How long is the SAL?

The SAL will last 8 weeks!

What sizes do the mystery quilts come in?

The mystery quilt will be offered in one size - throw size.

How do I know what the quilt will look like?

You don't know! That's the fun behind the mystery SAL! You won't know the pattern design until the end of the SAL!

For Toadster Tier members only - You will have the option to look at the design on the quilt as early as Week 1! This will allow you to choose fabrics with the design in mind.

How do I pick fabrics for a quilt I haven't seen before?

The first week of the SAL is all about pciking fabrics! We have created a worksheet detailing the best way to go about choosing your fabrics for the mystery quilt.

For Toadlet and Toadster Tier members only - you will have access to attend the live Week 1 Zoom Circle meeting where we will discuss fabric choices!

For Toadster Tier members only - you will have access to premium Toad Circle Discord channels for personalized help with your fabrics!

How will I receive the pattern?

The pattern will be broken up into sections. A new section will be made available to you in your Toad Circle portal and in your weekly newsletter. Both places will allow you to download the PDF section directly onto your computer or device.

Will the Mystery Quilt pattern we available to purchase later?

Unfortunately at the moment, the pattern will only be available to the participants and members of the Toad Circle MQSAL!

Toadsters members only will have access to previous Toad Circle patterns.

What if I fall behind in sewing?

You will be able to download the pattern section PDF from your Toad Circle portals or from your weekly newsletters each week once it's released!

What book are we reading?

We will all vote on the book at the beginning of the SAL!

What if I fall behind in reading?

The Book Club novel is discussed at the end of the 8 week SAL, you've got some time to catch up! The Toad Circle Discord server also has separate channels for sections/chapters of the book to prevent any spoilers!

Where can I find the Toad Circle community?

On your Toad Circle portal page, there is a button to join the Toad Circle Discord server. This is where members will be chatting, asking questions, and hanging out!

Do I have to join Discord to access the community?

Yes. This is where the members will participate in the community aspect of Toad Circle. You do not have to join Discord to receive the SAL pattern, as the pattern will be delivered to your Toad Circle portal and in your weekly newsletters.

Zoom Sew-ins

Zoom sew-ins are bi-weekly and are often on Thursdays at 5 p.m. PST. (unless there is a holiday or something else that conflicts)

How much does it cost?

Tadpole Tier: This is a SAL only (no membership/community access) for a one-time payment of $16.

Toadlet Tier: $8/month OR $22/3 months OR $80/year

Toadster Tier: $12/month OR $30/3 months OR $108/year

Where do I log in to my portal?

You will log in right here in this website using the account icon at the top right.

If I am part of the Toadlet or Toadster membership, do I need to buy the SAL separately?

Nope! The mystery pattern and SAL are things that are included in the perks of the Toadlet and Toadster memberships!

can I pause my my membership if I can't participate in a sal?

While there is no official way of pausing your membership - you can cancel your membership and sign-up for the Lurker Tier if you want to remain in the Discord Community, and then reinstate your membership in time for the next SAL!

Can I cancel if I don't want to join the next SAL?

Absolutely! You can do so in your Membership portal.

Note: if you cancel in the middle of your 3 month or annual membership, you will not receive a refund and will continue to have access to Toad Circle until the end of your billing cycle.

Can I get a refund for my membership if I cancel or change my tier early?

Unfortunately, there are no refunds. You will continue to have access to Toad Circle until the end of your billing cycle if you cancel early. You will be charged immediately for any changes to your billing cycle or upgrade in tier level.


Yes! A gift card can be used for the initial payment and sign-up of Toad Circle. A credit card will be entered at checkout for all recurring payments. Any remaining balance on the gift card will not be applied to future payments.

Example: A gift card containing $50 was used to sign up for the $30 quarterly Toadster tier membership. The gift card will be used for the first payment. The remaining $20 will not be used and applied to the next scheduled $30 payment; this $20 will remain available on the gift card.
