I posted this in the applique group and Gini encouraged me to post over here as well!
I am interested in starting a "Applique of the Month" club. I haven't worked out all the details, but this would be a subscription service. So far I have planned a package of 12 appliques would be sent out once a month. A subscriber would get an invoice via PayPal and once paid the package would be mailed. If a person doesn't want the shape that month, they could just let me know.
My appliques are all cut with my Accuquilt Studio die cut machine. I only use 100% cotton material. The paper backed fusible web is already applied. I have a variety of shapes from holiday to baby. I think the holiday shapes would need to be mailed out about 3 months before the holiday, so people have time to get a table runner, sweatshirt, T shirt, placemats, banner, etc. done in time.
If I start in October (a very tentative date right now!) I would mail Christmas lights, November--snowflakes, December--hearts, January--shamrocks, February--Easter eggs, March--baby feet, April--baby hands, May--flags and stars, June--flip flops, July--fall leaves, August--birthday cakes, September--3" alphabet set. I have a ton more shapes, this is just to start.
Right now, I think I would need to charge $5/month/package--you could certainly sign up for multiple packages every month. That would cover my material, PayPal fees, and shipping.
What do you think? I thought at "applique" group would be the best place to start this conversation!
Rose , I like it , I think it would work just fine.
