We've been getting a TON of questions about the Christmas Club, so I'm here to give you some answers.
Also, based on some of the feedback I received after announcing this the other day, I've decided to make one important change. Please see below.
Why only 1000 spots?
So, to be honest, I initially thought 1000 was more than enough. From the response we've gotten so far, I can see that this Christmas Club might be a little more popular than I was expecting.
But here's the logistical reason.....
In order to get enough fabric for a whole lotta kits, I had to order about a year in advance. This is especially true with holiday fabrics, which are typically only introduced once a year by the fabric manufacturers I love most.
When the idea for the Christmas Club came about, I realized I would need to order fabric and other supplies, for an entire year's worth of kits up front.
I chose to do this for 1000 kits this first year, and slowly add on each year after. My plan is to hopefully add another 500 spots in November, 2021.
(Our first ornament will be the glittery Flurry ornament you see above.)
Will this really be Christmas all year?
What patterns will be used?
One of the things that has been bugging me for awhile, is that each month, we introduce an amazing brand new pattern (and that is awesome)... but then it goes into the vault, and we rarely get a chance to re-visit it.
What a waste!
With our brand new Christmas Club Kits, we'll be going back through our treasure trove of patterns... but with beautiful Christmas fabrics and embellishments every single month.
Will the new Christmas Club have any NEW patterns?
No, not brand new. We will use existing patterns, and occasionally variations.
Basically, our current OG Club is more focused on new patterns each month... and this new Christmas Club will be more about kits. I can't begin to count the number of times I send an ornament picture in Inspire emails (using one of our existing patterns), and we get replies asking if we can please make a kit for it.
We have so many amazing patterns and it's going to be so fun to use them in new ways, with beautiful Christmas materials.
Will there be a digital-only option?
No, not at this time. We will be basing these kits off of our existing collection of beautiful patterns, and so it doesn't make sense to offer a digital only option for this club.
If you're interested in getting a new pattern each month, I'd recommend sticking with our current Digital Ornament Girls Club.
Will there be an international shipping option?
What will I receive?
You will get:
- A complete kit, with fabric, foam, pins, and embellishments, to make each month's Christmas ornament.
- A full-length video tutorial, showing you how to make your ornament.
- Access to our private Ornament Girls Facebook Group.
Which Club is better for me?
Our current Ornament Girls Club is heavily focused on learning a new pattern every single month.
The new Christmas Club will be a chance to re-visit many of those patterns, to make a Christmas-themed ornament every month.
The Christmas Club will not be for everyone, but if you want more Christmas.... and if you would love the chance to practice some of our amazing patterns... and if you love getting a kit with ALL the things... pre-cut and ready to go.. than you will LOVE the Christmas Club.
Do I have to be a member of the Ornament Girls Club in order to join the Christmas Club?
The Christmas Club will be open to everyone. However, I will be offering it to current Ornament Girls first.
Can I trade my current OG Club Membership for a spot in the Christmas Club?
I can't guarantee you a spot in the Christmas Club... however, if you join, we will gladly cancel your current membership at your request.
Can I join both clubs?
Is there a discount if I join both clubs?
Please see the section below... I will be offering the Christmas Club at a slightly reduced price.
An important change...
These kits will NOT include an eBook. I realized this week that this caused a lot of confusion, and many of you expressed concern about paying for a pattern you may already own.
Instead of including an eBook, I'm going to reduce the monthly cost of these kits instead.
BUT, not to worry. These kits WILL come with a full-length video, which will show you exactly how to put your kit together, even if you don't already own the eBook.
What is the cost?
I am still working out the cost (as we're still figuring out a few last details and things), but I will have that information for you in the coming weeks!
I'm ready to join! Where do I sign up?
I know, I'm so excited too! It's been killing me to wait so long to tell you about this!
We aren't open yet, but signup day will be coming this fall (most likely end of October-ish), and I'lI have about 1000 spots available. Our first kit will be shipped November 2020.
We already have our first year of kits planned, based on these 1000 spots, and so we won't open again until November 2021 (except to maybe occasionally fill in any cancelled spots).
This will be an ongoing subscription club, but you will always be able to cancel any time (just like our Ornament Girls Club.
Can I sign up early?
I am so sorry, but we can't accept early sign ups.
Please stay tuned. I'll have more info coming as we get closer to Opening Day this fall!
