Hi, everyone and, in particular, my wonderful Stencil of the Month Club members and stencil customers over time.

In case you missed my big announcement in my March 2022 stencil release post, I wanted to repeat it here in plainer view so everyone sees it. So, without further ado, here it is . . .

Over the course of the past year or so, my partner Confection Couture Stencils has been gathering feedback from Stencil of the Month Club members and other customers, which has been very helpful (thank you for your input!). Many of you have mentioned wanting more product variety (i.e., cutters to go with my stencils), more time to experiment with my stencils, and more tips for using them to create beautiful results. Well, we have listened and are acting on your great advice! Going forward, the Club offering will take on a brand new form designed to address all of your desires. After this month, I’ll be bundling one of my trademark Dynamic Duos™ sets, a cutter that fits those sets, and an instructional video in each release. You’ll be getting more than ever in this new kit, and the video will be so richly detailed that you’ll feel like you’re working alongside me in the kitchen!

So how will these new kits roll out? On to logistics . . . Because a video takes longer for me to produce than a typical stencil set, we will also be moving from 12 smaller releases, as we have been doing, to five of these bigger kit releases per year, all while keeping the annual Club pricing about the same. It will take me a few months to design the first of these new kits, so there will be a short hiatus in monthly releases (and billings to Club members) until the new release schedule kicks in later this summer or fall. The Club billing process is also likely to change – and we may even call this program something other than “Stencil of the Month Club” – but those details have yet to be worked out. However, my partner will be releasing a more complete announcement about pricing changes in the coming week or two.

That all being said, Club members and all of my other very important customers, please hang with us through this brief gap in releases (which starts this month) as we make these exciting product and schedule changes. I am sure the new kits will be all you asked for – and more!

If you have any questions about your particular membership or Club billing in the interim, please contact service@confectioncouturestencils.com. And if you have any kit themes you’re dying to see, please let me know at sweetlife@juliausher.com so I can work them into the new design process that’s kicking off in a few weeks. Thank you in advance!
