This is it!

Hi Cheese Lovers

We are so sorry for the delay!

At the start of this month we were on target for shipping and then my house a.k.a "MakeCheese HQ" was robbed. I had two computer stolen and the upset this caused seemed unending for a while...

This it it now. All kits are heading out in batches every day this week. (They usually take 5-7 days in. North America)

I sincerely apologize. Shipping in March arriving in April is not what I set out to do, but I'm still excited that soon enough many of you will be beginning your cheese making adventures.

Kind regards

      Hello - I also have not received a kit yet. Please provide an update for us.


    2. Creator Grant on April 23, 2013

      I also haven't received a kit yet. Please let me know what to do.

    3. Creator Jed Bodger on April 19, 2013

      Just as an FYI, my kit has not yet arrived. If you need additional information from me, please let me know, I would be happy to provide. Cheers!

      Hi Ella,

      I'm moving this week, and I still haven't received my package. I know that there weren't tracking numbers on the single kits, but is there any way to know if it was shipped?


    5. Creator Jo Sheppard on April 16, 2013

      Not in a rush but just wanted you to know I have not yet received my order.

    6. Creator Ella on April 16, 2013

      For those of you still waiting we are going to check on the dates and any tracking numbers (single kits will not have tracking numbers due to the extra shipping cost).

      Not too worry, all kits will be replaced and resent if they have not arrived.

      Thanks for your patience.

    7. Creator Dave Reid on April 16, 2013

      Still waiting for my package, how much longer?? can I track it?

      I received my kickstarter kit (mozza and feta) today. What a wonderful surprise. I wish I had no plans this weekend, because my plan would be to have a cheese making party ;)

    9. Creator Laura Jeffrey on March 29, 2013

      I messaged you about a change in address but haven't heard anything back- did you get it?

    10. Creator Ella on March 28, 2013

      For longest storage possibilite we recommend you keep the cultures from the kits in your freezer, but they will come to little harm if they are out of the freezer a few days or weeks, much like coffee beans.

      Hope this helps

      Quick question, I will probably be out of town when my kit arrives. Can my wife just stick it in the freezer?


    12. Creator Liv on March 27, 2013

      Hey Ella!
      Im so sorry to hear about what happened. Dont worry about us. We are so thankful for everything that you do.
      To be honest, this is my only kickstarter which is closest to the actual shipping date. Thank you for that :)
      Keep up the good work!

      All the paths that lead to great accomplishments have there difficult parts at some point in the travel. But it's the ability to overcome theses difficult parts and the determination to move forward that turn a simple travel to a worthy accomplishment.

      Wishing severe lactose intolerance for thieves!!!

    15. Creator Paul Galburt on March 27, 2013

      Ella, as long as you were not hurt, all the rest is just stuff that is replaceable. We'll be thrilled with our kits when we get them. I know it's hard to dispel the feeling of vulnerability and having been invaded, even when you are not there when a burglary occurs. It takes some time - and maybe consider an alarm system.

    16. Creator Anna Phillips on March 27, 2013

      Chin up sweetheart! I m so excited about my cheesy goodness I can't wait... But I've waited this long what's a few more weeks! We are so proud of how far you have come... Don't let this speed bump get In Your way!

    17. Creator Joely Polokoff on March 27, 2013

      so sorry for the heist... I hope you recover fast... i have an old Dell you can put to use if you need it... just let me know! :-)

    18. Creator Ella on March 26, 2013

      Aw shucks! Thanks for being so forgiving!

      We have been feeling sick about this delay for two weeks. You Kickstarters mean a lot to us!

    19. Creator Viraj on March 26, 2013

      A MONTH LATE?!!!! Hahaa, seriously, don't sweat it. That is nothing to worry about it. I'm excited for my cheese though! Glad to see you're back up.

    20. Creator Zen on March 26, 2013

      So sorry about what happened. I would rather my cheese kits were stolen instead. Don't worry about the delivery schedule, it's hardly a delay by Kickstarter standards.
