The 2014 Snapshots from Maine Yarn Club is coming to a close, and I’d like to issue a HUGE thank you to all the club members who made this such a fun and exciting year. It was so nice to be able to share my Maine with you! I can’t wait to see all the projects as they appear on Ravelry and other Social media.
Of course, since this year’s club is almost over, it means that an announcement needs to be made about the 2015 club. All the pertinent information is below. If you have any questions please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Feel free to leave a comment below if you are excited!
Theme: Color Study. Each month’s colorway will have a dominant color, but will have some variations throughout – tonals, semisolids, complementary color(s), a pop of contrast, etc. The colors (in no particular order) are: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, pink, brown, black/gray/white, turquoise/teal, salmon/coral, and one color of your choice that will be overwashed with black. As there are a variety of shades in each color, an element of surprise will still be present. For example: will orange be neon? Pumpkin? Peach? All of the above? It’ll be a mystery until your package arrives.
Each month I’ll post in the Rav group looking for color inspiration photos, paintings, etc. Post as many as you like and if your image gets selected, you’ll get a $10 discount code good for anything in the shop. Dyeing from images is one of my favorite things to do, and I can’t wait to see how y’all interpret each color.
Product Choices: Lace Yarn, Sock Yarn, Worsted Yarn, Fiber. A variety of bases and fiber contents will be sent to you, although they will repeat after a number of months.

Amounts: You can purchase club memberships in single or double dose sizes.
How to sign up: Sign ups are a two-part process. First step: go here and fill out this form (go here if you’re international). This secures your spot and gives me the information I need when it’s time to ship packages. Second step: On January 1st, you will be emailed a link to set up a PayPal subscription. That’s when you actually pay for the subscription (which you can either do all at once or monthly). You won’t be billed until you fill out the subscription form, so don’t forget that step! Please make sure that you check your spam folders if you don’t receive the email. Payment is due by Jan 7th.
You will be charged the same day every month (or just the once if you select the lump-sum option), which will be between the 1st and 7th of the month. Your yarn/fiber will ship by the last day of that same month. It will mean that the first month, you will make two payments before you receive the first shipment. That will only happen once and will even out at the end of the year, when you get two shipments after your last payment is done.
