all the important spam was out of the way I move on to the good stuff....quilt related emails! I notice that there is an email from ChrisWDesigns in there. I LOVE her patterns (and herself!) so I click in to it right away. And what to my wondering eyes does appear?!!!!! No, no Down Under reindeer!!!! A brand new bag club venture hosted by another of my faves, Sew Sweetness. I could hardly believe my eyes!!! A membership into their VERY exclusive club comes with a brand new bag pattern on the first of every month for 6 months from 6 different designers. I have bought patterns from most of them and, I must say, they were all very well written. There will also be a Facebook page set up for any and all questions that club members may have regarding the construction process. How cool is that?! It will be a community of bag makers!! So, as I'm reading about the club I'm thinking bag patterns are usually $10 - $12 a piece. Since this is a club the price will probably be a little less than the cost of six individual pattern, right? I'm thinking maybe $50. So that's cool because I loved all the previous bags by these designers so I know these six will be great. BUT WAIT!!! I get to the bottom of the post and Chris is trying to tell me that it's only $40 to join. WHAAAAAATT!!! That's even better because I just got paid $40 for a bag I made for a customer!! Holy snowman Charlie Brown! How perfect is that?! BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE......if you join in the month of December it's only $35!! There really is a Santa Claus Virginia!! That's less than 6 bucks a pattern. I think it took me all of two minutes to click over to Sew Sweetness and sign myself up! Merry Christmas to me!!
So if you want to join in on this club, and you know you want to, click on over HERE and sign on up. All the cool kids are doing it!!! Come on, I want to see lots of finished bag pics on Facebook.
Hopefully tomorrow I will get up my present progress report! Come on back and check out my stuff!!
