Maybe the rest will turn up as members gifts. They have until April as I am not rejoining unless they have the 1 thing going again. With the odd exception, the members gifts are all I bother with.

    I think you are right about the kits -there are quite a lot of the 'get the nation crafting' kits available on their site.

    I was always a bit puzzled about them wanting to get the nation crafting. I would have thought those who watched C&C were already into crafts.

    Always look on the bright side, if you can't find it then polish up the dull side.

    My two kits arrived Monday good value
    But the extra sticker sheet ordered
    at the same time to get the capped postage has disappeared into the ether
    Showed dispatched Monday now shows invoiced courier details none
    I have been charged for the full order
    No idea why the did not send it all in one package
    You don't have to be as mad as a box of frogs to be here but it helps:mysmilie_13:

    I ordered 4 small items in addition to the club products all on one order. They split them across 2 deliveries - I am still waiting for the second one to arrive. The P&P was also split so 2 x 1.50 showing on the invoices

    Mine arrived yesterday in a similar padded envelope from Denmark!
    So that's why some bits take longer as they come directly from suppliers abroad. Doesn't really seem cost effective

    It definitely seems weird. Glad they arrived safely though.

    I have been waiting an age for something to come via eBay. Should have arrived last Friday. finally turned up today thank goodness. Not the fault of the seller either, just on a go slow with Royal Mail. The funny thing is we get told that we have to make allowances due to Covid, yet other stuff arrives at breakneck speed.

    I ordered a Crafter's Companion hot foil die that was reduced with the two club gifts but still not received die even though it is marked up as invoiced in my account. I presume it is coming direct from CC.

    As for the club gifts the starter jewellery making kit not bad at all. Looks like enough for three bracelets. The kit for Shaun the Sheep comes with everything. A ball of cream chenille, a ball of black cotton/acrylic mix, ( both are lovely yarns), a crochet hook, plastic bodkin and a shrink wrapped tube of stuffing. My only complaint is I can't read the pattern with my varifocals as the writing is so small on coloured paper I need a magnifying glass as well.

    I am a member of a threads of the month club run by a lady in France who dyes the threads to suit the time of year. This month the package was posted in the South of France from a village close to the Spanish border, but arrived with an extra sticker from the German post office! Weird - but beautiful icy coloured threads!!!
