12 Days of Christmas

THANK YOU and Some Info!

THANK YOU FOR JOINING US THIS YEAR

 

12daysthankyou-1

 

FOR THE 6TH ANNUAL 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS SALE!!

I just wanted to send another quick thank you to all of you who followed along and/or participated in this year's sale! Each year since we started this insane sale we think about whether or not to continue it... both because it is such a crazy amount of work and because we know that each year a few people will be sad and some mad, because they haven't gotten what they hoped for. But each year, we weigh how many people participate and have fun, how many of you get all of your stocking stuffers doing this sale, how many people enjoy the excitement and anticipation of the "hunt" and how many of you have fun following along even if you don't get all the goodies you were hoping for... and we take a deep breathe and do it once again. We sincerely do this for you, dear customers, and we hope that you believe us when we say that we so appreciate all of your support and excitement for our business. As both a fabric designer and a small business owner, I am deeply grateful for each and every one of you. And even though I will be spending all of today on the couch, not moving a muscle... other than maybe a little bit of tree decorating and eating leftover pie... I am glad for another successful sale and hope that we have the energy to do it all again next year! Perhaps we might shrink it to 6 days next time around... after all, the elves are all getting a little bit older!

 A FEW EXTRAS!

If you have received notification that your box has already shipped then your box is on its way to you as we speak. Thank you for shopping with us!

If you haven't received notification yet that means that your box will be audited and shipped starting on Monday... and the elves will keep shipping until all the boxes have gone out. Thank you for your patience!

If your box hasn't shipped yet, you still have time to add a few goodies. We have found a few little things here and there as we were organizing ourselves on Friday and will put them up on Sunday, please feel free to add them to your boxes if you know that you have space!


 **************************

A COUPLE REALLY IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW...

  1. We are more or less unable to make any more of most of the kits that were offered during the sale. We are however going to be making more of the AND THE STOCKINGS WERE HUNG quilt from Thursday since it is a brand new pattern. If you are interested in that kit AFTER & SEPARATE FROM YOUR 12 DAYS BOX, YOU NEED TO EMAIL ME joanna@figtreequilts.com. THAT IS THE ONLY WAY YOU CAN GET ADDED TO THE LIST. WE ARE WORKING ON GETTING THOSE KITS DONE NEXT WEEK!
  2. If you bought a box and didn't fill it [or not at all for some reason] and your items will go in an envelope... WE WILL TAKE THE DIFFERENCE OF APP. $6 AND DONATE IT TO OUR LOCAL FOOD BANK. FIG TREE WILL MATCH THOSE DONATIONS. LOOK FOR A BLOG POST ON WEDNESDAY OF NEXT WEEK TO SEE HOW MUCH WE DONATED. IF THAT IS YOU, THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTRIBUTION! FIG TREE WILL MATCH THE AMOUNT!

Joanna, Eric and the very tired elves!

12 Days of Christmas: Day #12

Happy, Happy Friday Everyone!

Welcome to the 12th day of the

12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS SALE!

Wow... we have together made it to the last day of this crazy 12 day sale! Thank you so much for sticking it out with us. Some of you have filled box after box and some of you just a few stocking stuffers here and there but I want to thank each one of you for following along and participating with us. This is the 6th year we have done this and although it is nuts and we know that each year a few people are unhappy that they didn't get what they wanted, most of you have a great time and enjoy the spirit of this sale!

Thank you so much for taking this ride with us!

SPECIAL INFO ABOUT THE LAST DAY

The last day of the sale is a little different than all the rest. Those of you committed to this sale have become so incredibly good at checking the moment we go live and grabbing your goodies right away, that it is like a Black Friday sale around her every day and we are cleaned out of most fabric items in minutes.

For Friday, we will start to post some products at in the earlier morning PST, then some throughout the morning so as to give the best chance to as many different people… or perhaps even a better chance to some who haven't been too lucky yet. We will not send out any other notifications about when or what!

Given the random times and varying stock of the items we are posting, we won't be showing the items here. If you find them and want them, nab them.

For those who miss them, at least you won't have to be sad about what you missed! Good luck!  

Thanks so much for shopping with us!  Keep reading below….

 

Welcome to DAY #12!!

  DAY12

ON THE TWELVE DAY OF CHRISTMAS, MY TRUE LOVE GAVE TO ME...

ELEVEN ELVES A GRIPING [I don't really want these for Christmas but its just the reality right now :-)]

TEN FIGS A SLEEPING [yes, right about now sleeping is one of the things I am dreaming of!]

NINE LADIES DANCING [we could certainly use a good dance party right about now]

EIGHT CANDLES TWINKLING [I definitely have a thing for candles!]

SEVEN MUSHROOMS DREAMING [yes, I am completely giving up on the rhyming now!!]

A COUPLE REALLY IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW...

