I have lots of information to share with you on this post…so PLEASE…take the time to read and make sure you understand it if you are interested in signing up for our 2013 Summer Block of the Week…Starts June 3rd…2013….I will try answer all of your questions here.
Words to Live By…will be the “theme” of this years event…Each block will contain an “inked” word and flowers, birds and so on…This will be the only peek you will get of the blocks, so it will still be kind of a mystery…The quilt will consists of 13 blocks…12-12″ finished wool applique blocks on regular cotton backgrounds and then a 13th block-24″ center block is what you will commit to buy in all. The finishing kit-or the setting will be an optional purchase. When the quilt top is together we will reveal it and you can decide if you want to purchase the finishing kit and the price will also be listed then. I do not know exactly how it will be right now…but I can give you a “rough” idea. The 12 blocks will surround the center block on point. So everything in tan shown here you are getting in the 13 weeks this summer. Everything in red is still to be determined….now don’t think that this is how it will look…the red can be pieced, contain applique and be many different colors and so on…this part is not designed yet….just the tan blocks…
If you would like to order the finishing without knowing all the details, so you don’t miss it…you are more than welcome to do so…we don’t know the price or the shipping price…but I know to some of you this will not matter…you will order it anyway….
COST: We will be charging $12.50 per week for weeks 1-12….$25 the center block. We have included some of the cost of the center block in each of the weekly blocks so it will not be a huge expense for the last block.
If you want to pay in full for your BOW we have given some discounts….$220.50 Wisconsin customers, $210.50 all out of state customers…this includes all the blocks and shipping and sales tax for WI residents. International customers will have to be adjusted for shipping and dealt with on one on one basis.
SHIPPING: Now for the shipping we will charge a straight across the board $3.50 for everyone in the US. International orders will be determined by where you are located…and we will be in contact with you about your SBOW shipping. We will be shipping the SBOW out a little differently this year…In order to keep up with our regular internet orders we are going to be splitting up the shipping alphabetically throughout the week. This is a tentative schedule but it would go something like this…Last Name/Alphabetically
Monday-Paid in fulls and Internationals and A-H domestic
Please remember that this block ships by itself and cannot be added to a previous block of the month or internet order, only items pertaining to the block of the week will be shipped with it.
*If we can will will get more out each day…but this is the first weeks schedule to see how it goes…
THREADS: I will post the first months worth of threads used before we start…Please check your threads and order accordingly…there will not be a lot of different colors used this year….Order as soon as you can, so we can order the threads accordingly, and get them in, in a timely manner…..I will be using some #8, #12 and some 3 stranded Valdani threads for the blocks and the freebies and will list all the threads as soon as I have the blocks done.
We will have the Black Permenant Pens available too…working on the price for them direct from the company and should be really resonalble…the one I used is awesome!!! It is from the same company who makes the Frixion pens…but is permanent. I was never a fan of my pigma pen….
Now WHY do I really want to sign up for the BOW……the freebies!!! This years freebies will be 4″ appliqued wool on regular cotton backgrounds….there will be 13 blocks and then an OPTIONAL finishing kit….Please remember to order your finishing kits when we give the details. So many forget or when they see it in person it looks so much better and they change their minds… and then they want to order one…believe it or not…customers are still ordering last years!!! LOL…. Please TRUST me….I will not let you down…
Hope you are happy with this years SBOW….I work really hard to try and figure out something different and awesome…If I forgot anything or you have any questions that I did not answer already, please reply and I will answer it if it isn’t already in my text here..
