Binding came with your program [the darker red] so you should have that. The backing… we have the cream dot as an option or several other cream prints that would look lovely. Let me know!

The backing is the grey/cream sampler fabric #37061 in the grey color [its an older fabric that I am not sure tha is available anywhere which is why I didn't specify what it was] . The quilter is Diana Johnson of course... I can't believe I forgot to give you her name! If you are interested in having her quilt something for you, just email me and I will send your info to her!

Thank you so much for shopping with us! We have had a lot of fun too but are now just in need of a long, long nap :-). Oh wait, I guess we have to get all these goodies out to you first LOL! The British Scissors are just from one of our regular distributors and are available at local quilt shops. We may offer them again in the new year! Merry Christmas, Joanna

There were several different tins, some filled others not. You purchased a plain tin with nothing inside. If you ever want to see your orders, simply log into your account and you can see your order history. Thanks so much

Unfortunately it does not look like MODA produces them any more. I will double check.

Let me try to explain again… only the newsletter comes exactly on time, in the morning on the day scheduled. That is why at the beginning of the sale, we explained that only the newsletter and INSTAGRAM come immediately and right when we intend them to. If you are signed up for other alerts or for a subscription to the blog through email or any other email aggregate program, those often come the next day and at random times. You cannot rely on those for the updates. We have no control over when those come since they are a third party program and not regulated by us in any way. Same is true of Facebook. Facebook determines which posts you see and which ones you dont unless you change your settings to receive all the mail from a particular person. The emails that come straight from us, our newsletter, comes when it has been scheduled to come and it comes to everyone at the same time. The other forms of communication are normally fine but not fine when you have a time sensitive sale such as this one. If you are getting something the next day, that is most likely your email subscription to the blog and has nothing to do with our newsletter that comes through a program called CONSTANT CONTACT. Hopefully this helps explain the mysterious emails the following day…. Merry Christmas, Joanna