  1. Boxes will start to ship [for many of you, your first box has already filled and you are on your second box] by noon on Friday. So if you want to add patterns or other things to your box, do so in the morning so you don't miss out. Think about adding patterns, cream background fabric or some of your favorite notions to that lovely little box of goodies. The leftover gift items WILL BE ON SALE TODAY so don't forget those! Also, don't forget to check out THE NOTIONS SHOP for all of our favorites!
  2. We will stop adding products at noon PST so you don't need to keep checking after that.
  3. We are more or less unable to make any more of most of the kits that were offered during the sale. We are however going to be making more of the AND THE STOCKINGS WERE HUNG quilt from Thursday since it is a brand new pattern. If you are interested in that kit AFTER & SEPARATE FROM YOUR 12 DAYS BOX, YOU NEED TO EMAIL ME joanna@figtreequilts.com. THAT IS THE ONLY WAY YOU CAN GET ADDED TO THE LIST.
  4. But… we are sometimes able to get more of the notions and gift items after the sale is over. If you are still dieing for one or more of the gift or notion items, let us know right away [like today would be great :-)]. If we get enough requests for something, we create a list and order more if the products are still available from the distributor. As long as you are okay if they ship out after Christmas, and not as a part of this sale, we are good. So don't hesitate to ask… as they say, it never hurts to ask!
  5. If you bought a box and didn't fill it [or not at all for some reason] and your items will go in an envelope... WE WILL TAKE THE DIFFERENCE OF APP. $6 AND DONATE IT TO OUR LOCAL FOOD BANK. FIG TREE WILL MATCH THOSE DONATIONS. LOOK FOR A BLOG POST ON WEDNESDAY OF NEXT WEEK TO SEE HOW MUCH WE DONATED. IF THAT IS YOU, THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTRIBUTION!
  6. And most importantly… thank you for shopping with us! This was our 6th annual 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS SALE and let's just say.... you guys clearly love this sale more than ever! So thank you for joining us and we really hope it is like Christmas when you receive and open your box [es]!!

Joanna, Eric and the very tired elves!

SPECIAL NOTE FOR THE LAST 2 DAYS:

Each year we try to create an entirely new Christmas quilt pattern for 12 DAYS and this time around we are proud to introduce to you, AND THE STOCKINGS WERE HUNG.

A Fig Tree take on a stocking quilt, our AND THE STOCKINGS WERE HUNG quilt is set on a soft grey French General background for a classic, soft feel. Each stocking is a completely scrappy patchwork, a tiny quilt all on its own! 

And here's another awesome thing... … just 5 stocking blocks on each side of the quilt. Embellished with a little patchwork faux needlework, perhaps to resemble a Nordic sweater. The background fabric is one of our favorite French General linen backgrounds for a classic Christmas quilt that we think you are sure to love. Kit includes all the fabrics to make the stocking, the background and the patchwork. Kit also includes binding and pattern. Size: app. 59" x 73"

Not sure which one is my favorite but I am pretty partial to the vintage typewriter!

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, YOU HAVE TO "FOLLOW" US IN SOME WAY.
EACH DAY WE WILL SEND OUT OUR NEWSLETTER, WRITE A BLOG POST AND TRY TO LET YOU KNOW VIA INSTAGRAM. 

THE MOST RELIABLE WAYS ARE THE NEWSLETTER AND INSTAGRAM. IF YOU SUBSCRIBE TO THE BLOG, THE SUBSCRIPTION OFTEN COMES LATE OR THE FOLLOWING DAY. THE DESCRIPTION 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. Generally the blog subscription is a wonderful way to know what is going on around here and to see updates and will often give you info that won't be in our newsletter. But for information that is as timely as updates about the 12 DAYS sale, the newsletter or IG are the ways to go because they are immediate and you can see/notice them right away.

IF YOU HAVE THE CAPABILITY TO CREATE SOME KIND OF AN ALERT, YOU MIGHT WANT TO DO THAT.
 
 
GENERAL 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS INFO:

PLEASE READ AS SOME INFO HAS CHANGED
* 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! WE HAVE SO MANY YUMMY GOODIES THIS YEAR! Each day a special DAILY DEAL 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 anticipate the demand, we are often surprised by your enthusiasm and are limited by how much stock we can carry of any given item. EACH DAY IS BASICALLY A LIMITED QUANTITY FLASH SALE.
 
* 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. SEE MORE INFO BELOW. 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. 
 
 
 
BUY-A-BOX INFORMATION:
Just like in past years of the 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS we offer you the choice to hold all of your daily goodies to be shipped together at the end of the sale so you can save money on the shipping costs and keep adding goodies throughout the 12 days! Its an awesome option and a lot of fun! This year we are continuing our special shipping system, called "BUY-A-BOX" and have made a few changes/additions.
 
This is how it will work:
 
Given how popular this sale is, and how crazy it is for us, we have had to simplify some of our processes! This year, regardless of whether you think you will get the smaller stocking stuffer kinds of items or the "bigger ticket" items and you are a die hard 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS fan, you have to BUY-A-BOX as your shipping option. If your goodies "spill" out of the medium box, we will upgrade you to a large box... AT NO EXTRA CHARGE. Once your large box fills, we will send it to you along with an email that your box has shipped. Depending on what day of the sale it is and if you plan on continuing for the remaining days, you will then be able to decide if you wish to buy another box in order to continue with the sale or not.
 
