FAQs:

Can I get the patterns later too?

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

Can I jump in later?

You can sign up at any time. Elder patterns will be available, but will not be free anymore.

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

Sorry, this does not work.

Can somebody else pick up the pattern 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 patterns for my friends at the same time?

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

Can my other friends (non-members) sew the same project?

We support sewing groups. You are welcome to do so!

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

The free fabric or notion will not be sufficient to finish the entire project. You are welcome to use up fabric from your fabric stash. We will always make suggestions to make the choice easier.
