      Hello! I havent received my bag and was wondering when it may be here.
      Thank you!

      @SueArteau Yes, your Indigo cheetah will be done next! :)
      @JenovaPooh You should be receiving it soon. The last shipment was our largest shipment yet, so it is taking longer to get all the bags out. You will receive an email confirmation when it's on it's way.
      @SandraOwen We would be happy to refund you, just send us an email at Kickstarter is a crowdfunding platform. It's actually meant to be there to get the money for production up front, and then when the product is put into production using the money spent from the people who backed it-- you can get it as a reward and that's exactly is what is happening in this case. We did our absolute best to predict when they would be finished, but there were some things in the manufacturing process that were out of our control. However, the one thing that we did differently with our Kickstarter vs. the majority of other campaigns, is we allowed people to get a full refund.
      @Elizabeth Monticue You should be good. Please also see the response to Sandra, on how Kickstarter works.
      @Joyce Dowd Obrien We are getting the bags out and then sending the swags to Canada.
      @Leanne Kotecki Thank you! Yes we do want everyone to get their bags soon! We are trying really hard because we know they will love them :)
      @Jackie Parnell Thanks for the kind words Jackie :) It really goes a long way and we totally appreciate it!
      @Alizabeth your package will be here soon. We messaged you back with details.
      @Michael R. Leger Since we had over 5,000 bags, about 10,000, with hundreds of different variations, we let you guys know that it would be longer than Christmas. If your bag came in the last shipment, which I think it did, it will be on its way to you soon and you should be receiving tracking shortly. This was our largest shipment so it is taking a bit longer to get everything out.

      Again, thank you everyone for backing our Kickstarter. Please be patient for a little longer as we work hard to get you all your bags. Don't worry - they are coming but these are some of our largest shipments so we are working as fast as humanly possible to get them out to you! Thanks for your continued support and we can't wait until everyone receives their bags! :)

      is there anyway to track our shipments? im in Canada and had hoped that it would have arrived by Christmas.

    9. O'Boogie on

      @Alizabeth, they are shipping Sage and other received colors right now. There are thousands of them, however, so give them a little time. It's all in progress! :-)

    10. Alizabeth on

      I'm very thankful for all the work y'all are putting into keeping us updated! Does this mean that all the real leather sage colors shipped? Cause I never got an email for my package.

      Hey Nichole! Thank you for the updates. Thank you for the fulfilment centre in Canada. Thank you for the Canadian website.
      I enjoyed the last campaign so much I knew this expandable plan would be a product I would love! Really enjoying the caramel ees that came a while ago. When the other bags come, it will be great too. I am looking forward to the next campaign XOXO💕🎽🇨🇦

    12. O'Boogie on

      No kidding, Leanne. I bet they can't wait until it is over.

    13. Leanne Kotecki on

      Thanks Nichole! Who would have thought the kickstarter would have taken off like it did! Yes we had to wait longer for out bags people, but what if there was a cut off amount and only a few of us were able to get these bags? Then there would be even more whining. They are doing their best to get them here ASAP. Maybe put yourself in their shoes. They probably want to get all the bags out more than you!

      We all know that you are acting insane because we can see it here. Get your money back and FIND SOMETHING ELSE TO DO WITH YOUR TIME. As Lisa said a few days ago, I really think you need to seek a therapist and medical interrvention. Something is very, very wrong with you. TAKE YOUR MONEY AND GO AWAY FOREVER.

      Nichole Macdonald, to follow up on your previous comment about refunding my credit card, here's the problem. We had a contract and now you want to break it for no legitimate reason except you are mad at me for requesting updates? Blaming me for your production problems is grossly unproffesional to say the least.
      As for a refund, the problem is my sashmania group members all want their bags. I have a plethora of emails from them (and other groups) complaining about the way this campaign went down.
      As other sashmania group leaders well know, it was no small feat combing our specific customized orders, collecting payment and fearfully submitting or pledge. Now you are asking me to go through the logistical nightmare in reverse? You want to refund my pledge so i can refund the individuals in our group? I am pretty sure they wont be happy with that.
      I backed you in good faith, you have the bags ready to ship. Please just fulfill our rewards as per our contractual agreement and we never have to do business with you again.

      Good to read this. I was starting to despair.... or wonder if someone had taken my bag out of my mailbox! If I'm reading this correctly, and there are no customs hold-ups, I should be looking for my black denim expandable around the 2nd week of April, right? : )

    20. O'Boogie on

      And they will give you one, Sandra.

      Maybe don’t back any more KS projects? It’s not like ordering an item on Amazon. That’s not how it works. That’s not how any of this works.

