Four Seasons of Fibre Club

We’re getting ready for another brand new year of the SweetGeorgia Yarns Fibre Club. Just last week, I mailed out our 12th installment of Fibre Club offerings… members are still receiving them so I won’t be posting photos of it yet…. but you can follow along on the Ravelry group! Having never offered a fibre club before, I have had so much fun this past year thinking of things to dye and showcase. I’ve had the chance to play with all sorts of fibres that I rarely work with… including Falkland (which seems to be popular with spinners), Shetland, tussah silk and Tencel.

December 2009 Installment: Falkland wool dyed up in “Winter Spice”

December 2009 Installment: Tough Love Sock dyed up in “Winter Spice”

Occasionally this past year, I’ve had a couple fibre club members subscribe but not realize that it was actually spinning fibre. And since they didn’t actually know how to spin, I was perfectly happy to dye up some sock yarn skeins as substitutes for the fibre.

November 2009 Installment: Wensleydale dyed up in “Sea to Sky” (one of three fibres in the installment)
November 2009 Installment: Superwash BFL dyed up in “Sea to Sky” (one of three fibres in the installment)

I’m enjoying the creative freedom in being able to dye new colourways and play with some luxurious new blends. I’m even tempted to offer a “Yarn Club” type subscription if enough people are interested.

Want to join us for our second year of Fibre Club? We’re taking new subscriptions now on the online shop and you can always follow along with our Ravelry group. The Fibre Club members have all been so positive and active about spinning up their fibre and posting photos. Reminds me that I need to finish spinning the Wensleydale in my own set of November fibres.

    If you offered up a yarn club, I’d be there! I don’t really have time for spinning (or learning how to spin on a wheel) until I’m done grad school… in August!

      Hi Gemini!

      I’d be willing to dye up your Fibre Club as a Yarn Club if you like!
      I’ve done that in the past and given the member different types of
      sock yarn, or if there is a different yarn base you’d like. Just let
      me know! I’m pretty flexible.

      Hope you are enjoying grad school! … it would make me very envious
      if you said you had time to knit during lectures….. :P

      Best,
      Felicia

    I’d also be interested in a yarn club, rather than a fibre club, as I have no clue how to spin.

    My 4-year-old desperately wants to learn to spin though… we’ll see if that desire sticks. :)

    Oh, I really want to sign up for the next Fibre Club! I don’t know how to spin though. Could I place an order and just make a PayPal note that I’d like my fibre spun for me?
    If you don’t have the time to do that, I totally understand!

    Yes, please… a yarn club would be fabulous! Is your offer to do Fiber Club as a pseudo-yarn club available for the May session?
