mailorder/emailorder—a subscription craft club

Mailorder (and later, Emailorder) was a crafty subscription-based club I started back in 2006. It was loaded with goodies mailed right to your door in a big red envelope. Inside was a craft or sewing project with directions and patterns, a professionally printed recipe card, funny money, secret handshakes and many other silly things. Each issue had a main project, such as a hat or house slippers sewing pattern, a cross-stitch pattern, or a papercut project. Later, I revised this club to be more managable by foregoing the printing, mailing and stuffing and created a digital issue sent as a PDF. These were named "Emailorder"

Many of these past issues are now avaialble as PDFs over in my Etsy shop. A few issues are gone forever, and that's okay, it just makes them more special. My favorite detail was the embroidered patch included with a subscription and sometimes I still see those patches floating around which puts a big smile on my face.

There hasn't been a new issue in a long time, but there still might be.
