I've talked to a lot of people about what they would like in a club and have built in lots of different options for you all. I am super super excited about this club! I hope you like it. :) Here are the details....
The club will have four installments sent January, April, July and October 15th. There is also a mini club with two shipments: January and July 15th. What is included? Each shipment includes a new elements shawl/scarf pin and lace shawl pattern with a theme having to do with the time of year! (no religious or holiday themes) You have the choice of metals for the pins, and you also have the option of adding 1,200 yards of hand-dyed lace weight yarn from Royale Hare to the mix! My favorite is an option with my picks for metal and yarn! Patterns will be in pdf format. Your package will arrive with log-in information so that you can retrieve your pattern at your leisure. And I am really sensitive to economic woes, so the club prices include a discount!
The pins, patterns and yarns you receive will be brand new designs and yarn colors. I will be releasing the pin and pattern to the public about three months after you receive it, but there will be no kit released for at least a year (if at all). For those of you who would like to join me, there will be a knit-along for the patterns in my Ravelry group. Mostly, the patterns will be written by me - designer of Muir, Ice Queen, Waves of Grain, Bluebird and others - but there may be a guest or two in the mix, as well! Regular shipping to the US or Canada is included in the club price. Shipping to other countries will be extra, and different shipping options are now listed on the club page!
Sign-ups are open through December 15th, 2009. Sign up before November 1st and receive some complimentary holiday cheer!