If your box does not fill throughout the sale and all we need is an envelope, WE WILL DONATE THE SHIPPING DIFFERENCE TO OUR LOCAL FOOD BANK. We will downgrade those orders into envelopes, calculate the difference and once we have everyone's "donations", we will let everyone know via our newsletter what that amount is and donate it to the Alameda County Food Bank. IN FACT WE WILL MATCH ANY AMOUNT THAT GETS ACCUMULATED FROM UNUSED SHIPPING CHARGES AND ADD THAT TO THE CHECK. So please don't worry about whether or not you are going to fill up your box. The extra $7 or so that you might not end up needing will go to a very worthy cause during this holiday time. Thank you in advance!!
 
The biggest change from previous years [but the same as last year] - for those of you who have participated before- is that once your allotted box has filled, WE WILL NEED TO SHIP IT AND YOU CAN DECIDE IF YOU WISH TO PURCHASE ANOTHER BOX AND KEEP SHOPPING THE SALE FURTHER. This is still a fabulous shipping deal! Not only because we will be upgrading you one shipping category at our cost, but because you can keep shopping knowing that we will continue to put items in your box until we absolutely cannot add anything else! BELIEVE ME WHEN I TELL YOU THAT THE ELVES TAKE GREAT PLEASURE IN FILLING EVERY LAST CREVICE BEFORE THEY SHIP YOUR BOX. The reason we are changing the shipping from the past is because of the sheer volume of customers that outgrew their box multiple times. The result was a bit more chaos than the elves knew what to do with around her toward the end of the sale!
 
So here are your steps:

1. So that you are ready for the sale on Friday, BUY-A BOX now so that you can focus on purchasing your items once they start going up on Day #1. Given how quickly the items go, etc, buying your box ahead of time is your best bet!
 
2. When you are buying your goodies, select the "I BOUGHT A BOX" choice in the shipping drop down menu so that you are not charged for shipping each time you place a new item in your box. This is basically your free shipping option for the rest of the items [until you fill your box].

3. If you do not select "I BOUGHT A BOX" as your shipping option when you purchase items, we will assume that you wish to receive the product right away and you want it shipped right away and you do not wish to accumulate items. Believe it or not, there are many customers for whom this is their own personal Christmas and they look forward to receiving the packages each and every day. Enjoy! 

4.Please know that if you forget to select the "I BOUGHT A BOX" option for shipping during checkout, we will not be able to change it. Due to the sheer volume of 12 DAYS customers, we really only have the opportunity to see what is chosen and ship or not ship based on the info you have provided during checkout. Thank you so much for understanding!

Remember you will BUY-A-BOX only once before the sale begins or at the time of your first purchase. This will make all of us- you and us- ready for the sale before it even begins!! You can of course still BUY-A-BOX on the first day of the sale or on any other day that you begin shopping the sale. Basically if you want to accumulate your goodies, you must BUY-A-BOX first. If you fill up your box, we will ship it to you and email you right away to let you know that you will need to purchase a new box if you want to keep shopping.

International orders will be assessed actual shipping charges at the time of shipping. International orders cannot use paypal since we need to be able to access the payment info during shipping.

 We love flour sack kitchen towels and use them every single day. Embellishing them just a little bit for each season is one of our favorite hand projects and makes them an immediate Christmas "decoration" or a thoughtful gift.. It immediately gives the room a bit of seasonal cheer! These holiday towels are finished off with a few of my favorite Chestnut Street fabrics, a little cream felt and some wonderful embroidery. Love those little berries! The kit has some special goodies in it and has enough fabric to make 2 complete towels.. one for you and for your bestir? Kit includes the pattern sheets, 2 flour sacks, fabrics for two coordinating trims and appliqué. It also includes (3) full spools of Aurifil floss in red, green and brown. Each spool has 18 yds. of 6-strand floss and the spools themselves are a $15.00 value!

We love scissors and I'm pretty sure you guys do too when I watch them fly off our shelves! Every quilter and sewer needs a few different pairs on any given day for so many different tasks!
These little 4" sets of Marks Embroidery Scissors are a fully forged construction, polished stainless steel, and ideal for fine details cutting tasks. Each pair comes fro us in a lovely little polka dot case in either red, apple green or light blue. Love these!

Aquatin


Aquatinopen

If you have shopped with us before, you will know that I kind of have a thing for tins... all kinds, all shapes, all cute little excuses to put things inside of them. So you know we were so excited to find these new tins by MODA at the last Spring Market. All three of them are wonderful colors with a cute saying on each. The long skinny yellow ones are great for pencils or scissors or other longer, flat items and they read "Well-Behaved Quilters Rarely Make History". The medium apple green tins are great for threads or floss or anything else that needs to be corralled in a cute little box and reads "Quilters Gonna Quilt". And the smallest of the three, the soft aqua option, is perfect for coins, candies or even as a little pill box for your purse and reads "Make Beautiful Things". This one is for the cute aqua tin that measures 3" x 2 1/2".

If you do not select "I BOUGHT A BOX" as your shipping option when you purchase items, we will assume that you wish to receive the product right away and you want it shipped right away and you do not wish to accumulate items. Believe it or not, there are many customers for whom this is their own personal Christmas and they look forward to receiving the packages each and every day. Enjoy! 

