Final Shipment to Backers - SUCCESS!

Posted by Maurice Ribble (Creator)

The final shipment of rewards to our kickstarter backers are going out tomorrow.  All our backers should now either have received their EEW or gotten an email with shipping information.  If you haven't please contact us and we'll help you figure out what is happening.

This means we have had a successful Kickstarter campaign!  It certainly hasn't been a perfectly smooth road.  It's been a huge amount more work doing a Kickstarter like this than we had anticipated, but it was totally worth it.  Overall we've been ecstatic that the vast majority of the feedback has been so positive.  We also have appreciated the constructive feedback people have given on what they'd like to see improved in the future.  Our backers are awesome!

As a way of showing our backers that we appreciate their support we will be giving them a one time use 20% discount to our store.  One of the reasons we're doing is because many people said they wanted us to ship extra bobbins with their order and we never got around to setting up that option.  We decided to go with just shipping just the kickstarter rewards to help get all those sent out more quickly.  However, now to help offset the shipping cost of ordering extra items we wanted to give you a discount.  We will post this discount code as a private update when our store is actually stocked with items.  It's looking like sometime in October is when we'll have the first batch of items for sale in our store so expect the private update sometime around then.  You can sign up for email notifications in the store so you'll know when they are back in stock.  Our store only allows you to buy items that are in stock and we don't do back orders.  The store will have a items like the EEW, extra belts, bobbins, lazy kate, a power supply for your car, and more.  Also if you aren't a kickstarter backer please don't ask for this discount, it's only for our backers.

Here's an image of the car adapter we're using with the EEW.

Thanks again to all our backers!

      Hi Richard and Eva, you both had valid issues with my shipping. I've contacted you both privately and it should be settled now.

      I'm so happy for you guys! You've created an awesome product that will not only benefit seasoned spinners, but get those of us who are novices an affordable and simple wheel to get our passion started on the right foot!

      I could see this even being a fantastic humanitarian gift to impoverished regions that produce their own textiles! The opportunities for your wonderful business is limitless!!

      Thanks for bringing this idea to life and I cannot say enough about how much I love my EEW!!!

      Hi all, my shipping email came from Dreaming Robots Store not Kickstarter so may be worth checking for that in your inbox? Looking forward to receiving mine!

      I have not received my Eel nor have I received shipping instructions. Please advise.

      Late backer but have received neither (EEW or email with shipping information). Survey with shipping info submitted 28 July. Is there another contact other than comments?

      This is very generous, Maurice. I can't wait to get more bobbins. They fill up awfully fast.

      Actually, it's looking like the emails about shipping might not have gone out yet. Please wait a day or so before contacting me.
