The Murder Mystery Quiltis a monthly subscription club that reads along together and stitches up a quilt to find clues and solve the murder mystery contained in the story. This is a mystery quilt in the traditional sense–you sew a block each month and the overall design of the quilt isn’t revealed until all the blocks are sewn–but it’s also a MYSTERY quilt: each month, along with the block pattern and design, you receive a chapter of a mystery story. Each chapter reveals clues as the plot unfolds, and it’s your job to seek out whodunit!
In addition to the chapters holding clues, as any mystery story does, the BLOCKS you’re sewing have hidden clues, as well. So each block you sew gets you closer to learning the identity of the murderer. Every block you sew and share with us through Instagram or our private Facebook group also earns you an additional clue via email, so you’re rewarded every month for completing the block and staying on track to finish the quilt! The skills included in each block pattern are suitable for anyone from adventurous beginner to seasoned quilter–the instructions are clearly detailed to make it possible for anyone to follow along and learn as they sew, but the designs are interesting enough to keep anyone engaged. Plus! Clues!!
Guild Subscriptions are designed for local-area quilt guilds with members who would all like to participate in the Murder Mystery Quilt as a group. Up to ten (10) members from a guild can register with a single Guild Subscription; additional members beyond the first ten can be added to a group at any time at the same discounted rate.
Individual members who join under a Guild Subscription will EACH have their own login and account on the Murder Mystery Quilt website, which will give them full access to all the chapters, block patterns, downloads, community forum, and the private Facebook page. All at a 25% discount over registering individually!
Each guild member who participates in your Guild Subscription will have FULL access to the Murder Mystery Quilt content via the website. They will be able to print their own copies of the pattern and mystery chapter. The Group Leader (the representative from your Guild who handles the initial registration) will have the option to print additional copies or to offer printing as a service via the guild, if desired. Individual members, along with shop owners, have full access to the private Facebook group and all bonus clues.
To register your guild or group, simply complete the subscription agreement by clicking the red button above that reads, "Register Your Group." One member will act as Group Leader, and be responsible for handling payment. The subscription fee is three installments of $247.50, one payment each month for three months. It is the Group Leader's task to collect funds from individual members and ensure that they are available.
Once the initial registration is submitted, Group Leaders can collect the email addresses of each group member. This list will be sent to Deborah at the Murder Mystery Quilt, and an individual account is created for every member. Members can then login to their account and manage all the content and information themselves.
The Group Leader is responsible for collecting funds from individual members, and then relaying member email addresses to the Murder Mystery Quilt. That's it! No shipments to track, no patterns to distribute, and no complicated paperwork to fill out. Group Leaders count as one of the ten memberships for the group, and will have their own individual account on the Murder Mystery Quilt website so they can participate fully and join the fun!