4.Please know that if you forget to select the "I BOUGHT A BOX" option for shipping during checkout, we will not be able to change it. Due to the sheer volume of 12 DAYS customers, we really only have the opportunity to see what is chosen and ship or not ship based on the info you have provided during checkout. Thank you so much for understanding!

Remember you will BUY-A-BOX only once before the sale begins or at the time of your first purchase. This will make all of us- you and us- ready for the sale before it even begins!! You can of course still BUY-A-BOX on the first day of the sale or on any other day that you begin shopping the sale. Basically if you want to accumulate your goodies, you must BUY-A-BOX first. If you fill up your box, we will ship it to you and email you right away to let you know that you will need to purchase a new box if you want to keep shopping.

International orders will be assessed actual shipping charges at the time of shipping. International orders cannot use paypal since we need to be able to access the payment info during shipping.

ON THE NINTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS, MY TRUE LOVE GAVE TO ME...

NINE LADIES DANCING [we could certainly use a good dance party right about now]

EIGHT CANDLES TWINKLING [I definitely have a thing for candles!]

SEVEN MUSHROOMS DREAMING [yes, I am completely giving up on the rhyming now!!]

SIX TREES A SWAYING [that's the best I can do... I guess my brain is gone by day 6]

FIVE GOLDEN RINGS [that's just fine, I'll take 5 golden rings]

FOUR FALLING NERDS [my house is already filled with those but more the merrier I guess]

THREE FRENCH MEN [Ha, ha… I can barely handle the one Columbian man I have now!]

TWO PURPLE GLOVES [I know, I know, purple is not really my thing but no other color rhymes with turtle!:-)]

AND A CHICKEN IN A FIG TREE.

 

OUR KIT OF THE DAY:

JUNIPER & CHESTNUT & PEPPERMINT JELLY [ two kits from classic patterns]  

First up, PEPPERMINT JELLY

Pepperminjelly small
  

…..One of my favorite 12 Days things to do is to find some of my favorite Fig Tree patterns and redo them with Christmas motifs. Jelly Girl was one of our first best selling jelly roll patterns and it goes together like a dream with no y-seams or special rulers. I thought it was high time we say a Peppermint Jelly version of this quilt! Kit includes the reds, greens and creams that you see for this Christmas version. We used a few of our favorite cream prints and text for the fun variety in the backgrounds! Kit also includes binding and pattern. Size: app. 67" x 68 1/2".

 

JUNIPER & CHESTNUT

Chesnut Tree finalsmall 

Juniper just begs to be remade a bit more Christmasy" than before so this time we used a Chestnut Street Jelly roll, tool all the red, green, grey and a few black and creams prints and made up some holiday trees. We saved the aquas, oranges, yellows, etc for another project… kind of like 2 in one! We used a few of our favorite cream prints and text for the fun variety in the backgrounds! Kit also includes binding and pattern. Size: app. 57" x 73" 

 

OUR NOTION OF THE DAY:

MACAROONS [in three color choices] 

  Macaroons

Perhaps you have noticed by now that I am a sucker for cute notions… because it's not like I NEED another tape measure… but I HAVE TO HAVE one of each of these little cuties. Each retractable tape measures 60" and comes in three yummy "macaroon" colors: lavender, hot pink or golden yellow.
Fun for you or your friends!

 

OUR GIFT ITEM OF THE DAY:

CAVALLINI VINTAGE STICKERS [oh my gosh I kind of want to label everything in the house with these]:

Perfect for pretty much labeling anything: jars, file folders, boxes, scrapbooking, baked goods… anything!!

  Vintagestickers

LABEL-VINLAB-2T

 

LABEL-VINLAB-3T

 

Vintagestickersinside

If you haven't already noticed, I am a bit in love with the Cavallini products. They are quality goods with amazing vintage images that come packaged in the cutest tins… pretty much unresistable to me personally!! And I love to give them as gifts since each one is a perfect little package! These are PERFECT for all you scrapbookers out there or for decorating home made kitchen items like breads that you are going to give as gifts, etc.
Each tin comes with 24 sheets of 100 plus assorted stickers.
Perfect for correspondence, art projects, and embellishments

EACH DAY WE WILL SEND OUT OUR NEWSLETTER, WRITE A BLOG POST AND TRY TO LET YOU KNOW VIA INSTAGRAM.

THE DESCRIPTION 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.
 
 
GENERAL 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS INFO:

PLEASE READ AS SOME INFO HAS CHANGED
* 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! WE HAVE SO MANY YUMMY GOODIES THIS YEAR! Each day a special DAILY DEAL 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 anticipate the demand, we are often surprised by your enthusiasm and are limited by how much stock we can carry of any given item. EACH DAY IS BASICALLY A LIMITED QUANTITY FLASH SALE.
 
* 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. SEE MORE INFO BELOW. 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. 
 
 
 
BUY-A-BOX INFORMATION:
Just like in past years of the 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS we offer you the choice to hold all of your daily goodies to be shipped together at the end of the sale so you can save money on the shipping costs and keep adding goodies throughout the 12 days! Its an awesome option and a lot of fun! This year we are continuing our special shipping system, called "BUY-A-BOX" and have made a few changes/additions.
 
