January 14, 2008
Hi there! I had a whirlwind weekend in California at the TNNA Market. (Wait until you hear about all the fun things I have on order for us! But more on that in Wednesday’s post.) Right now, I know you are anxious to hear about the 2008 Sock Club so that you can start signing up.
We have gone to an every other month system (so now you’ll get 5 packages from us this year, instead of 4). Thanks to all of you who asked us to do our mailings more often. This year’s club will focus on some wonderful semi-solid variations because we have some dynamite pattern designers who are looking forward to coming up with interesting patterns for you! We will have patterns by: Wendy Johnson, Cookie A, Debbie O’Neil, Monica Jines, and Terry Ross. I won’t give you all of the yarn dyers, but they do include Wollmeise and sKNITches – so that’s a little tease for you! The cost is the same as last year – $33 per package, plus shipping. Your package will include the limited-edition yarn, the pattern done especially for us, and any other fun little thing we can find to include in there for you. (You know we have fun with those little extras!) We send you an invoice a couple of weeks before each shipment, so this is a “pay as you go”, but you are committing to the whole year of 5 shipments when you sign up. If you’re interested in signing up, we’re taking names today and tomorrow, and if we go over out limit, we’ll do a quick lottery drawing to fill in the spots. If you’re interested, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll email you back on Wednesday or Thursday to let you know!
The other thing going on this week – a new Sneak Up! In this one you’ll find Wollmeise Sock yarn, Sheepaints, more Fiesta Boomerang, Alpaca With a Twist Fino (lace), Rio de la Plata (those are the socks in the photo I included – aren’t they awesome? Three ply sock yarn, different colors in each ply. Can you see it in the closeup?), Schaefer Heather, Tempted Roving, Prism Kid Slique (oh my it’s cool), Colinette Jitterbug, Dream in Color and Sakina Needles BFL Roving. More fun stuff for you – yay!
Ok – I’m off to try and address my email in-box (always the drawback of leaving town). I will check back in with you all on Wednesday with reports from TNNA! What did you all do while I was gone?
