Frequently asked questions - FAQ
What happens if I miss your first Saturday event one month?
Just pay $12.95 to get back into the Block of the Month program and we’ll give you the next pattern and kit in the series. Life gets busy! If you forget that day or need to be out of town, no worries! The $12.95 fee is small - we’ll get you back into the BOM program right away!
Our gift to participants is a free kit each month when we’re able to see customers at the shop and celebrate their ongoing progress. It’s so motivating to be a part of a community of quilters working on a special project! You may pick up your missed pattern/kit anytime that month. Online payment is so convenient! When you pay the $12.95, please type in the notes again to specify Batik or Blue & White to keep the same colorway (or visit us at the shop in person and we'll get you all set up!) We’ll prep your kit and have it ready for you to jump right back in! You can also select postage payment and we’ll mail your kit if you cannot get into the shop.
What if I am injured or ill and cannot come into the shop?
You can let us know before the first Saturday event by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org AND including a photo of your completed block (you can send a "quilt block selfie" or just the block photo). Email us by 10 am on the first Saturday showing us the completed block that month to be listed on time (and receive the next block pattern/kit for free.) If you cannot email in time, it's only $12.95 to get back on track and sign up again.
What happens if I join months after your BOM has started?
We’d still love to have you join our BOM program - at ANY time! Be sure to visit our store in person or sign up online. For online orders, pick Batik or Blue & White (type in notes), and contact Jennifer at the shop to get started at (317) 326-3115 or email email@example.com. If you're selecting Batik, you can view our Hoffman Bali Batik Club Star Bundle options online HERE or visit the shop to choose your Batik fat quarter bundle.
We will go back to “block 1” for you and have our staff make up all the kits you may have missed so you’re caught up - contact us to make arrangements. For example - if you join three months into the program, sign up three times ($12.95 x 3) to get caught up. Once you are on track, remember to attend first Saturdays, between 10 am - 1 pm, and bring your completed block to show us! You’ll receive a FREE kit/pattern for the next block. If you join 6 months into the program, sign up six times online ($12.95 x 6), etc. You’re welcome to jump in at any time!