This is how it will work:
 
Given how popular this sale is, and how crazy it is for us, we have had to simplify some of our processes! This year, regardless of whether you think you will get the smaller stocking stuffer kinds of items or the "bigger ticket" items and you are a die hard 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS fan, you have to BUY-A-BOX as your shipping option. If your goodies "spill" out of the medium box, we will upgrade you to a large box... AT NO EXTRA CHARGE. Once your large box fills, we will send it to you along with an email that your box has shipped. Depending on what day of the sale it is and if you plan on continuing for the remaining days, you will then be able to decide if you wish to buy another box in order to continue with the sale or not.
 
If your box does not fill throughout the sale and all we need is an envelope, WE WILL DONATE THE SHIPPING DIFFERENCE TO OUR LOCAL FOOD BANK. We will downgrade those orders into envelopes, calculate the difference and once we have everyone's "donations", we will let everyone know via our newsletter what that amount is and donate it to the Alameda County Food Bank. IN FACT WE WILL MATCH ANY AMOUNT THAT GETS ACCUMULATED FROM UNUSED SHIPPING CHARGES AND ADD THAT TO THE CHECK. So please don't worry about whether or not you are going to fill up your box. The extra $7 or so that you might not end up needing will go to a very worthy cause during this holiday time. Thank you in advance!!
 
The biggest change from previous years [but the same as last year] - for those of you who have participated before- is that once your allotted box has filled, WE WILL NEED TO SHIP IT AND YOU CAN DECIDE IF YOU WISH TO PURCHASE ANOTHER BOX AND KEEP SHOPPING THE SALE FURTHER. This is still a fabulous shipping deal! Not only because we will be upgrading you one shipping category at our cost, but because you can keep shopping knowing that we will continue to put items in your box until we absolutely cannot add anything else! BELIEVE ME WHEN I TELL YOU THAT THE ELVES TAKE GREAT PLEASURE IN FILLING EVERY LAST CREVICE BEFORE THEY SHIP YOUR BOX. The reason we are changing the shipping from the past is because of the sheer volume of customers that outgrew their box multiple times. The result was a bit more chaos than the elves knew what to do with around her toward the end of the sale!
 
So here are your steps:

1. So that you are ready for the sale on Friday, BUY-A BOX now so that you can focus on purchasing your items once they start going up on Day #1. Given how quickly the items go, etc, buying your box ahead of time is your best bet!
 
2. When you are buying your goodies, select the "I BOUGHT A BOX" choice in the shipping drop down menu so that you are not charged for shipping each time you place a new item in your box. This is basically your free shipping option for the rest of the items [until you fill your box].

3. If you do not select "I BOUGHT A BOX" as your shipping option when you purchase items, we will assume that you wish to receive the product right away and you want it shipped right away and you do not wish to accumulate items. Believe it or not, there are many customers for whom this is their own personal Christmas and they look forward to receiving the packages each and every day. Enjoy! 

4.Please know that if you forget to select the "I BOUGHT A BOX" option for shipping during checkout, we will not be able to change it. Due to the sheer volume of 12 DAYS customers, we really only have the opportunity to see what is chosen and ship or not ship based on the info you have provided during checkout. Thank you so much for understanding!

Remember you will BUY-A-BOX only once before the sale begins or at the time of your first purchase. This will make all of us- you and us- ready for the sale before it even begins!! You can of course still BUY-A-BOX on the first day of the sale or on any other day that you begin shopping the sale. Basically if you want to accumulate your goodies, you must BUY-A-BOX first. If you fill up your box, we will ship it to you and email you right away to let you know that you will need to purchase a new box if you want to keep shopping.

International orders will be assessed actual shipping charges at the time of shipping. International orders cannot use paypal since we need to be able to access the payment info during shipping.

So you know we were so excited to find these new tins by MODA at the last Spring Market. All of them are wonderful colors with a cute saying on each. The long skinny yellow ones are great for pencils or scissors or other longer, flat items and they read "Well-Behaved Quilters Rarely Make History ". And the medium apple green tins are great for threads or floss or anything else that needs to be corralled in a cute little box and reads "Quilters Gonna Quilt".

 Love. Love. Love. What else can I say?

When I first discovered these awesome flour sack towels handmade by Stephanie from FANCY THAT DESIGN HOUSE, it was instant love. You know I wanted one of every single thing she makes. But I had to settle on a few favorites to share with you for the 12 DAYS SALE.
The colors are saturated and yummy and the towels are soft and wonderful to use… although a few of them hang in our house instead of get put to work! They make the perfectly unique gift for a host/hostess, housewarming gift, teacher or any special occasion! And as you can see we use them as curtains in our bathroom. We trade them out seasonally :-).
Each towel measures roughly 22"x25" (expect some size variance in each towel)
Print measures roughly 9.5"x11.5" (printed on lower middle portion)

But for information that is as timely as updates about the 12 DAYS sale, the newsletter or IG are the ways to go because they are immediate and you can see/notice them right away.

IF YOU HAVE THE CAPABILITY TO CREATE SOME KIND OF AN ALERT, YOU MIGHT WANT TO DO THAT.
 
