Yarn clubs are a type of themed subscription. They typically contain a skein of yarn, plus small extras such as relevant crafty bits (stitch markers, hooks), soaps, buttons, edible items, jewellery. These are just examples and you are not guaranteed to get the above listed items.
These are done on a pre-order basis, usually via PayPal invoicing. And they can be monthly, quarterly, or seasonal, depending on which club you choose.
Each yarn club is a surprise, you do not get to see the item before you buy it.
To see some examples of my previous clubs, you can check out my blog.
Current Yarn Clubs
One Skein Wonder:
One Skein Wonder (or OSW), is a club I did a few years ago. Each person gets something different, unlike my Lolli Club, where everyone gets the same colourway.
This is replacing my Lurid Minis club, but there is a minis option!
You will have the chance to customise your club and tell me what you like and what you dislike. To give you an idea of what to tell me: You favourite colours, speckles, variegated, solid colours, brights, darks, jewel tones, you get the idea.
Please see the options on the form for pricing. Each price includes postage, the "extra skein" option includes a postage adjustment.
I have added a DK and a sock option, as these are the bases I carry as standard. But there is also an "other" option, if you want something else. If you don't choose an option, I will likely contact you to find out, or you will just get what you get.
I am happy to post outside the UK, but please be aware that the price will be slightly higher than stated due to increased postage.
Lolli Club started in 2018. It is a way for me to use ideas from various different themes, with three themes rotated month by month (2018 was Sciences, Pop Culture and Art). In 2019, I will be continuing with Science theme, but the other two themes have been changed. The new themes will be Kawaii and Heroes.
Due to a bad start to the year, the new Lolli Club schedule is as follows:
Heroes: This theme will involve some of my heroes which span different media and genres. Artists, musicians, political icons, etc. I will occasionally throw this out to you lot for a vote!
Previous themes were "David Bowie" and "June/Offred/Handmaids Tale"
Hero months are January, June, September .
Kawaii: The success of my kawaii club from Pop Culture last year has spurred me on to do an entire theme. Based on different kawaii characters and well known symbols.
Previous themes were "Easter/Eggs/Gudetama" and "Summer"
Kawaii months are April, July, October.
Sciences: Continuing for a third year! I have rolled science over so many times and people still keep loving it. Previous themes have been bubbles, rocks & minerals, and fire rainbows.
Science months are May, August, November.
No Lolli club in December, as this will be Year In Review club.
I usually send out sock weight merino/nylon as standard, so if you would prefer a different base, please leave a comment at sign up point.
I do send overseas, please make sure that you let me know where you live if you are from outside the UK. Overseas shipping will incur extra charges. You can contact me to discuss shipping prices.
If you just want to sign up for one month, to see if you like it, that is absolutely fine. There is no contract or obligation to carry on.
This club is currently taking a limited amount of sign ups!
To sign up, please see my Yarn Club Sign Up page.
These are one off clubs which are themed around a certain event or holiday. At Christmas, I have a club called Year In Review. Which looks back on the year's events, film, TV, politics, etc. Whilst this is an alternative to the usual Christmas box, they usually contain at least one Christmas item and are sent out in time for Christmas.
I usually also create a Valentines, Mother's Day and Halloween club. Watch my Facebook for those announcements.
