12 Days of Stitch Makers Calendar


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 last years calendar and some are available as individual markers in the Christmas Section. 

What is it?

The 12 Days of Stitch Marker Calendar is a collection of 18 stitch markers that is designed to be opened in the run up to Christmas. All the food 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  but I don't think I'll include any sweets or chocolates due to any dietary restrictions people may have. 

What are the options?

There are 3 options to choose from food, winter/Christmas or a mix of both.  

Food - a selection of sweet and savoury themed food beads made from polymer clay. All the stitch markers are new for this calendar and haven't been on general sale before. Some are exclusive for this calendar and will only be available in the advent sets. 

Winter/Christmas - a selection of sweet and savoury food beads with a winter or Christmas feel to them. There will be items that are perennial favourites such as christmas cake and yule log as well as a handful of new designs. 

Mix - This set like the 'food' one is a set of new stitch markers some exclusively made for this calendar and won't be for general sale. A mix of sweet and savoury food beads but the emphasis is on new designs so you wont find Christmas cake or yule log in this one.

How much is it? 

£45 plus shipping for each set ordered.  

It's only April ! 

I actually started planning this in December last year. 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 payment up to the end of September.

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 sale. As I'm planning this much earlier this year I maybe able to make more and have them for sale later in the year but this is uncertain. 

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

I have a 'Buy Now, Pay Later' option. When you checkout make sure I have an email I can send a paypal invoice to. This invoice will allow partial payments and it is fully payable by the end of September. I'll send you a reminder at the beginning of September of any outstanding payment owing. 

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.