 
GENERAL 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS INFO:

PLEASE READ AS SOME INFO HAS CHANGED
* 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! WE HAVE SO MANY YUMMY GOODIES THIS YEAR! Each day a special DAILY DEAL 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 anticipate the demand, we are often surprised by your enthusiasm and are limited by how much stock we can carry of any given item. EACH DAY IS BASICALLY A LIMITED QUANTITY FLASH SALE.
 
* 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. SEE MORE INFO BELOW. 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. 
 
 
 
BUY-A-BOX INFORMATION:
Just like in past years of the 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS we offer you the choice to hold all of your daily goodies to be shipped together at the end of the sale so you can save money on the shipping costs and keep adding goodies throughout the 12 days! Its an awesome option and a lot of fun! This year we are continuing our special shipping system, called "BUY-A-BOX" and have made a few changes/additions.
 
This is how it will work:
 
Given how popular this sale is, and how crazy it is for us, we have had to simplify some of our processes! This year, regardless of whether you think you will get the smaller stocking stuffer kinds of items or the "bigger ticket" items and you are a die hard 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS fan, you have to BUY-A-BOX as your shipping option. If your goodies "spill" out of the medium box, we will upgrade you to a large box... AT NO EXTRA CHARGE. Once your large box fills, we will send it to you along with an email that your box has shipped. Depending on what day of the sale it is and if you plan on continuing for the remaining days, you will then be able to decide if you wish to buy another box in order to continue with the sale or not.
 
If your box does not fill throughout the sale and all we need is an envelope, WE WILL DONATE THE SHIPPING DIFFERENCE TO OUR LOCAL FOOD BANK. We will downgrade those orders into envelopes, calculate the difference and once we have everyone's "donations", we will let everyone know via our newsletter what that amount is and donate it to the Alameda County Food Bank. IN FACT WE WILL MATCH ANY AMOUNT THAT GETS ACCUMULATED FROM UNUSED SHIPPING CHARGES AND ADD THAT TO THE CHECK. So please don't worry about whether or not you are going to fill up your box. The extra $7 or so that you might not end up needing will go to a very worthy cause during this holiday time. Thank you in advance!!
 
The biggest change from previous years [but the same as last year] - for those of you who have participated before- is that once your allotted box has filled, WE WILL NEED TO SHIP IT AND YOU CAN DECIDE IF YOU WISH TO PURCHASE ANOTHER BOX AND KEEP SHOPPING THE SALE FURTHER. This is still a fabulous shipping deal! Not only because we will be upgrading you one shipping category at our cost, but because you can keep shopping knowing that we will continue to put items in your box until we absolutely cannot add anything else! BELIEVE ME WHEN I TELL YOU THAT THE ELVES TAKE GREAT PLEASURE IN FILLING EVERY LAST CREVICE BEFORE THEY SHIP YOUR BOX. The reason we are changing the shipping from the past is because of the sheer volume of customers that outgrew their box multiple times. The result was a bit more chaos than the elves knew what to do with around her toward the end of the sale!
 
So here are your steps:

1. So that you are ready for the sale on Friday, BUY-A BOX now so that you can focus on purchasing your items once they start going up on Day #1. Given how quickly the items go, etc, buying your box ahead of time is your best bet!
 
2. When you are buying your goodies, select the "I BOUGHT A BOX" choice in the shipping drop down menu so that you are not charged for shipping each time you place a new item in your box. This is basically your free shipping option for the rest of the items [until you fill your box].

3. If you do not select "I BOUGHT A BOX" as your shipping option when you purchase items, we will assume that you wish to receive the product right away and you want it shipped right away and you do not wish to accumulate items. Believe it or not, there are many customers for whom this is their own personal Christmas and they look forward to receiving the packages each and every day. Enjoy! 

4.Please know that if you forget to select the "I BOUGHT A BOX" option for shipping during checkout, we will not be able to change it. Due to the sheer volume of 12 DAYS customers, we really only have the opportunity to see what is chosen and ship or not ship based on the info you have provided during checkout. Thank you so much for understanding!

Remember you will BUY-A-BOX only once before the sale begins or at the time of your first purchase. This will make all of us- you and us- ready for the sale before it even begins!! You can of course still BUY-A-BOX on the first day of the sale or on any other day that you begin shopping the sale. Basically if you want to accumulate your goodies, you must BUY-A-BOX first. If you fill up your box, we will ship it to you and email you right away to let you know that you will need to purchase a new box if you want to keep shopping.

International orders will be assessed actual shipping charges at the time of shipping. International orders cannot use paypal since we need to be able to access the payment info during shipping.
 
 

12 DAYS Of Christmas: Day #6

Happy Thursday Everyone!

Welcome back to Day #6 of the

12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS SALE!

Note from previous days: We have a few notions and goodies left from previous days. Please feel free to continue to add those to your boxes in the days to come. We will keep them on the featured page until they sell out.

 We are also cutting and adding some more color bundles as we are able and will add them to the site when we can during random times. Its anyone's game and those bundles will not be announced.

