Workshop and Contest FAQ's and Updates (If you haven't signed up yet, READ THIS!)

We have been really loving the emails we are getting for the Blueberry Hill Giveaway. I must admit, nothing hits home like a good haiku! We've also been getting oodles of questions from loving husbands, freinds, and moms, and in addition to answering them individually I'm also posting them here for all to see...

And may I just say, I firmly believe (and am more convinced than every upon reading the nominations) that my readers are some of the most loved and appreciated sewists around?

Q: ARE THERE ANY SPOTS LEFT IN YOUR BLUEBERRY HILL WORKSHOPS?

A: Yes, there are spots left, including the very best BFF set-up that the Inn offers, the cutest little room with two twin beds overlooking the barn and the meadow. We have a few shared room spots available in both weekends and we have just two private rooms left in the first weekend, three in the second.

Q: I WANT TO BUY MY WIFE A WORKSHOP BUT I ALSO HAVE THREE KIDS, A CAT, AND A VERY PICKY GOLDFISH TO HOLIDAY-SHOP FOR, SO I'M NOT SURE I CAN AFFORD TO SEND HER. WHAT ARE MY PAYMENT OPTIONS?

A: We take a deposit of 60% of the workshop fee when you register. The remainder is due a few months before the workshop starts. If you need to make special payment arrangements to get a workshop under the tree, let us know. We would love to help make it work for your family and we know that this time of year is especially taxing.

Q: WHAT SKILL LEVEL IS THIS WORKSHOP SUITABLE FOR?

A: Every single one! Everybody gets individual attention with whatever projects they choose. Beginners are very welsome, as are ambitious experts.

Q: CAN YOU HOLD A SPOT FOR ME /EMAIL ME RIGHT AWAY IF MY WIFE / FRIEND DOESN'T WIN SO THAT I CAN NAB HER A SPOT?

A: We can't hold a spot for you, but we can refund your registration if you win the spot. Judges don't see the registration information, so nobody will know if you have signed up or not and it won't affect the outcome one bit!
