The Quilter's Planner 2017


There has been a resurgence in planner popularity in the last couple of years, but not all are created equal! And The Quilter's Planner has been created specifically for us quilters!! 

I’m generally a digital kind of girl, preferring to go as paper free as possible. But when it comes to planning my quilting activities, I felt that my digital approach just wasn’t cutting it.  So I went on the hunt for a solution earlier this year and found The Quilter’s Planner!! Only to find out it was sold out. And by sold out, I mean every site that had carried it was completely out of stock.  And it didn’t look like any would be replenished.  I had missed out.

I immediately signed up for the newsletter to promptly know when the next edition would be available.  This year I wasn’t taking any chances. When I got the notice yesterday that pre-sales were in full swing I quickly clicked my link and reserved my copy!  Woot woot 2017 will see my quilty projects all organized! At least that’s the plan ;)

I’m even more thrilled that my purchase means I am supporting a fellow quilter, the lovely Stephanie Palmer from Late Night Quilter, who also happened to be my hive leader in the New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop.  Yay for keeping it within the community J

  1. It's a lovely planner, I just wish it was available on Amazon Uk, or anywhere in the UK. Postage always makes everything expensive.

    1. I so hear you, Kate! I wasn't going to get it once I saw how expensive international shipping was, but then I remember how sad I was that I missed out last year, and so I bit the bullet. I figure it's good to treat yourself every once in awhile 😉

  2. The planner looks amazing and I even had it in my cart, but when I saw the cost of the shipping plus how much more I would have to pay with our Canadian dollar, I just couldn't justify it. Looks like I'll have to check yours out when you receive it! :-)

    1. I know :( it was such a tough call. I too was disappointed when I saw how much shipping was and then the exchange on top of that. But I justified it when I factored in how much it would cost me to purchase 14 patterns + a planner. Still not inexpensive, but it helped put my mind at ease a little ;) And I will definitely bring it to the MMQG meetings later this fall!!

  3. I missed out last year, too, so I was ready for the planner this year. I hope it will help me keep my deadlines organized!