      Soooo excited! Denim leather coming soon :)
      Thanks for all the updates Nichole. Sorry we haven't always been patient. It's hard waiting for something so awesome, that you can't wait to get. lol Will be so worth it though!
      @ Sandy...we are all waiting for a bag. Mine is one of the specialty types, Your second one must be as well. (strip stitch denim leather)No delivery dates were promised. December was a tentative date based on a number of bags half the number that we ended up pledging for!
      Some Kickstarter projects wait years for production. Some never complete. We can count on Sash, even if it's taking some time. Quality takes time.

      I love my sash bags. The Kickstarter program was a neat idea or so I thought so. Last year I ordered 2 sash bags and I think delivery was to be on December 3. I did receive my black leather expandable but I am still waiting for my other one. I hope I receive it soon.

      @Barbi, did you read this post? The one you are commenting under? The type of bag doesn’t matter. The bags are manufactured in batches by color. Look at the updates. They tell you everything you need to know. There are 33 of them. All contain information about manufacturing.’

      If you read them all and still have questions, email They can’t answer questions here about people’s specific rewards.

      I have not seen anything about my bag - expandable fringed. I, too, never thought it would take so long..........

      I know I ordered a misty blue leather with fringe for myself but I don't remember which faux leather I picked! lol I have no clue as to color! Well since I haven't received either one, it must be in this last batch!! :)

      Cynthia, Jennifer, Heidi, Carla, Emma, Jen, Susan, Donna, Mary, Karin, Robin, Diane, Sena, Julie, JoAnne, Inga, O’Boogie, and Dawn… Thanks so much for all the support!!

    36. Nichole MacDonald 2-time creator on

      @Dawn, thanks so much for the feedback. Yay!!

      @Cheryl, I think the system marks them as filled when they process your shipment so that means it must be on its way. yay! If you didn't get tracking, email us.

      Marcia, if you picked out a leather black bag, it should have already shipped. The faux leather, about half have shipped so it depends on the style.

      Everyone, all of this info is in the updates and you can also email us at

    37. Nichole MacDonald 2-time creator on

      Eileen, we fulfilled our first Kickstarter over two years ago. I don't see you listed as a backer on that campaign. Also, when I click on your profile, it says this is the only campaign you backed. If you used a different name and didn't get your reward, you should have reached out, but we can still help you at if there's something you need.

    38. O'Boogie on

      Did you guys read the update you posted under? It is literally all there. She has posted 33 of these updates. I’ve never been involved with a KS with more updates. Please, please, please read the updates.

      Eileen, this is her second Kickstarter. What are you talking about?

      Nicole, you and the rest of the Sash team have worked miracles and I can’t wait to see what records we break on your next Kickstarter.... to re-quote Susie Lee “you had me at hello”
      High fives, hugs and major love & thanks from Canada xoxo

      @Daleesha, sure I can do that! It was the red denim that turned out pinkish, not the leather, FYI.

      @Wendy, I'm not sure what you mean. You are always welcome to email us and we can help you.

      Oh, I'm ready, I'm ready! I've received a couple of EE bags, but they're gifts for friends! I haven't play with them yet:) But I've been really distracted by serious health issues that I hadn't planned for... so I'm planning a package opening event. Wine will be located quite close.

    45. Wendy Weiner on

      That is so great, but when we do send a critique or an opinion or a...oh gee...look here....about the three new bags to feels like we are mostly just blown off.

      Dalesha Bowman on

      Yes! I can’t wait! So excited- I’m getting my first one in the mail today and have 6 of my 7 bags coming in this next shipment. Was hoping Elizabeth would arrive in time for my brother’s wedding in April because it matches my dress perfectly, but I see that probably won’t happen given the timeline.
      I have a question though about the color of the red and honey/calico. Will there be a chance to get an update and see a true to color picture of these before they start shipping? I remember from the live video with M in India that you mentioned the red turned out more pink (don’t remember if that was for the leather or denim) and the calico you had looked more like what we expected the honey to look like (based on the pics on the campaign page) and the honey was much lighter. Just wondering if we would have a chance to see a pic and decide before they ship whether we want to cancel if the color isn’t what we expected. Thanks for keeping us updated!

      Heidi Turner on

      Thank you for keeping us so well informed about where your campaign stands. These bags, that we could design ourselves, were rewards for backing your ‘extra’ idea. Kickstarter is for crowdsourcing an idea. You get rewards for helping to fund an idea. It is not the same as ordering direct from the Sash website. Not. The. Same.

      I sent an email for more info but all i got was a link to the update before this. I thought my bag would be shipped as I had ordered the black faux leather extra. Did anyone else order this type? I am so looking forward to getting my bag, but I don't see any more info. *sad face*
