I know that Thanksgiving hasn't even happened yet and I really don't want to be one of those stores that starts the sales before we have even had time to enjoy our families and our feasts... much less recovered from our turkey comas!
But in an effort to make sure that everyone is ready, here is the info for our crazy 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS SALE that starts on BLACK FRIDAY [in 2 days].... at 6:00 am Pacific Standard time [California time].
Please read carefully if you have never played along.
There is also a big change in how we are doing the accumulated shipping this year so please read all the way through carefully!
12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS FINE PRINT
* The Fig Tree 12 Days of Christmas sale starts on Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, and lasts for 12 days [usually with a Sunday off here or there].
* Each day a different kit, stocking stuffer and/or home dec goodie will be advertised- on some days several of each! Each day a special offer will be made as well.
* Each special offer will only become available on that one day. Each goodie will only be available while stock lasts. Most of the items offered will sell out on that day, some will last a few days. Please believe us that some items will sell out crazy fast [in minutes] and some will last all day based on popularity and stock. Although we try and have and anticipate the demand, we are often surprised by your enthusiasm.
* We never know which ones will sell out the fastest! If we are able to get more in stock of any popular product, we will try but we can't guarantee that anything that sells out will come back in stock. If they can, it will not be a part of the sale but something that we offer after Christmas for a separate January delivery.
* For those of you who want to continue to purchase items throughout the 12 days of the sale but want us to hold your purchases for one shipment, YOU NEED TO BUY-A-BOX. THIS IS NEW AND DIFFERENT THIS YEAR!! The box is an actual product available on our homepage. You only need to purchase it once either before the sale starts or on the first day that you purchase a 12DAYS item- but you need to purchase it as an actual product once. Then for all the remaining purchases you make, you will simply choose the "I BOUGHT A BOX" option in the shipping directions during the checkout process. If you buy more products than fit in the box.... WE WILL PAY FOR THE REMAINING SHIPPING!! If you do not fill up that amount by the end of the sale, we will let you know how much of a credit you have and you can choose patterns for the difference [we will only charge a partial price on the patterns so you will get a deal]. There is no way to lose in this exchange!!
If you do not BUY-A-BOX, your items will not be accumulated but will be shipped to you each day that you purchase them. We know that some of you love that feeling of getting something in the mail each and every day and look forward to the "presents" arriving to you every mail day!!
IN PAST YEARS, MANY OF YOU HAVE ASKED WHAT IS THE BEST/MOST ACCURATE WAY TO KNOW WHEN WE HAVE POSTED THAT DAY'S SALE. SINCE WE WILL CHANGE THE TIMES THAT WE POST THE PRODUCTS TO GIVE PEOPLE ON BOTH COASTS AS WELL AS INTERNATIONAL A BETTER CHANCE TO PARTICIPATE, YOU HAVE TO FOLLOW US IN SOME WAY.
EACH DAY WE WILL SEND OUT THIS NEWSLETTER, POST ON FACEBOOK & INSTAGRAM, WRITE A BLOG POST AND TRY TO LET YOU KNOW VIA INSTAGRAM.
THE MOST RELIABLE WAYS ARE PROBABLY THIS NEWSLETTER AND INSTAGRAM. IF YOU SUSCRIBE TO THE BLOG, THE SUBSCRIPTION OFTEN COMES LATE OR THE FOLLOWING DAY. THE DESCRIPITON OF THAT DAY'S PRODUCTS WILL BE ON THE BLOG EACH DAY BUT YOU MIGHT WANT ANOTHER FORM OF FINDING OUT THAT WE HAVE "GONE LIVE" FOR THAT DAY.
IF YOU HAVE THE CAPABILITY TO CREATE SOME KIND OF AN ALERT, YOU MIGHT WANT TO DO THAT.
PLEASE LET US KNOW IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS BEFORE FRIDAY AND WE WILL TRY TO ANSWER ALL OF YOU!!
Can't wait to play along with you starting on Friday!!
We are working like crazy to get ready for our upcoming 12 DAY OF CHRISTMAS SALE coming up soon.... [for those of you who have never done this sale with us, we will have more info soon/for those of you who know what is coming, get ready!
But I thought I would pop my head in for a quick moment and show you some quick pics of the Vintage Farmhouse Block of the Month quilt. It is finally put together and on its way to the quilter. I cannot wait to see it all finished and quilted and bound.... and beautiful! I am so in love with this quilt ladies, I can't even tell you!
Its a dreary kind of day so the photos are not the greatest but I thought it was time to at lesast show you something. We will do a real photo shoot when the lovely Diana has done her magic! Coming soon!
By the time you read this, I will most likely be deep in the throws of booth setup! I am on my way to Houston Quilt Market and I just wanted to pop in really quick and give you a quick sneak peek....

Fall is in the air around here! Finally the weather seems to be turning a little bit toward my absolute favorite season of the year! Almost time for all my favorite sweaters to come out!!
Last week we released a new Halloween Kit in what has become our annual Halloween project made from a mix of blacks, oranges, greys and creams. We love creating these projects so much and look forward to them every year. The quilts are not from a certain line or Fig Tree collection but instead are a mix of different MODA fabrics, always starting with a few of our favorite Fig Tree oranges and going from there to see what we can come up with! Its one of my favorite parts of the process... the creating of a color palette!
In this year's bundle, the fabrics were just screaming to be made into one of our newest patterns, Navajo Stars. Now I love the original Navajo Stars ALOT... one of my all time favorite quilts.
Navajo Stars is created entirely from SOMERSET fabrics!
Originally this pattern was inspired by this quilt below. I absolutely fell in love with those stars but had NO INTENTION of making them out of hexagons. When I squinted, I saw strips and we had a Honeybun coming with our collection so it was one of those light bulb moments!
And the moment we started working on it, it just looked and felt like the designs in a traditional Navajo blanket. Hence the name.
But I am also pretty sure that I like it just as much as this years Halloween bundle quilt... SPIDERWEB! Same pattern, different colors!
But ofcourse we had way too many good leftovers and so we created a second quilt with what we stil had in the bundle....
And as promised to those of you who purchased the kit [we are making up more this week for those of you still interested], here is the info on the HALLOWEEN CHECKERBOARDS quilt, the second quilt from the bundle...
CLICK HERE for the Checkerboard Instructions in a PDF. The fnished size can be up to 58" x 66"... a perfect lap throw that can be whipped up so fast you could have it done this season!
Thanks everyone for coming along on our tour, for shopping our sale and for helping us to have such a wonderful week! Its been a lot of fun to read so many of your comments and to find out what Fig Tree goodies you might be working on next.
I can't wait to see some of those projects finished! If you don't already, follow us on INSTAGRAM and tag me when you are working on something Fig Tree so I can see what you are up to. Its really such a fun way to keep up with each other in an informal way! We are figtreeandco in case you are looking for us.
I hope that you learned something fun and interesting about each and every one of us on this tour, I know I did!
Today I have a few quick things to share with you...
A NEW KIT
What started off as an impromptu Halloween mix kit a few years ago has become a highly popular annual event with an almost cult following of classic Halloween "flavored" kits each year and this year is no different! You guys are the best customers ever!
The kits are a wonderful mix of MODA designers and the oranges, greys, blacks and creams are handpicked to work together in these classic designs. This year's kit is a Halloween take on our very popular NAVAJO STARS pattern and we are so happy with the result [the quilt literally came back from Diana's this afternoon so it is not even bound]. Speaking of quilting... don't you love it???
Anyway, this year's kit consists of a bundle of 11 fabrics and a cream with dot fabric for the background. For more info, click HERE.
