More important info on: 

Desiree's ITH Mug Rug Club 

This machine embroidery and applique club that features Desiree's popular designs as Mug Rugs, hot pads, coasters, trivets etc delivered to your inbox as well as access to our Classroom where all the files, videos etc can be accessed at any time. Join our wonderful community and have fun while learning some new techniques.

There is an early bird sign-up price until Dec 1, 2022. After Dec 1, 2021 you can still join the fun at the regular price for all 12 months of designs for the calendar year 2023, Dec 21- Nov 23, Your first design will arrive on Dec 1, 2022 but late sign ups will receive all 2023 past designs.

Hoop Sizes!!!

Starting 2020, we began offering two sizes, a 6"x10" (160mm x 260mm) and an 8"x12" (200mmx300mm) hoop size due to popular demand. To avoid compromising the design when using the 6" x 10" hoop the borders and backing fabric will not be sewn in the hoop but must be sewn on manually.  Your finished product will still look like the one on display in the Newsletter.  Every effort will be made to retain the design and overall look of the Mug Rug!

We will try to include the design as a stand alone image so you will be able to add it to other projects for your gift giving. 

Many designs will also have a 5"x7" (130mm x 180mm) bonus design which can be stitched as a small ITH mug Rug projects. These projects are great for not only mug rugs but candle mats, hot pads,patches and trivets. These are all new designs for 2023.

**For 2023 October Design we will offer an alternate option for those not interested in Halloween designs.

It will also contain any bonus material. Please be sure you have the latest version of Adobe Reader. Download link will remain active on my website but you will only have the opportunity to download it 3 times. Do not share these files. Our analytic software tells us when you have received and downloaded the designs. You will download the files to your computer and you should create a backup of all stored designs. You might want to make a folder just for your mug rug club designs.

3. We strongly suggest that you transfer the files directly from your computer to your machine via a USB stick. Using 3rd party software programs to transfer or alter files may result in corruption of those files. We are happy to help if you have a problem, but this is a simple process and if you have problems or questions you may also need to contact your machine dealer. We do not guarantee any design that has been altered using a 3rd party software.

4. You must have a large hoop to be able to stitch and quilt some of these mug rug designs in the hoop. The mug rugs for 2021 will come in either a square at 8"x 8" (7.75"x7.75"), 6"x 10" (6.3"x10.24") or a 8"x 12" (7.87"x 11.81") size as well as a 5"x7", the actual layout will differ due to the sizes. *See exact hoop measurements above.

6. We do not give refunds for digital products. Our customers agree that we have some of the best digitizing in the industry and our customer service is excellent. If there is a problem with a file we are happy to make things right, our goal is for you to be thrilled with your designs each month. I know you are going to love these designs and this club. I hope you will encourage your embroidery friends to join us.
