Summer Celebration 2021

Welcome back for another year of fun, sun, and cute! 

Since last year's event was a huge success, I'm bringing it back again this year. We're still a bit away, so be sure to check back for updates as we move closer to the start of the event! 

The Bat Picnic Is Back! 

The bats are having a picnic and they've invited you to join the fun. Each day in July will feature a different bat bringing their favorite food to the party. 

The biggest complaint last year was I only released 1 of each design so this year I will be releasing 3 of each! 

Bats will be previewed on social media around 12pm EDT and available for sale at 3pm EDT. As usual, they are first come, first serve with no cart holds or reservations. 

Delicious Discounts! 

Start a new summer project with 20% off all sewing patterns! This discount will be automatic applied to your cart starting July 1st at 12:00 am EDT and ending July 31st at 11:59pm EDT. No need to use a coupon code. 

In addition, summer themed patterns will be even further reduced! The avocado, toucan, and flamingo floaty will all be $2 off. 

Fantastic Freebies! 

Orders for physical items of $10 or more will ship with cheesy summer themed goodies like temporary tattoos, snap bracelets, and mini flamingos. It's just a fun little bonus that might bring a smile to your face. 

(If you don't want these freebies included in your order, just let me know in the Notes to Seller section at checkout

A Glorious Giveaway!

I don't have the details for this finalized yet, but there will be free stuff :P Check back later for more info! 

All giveaways are open worldwide to people 18+ 


Will you release X bat again? \ When will X bat be in stock?
These are not regular stock, once they are sold they are sold. There is a chance I will make one again or I will open custom slots in the future and you can ask to have one created (assuming I have the materials available), but I have no plans to re-stock any of them in the immediate future.

When will the bats be listed? 
They'll be available at 3pm EDT

How do I buy a bat? 
You'll need to refresh at 3pm EDT and, when it appears, add it to your cart, and complete checkout. You must fully complete checkout to claim a bat, it is not held or reserved once it is in your cart, other people can still buy it until it is purchased. 

When will X bat be listed? / What bats will you list?
The order they will be listed in is a surprise, you'll have to check back daily at noon to see the preview post. The mystery is part of the fun, though some bats you may see in previews before they are listed for sale. 

What if I don't want the freebies in my order, it would be wasteful to send them since I will throw them away? 
Feel free to let me know when you checkout! There's a link on the cart page that says, "Add instructions for seller" and if you click on that, a pop up for a text window will show up for you. Simply enter something like, "No freebies for me, thanks." and I will exclude them from your order.

Do you ship internationally? 
At this time I do not ship to the UK due to the VAT law changes and I do not ship to Italy due to restrictions on importing plush toys. This may be subject to change as the EU is enacting new VAT laws July 1st, but at this time I fall below their thresholds. 

That time doesn't ever work for me!
My release times aren't chosen at random, they are based off when my customers are engaging the most with my content. I am never going to please everyone 100%, but this is when the majority of my followers seem to be active and available. Engagement is consistently highest from 12-3pm, regardless of what day of the week it is. So if you want to see the times of my event releases change, be sure to engage with my content (by liking, commenting, and sharing it) at times when you are available. If I see shifts in my audiences engagement, I'll shift my releases based on the information I have.

I don't see the bats at the update time! 
Your computer may have a cache of the page saved so it can load faster. I recommend hard refreshing when you reload. This forces your browser to load the most recent version of the page. This will vary based on your browser and operating system. For example, if you are using Chrome on Windows you'll need to hold down Ctrl and hit F5 to hard refresh. 

I will also release a direct link to each individual plush so you may want to go directly to that. 

I tried to complete checkout and the bat sold out before I could, but I was charged anyway! 
If you enter payment information, but are unable to finish checkout, a hold may be placed on your account depending on your bank and checkout method used (it seems to happen most frequently with Paypal and when using a debit card). Holds will go away on their own after a few days, you can also call your bank and confirm it is a hold and not a charge. If you were actually charged and it is not just a hold, let me know and I can refund you. (Note, I cannot see or release holds on my end since I am not the one taking the payments directly, that is handled either my Shopify's payment system, Shop Pay, or Paypal, but I can see fully completed transactions)