A COUPLE OF PIECES OF ADVICE FROM A FEW SHOPPING PROS [aka… a few of our die hard Fig Tree shopping fans]: 

1- Log in and make sure your credit card info is up to date etc, well before you are ready to shop. Basically be ready to put your choices into your cart and check out.

2- Just because your item is in your cart, doesn't mean you have purchased it. If there are a 100 items and 200 people with it in their cart, the first 100 to check out will get the items and they will no longer be available for those that can still see it in their cart but haven't actually pushed the check out button. We are sorry but there is just no other way to do this kind of sale. Otherwise folks could just add things to their carts and hold them indefinitely. And, no, there is no way in our system to add a timer or something to that effect. 

3- Please be kind to each other and do not purchase multiples of the kits. We can't limit you on our end but do ask that as a favor for all the rest of the folks who would also love some. The notions are kind of a different animal… feel free to load up as you wish!

4- Please remember that if this is not fun for you…. PLEASE DON'T DO IT. As we say every year, this is just not for everyone. Thank you!

OUR KIT OF THE DAY:

BEN'S COLLEGE PATCHWORK KIT IN 3 DIFFERENT VERSIONS [originally created as a college patchwork in blues and greys]  

 

Retro College

 

Red & Cream College

 

Classic College Patchwork

We originally created this quilt as a last minute gift for my first child out of the next this past fall. He loved the quilt so much that he let us photo him with it literally on his way out the door to leave for school. Since we had bolts and bolts of fabric left, we decided to offer the same project to you as a kit. It was so popular with so many of you that we decided to offer it here today in 3 different combination: Classic, Retro or Red & Green. These are fun, simple patchwork quilts with a super simple patch block that you make once and then just turn around as you work on the placement of the quilt.  Hope you have fun!

Here are some mock ups of what these might look like all sewn up!

Redcreambens   Retrobens   Classicbens

The original patchwork quilt looks like this….

12 DAYS Of Christmas: Day #4

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

Welcome back to Day #4 of the

12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS SALE!

Note from previous days: We have some VINTAGE CAT & DOG TAG TINS and GREEN AND RED NEON WONDER CLIPS left from previous days. Feel free to add those into your boxes anytime! We know that yesterday's items went super crazy fast… it might have had something to do with the fact that it was Cyber Monday and everyone was ready for some online shopping! Please remember that the blog notifications are not an accurate way of getting your 12 DAYS info. If you want more tips and info, read through the fine print at the bottom of each day's post or look at Sunday's post for some extra info. Thanks so much for playing along!

 

We are also putting up some extra color bundles from yesterday in red and green for now. Please note that they will differ slightly  in fabric selection from yesterday's.

We have also found another box of twine! Woohoo! And have added those back in as well!!

If this is your first time with us, thanks so much for joining us. There is a lot of "fine print" info at the bottom of this post that you might want to read to understand how this all works...but beware that your item might sell out while you are reading LOL!!

AND A CHICKEN IN A FIG TREE.

OUR NOTION OF THE DAY:

LITTLE HOUSE PINS

Littlehouse

 

Littlehousepinssolo

You already know how I feel about these and no 12 DAYS SALE would be complete without a little restock of these in all of our studios! To be honest, I take the opportunity to restock my own pins at the same time! These have been my absolute favorite for so many years now and I know that so many of you have joined me over the years!

CLOVER PINS

My back up pins every day... the stronger, longer favorite to the Little House Pins above. These are just as awesome and the heavy duty workhorse of my studio. But still gliding through that fabric as smoothly as its friends!

FLOWER HEAD PINS

I just couldn't resist adding these little cuties to our pin line up. Sometimes I need something that stands out a bit more or to mark something as different. These lovely little red and pink flower heads were just what I was looking for! Too cute!


 

OUR GIFT ITEM OF THE DAY:

HAND CRAFTED SOY BASED CANDLES [a selection of hand crafted and hand poured soy candles from North Carolina]

Candlelit

 

3dcandletops

 

Candlewithlid

 

Singlecandle

 

3candles

 

Oh these lovely little candles... I am totally addicted to them in every scent I have tried. They are absolutely perfect for yourself and for lovely gifts this Christmas. And at this low price point... perhaps every one of your friends should get one too! Hand crafted and hand poured in North Carolina into sweet little jelly jars, these are really a must have for everyone's studio!

The MULLED CIDER is just the perfect blend of apple and home. I have one burning right now. The PUMPKIN SPICE is just the right blend of pumpkin, spice and that wonderful aroma of pie without being too sweet. The SUGARED FIGS is not only a bit perfect and our namesake but a wonderful blend of brown sugar and fig all wrapped up in one. We really couldn't love these little jelly jars any more!!!

 

DAILY SPECIAL:

ALL PURCHASES WILL BE ENTERED TO WIN A DRAWING OF A 10-PACK OF PATTERNS OF YOUR CHOOSING! OH MY GOODNESS, WHAT A FABULOUS CHRISTMAS GIFT TO YOURSELF!!

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 OUR NEWSLETTER, WRITE A BLOG POST AND TRY TO LET YOU KNOW VIA INSTAGRAM. 

