I have been persuaded that clubs are really a good idea, I have to be honest that I have in the past struggled with the complicated admin of the clubs as previously they allowed people to sign up at different times , I have with Mr Wool and Jo decided on a new way of doing them that will enable me to easily ensure that they are sent out on time each month and with Jo doing all the admin you can rest assured that this will happen

We came up with the idea of a 6 month project club, small projects, one a month, with different yarn each time including some VERY VERY special yarn, along with a pattern each month for the project with that yarn. It would go on sale with limited places from mid Nov, and it would start on the 15th of Feb (I know that seems like a bit of a gap, but the entire club would have to be made in advance to make it run smoothly. It would cost around 100 pounds for the entire club. I would do NONE of the administration, infact I want nothing to do with it, I would just be providing the designs and the yarn, and the rest is up to Jo.

What do you reckon?????


  1. Sounds good to me, especially as it should be no stress for you :>)

  2. I must admit I've found the club very frustrating this year. I love the wool, I love the colours, however as you say, the dates are a bit .... interesting!
    I doubt I'd want a club to do small projects, but if there was a 6 month sock club going I'd be up for it.

  3. Good idea, but how about 3 months - perhaps based on seasons? It would be less of a long term commitment for you, and less outlay for us!

  4. Hi Jen, its important that you spend your time on things you love and are good at and this sound great from that point of view. I think I'd like to be clearer what the projects are. I'd be happy with socks, hats, gloves but not tiny scarves or bags. Also £100 in one go is a bit much - 3 or 6 months would be easier.
    Love, M

  5. Why not a one year sock club, with 6 shipments, sign up from November to New Year. (Perfect Christmas present:-))

  6. I love the idea of this. There are so many sock clubs around, this would make a welcome change. One place gone for sure :)
