Good Afternoon, this is just a note to let you know that the people who Pre-Ordered the Printed version (only one available today) on August 16th and August 17th were shipped. You should have your calendars on September 4th or 5th. I will send out another note tomorrow updating everyone on the shipping results.
This is an update to notify everyone which calendars have been shipped
If you Pre-Ordered a calendar (Printed Version Only-no downloads will be available until Sept 5th)
And you ordered your calendar on August 14th or August 15th they were shipped today and you should have them on Wednesday Sept 2nd or 3rd. If you don’t remember when you Pre-Ordered your calendar, check your PayPal receipt, it should show you the date. If you aren’t sure and can’t find your receipt, drop me a note with the subject: Order date unknown and I will send back the date you ordered your calendar. I ask that you use that header because right now I am just super busy getting the calendars ready to ship.
I will post another message tomorrow about what other calendars have shipped.
I will be giving everyone updates on the progress of our calendar leading up to September 5th. There will be a big announcement on September 5th when we have the official kick off for the “Dishcloth Hangups For 2010”. A few days ago I found out that Kay Gardiner will be joining us again this year with one of her creations. I was SO excited about that because she always has very unique designs and this year is no different. I am going to save the surprise though until you actual purchase the calendar. Kay will have a surprise as well when she sees where her design is located, it just shows my warped sense of humor so if you are a very serious minded person that doesn’t have a sense of humor you probably won’t like having a calendar with an extra month in it. Oh did I just spoil the surprise?
The calendar was finalized yesterday and I have started the printing cycle. For those that Pre-Ordered, you will probably see your calendar a little earlier. I need to start making the labels for everyone so they will be ready to ship out of here. You may have a few questions about the shipping process and it works like this, first in, first out. That means if you placed an order on the 14th, chances are your calendar will be sent out in the first batch. There is a good chance that some of you may have your calendar on the 5th or sooner. When you see the PayPal email from me, that is letting you know your calendar has been shipped.
All the information about the calendar and raffle will be announced on Sept 5th. I can tell you there will be three prizes awarded. Two of them are shown below, 3rd prize will be 3 skeins of Peaches N Creme yarn. Remember to check back here often between now and September 5th.
Welcome to our new home. We are so excited to be able to have our little place on the Internet.
Today is the day that we start accepting Pre-Orders for our printed calendar. The download version will be available on Sept 5th.
If you want to place an order for the printed version below is some information about that process:
The prices this year for the calendar are $16 for a download copy and $18 for a printed copy (the extra $2 help to cover my printing costs.) Shipping for the printed copies works like this: $5 shipping and handling for the first calendar you order and $2 additional shipping for each additional calendar you order. So for example, one printed calendar costs $23 (18+5) and two calendars would cost a total of $43 (18+18+5+2). Anymore placing an order between now and September 5th will also receive a free gift.
If you are ordering more than one printed calendar you have two options. You can either contact me to tell me how many calendars you want and I will send you an invoice or you can order through our automated process but you will need to add the additional calendars to the shopping cart one at a time. For example: I want three calendars, how do I complete this? Go to the page that has all the 2010 calendars listed. Put the first one in the shopping cart…you will see it listed in the cart to the right. Scroll down and add the one marked “Second Printed Copy” and then scroll down and add the the one marked “Third Printed Copy”. When you check out, make sure you see three calendars listed in the shopping cart. We had to do it that way to discount the shipping on the additional calendars. Payment is made through PayPal and you will be prompted for a shipping address if you do not have one set up. Simple as that!
There will be a raffle held on October 15th. All the people who purchased a calendar will automatically be entered in the drawing. We will select 3 lucky winners to receive the following prizes:
1st Prize: Gift basket filled with yarn. This basket can be used for you to make up a gift using your own items to include in the basket for a friend or maybe your mom. The second prize is 3 skeins of yarn with a pair of knitting needles that say “I Love Knitting” and third prize is 3 skeins of yarn.
