About Our Kits
Kit Club Changes Effective October 1, 2015
Can you believe it's been 10 years since our Kit Club began? 10 years is a monumental milestone in the ever-evolving scrapbooking industry. The Kit Club has watched trends come and go – dabbling in many of them in our kits -- and watched as cutting edge products revolutionized the way we put our pages together. We've had many opportunities to reflect on our individual philosophies about memory preservation and paper artistry.
I love this hobby, and I love the business of scrapbooking. And I especially love kits. So it is with mixed emotions that I've decided that it is time to retire our Monthly Kit Club. The October kit will be the last monthly kit.
Many factors beyond our control have taken the fun out of putting together kits month after month. A shrinking wholesale market, fewer Canadian suppliers, increased shipping costs, the declining Canadian dollar, product shortages, shipping delays – just to name a few – affect our ability to meet our deadlines and maintain the quality and value that you've come to expect.
On a personal level, I've been dealing with issues that have taken a toll on my creativity and energy levels. For a while there I lost my mojo. Things are on the upswing now, so don't worry about me!
By no means is this the end of Memory Workshop Kits! We will still be making kits, just not on a fixed schedule and not by subscription. Letting go of the old format means that we have more flexibility in the contents and price of each kit. We will have more freedom in the project designs. In fact, we'll be trying out a few kit formats to see what people like best.
And YOU will have more flexibility too. You will be able to order the kits you want, with the extras that fit your style and your budget, with no commitment. When a kit is ready to be released, we'll reveal it, you'll order it, and we'll ship it. So much simpler.
After the October kit payments are processed, current members won't need to take any action. Recurring PayPal subscriptions will be canceled. Prepaid PayPal subscriptions will be credited for any unused months. If you've provided a credit card number for your purchases, we will continue to store it confidentially, unless you request otherwise. (No account information is stored online)
Past Monthly Kits are available online and in our mobile store, while supplies last.
As for the other divisions of The Memory Workshop, I am as busy as ever bringing the mobile store to weekend retreats and day crops around town. Requests for me to teach classes have been coming more frequently lately, so if you're interested in taking a class or hosting one, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Over the years I've received lots of support and love from dedicated subscribers, and I appreciate all your kind words. I want to thank everyone for your commitment to the Kit Club and for your continued business over the past 10 years. I'm excited to see where the next 10 years takes us in our scrapbooking adventures.
