Can I get the blocks later too?

The blocks will be available online all year long for 5.- CHF (ca. 5 Euro) each. The blocks are free for members only in the beginning of every month. (Example: The March block will be free from March 1st until March 10th)

Can I jump in later?

You can sign up at any time. Past blocks will be available, but will not be free anymore. The number of participants is limited due to the special fabric.

Can I reserve blocks in the shop and pick up later than the 10th for free?

Sorry, this does not work.

Can somebody else pick up the block for me?

This does not work. You have to come into the shop in person or order it.

I want to save. Can I order the blocks for my friends at the same time?

This does not work. We ship just 1 block to one address. There is just one free block per member per month.

Is there enough fabric in the package to finish my block?

The provided fabric will cover most of what you need for one block. You might require a few pieces of your own. Depending on technique you’ll need additional sewing notions. The required materials will be listed, when you order a block.
