Have you heard about Massdrop yet? I feel like I’ve started seeing the buzz more and more in the last month, esp in the sewing world. It’s a site for helping consumers get a lower price on desirable items by negotiating bulk pricing with the vendors. As more people opt into the purchase – or “drop” -the price goes down, but you are not officially charged until the “drop” ends. By clicking Join Now – you are committed to buy the product, no matter what drop point is reached. If you click the “Commit to Join” button, you will only purchase the item if the lowest price is met by the end of the drop. And you can opt out before the drop ends. You can read more about how it all works on the Massdrop FAQ’s page.
I was recently contacted by Massdrop to see if I would be interested in promoting their current drop, a bundle of 16 fat quarters from Heather Ross’s latest collection, Far Far Away from Windham fabrics. Um, yes! As part of this drop, this bundle is currently listed at 39.99 – which is a great deal already. As enough join the drop the bundle will drop to $35.99. This drop will end this Friday, Aug 29.
Post Edit UPDATE: It looks as though this bundle is sold out. But the giveaway is still going! And check out Massdrop’s current selection of sewing goods here.
If this concept intrigues you, check out some of Massdrop’s past crafting drops, including Aurifil Thread, Olfa rotary blades, fabric collections, etc. If you see something that interests you from past drops, click on the item and click on the request button. When enough requests are generated Massdrop will work on getting another similar drop. I think it’s some really cool – and useful stuff. And when you find a deal you really want, tell your friends so that price will drop! To keep up with the latest drops you can follow them on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
Today Massdrop is also offering to give away one of these bundles to you! (We have had a lot of giveaways recently – I’m sorry if you’re sick of them -people just keep wanting to share cool stuff with you all!) Just leave a comment and if you want to, share something that you would like to see Massdrop carry for sewists.
I’ll choose and announce the winner on the morning of Aug 28th so that there’s still time to snap up a bundle before the drop ends! GIVEAWAY CLOSED.
