MOD 2016 Fabric and Apparel Pre-Orders Are Now Open

As we did last year, we have once again arranged with some of our amazing sponsors to offer you the option to shop before the retreat and have your orders delivered to you at MOD.  An e-mail with all the information about how to place an order has been sent to all MOD attendees - please check your e-mail, including spam folders.  Contact the organizers if you did not receive the e-mail.

Here's how it works:

  1. You go online to the great shops listed and fill your shopping cart as you normally would. (Make sure to order before each shop's cut-off date.)
  2. You enter the discount code listed for the shop (see e-mail sent to attendees).
  3. You make any note on the order that is instructed by the shop.
  4. You list the hotel address as the shipping address.
  5. Either print your order confirmation or have the email available on your phone.
  6. You pick it up at MOD!

What are the benefits of shopping like this?

  • Well, first, you get a discount at awesome shops.  Obviously a good thing.
  • You also don't have to pay any shipping, so if you want a few things from each shop, you're good to go.
  • You get the fabric at MOD for any project you'll be working on there.
  • You can get some awesome new quilty apparel to show off during the retreat.
  • And, finally, you support our sponsors who help make the event possible.

Thanks to the following sponsors for offering pre-orders:

We don't have all of this year's sponsors firmed up yet but it's shaping up to be another fantastic event. We encourage our attendees to be sure to give a shout out with handles and hashtags whenever you post about one of these businesses, and while you're at it, tag #midatlanticmod too if it applies!
