TFA's Year in Colour Club 2014
Patterns Only option: New for 2014 I am offering a "patterns only" option alongside the full yarn + patterns memberships. This option is not yet available for pre-orders but as soon as it is you'll find it here.
This year will mark the fourth installment of the TFA Year In Colour Club; a custom colourway, single skein yarn club for 2014!
Every other month (January, March, May, July, September and November) members only will receive a custom-dyed skein of yarn with an exclusive pattern designed by either yours truly (Tanis Lavallée) or my partner in crime, Julie Crawford.
Just like in 2013 the Club will feature a wide variety of yarn weights and fiber contents. Throughout the year I will be featuring an aran weight yarn, a luxurious new dk weight yarn, a lace weight yarn, and 3 different fingering weight yarns.
For 2014 I have set up a very specific dye plan. Each consecutive club month you will receive a new colour of the rainbow. I will be going through the spectrum in order: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet. But wait... that's seven colours! I've got something special up my sleeve to make this work. They won't be litteral translations of the primary rainbow colours, they will be my interpretation. A very colourful Year In Colour indeed!
The patterns will all be one skein wonders, designed specifically for the custom colourway it accompanies. Expect to receive patterns for anything from shawls, cowls, hats, mitts and beyond! Julie and I are taking a lot of care when designing our patterns to ensure that no two months are alike. Variety is the spice of life!
Just like 2013 the Club patterns will be distributed via e-mail through Ravelry. You do not need to be a Ravelry member to receive your pattern, but you do need to ensure that the e-mail address you sign up for the Club with is one that you will check! Club patterns will be delivered electronically about a week or so after all the Club yarns have been mailed to ensure that you have your yarn in hand before the pattern arrives (wouldn't want to spoil the surprise for anyone!)
Club shipments will be mailed out towards the middle of the month (ex: shipment for January will go out mid January). The club colourways and patterns will not be available anywhere else for the duration of the Club calendar year.
Club memberships will be available all year long. New members who join throughout the year will recieve all past shipments with their first package. Be sure to join by the 10th of the month to ensure that you'll get your shipment asap! For example, sign up on March 9th and you'll receive your January and March Club yarns together in March, sign up on March 11th and you'll have missed the deadline for the March shipment and will be mailed your January and March Club skeins along with the next batch of shipments in May.
Additional skeins of Club colourways are available in all bases. To inquire about placing a special order for more of your favorite Club colourway please send me an e-mail at email@example.com.
