Are you ready for three more installments? I know I am!
Can you believe it's almost been a full year already since we started the Rockin' Whorl Club. I can't!
Seems like just yesterday when I was standing in the barn lamenting over how I was never going to have time for a spinning club and then just deciding, "What the hell? I am just doing this now!" And we turned the wheel, which seems to have spun out pretty well so far!
As most of you already know, I am a spinner at heart. I learned to spin before I learned to knit and after a brief love/hate thing with my wheel, was at home! I learned to dye (second fiber love) because of spinning! I knew I was a goner the first time I sat at a wheel, put my foot on the treadle, pushed down and watched that wheel go around. You know the feeling, right? The feel, the sound, the smell... at once, I felt at home and connected to my people. I love making yarn. I love the feel of the fiber slipping through my fingers and the control I have over it. I'm constantly mesmerized by the shifting colors as all those fiber are twisted into a single thread. I love building a yarn based on a project, gathering all the pieces needed, then taking all the twists and turns until I have the yarn I dreamed. Making yarn is my happy place!
I really like offering each club shipment separately and then also, as a three kit package so we are continuing with this approach. I like it, because it gives me a whole bunch of freedom in planning and pricing each kit, and it gives you choices. We like choices! You can join me for the all three fiber adventures and buy the three package deal or you can just choose to purchase one or two of the kits individually.
These next three shipments will be sent in: August, October and December.
In each shipment you'll receive between 4 to 8 ounces of that month’s fiber offering. Sometimes it will be one fiber type and sometimes more than one. It all depends on what we are up to. You will receive notes from me on the fiber type (composition) and why it was chosen, the whys of the dye choice, and ideas for how to spin it for different types of yarn and to get a yarn that will work with a few applicable projects. You will also get pattern suggestions with links and discounts to those patterns.
Each club package will only be available to you. You can order more of the kit fiber, or other fibers and yarns we offer, in that colorway whenever you wish. We will not be offering these specific spinning kits to the general public at anytime.
Just like Sock Club, there are limited openings. Actually, because it takes fiber so long to dry and space for that is at a premium, we are more limited in available spots for this club. So if you purchase one month and decide later you would like the whole three month option there is a chance we could be out of spaces.
NO DISCOUNTS OR COUPONS APPLY TO ROCKIN' WHORL CLUB PURCHASES.
