Friends! To those of you who have contacted me via a blog comment, direct email, or my social media- thank you for your patience!!!
Dare I pull back the Stitchery Dickory Dock curtain for a moment? If you could only see me sitting here in my pajamas, in tears, feverishly replying to angry emails and comments from so many of you, as kiddos whine at my feet and tug at my legs. After a week of visiting family in a rural area, with spotty internet…of trekking to Starbucks daily to try and keep up on emails, followed by a 24 hour cross country road trip that consisted of my husband driving and me replying to emails and trouble-shooting problems via my iPhone.
I love you all and am SO thrilled that you all are so eager and excited to quilt with me this year. Some of you just signed up yesterday or the day before and are frustrated at not having received your emails yet. I’ve even had a couple of folks ask to cancel their subscriptions after signing up the 1st and not having received their pattern yet! Wow! Friends, friends, I beg of you! I pray that we can start this year out with a slow, deep breath, and a fresh reminder that we are all human and doing our best….the clerk at the Post Office, the person in line in front of you at the grocery, the slow poke driving in front of you as you race to work in the morning…and yes, even me…all human and needing a bit of grace now and then. And I’m as guilty as any- so quick to get frustrated and impatient in this lightening speed world.
Ok, I’m done ranting. Thank you thank you thank you for signing up for the club, and thank you for your patience as I work through the growing pains of this launch! Your overwhelming response is both a huge blessing and a unique challenge for me.
SO, all that said- here’s some info that might help:
- If you signed up on or after the 1st, sit tight. I am pasting your emails into my subscriber list literally at this very moment, and you can expect a welcome email and your first pattern by tomorrow.
- The rest of you have already been sent a welcome email (which includes fabric requirements and other important details), and the January pattern. If you didn’t receive either or both of these, please check your spam folder, and adjust your spam settings by adding my email address, firstname.lastname@example.org, to your safe sender list. Emails from high volume email services like Constant Contact (the one I’m using), have the tendency to be filtered out by your email provider in their efforts to reduce your spam, but you can overcome this by safe-listing my address. More info on how to do that HERE.
- I will re-send the emails out today to everyone, including a more printable PDF option, so please safe-sender me and look for the emails.
