GENERAL BOM INFORMATION
Online and In Store
All BOM members pay a non refundable $10.00 sign up fee for each BOM program in which they are participating (Some BOM programs may have a larger sign-up fee. This occurs when participants will be receiving a book or large quantity of fabric in the first month). Credit cards will be held in a secure file. PayPal is NOT an acceptable form of payment due to the monthly payments required. Please be sure the card you give us has an expiration date beyond the end of your program, or call us with a new number when needed. No blocks will be available to pick up early nor will they be mailed out early before the first Saturday.
When you sign up for any BOM program, the entire year’s worth of patterns, fabric and/or supply purchases by our shop is allocated to you. That means we have already incurred the expense. There are no cancellations! Your card on file will be charged each month.
All members are expected to review their packets each month to be sure they have received everything they should have. We do sometimes make an error in cutting, and while we will make every effort to correct the mistake, we cannot promise to have the exact same fabric months after the fact. Please review your packet BEFORE the next BOM meeting, or before the next shipment to let us know if a mistake was made. If your notification occurs after that, we cannot guarantee an exact replacement will be available. If we become aware of an error that has occurred in everyone's packets, we will mail out corrections or replacements immediately.
In Store Participants
Block of the Month meets the first Saturday of each month (unless otherwise noted). Our doors open at 9 AM that day for current BOM members ONLY (a current BOM member is someone who is currently recieving monthly packets or has paid the sign up fee for a future BOM) and our meeting will begin sharply at 9:15. We have Show and Tell, a monthly challenge, and go over any particulars we know of for each block that month. In Store participants earn BOMBs, or Block of the Month Bucks. They are used a few times throughout the year as cash, so the more you collect the better! Earn BOMBs by attending the meeting, completing your monthly packets timely, and participating in show and tell and challenges.
Your credit card will be charged on the 1st of every month.
Block packets may be mailed to you if you reside out of town for any portion of the year. Just let us know when to turn on and off mailing.
By Mail Participants
An additional fee of $4.00 will be added to your monthly fee. International will be shipped the least expensive first class method available. We can fit 8 to 10 yards in a flat rate envelope. To save on shipping, get a friend to participate with you, or even more fun… get a group together once a month after your packet arrives, pass out the blocks and sew together! We’re happy to combine shipping to save you money. You always have the option of adding from our online catalog to fill your packets.
Packets are mailed out the week FOLLOWING the first Saturday of each month. Your credit card will be charged on the 1st of each month.
For any larger quantities of fabric that need to be mailed, the least expensive method of priority shipping will be used. Shipping fees are subject to change per the USPS.
