Final details of the 2011 club, which opens for sign ups tonight at 9pm:
We’re calling our 2011 Posh club the Random Acts Of Poshness Club, and this is how it’s going to work:
It will be a bi-monthly club, as before, and we will choose the bases and colourways randomly for you throughout the year. Tony tends to dye in batches of fives, so there will be more that one skein of your particular yarn/colourway out there, making swaps possible if you wanted more of that one, but the colourways will feel more exclusive than the current club system, where everyone gets the same theme.
You will be able to choose between three types of membership for the year: light weight (a mix of lace weight (but not cobweb) and sock weight), medium weight (a mix of every yarn weight, from lace to aran), or heavy weight (a mix of sock weight, dk weight, and aran weight). You will not be able to opt out of certain colours (but as with the Cashmere Club, swapping and trading will be going on on the Posh Knitters Ravelry group, so if you get a colour that just isnt you, there’ll be plenty of people out there who will want it!). The yarn will be selected from our range of £12-13 priced yarns, Elinor, Jeannie, Daisy, Sylvia, Martha, and so on. You will get 1 skein per shipment, so a total of 6 skeins throughout the year.
Spots will be limited in number. I will email members after the sale to ask what group you want to select. The cost of membership for the year will be £85 for UK members, and £90 for International members. This cost includes P&P. As well as being part of a fun club, this also works out at a slight saving on our normal prices! You will need to select the correct postage for your membership type when you go through Checkout – the UK members will pay £5 postage, and the International members will pay £10 postage, this is on top of the £80 membership fee, so it works out a total as above. I hope that makes sense!
