Here are answers to some frequently asked questions about the PopLush Embroidery Club. If you don't find an answer to your questions don't hesitate to contact us.
A digital membership costs $10 a month and a physical membership costs $18.50 a month.
Shipping is included in the price! Huzzah!
This depends on which membership you pick. Digital club members get a PDF email containing the stitch guide and transfer pattern. Greatest Hits, regular monthly club members, and floral club members receive pre-printed fabric, embroidery floss, and a stitch guide.
Absolutely! Every pattern I design can easily be stitched with the four basic stitches: running stitch, back stitch, split stitch, and satin stitch. However, I also list any next-level-up stitches that you can use, like stem stitch, chain stitch, and French knots.
Of course! You can join any membership as an international customer. You will be charged $10 in shipping every month to cover the rising cost of international shipping. However, if you'd like to avoid all shipping costs, the digital membership is the club for you!
I ship out all club patterns the 1st week of the month. The cut-off date to join the club and get the next month's design is the last day of the month. If you join after that, you will receive your first month's design in 1 month. For example, if you join on January 1st, you will receive your first club pattern in February. If you join on January 31st, you will also receive your first club pattern in February. But if you join February 1st, you will have to wait until March.
I ship out the club envelopes the first week of each month. You'll receive an email with the tracking information when it leaves my studio.
Your credit card will be charged every month on the 20th. It will appear on your statements as PopLush Embroidery. When you purchase the club membership, you are paying for your first month. All subsequent months are charged on the 20th.
Yep, all the designs for the club are new. Really popular designs might come to the shop afterwards though.
I try my best to create designs you'll love. However, I can't make everyone happy every time. There is no trading/swapping of designs, but you do have the option to skip a month. Or, if you like, you can give it to a friend as a present.
Not to worry. I sell supplies in my shop so you can stock up on anything you're missing. Find the supply section HERE.

Ready to get started? The first step is to print out your pattern.
To print on 8.5” x 11” paper, make sure you have your printer set to print at ‘Actual Size’ or set the scale to 100%. This will ensure your pattern stays the right size.
To print on wash-away stabilizer (Solvy), read the directions on your wash-away stabilizer first to see how to insert it into your printer. Then follow their instructions but make sure you are still setting your printer to print at ‘Actual Size’ or set the scale to 100%.
To trace the pattern, print it out and tape it to a sunny window. Tape your fabric on top of it and trace the pattern using a water-soluble marker or a chalk-based marking pencil.
To transfer the pattern using a wash-away stabilizer, print it out following the directions on your wash-away stabilizer packaging. Then peel off the backing paper and stick your pattern to your fabric.
Once you are finished stitching, place the embroidered fabric as flat as possible in a sink or bowl of cool water. Leave the fabric submerged for a few minutes until the wash-away stabilizer dissolves. You may need to hold the fabric under a running tap to remove everything. Shake off the excess water without scrunching the fabric.
Then lay the fabric flat on a towel and wrap the edges over the embroidery, pressing gently to absorb more water. Let it lay flat in the towel for a few minutes and then take it out to finish drying naturally.
