BOM 2023: RULES AND TIPS – any updates or changes will be on our website and our Facebook page.
IN-STORE INFORMATION IS BELOW
Rule # 1: The completed block is to be returned by the registrant on the next meeting date to get your reward discount. This is usually the 1st Thursday from 5 PM to Saturday 5 PM check dates listed as this year some dates had to change because they coincided with a holiday! *Write the dates in your calendar*
Rule #2: The blocks will not be distributed earlier than stated. Thursday start is 5 PM
In Store Demos are Thursday 5 pm and 5:30 pm – the store closes at 6pm and Friday 10:30 am. Stay for new tips and hints on the new block and at that time you will receive the next block fabrics and instructions. This will help those that like the personal notes and help. Our YOUTUBE will go up on the Saturday.
Sign up and first block $11.99. If you follow the above simple rules, your other blocks will only cost $5.99 each (this is your $2 reward for completing your block!). If you do not manage to come in and comply with the rules you pay the regular price of $7.99 for your next block package. Upon receiving your January BOM you will receive a “coupon” with two uses. If you are late or on vacation, you can “cash” in the coupon and still receive the block/s at the discounted reward price.
If for any reason you need to “drop-out” of Block of the month, we do require two months’ notice with payment. If you are away for any reason, we are always happy to keep your blocks for you, please let us know if you are gone for an extended period.
At the end of the twelve months, you will have made twelve blocks, and there are optional pattern ideas to finish your quilt, with a variety of sashing and border techniques. If you want ideas, they will be available, and if you wish to do your own thing with your blocks you can do that too! I design a specific block of the month booklet with at least 15 designs for you to use to finish your blocks into a quilt or project.
First block and instructions are available starting January 5th at 5pm
Demo January 5th @ 5 & 5:30, January 6th @10:30 am We have included dates for the next few months but will update everyone on dates if this changes. These are the times you are to show your completed block (in-person) and pick up the new one. These are also the dates that we send out the mail order blocks.