THE MOST RELIABLE WAYS ARE THE NEWSLETTER AND INSTAGRAM. IF YOU SUBSCRIBE TO THE BLOG, THE SUBSCRIPTION OFTEN COMES LATE OR THE FOLLOWING DAY. THE DESCRIPTION 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. Generally the blog subscription is a wonderful way to know what is going on around here and to see updates and will often give you info that won't be in our newsletter. But for information that is as timely as updates about the 12 DAYS sale, the newsletter or IG are the ways to go because they are immediate and you can see/notice them right away.

IF YOU HAVE THE CAPABILITY TO CREATE SOME KIND OF AN ALERT, YOU MIGHT WANT TO DO THAT.
 
 
GENERAL 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS INFO:

PLEASE READ AS SOME INFO HAS CHANGED
* 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! WE HAVE SO MANY YUMMY GOODIES THIS YEAR! Each day a special DAILY DEAL 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 anticipate the demand, we are often surprised by your enthusiasm and are limited by how much stock we can carry of any given item. EACH DAY IS BASICALLY A LIMITED QUANTITY FLASH SALE.
 
* 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. SEE MORE INFO BELOW. 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. 
 
 
 
BUY-A-BOX INFORMATION:
Just like in past years of the 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS we offer you the choice to hold all of your daily goodies to be shipped together at the end of the sale so you can save money on the shipping costs and keep adding goodies throughout the 12 days! Its an awesome option and a lot of fun! This year we are continuing our special shipping system, called "BUY-A-BOX" and have made a few changes/additions.
 
This is how it will work:
 
Given how popular this sale is, and how crazy it is for us, we have had to simplify some of our processes! This year, regardless of whether you think you will get the smaller stocking stuffer kinds of items or the "bigger ticket" items and you are a die hard 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS fan, you have to BUY-A-BOX as your shipping option. If your goodies "spill" out of the medium box, we will upgrade you to a large box... AT NO EXTRA CHARGE. Once your large box fills, we will send it to you along with an email that your box has shipped. Depending on what day of the sale it is and if you plan on continuing for the remaining days, you will then be able to decide if you wish to buy another box in order to continue with the sale or not.
 
If your box does not fill throughout the sale and all we need is an envelope, WE WILL DONATE THE SHIPPING DIFFERENCE TO OUR LOCAL FOOD BANK. We will downgrade those orders into envelopes, calculate the difference and once we have everyone's "donations", we will let everyone know via our newsletter what that amount is and donate it to the Alameda County Food Bank. IN FACT WE WILL MATCH ANY AMOUNT THAT GETS ACCUMULATED FROM UNUSED SHIPPING CHARGES AND ADD THAT TO THE CHECK. So please don't worry about whether or not you are going to fill up your box. The extra $7 or so that you might not end up needing will go to a very worthy cause during this holiday time. Thank you in advance!!
 
The biggest change from previous years [but the same as last year] - for those of you who have participated before- is that once your allotted box has filled, WE WILL NEED TO SHIP IT AND YOU CAN DECIDE IF YOU WISH TO PURCHASE ANOTHER BOX AND KEEP SHOPPING THE SALE FURTHER. This is still a fabulous shipping deal! Not only because we will be upgrading you one shipping category at our cost, but because you can keep shopping knowing that we will continue to put items in your box until we absolutely cannot add anything else! BELIEVE ME WHEN I TELL YOU THAT THE ELVES TAKE GREAT PLEASURE IN FILLING EVERY LAST CREVICE BEFORE THEY SHIP YOUR BOX. The reason we are changing the shipping from the past is because of the sheer volume of customers that outgrew their box multiple times. The result was a bit more chaos than the elves knew what to do with around her toward the end of the sale!
 
So here are your steps:

1. So that you are ready for the sale on Friday, BUY-A BOX now so that you can focus on purchasing your items once they start going up on Day #1. Given how quickly the items go, etc, buying your box ahead of time is your best bet!
 
2. When you are buying your goodies, select the "I BOUGHT A BOX" choice in the shipping drop down menu so that you are not charged for shipping each time you place a new item in your box. This is basically your free shipping option for the rest of the items [until you fill your box].

3. If you do not select "I BOUGHT A BOX" as your shipping option when you purchase items, we will assume that you wish to receive the product right away and you want it shipped right away and you do not wish to accumulate items. Believe it or not, there are many customers for whom this is their own personal Christmas and they look forward to receiving the packages each and every day. Enjoy! 

4.Please know that if you forget to select the "I BOUGHT A BOX" option for shipping during checkout, we will not be able to change it. Due to the sheer volume of 12 DAYS customers, we really only have the opportunity to see what is chosen and ship or not ship based on the info you have provided during checkout. Thank you so much for understanding!

Remember you will BUY-A-BOX only once before the sale begins or at the time of your first purchase. This will make all of us- you and us- ready for the sale before it even begins!! You can of course still BUY-A-BOX on the first day of the sale or on any other day that you begin shopping the sale. Basically if you want to accumulate your goodies, you must BUY-A-BOX first. If you fill up your box, we will ship it to you and email you right away to let you know that you will need to purchase a new box if you want to keep shopping.

International orders will be assessed actual shipping charges at the time of shipping. International orders cannot use paypal since we need to be able to access the payment info during shipping.
