12 Days of Stitch Makers Calendar FAQ


I thought I'd do a quick FAQ about my calendar as there are often messages or queries that are raised about it.  On the right is a selection of stitch markers that were included in the 2019 countdown.

What is it?

The 12 Days of Stitch Marker Countown Calendar is a collection of 15 stitch markers that is designed to be opened in the run up to Christmas. All the stitch markers have been handmade by me from polymer clay and there maybe the inclusion of other miniature ceramics to compliment the collection. I may also add some extras as a surprise for you. 

Extras? Surprises?

As I want to keep any extras a secret and to be honest I haven't really thought a lot about this bit yet I'm not sure what will be added. It could be a bonus stitch marker or other knitting notion. It could be a flavoured tea bag  or chocolate. 

What are the options?

There are 3 options to choose from 1.Party Food. 2. Christmas 3. Mix of Party food and Christmas

Food - a selection of sweet and savoury themed food beads made from       polymer clay. The theme for this years countdown is party food. Included in this collection will be things such as sausage rolls, sandwiches,  and cakes that are traditionally seen on a buffet or birthday party tea. 

Christmas - a selection of sweet and savoury beads with a winter or Christmas feel to them.  There will be favourites such as Christmas pudding, cake and gingerbread men. 

Mixed - This selection is a combination of Party Food and Christmas items. There will be 7 Party Food stitch Markers and 8 Christmas themed ones. 

I also have a  limited number of 24 day countdowns which will include the full set of 30 stitch markers from the Party Food and Christmas set.

It's only April ! 

It takes an awful lot of planning, time, admin, marketing, ordering supplies, creating, packing, posting on top of the normal day to day things to make a Christmas countdown.  You are under no obligtion to pay now as there is the buy now and pay later option that allows you pay in installments.  Even at this point if you need more time, let me know, as I can hold onto your box until full payment is made. 

I'm not sure if I want one yet?

The Countdown Calendars go on sale at the end of April and will stay on sale until they sell out. You can always choose the buy now, pay later option but if you change your mind and decide not to have one then contact me as soon as possible so I can offer it for general sale.

That's a bit expensive can I pay in installments? 

I have a 'Buy Now, Pay Later' option. When you check out using this option I will send you an invoice via paypal. There is an intial deposit payable to confirm your spot then 4 payments due in May, June, July and August. 

I've changed my mind what do I do? 

If you have changed your mind - let me know.  If you have paid then I'll happily refund any payments made. You can contact me at [email protected] Or email me to cancel. 

When will I recieve my Calendar? 

The postal system is a mess around Christmas so I aim to send out all your packages from the end of October to the middle of November. Overseas packages will be sent first at the end of October followed by the others over the following weeks. You will be sent a despatch email informing you that it is on it's way.
