Terms:
Subscribing to this club means that you agree to monthly payments withdrawn from your Pay Pal for the duration of the club, unless you have paid in full or have made other arrangements for payment. You must ensure that your mailing address in PayPal is correct.  If you move at any point between June 1, 2012 and April 15, 2013, please inform us of your address change as soon as possible both by changing your address in PayPal and by emailing us with your new address.  We must have your new address at least 10 days prior to a Club shipment to ensure it is sent to the correct address. If a payment fails, we will make a reasonable attempt to contact you by email (at least two times). If payment can not be resolved at that point, we will cancel your participation in the club and no refund will be made for partial club shipments. (for example, if you are paid up for the June shipment, but not for August, we will ship the June package but hold the August package until full payment is received). If you discover an issue with your Pay Pal account, please contact us and we will work with you to resolve your account with us. You assume responsibility for packages delivered to the wrong address, if your address is incorrect in PayPal, if you have sent us the wrong address by email or if you have not given us sufficient notice (minimum 10 days prior to a Club shipment date) to change your address in our system.

FAQ

What is this?
A yarn club with patterns and artisan swag. Each package will contain 1 skein of Indigodragonfly yarn, a pattern for that yarn and swag (usually knitting related and always handmade by artisans).  In at least 1 case, the swag will part of the project intended for that month’s yarn.

How many packages/how long is the commitment?
Packages will arrive every 2 months, so you’ll receive 6 packages if you sign up for the 1 year club, and 3 packages if you sign up for the 6 month club.  You can opt to pay monthly, or pay for the whole club at once.

When do payments start?
The Club will be open for subscriptions starting on February 14, 2012 and will be open until April 14, 2012 (or when we’ve reached our full capacity) You can subscribe through Paypal right here on my blog.

When do shipments start?

June 15 will be the first shipment. Shipments will follow every second month on the 15th of the month until April 2013 for 1 year club members, or October 2012 for 6 month club members.

Why start sign ups so early?

This gives us time to plan and make sure our artisans have enough time to make swag for us, and that our suppliers have enough time to get us the quantities of yarn we need for you.  Also, Kim hates Valentine’s Day and this is a way to make sure something fun happens on this day every year.  Don’t worry, we have plenty of fun planned while you wait.

Who are the designers?
It’s a surprise!  All designers have been chosen because we love their designs.  We know you will too.  This year’s crop of designers are all new, but if you want a peek at past designers, here are some of them… Amy DuncanStephannie RoyKate Atherley and GlennaC.

Will you ship to Canada?

Yes! I live here, so there will definitely be shipping to Canada. In fact, the prices I’ve quoted you for the Club include shipping.

Is this a sock club? Are non-sock knitters welcome?
First of all, EVERYONE is welcome. The only requirement is that you have a sense of humour and are not easily offended. There will be a variety of projects throughout this Club. I like to knit different things and like variety…so that’s what you’re getting.
