    An idea

    Dutch,

    It's no surprise we love all your products and doodads. What I don't like is keeping track of all the things you make to figure out what I want, place an order only to find out you made something else really cool that I now need. Let's face it, the items you tend to make are small and numerous. Not like quilts. I'm only guessing here, but given the time you spend in R&D, marketing and order processing, there not much margin left when a customer buy a few items per order.

    I suggest you consider starting The Dutch Club. Members pay a fee per year you come up with the amount and we get any item you make (within reason) automatically.

    I for one would sign up for that in a heartbeat. I'm sure others would too. Could even out your cash flow and help fund cap ex.

    Just a thought

    I think you guys are talking about "Forever Dutch" - which according to the man himself - is already a thing.

    Rook is right, I have the The Forever Dutch, for those who already have everything , but just want to make sure they will have everything tomorrow.

    I wouldn't know how to work that. I don't know when any of this will end and i never thought I would be where I am at. I always said vending has taken away from colaboration and inovation. I never wanted to part with anything I made. I'd like to do some kind of discount and I try to give back as much as possible. However if you subscribe to my YouTube channel you do get an early heads up. If I can hook nice people up even before something gets released I do once I feel it is safe.

    FYI-There is one person who has the "Forever Dutch" and I owe him gear so maybe it isn't such a good club.

    So the You Tube is an EDWS - Early Dutch Warning System.- This is a test. A test of the EDWS. This is only a test.
    I like refried beans. That's why I wanna try fried beans, because maybe they're just as good and we're just wasting time. You don't have to fry them again after all.

    yeah to all the above because I am waiting for my quilt hooks as I am currently using potato chip clips to keep my UQ from sliding....

    Dutch - I had to stop typing that twice due to uncontrollable LOL'ing.
